For those who find the scent of plain Sheep Soap to be disagreeable, we also offer a Scots Pine Sheep Soap (aka Scotch Pine, Pinus Sylvestrus). Scots Pine differs from normal pine oil in that it has a pleasing, woodsy aroma that is less obtrusive than oils found in cleaning products, and it has a touch of oakmoss to round out the blend. (Essential Oil & Mutton Tallow)
Like many reviewers, I found that the scent isn't exactly what I'd imagined. The earthy notes are quite strong, but they're nearly overwhelmed by the pine, creating an almost overpowering, yet somehow intriguing scent which smashes you in the face the instant water hits the soap. The sensation is so jarring the first time you sud up the wash rag, you think you're going to absolutely HATE it, but then you grit your teeth for a lathering, and by the time you hit the beltline, there is no shower. There are only ancient pines, moss thicker than 60's shag carpet, and pounding rain. You see, hear, and smell... EVERYTHING. Even the deer tip-toeing not twenty yards away. Dinner perhaps? But all too soon, it's over, and you're rinsing your wash rag. The forest is gone, leaving you refreshed, but missing something you never knew you didn't have. You think the sheep tallow might not have been good enough for your hard water, but the moment you towel off, your skin feels like you just pillaged the wife's body lotion. No, Scots Pine Sheep isn't sophisticated, and no, it sure as hell isn't some snowflake's fruity imitation of masculinity. It's about as unsubtle as soap gets. If you take pride in your case of bubblegum-strawberry-cream-musk body wash, you'd better move along. However, if you laugh at Vegans with a mouth full of streak-burger covered in brisket and wrapped in bacon and happen to be packed for a week of hunting about fifty miles beyond GPS or cellular range, ya might wanna pick up a few bars.

It has a slightly base odor that isn't the Scots Pine or Oakmoss, but it isn't offensive, and the way this soap makes my skin feel is totally worth it anyway. Instead of dry and itchy, my skin is soft and smooth when I step out of the shower. It's much better than the readily available product at the drug store. 10/10, would buy again.

I love the way it feels, just wished it had a bit more scent to it. even during the use, you can barely smell it. -A on 21st Feb 2017
I've used many artisan bath soaps, I can say without doubt that Scots Pine Sheep blows everything away!! The lather or suds that this bar soap offers is above and beyond what everyone else is doing.
The scent is awesome. The price is even better. So much better I just ordered another bar. I'd like to tell you not to buy a bar so I can have it all. But that would be mean. Kerry on 21st Jan 2017
This soap has a wonderful scent. This is the most moisturizing bar soap that I have found. Even much better than mitchell's wool fat bath soap. This soap lathers easily and one bar will last for a really long time. Unknown on 3rd Dec 2016
I feel like I am taking a shower in the middle of a refreshing pine forest. Great lather and just a wonderful feeling of clean and smooth skin. It's awesome like every other Stirling Soap I have used. I won't use anything else. W. Bishop on 29th Oct 2016
I really like Stirlings sheep tallow and lanolin products. This soap lathers great and cleans very well without drying my skin. Nice pleasing pine scent too. I'll always keep some on hand. I use and recommend the Scots Pine Shave too. Michael on 20th Oct 2016
I'm older now and my doctor prescribed a good bath soap with lanolin in it for my skin. Hmm... hard to find. I came to Sterling Soap since I had used a few of their shaving pucks in the past. This soap, made with sheep tallow and lanolin, has healed my skin after years in the sun and wind. It lathers really well and I feel clean afterward, something that many other soaps cannot accomplish for some reason. I love the scent also - very refreshing! The bars seem a little costly at first, but they're well cured and last a long time - well worth the cost. LarryG on 6th Sep 2016
I had never given the concept of artisan bath soap much thought until Rod included a sample of one of their soaps with my first shaving supplies order. I tried it and was hooked and ordered several of the bath soaps. We have a homemade sauna with an outdoor shower and these soaps complete the experience. I really like the Scots Pine sheep... the scent is great and I really believe in the skin benefits of the lanolin/mutton tallow combination. Jim on 24th May 2016
I have a skin condition. There, I admitted it. Having Cystic Acne and Folliculitis was a huge drain on my ego. A few years back I started caring for my skin and as time went on and products were tried I was never satisfied...
This soap was first sampled as a Shave Soap for me, it was unbelievably forgiving and nourishing for my skin, my face loved it and in no time just by shaving with it my skin began getting clearer and cleaner. As time went on I decided the shave soaps were so good, the bath soaps must be great too, right? RIGHT! The bath soaps are outstanding and this soap has made the biggest and most dramatic difference in my skin to date. To reiterate -- No product I've EVER tried has had the effect this product has on my skin, not even dermatology soaps.
I think it has a lot to do with Stirling's plain whole ingredients, not ingredients manufactured in a lab by scientists. Tim S. on 24th Aug 2015
Wow! I'm very pleased with performance of Scots Sheep Bath Soap. Appearently I have a sensitivity to today's chemical soaps that I never knew about. For years I have had trouble with dry itchy skin. I thought it was just something I would have to live with. Boy am I glad I decided to try sheep soap. No more irritation or itchy skin. I would have given this soap 5 stars if it wasn't for the scent. The pine is a little strong for me. It really reminds me of the pine cover scent I use deer hunting. A hand full of crushed yellow pine needles would be pretty close description of the scent as well. Great product as far as performance goes though! C. Funderburg on 13th Apr 2015
I tried the Stirling Scots Pine Sheep Bath Soap for the first time about one year ago. It has outstanding skin conditioning and a great scent. I order it 3 bars at a time now. If you have not tried one of the Stirling Bath Soaps, you should!
