Wake Up! It's Spring Time!

We know it is spring, when the weather begins to warm up, when little flowers peep up through the soil, awakening from the bulbs they’ve been sleeping in all winter. The beginning buds on the trees, the rain and the general feeling of freshness in the air.

Spring is a beautiful season. It is really a season of flowers. Many kinds of flower bloom in spring. Swarms of bees rush at them. They hum round the opening buds. They hum round the blooming petals. Flowers of different colors dance in the wind. A light breeze blows from the south. It is the sweet south wind. It feels very pleasant. It carries to us smell of flowers and music of soils.

Spring is known as the king of the seasons. Nature appears in her best form and provides us with all kinds of pleasures. It is a time of renewal, is a great time to get a "fresh start" even on something that we have been working on for a long time!!

FSW Articles

First up is our Farmington Soap Works Product Guide. In it, you will find out everything you ever wanted to know about our products and ingredients... What kind of oils we use, how "natural" our All Natural soaps are, and why we select the ingredients we use.

We've also left up our cold process soap article. This used to be our "about us" page, and describes how we make our cold process soaps. Did you know that all of our soaps are cured for weeks before they are offered for sale?

Finally, we've posted an article about pH testing, and our campaign to stomp out "zap testing". We expect this to step on some toes, maybe bruise some egos. But honestly - how can anyone seriously consider using your tongue to test for lye content to be a good idea?
