Made on Tuesday 3/17/20, during a waning moon.
Soaps are often inspired by a moon phase, a day of the week, a season or a Sabat. This one was inspired by a moment in history. A week when the entire world changed. People found themselves having to protect themselves more than ever. By social distancing. By washing. By staying indoors. The future is uncertain. People are scared.
So I created this one for what I'm craving right now. To calm my uneasy mind. To purify my skin from the outdoors. To elevate my mood with it's scent. To wash away the outdoors as well as my fear. This one was for me. And I hope it's something someone else needs too.
A simple lavender base is embedded with a purple ombre rose made of goat's milk. Essential oils of Lavender, Clary Sage, Sweet Orange, Spearmint and Vetiver provide a sense of calm.
Lavender purifies negative energies, relaxes the mind and promotes sleep. For the skin, it is an anti-inflammatory that promote wound healing and helps protect against the free radical that cause wrinkles.
Clary Sage opens the third eye and promotes emotional understanding. It is an antibacterial and natural antidepressant.
Sweet Orange and mint elevate the mood and Vetiver provides the grounding that I think we ALL could use right now!
This is a detergent free soap
