Two sizes to choose from: ~3-ounce hand & face soap or ~4-ounce body soap bar.
I had to grow up to fall in love with rose as a women, and I'm so beyond glad that I got here! These bars are made with ethically harvested wild rose (Rugosa and Nootka) petals, buds, and new leaves and non-sprayed cultivated rose petals, buds, and new leaves gathered on Whidbey beaches, from the edges of Whidbey woods, and from our own and friends' generous rose gardens here on Whidbey. The rose scent is subtle--like the scent of wind-blown wild roses along the sea shore. This soap is remarkably soft and softening: great for the face as well as for the hands and body. It washes sand and dirt away like a champ too. Bonus: we've noticed that for those of us who pay close attention to rose and who have learned to adore her wise ancestral presence, she is calming for the nerves and heart, washing away some of our edginess and stress. Could this be true for you too? We hope so.
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 spray from the faucet.
Size: These come in two sizes to choose from: roughly 3 ounce bars for hands and face and roughly 4 ounce bars for people who asked for bigger bars for their whole body (thanks Angie!). All are made by hand in small batches and hand cut by cool women, not machines. This means most 3-ounce bars are 3 ounce and that the small bars can range from 2.8 ounces to 3.5 ounces. Most 4 ounce bars are 4 ounce but they can range from 3.8 to 4.5 ounce. We're not machines, people, nor do we want to be. :-) We keep anything smaller for ourselves and our families and to give as gifts to neighbors in need and those amazing humans who help make homes for the homeless on Whidbey.
Ingredients: Ethically gathered Whidbey wild and cultivated roses infused into organic extra virgin olive oil, plus coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil, distilled water, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate, rose clay, bentonite clay, jojoba oil, and a rose and geranium essential oil blend.
Packaging: This year, because of the global pandemic, we decided to wrap our soaps and shampoo bars in a small piece of paper to ensure safe handling. If you would prefer no packaging at all, just put that in the comments field when you order, and you'll get them bare naked! If you live off island and we ship them to you, they will still need to show up in a box. We're magic, but not that magic. Yet. :-)
