I wanted to create a soap that conveyed a sense of freedom and the outdoors, so I chose to include virginian cedarwood, cypress, eucalyptus, pine and bergamot essential oils in this blend. I used coloured pearlescent micas for the blues and whites, and powdered wheatgrass for the olive green. It makes me think of how our earth looks like from outer space, actually! :p
There’s also a back story to this soap. I was inspired by a friend of mine, who lost her husband to a freak road accident about half a year ago. I can’t begin to imagine the sense of loss she must feel, even now. But being the wonderfully spirited young woman she is, it is amazing to see her resolve to continue living her life to the fullest, as she always has.
Janet, this one is for you.
Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair.
Scent: Although it’s a fairly elaborate mix of scents (by my standards, anyway), you’ll catch the eucalyptus and pine combo first, but later notice the more woodsy undertones from the rest of the essential oils.
Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.
