One of my favorite American heroes is John Wayne, the iconic actor who appeared in more Western movies than I can count. Also, as the daughter of a WWII-era veteran and the daughter-in-law of a (3-tour) Vietnam veteran, I appreciate John Wayne’s depictions of war time, and his dedication to those who served. He loved America as much as any true patriot. The title of this soap is derived from a favorite John Wayne quote: “Courage is being scared to death – and saddling up anyway.”

This bar is to honor those that push past the fear and saddle up anyway.

Saddle Up – a slightly spicy beginning gives way to fragrant tobacco leaves intertwining with creamy vanilla, all on a bed of rich cacao and resinous wood.

Although this description seems to be rather rich, I would classify this bar as lightly scented.

NOTE: The formula for this bar has changed. Tallow has been substituted for Olive Oil and Shea Butter to make the bar less soluble, and extend the life of the soap. Also, because the fragrance contains quite a bit of vanillan, a component that tends to discolor, the design has been adjusted to include some titanium dioxide to lessen discoloration.

Lovingly crafted with Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Beef Tallow, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance, Titanium Dioxide, Propanoic Acid (and) 2hydroxy (and) Monosodium Salt
