Yarrow & Wild Rosehip soap for courage & love

by Ritual Mischief


For 2023, we added ground Whidbey rose petals (some we wild gathered on Whidbey and some from our own garden) to this bar for an extra dose of rose love in addition to the wild rose hips and local yarrow infused into the olive oil base. 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) and rose's long history of supporting humans in feeling loved and loving. They're also good 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-anger or after-raging soap for my body. If I'm really present, I'll use it before difficult conversations. When I'm my well-rested and relaxed true self (which happens now and then), I might also gift it to someone else ahead of a difficult conversation.

There are so many times in life 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 when you or a loved one need a little wordless help feeling courageous, loved, and loving--whether you do it via this soap or via the plants themselves, in person. 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.
