Handmade Fine Soap Since 1900s -2010

Santa Lucia Murari Borba was a farmer's daughter from Murari's Borba, born in Italy 1904. She moved to Brazil in 1917 from her home in Tuscany where she had to learn to make soap from scratch and essential oils from the plants out of necessity.

After years of making soap for her 13 children, her family finally convinced her to open a small soap shop in Sao Paulo Brazil where she made soaps with her family for 25 years, those soap recipes found there way to North Carolina last year when I went back to Brazil for Christmas and asked grandmother for food recipes to bring back to NC. While looking through boxes of recipes we came across all her old soap and essential oil recipes.
Here is some of our soaps made from Grandma's batches.
