Yule | the celebration of the winter solstice, marking the longest night of the year, and the returning of the light. It is a time of reflection, transformation, and hope, as well as rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. Cherish this time of great stillness, taking time to heal, rest, and reflect.

“Yule” artisan soap is a scent blend of balsam, hickory, cedar, suede, cypress, and leather, rounded with notes of earthy patchouli, the perfect warm, wintery aroma. The rich hues of emerald and ebony evoke the darkness of shorter days balanced with snow white and gold drops. Each bar is adorned with a pinecone, frankincense, and a dusting of gold glitter to mimic freshly fallen snow. A genuine clear quartz or citrine crystal is also featured on each soap and will be intuitively selected for you.

All soaps are created using the cold process method of soap making, using nourishing organic oils and butters to pamper your skin.

Clear Quartz | manifest and raise your energy
Citrine | a symbol of light and clarity
Frankincense | for purification 

Specifics

As bars are hand-cut, expect slight variations in weight, with each bar weighing approximately 4.6-5 oz. Each bar will have a genuine clear quartz OR citrine crystal, and will be intuitively selected for you. Crystals will vary in size and may not be the exact one pictured. Use of a draining soap dish is recommended for longevity (sold separately here). 

Ethics

All my soaps are palm-free, as palm oil production has led to environmental degradation, deforestation, and habitat loss for wildlife.

All products are handcrafted in small batches, sourced locally when possible, and working with trusted, reputable suppliers. Nearly all raw ingredients are USDA-certified organic or Ecocert approved, and whenever available, Fair Trade ingredients are chosen.

Soap Care

Handcrafted soaps are naturally rich in glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts water to your skin. While that's wonderful for your body, it does require a little extra care of your soap.

Allow your soap to dry naturally by storing it on a draining soap dish or rack. This allows air to circulate around it and prolongs its lifespan. Keep your soap out of direct streams of water or submerged in water for too long.

Botanical tops are for decoration. Should you have any concerns with botanicals and your drains, gently brush off prior to use, which is recommended regardless. Do take care when rubbing any abrasive botanicals directly onto your skin or remove before use.

Unused soaps should be stored in a cool, dry place. While this does not alter your soaps efficacy, it is best to use your soaps within 1 year, as scents/colors can fade over time.
