Hurray for Sandalwood Handmade Artisan Soap
For years I have been convinced that I did not like sandalwood. After multiple requests I relented and finally created a batch. I was wrong and feel such remorse for waiting this long.
Slightly woodsy, warm and sweet. Hurray for Sandalwood!
Purple, yellow and green clays were used to achieve a natural color palette. Hibiscus powder was also used which produces the lovely tan shade.
Ingredients: Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Babassu Oil, Almond Oil, Coconut Milk, Hibiscus Powder, Kaolin Clay, Fragrance, Purple, Yellow and Green Clay.
Note: Each bar is approximately four ounces. Typically, each bar weighs more. Please note that this is a handmade product. The design and colors vary from bar to bar.
Use: I think this goes without saying but get it wet. I employ the method of lathering directly onto my body, working up a good lather, and then using the wash cloth. But hey, you do you. Also, USE the soap. Don’t put it on your shelf because it matches your décor. If you do this you’re missing out on the best part, and we probably shouldn’t be friends (just kidding, if you love handmade soap then we're already besties). If you experience any type of discomfort or irritation using the soap, please discontinue use.
Make It Last: Keep the bar dry in between uses. Handmade soaps have naturally occurring glycerin, and that bad boy will suction itself down to a flat surface. To prevent this, place on a grooved soap dish. This will also allow the water to drain off. No soap dish? Stand it on its edge. Also, cutting your soap in half is an excellent way to get more out of every bar. I know this sounds like soap murder but trust me… you want the bar to last.
