Dark Forest Scented Handcrafted Soap!

November 5, 2015
Dark Forest scented handcrafted soap!

Magellan’s Gift™ presents – Dark Forest scented handcrafted soap!

“Deep in the forest gypsies chorus by the light of the fire” – this is a fragment of an old campfire song of my childhood. The scent takes me back to camping and hiking memories.

Magellan’s Gift™ Dark Forest Soap is scented with essential oils of Siberian fir needle, black spruce, fir balsam and a touch of vetiver. The essential oil distilled from the roots of vetiver makes the scent darker and a little smokey. Finely ground vanilla bean has been added for a get-clean scrubby effect. If you love hiking, camping like a gypsy or just love the thought of exploring dark forests – this is the bar of soap for you!

Available starting November 7 online and at the Harrisonburg, VA Farmers Market!

    It was fun to read your 2014 post for a similar soap you made back then :).

    Have you tweaked the recipe much since the last time you made it?

    Dark Forest has been tweaked a little with different essential oils complimenting the Siberian fir needle essential oil. The rest is the same. Thanks for your comments!

    While your soaps are truly “eye-candy” and a work of art, the “Geek” in me jumped when last months blog said you were going to do a blog on Soap and 3D printing. Is Black Forest a result of this? When do we get the “soapy” details?

      Thanks for your compliments and a nudge to get the next blog out! The Dark Forest soap is made with an inverted stamp made popular by Auntie Clara of South Africa. The 3D printing blog was suppose to be out in September, but surgery and my computer dramatically dying (they can be drama queens), put it on hold. I’m still experimenting, but I will post “hopefully” next week.

    I love the reverse stamps on these bars. It is such a simple and elegant look. They are so pretty! =)

      Thanks so much Anne-Marie, your positive comments mean a lot to me and of course I owe the concept of a reverse stamp to Auntie Clara of South Africa.
