Winter Spice is a handcrafted soap created by Magellan’s Gift™. It is scented with anise, clove and orange essential oils. It cleans with the scrubbing action of ground rose-hips. Ingredients include: olive oil, organic sustainable palm oil, coconut oil, castor oil, pumpkin seed oil and rose-hip oil. This bar of soap is strongly scented and can be used in the shower as well as in the kitchen as a hand soap.
It has been a busy year and I apologize for not blogging more. I have been very active on Facebook; if you haven’t already, check out my business page! I will try to do more pictures with brief descriptions for your pleasure!
May bubbles surround you!

Magellan’s Gift ™ Dark Forest Soap is scented with essential oils of Siberian fir needle, silver fir needle and a touch of vetiver. I’ve added finely ground vanilla bean for a get clean scrubby effect. If you love hiking or just love the thought of exploring dark forests, this is the bar of soap for you! The first batch sold out in one weeks time, my second batch will be ready in four weeks. Reserve your bar now.
Grapefruit Patchouli soap is back in stock and is available at the Harrisonburg, VA Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM. This is a great time for patchouli lovers; I have four soaps available, all containing dark patchouli. These are listed by the strength of the patchouli: Dark Patchouli, Grapefruit Patchouli, Orange Patchouli and Siren’s Song with just a touch of patchouli. Starting in April, cross your fingers, I will be a full-time soap maker. I will be able to blog a whole lot more . Make sure to find Magellan’s Gift™ on facebook for the latest information and pictures. My goal by the end of summer will be a real website where you can purchase my soap online.
This is the last batch of my Gift of the Magi Soap. It is scented with a blend of essential oils featuring Omani frankincense and dark Kenyan myrrh. The cost of this scent blend has increased and will not be offered again unless next year’s harvest of its ingredients drop. I love my essential oils, but the prices are up and down like any farm crop, then throw in wars and government strife, and the product becomes very expensive indeed. So, I wanted this last batch to be special, as my gift to you. I’ve created a top swirl of charcoal and gold mica and there are only 24 bars. They will be available starting Nov 16.
May your Holidays be warm and filled with great scent. Peace on Earth for all!

A perfect gift for both the fall and winter holidays or an indulgent treat for the morning shower for yourself. Spice scent just radiates warmth and well being for me. My morning shower is my time to ready myself for what the world holds, both good and bad. When my world is rocky and scary, scent helps ground me and my life journeys seem more like adventures. I’ve created this recipe with olive oil, sustainable organic palm oil, coconut oil, pumpkin seed oil and castor oil for your pleasure and mine!
