Sometimes you just want to feel clean, sudsed up with glorious rich lather and no fragrance to trigger allergies or compete with the scent you'll put on after your shower. We understand and that's why we're offering the Naked Cold Process Handmade Soap. It's fragrance free. Just good old-fashioned handmade soap loaded with all the goodness you need.
Handmade soap is always a wonderful gift, stocking stuffer if you're planning ahead for the holidays, or treat for your coworkers who are probably as tired of harsh detergent as you are.
We love our handmade cold press soaps for frequent hand washing without harsh chemicals but also use it in the tub for all over. I've even enjoyed it as a shampoo on my short hair.
If you haven't used handmade cold process soap before, you're in for a treat. If handmade soaps are old hat for you, get ready for a bar that is gently cleansing and filled with moisturizers.
For longest lasting results, keep your bar stored on a draining soap dish or wire rack so it completely dries out between uses. I like to cut each bar in half and keep one half in the linen cupboard to lightly scent my towels and keep it dry until I'm ready to use it.
Each hand cut bar is packed in a pure cotton muslin bag with a drawstring then wrapped with our label printed on French Paper Company paper. We love French Paper Company because they've been producing high quality paper for generations using hydro power close by in Niles, Michigan.

Opening a drawer to the gentle scent of lavender always makes me smile. I keep a small sachet of lavender in each suitcase when it is in storage, in my knitting basket, and when I have a headache I put one on the nightstand to soothe my senses.
The 3x4” unbleached cotton bags are half filled with dried lavender buds to allow room for them to shift and move which releases their beautiful scent.
Gratitude, cleansing, meditating, space clearing and blessings are just a few of the ways that ethically sourced palo santo can improve your spiritual practice and well being. It’s not incense to be lit because you want a room to smell good, it’s so much more. It is sacred, must be ethical and used with clear intent.
With a long history as a holy wood whose smoke is healing it is no surprise that during the stay at home lockdowns during the pandemic many people are turning to palo santo to relieve stress and create a stronger connection with ritual. It is my desire to offer a Palo Santo ritual kit that encourages you to celebrate the sacred nature of this sacred smoke and offers an option for using sacred herbs as something more than just air freshener.
For decades, palo santo has been my first choice when I bring something new into my home that I want to smudge, when I want to meditate on gratitude or when it is time to do a simple smudge to clear my home. I even use it as an intentional shift from the busy work of running a production studio to sitting at the wheel and making pottery. It creates a threshold between the ordinary and elevated.
Designing a vessel to enhance that ritual was a pleasure. The Palo Santo Burning Bowl will hold the palo santo safely aloft to allow for smudging without the danger of fire from a glowing ember falling onto something unexpected.
