  I've been using this for years now and love it. Theres something about it that feels so much better and more comfortable than modern gells etc, I love the smell too. I wash my hair with it and it even works well for washing dishes if the need arises.

  This soap is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I use nothing else, skin, hair and shaving; it does it all. I regularly recommend it to friends and family. The only downside is the price. If I look back through my orders four bars started at £16. This order was £20 for four bars and six months later the price has gone to £24 for four bars. At this rate it won't be long before it has doubled the original price. Coal tar soaps can do a similar job and they are still coming in at under £1 a bar. Unfortunately they don't have the same amazing smell.

  I am always pleased by this soap, it lathers well in both soft and hard water and feels very good on the skin. It also washes hair (and beard) leaving both soft and clean. The smell is of woods and trees a lovely reminder of the outdoors even inside.

  An absolutely awesome product! My skin feels better and it smells so good! My partner has itchy skin due to medications and the itch has lessened. I am very happy with this product and will in time purchase more.

  This is great soap, it can heal minor cuts and you can shampoo your hair so you can cut down on weight with your travel gear and bushcraft kit, it's excellent stuff.

  An awesome product. After only one wash my beard grew an inch longer and my flannel nearly caught fire when I put it on. Supporting testimonials. Nothing gets me more aroused than a smell of an ent coming home from Battle of Isengard. Amy, my partner said it smells like something you would want to sink your teeth in after a rough night out. Justin, my pet beaver commented. Caution when combined with Nordic Summer Pine tar oil balm, it causes the level of raw masculinity to grow exponentially to previously unattainable levels, you will be able to communicate with trees and crush solid rock with the power of your mind. Wild animals flow flock to you like to the Snow White. A perfect blend of charred firewood an ash with a subtle hint of testosterone. 10/10. I would recommend.
