We've combined our two favorite Comfort & Support family soaps into our new favorite soap just in time for 2024. This bar holds so much heart, courage, & joy! It holds wild rosehips, wild and garden yarrow, garden calendula, and wild and garden rose petals infused into organic oil, plus rose and calendula tea, plus we hand-ground Whidbey rose petals (some we wild gathered on Whidbey and some from our own garden) for an extra dose of rose love. This versatile face, body, and/or hand soap lives in our Comfort & Support family because of yarrow's many traditional uses as a supporter of courage (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual), rose's long history of supporting humans in feeling loved and loving, and calendula's tendency to support and prolong joy. They're also all great for your skin, as long as you're not allergic to the plants themselves.
Insider tip: I like this soap as an after-crying soap for my face and an after- or during-anger or raging soap for my body. If I'm really present and paying attention, I'll use it before difficult conversations. When I'm my well-rested and relaxed true self--which does happen now and then--I also sometimes gift it to others ahead of difficult conversations.
There are so many days when extra courage is needed, and these days, extra support with feeling loved and loving seems to always be needed, by just about all of us. Lean on local yarrow and nearby roses and calendula in person when you or a loved one need a little wordless help feeling courageous, loved, loving, or returning to joyful--whether you do it via this soap or via the plants themselves, in person, or via teas or other preparations. Our relationships with these plants are part of what the world most needs now. And you--brave being--are part of the medicine our world most needs right now, too. No matter what fear tells you.
Storage and life of the bar: To extend the life of the bar, store it where it can dry quickly after use and where it doesn't get regular water spray. Setting it on a folded washcloth or beautiful soap rest is a great idea.
