Palo Santo with Thanaka and Manjistha  

This fragrance is a woody, earthy aroma highlighted by a blend of warm spice, cedar, and lemon leaf with hints of smokey incense. 

Manjistha is known as a magic herb for various skin and health related issues. According to Ayurveda, it has been referred to as a rejuvenative herb, packed with many detoxifying properties. 

Activated charcoal draws bacteria, chemicals, dirt, and other micro-particles to the surface of skin

Thanaka is a small tree in Myanmar that offers a number of benefits for the skin with regular usage. Every day, the Burmese apply a natural cosmetic paste to their skin made from the Thanaka tree that is ground on a stone slab called Kyauk Pyin. This paste has varying benefits that range from skincare to traditional medicine. When dirt particles become embedded in pores, they can make them appear larger and more noticeable. Thanaka is a highly effective deep cleanser which helps to reduce the appearance of pores, removes impurities and contributes to a clearer complexion.

Look and feel: All soaps are made by hand in small batches with natural ingredients, and like any product made by hand, has color differences and small imperfections. Unlike commercially produced products, color stabilizers are not used in my soaps, resulting in bars that will darken as they age. This is normal for real soap, and won't affect its performance.

Extra time isn't spent finishing the edges, shaving off imperfections, etc. This allows me more time to make more soap, as well as a lower price point to my customer. Due to their naturally high moisture content, handcrafted soaps may be softer than the average commercial bar. To prolong the life of your soap I recommend storing it on an open tray with good air circulation and drainage.

Inside: I only use what’s needed to produce a soap or skin care item. Ingredients without a distinct purpose and/or benefit are left out. Most items are scented with only essential oils. Because not all scents can be recreated with essential oils only, some products will contain a fragrance oil. All my fragrance oils are phthalate-free. Items will be identified with what scent or essential oil was added in the ingredient listing. For the oils and butters, organic and fair trade are chosen whenever those options are available.

Packaging: Sourced from recyclable materials whenever possible, the packaging is minimal and functional, to keep the soaps dry during shipping, as well as keep the scents from blending.

Ingredients: Lard, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, aloe vera juice, sodium hydroxide,  Thanaka powder, Manjistha powder, activated charcoal and fragrant oil
