Handcrafted Dark Patchouli Soap

January 22, 2012

Handcrafted Dark Patchouli Soap swirled with clays and charcoal!

Available starting January 28, and as promised, before Valentines Day: Dark Patchouli Soap!   I make this limited edition of soap every year for patchouli lovers.   Only 29 bars are available each year.

I photographed my soap on a tie-dyed scarf made by fellow H-burg Farmers Market vendor Krista of Cosmic Earth.  Krista specializes in tie-dye clothing and all things very cool.   I’ve bought several scarves to cheer up my heavy winter coats and bring back a little of the sixties.   Of course I was very young child in the sixties, but I do remember tie-dyed shirts, patchouli and the Beatles.  Surf was up and life was cool.  Peace signs and back to nature.   Indeed life was good!

My Dark Patchouli Soap is made with olive oil, sustainable organic palm oil, distilled water, food grade sodium hydroxide, babassu oil,  castor oil, kukui nut oil, mango butter, aged dark patchouli essential oil and swirled with sea clay, southwest clay and activated charcoal.  It was originally  designed to be coconut free for a co-worker who is allergic to coconut oil.   Coconut is used in soap for bubbles, but babassu oil is a very fine substitute.   This is a quality bar made in small quantities for people that appreciate great ingredients, earthy scent and clay swirls.

What a great gift!  Wrap up a few bars in a tie-dyed scarf and gift to your favorite flower child or hippy patchouli lover!

Krista of Cosmic Earth will not be vending in February, but you may reach her at:  kristashine@hotmail.com

Make Valentines Day be an Adventure and Discovery in Fine Soap!

    I LOVE these soaps!! I have bought Lor’s soaps for several years now and have always been very pleased with the beauty, quality, and function of the soaps. The scents awaken the senses, and just make you smile. They are great gifts, too! Thanks, Lori.

      Thanks! My farmer’s market customers make my world go round! You couldn’t ask for a better life style. Making soap and my local farmers market keeps the dark days away.
