I am so excited about my new soap for men! It is called smudge, as in sacred herbs/woods used to burn in smudging ceremonies. It is a combination of mostly cedar and white sage, with smokey undertones from lapsang souchong tea and spicy notes from ginger and black pepper. Cedar oil is woodsy and earthy and is used in aromatherapy to bring strength or a feeling of being centered. Sage oil is sweet and herbaceous used for its balancing, meditative and healing properties. The other woods used were pine (refreshing and invigorating), fir (reduces stress), and spruce (clarifying and vitalizing) are all fresh and masculine.
I can’t wait to show off this awesome new soap at the farmer’s market at the end of the month!
