Blackbird Luxury Glycerin Soap
The flutter of ebony feathers, razor-sharp claws. A proud, iridescent blend of sleek lavender ruffled by dark shadows of patchouli & musk.
Deep & heady & a little bit wild, Blackbird blends herbaceous lavender with dark resins, sweet tonka bean & musk, & an earthy bite of clary sage & patchouli. It's a complex, slightly masculine scent, a different & dangerous take on lavender for those brave enough to come near...
This listing is for a huge 6 ounce bar of luxurious glycerin soap, hand cast in small batches with no SLS, propylene glycol, parabens, animal products or other funny stuff! Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too! My bars produce gorgeous, abundant lather & have unique scents that cling gently to your skin. You'll be left feeling clean & smelling wonderful :) I hand-wrap each bar in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerin (kosher, of vegetable origin), Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Sorbitol (moisturizer), Sorbitan oleate (emulsifer), Oat Protein (conditioner), Fragrance Oil, Mica
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar.
*Note that this is the updated scent blend; due to component issues, Blackbird & other PBSW scents will be reformulated in 2018 as supplies run out. Read more about it here: http://paintboxsoapworks.com/blog/2018-reformulations-discontinuations/

Can a bar of soap change your life? You tell me....I first used this soap last October, when my world had just gone to he**. My 93 yr.old dad was dying, in home hospice, and I was his caregiver (I had done the same for my mom just the year before). The day before he died, my 40 yr old daughter suffered a severe cardiac arrest- technically, she died 12 hours before he did- 800 miles away. (Miraculously, she survived, but was left with permanent issues.) Way too long story shortened, I think this soap helped save my sanity! The scent calmed me, and every time I used it this song ran continuously through my head- "Blackbird singing in the dead of night, take these broken wings and learn to fly".....and I knew no matter what I would get through it all. Thank you for creating this!!!!!!

(Sample size) When I first starting using this soap, the lavender scent was strong and raw, the way I like it (none of this frilly baby lavender stuff!) As I used it down the "darker" elements came out in the scent more. And the lather is great, like all the PBSW glycerin soaps!
My favorite soap!

Love the Patchouli scent and the way it makes my skin feel so soft. It makes a shower feel like a pampering session. So glad to have found Paintbox.
Great Soap Great Company

My daughter introduced me to the Paintbox SoapWorks line and I am loving it. With very sensitive skin this soap is non drying and has a rich lather (I even use it to shave) . The fragrances are so compelling yet mild. I give the soaps and the company itself an A++++ rating.

I live the Blackbird scent. It is my favorite I have purchased and they are all great. The lather of the soap is also fantastic.
