A soap, made and celebrated for centuries, that is surrounded by some controversy, pine tar soap has been often touted to help with help with skin conditions like eczema, and psoriasis - but the controversy over whether pine tar contains the carcinogen creosote has stifled its manufacture and sale by home based soap makers. Whether you use a creosote-free pine tar, or disregard the controversy, adding some of this gooey pitch to your soap recipe, with its smoky, pungent, woodsy, leathery scent, is a wonderful soap making adventure!
