Songbird

SB03

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

Suitable for all but the most sensitive skin. However, those of you who have oily skin may benefit even more from the soap’s combination of essential oils which all work together to regulate sebum production.

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.

Ingredients: Palm oil, canola oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, water, sodium hydroxide, essential oils (eucalyptus, virginian cedarwood, cypress, pine, bergamot), pearlescent micas (contains iron oxide and titanium dioxide), wheatgrass powder, rosemary oleoresin.

      Actually the essential oils are all great for those with oily skin – similar to how Clarity works, which is to stabilise sebum production. But Songbird may be more moisturizing than Clarity because I didn’t use any french green clay in it, unlike Clarity. Green clay is really good for wicking away excess oil from the skin.

      Hm, thanks for asking – I think my product description for Songbird needs to be reworked. :">
