This Rest, Relax & Recharge gift set holds our popular Rest soap--made with our own garden lavender, chamomile and catmint--and our most popular lotion bar Whidbey Relax & Recharge--made with windfall Douglas fir branches plus our own lavender, rosemary, chamomile, peppermint, and spearmint. As a gift set, they come tucked into shredded wood, are held in a white gift box that is also shippable, and they hold our card plus a gift message from you if you'd like.
Everything we make is made with plants grown or ethically gathered on well-loved and trusted land, by us, here on Whidbey Island or from surrounding areas. This set comes from our Rest & Recharge emotional support family of offerings.
If you'd like to include a Gift Message inside the box, please leave your message in the Comments field as you order and we'll handwrite the message on a small card. If you're shipping gift sets to more than one location, you'll need to do them as separate transactions because I am not currently tech-savvy enough to figure out how to do otherwise. We hope to offer this in the future.
Locals, you can choose Pick Up at checkout to pick up here at Ritual Mischief and save on shipping. I'll email you to arrange a day and time for pick up at your convenience.
Tip for humans: Plants and trees can connect silly and serious and sad humans across all sorts of real and imagined barriers. Let the plants speak. Unlike humans, most trees and plants don't seem to worry about humanity's personal ideas, beliefs, backgrounds, language, politics, orientation, gender, age, ability, generation, history, health status, etc. They respond instead to how we feel in the moment and to our unspoken actions in the world. If you worry that this gift set wouldn't work for someone in your family or community because they believe or think vastly differently than you do, or they're a different gender than you, or whatever that difference you worry about may be, take a deep breath in and let it out slowly, my friend, and think again. Think like a tree. Let the plants speak for themselves. Without words to get in the way, they speak volumes. They've taught us that people are far more complex and interconnected and wonderful and surprising and delightful than our individual worrying minds alone could ever fathom. The plants are wise friends, neighbors, and ancestors for ALL of us. Let them be.
Shipping. We ship in the continental US via U.S.P.S. mail and priority mail. If everything goes well, shipping takes between 1 and 5 days. If the gift is for an important event, especially during the busy winter holidays season (November & December), it's best to allow 10 calendar days, because the postal system can get overwhelmed in places and during certain times of the year. If you're buying for Christmas, for example, we suggest ordering no later than December 15, 2023 to get the gift to someone in time for Christmas. It likely won't take that long, but we don't want to disappoint you if the post office decides to take its sweet time! Orders must be in by noon Pacific Standard Time to reach our post office that day.

Storage and life of the products: To extend the life of the soap bars, store them where they can dry quickly (like on a soap drainer or folded dry washcloth) after use and where they don't get regular spray from the faucet. Unused, the soaps will last a very long time, possibly even longer than you and me. All balms, salves, lotion bars and lip balms should be stored in cool, dry locations. Balms, salves and lotion bars are best within 18 months of purchase and lip balms are best within 12 months of purchase.
Size: Of soap bars: The bars are roughly 4 ounces. Our soaps are made by hand, in small batches, and hand cut by cool women. Size of hand-poured lotion bars: ~2.2 oz (and never smaller than 2 oz). We're not machines, people, nor do we aspire to be.
Packaging: See the Packaging page of this website for details. Soap packaging is made from recycled materials and is recyclable and also compostable. Lotion bar packaging is food safe, reusable, and may be recycled in some areas.
