Moon Blessings & New Beginnings soap

by Ritual Mischief


There’s deep magic in the world. Now and then we get to sit in its presence. These summer seasonal soaps are a gift from the generous world of trees and flowers and moonlight and ancestors. They hold pink and white plum blossoms gathered from our old plum tree and a wild plum tree beside it in the spring, and neighbor David’s willow branches gathered in the autumn, and jasmine essential oil (which we never use because it’s rare and expensive and wow do we love it for a special occasion now and then).

Do you have ancestors who danced beneath willow trees in the moonlight? If not, consider becoming that ancestor. 😊 These soaps hold moon blessings from the willow and new beginnings blessings from the plum blossoms. It’s creamy and smells wonderful. These soaps are a special-occasion treat.

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.

Size: The bars are roughly 4 ounces. They're made by hand in small batches and hand cut by cool women, not machines. This means most 4-ounce bars are 4 ounces but they can range from 3.9 to 4.5 ounces. We're not machines, people, nor do we want to be. :-) We keep anything smaller than that for ourselves and our families, to give as gifts at our makers markets and to neighbors in need and to those amazing humans who help make homes for the unhomed on Whidbey, and to give away as surprises and free samples for people who buy our products. 

Ingredients: Whidbey plum blossoms and willow branches infused into organic extra virgin olive oil, plus coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil, distilled water, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate, kaolin and rose clay, jasmine essential oil.

Packaging: See the Packaging page for details. If you would prefer no packaging at all, just put that in the Comments field when you order, and you'll receive them bare naked!
