Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground Hot Process Soap - Dry Leaves, Bonfire Smoke, Frost... Coconut-Free Formula, Limited Edition
Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground Hot Process Soap
The quiet, introspective side of fall... Woodsmoke, rustling leaves & the dark chill of an autumn night
The night's revelry has come to an end, & everyone has clustered near the fire as the coolness of the evening creeps in from the woods. The coals pop & sigh, & each falls silent, lost in the dance of the flames & the whisper of the dry leaves in the trees. Deep leafy patchouli, smoke, fresh-cut wood, & a trace of frost.
This listing is for one (1) 5+ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free, vegan formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5.5 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Sugar, Iron Oxide, Mica
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :)

I love the smell of this soap!! I am a self-admitted handmade soap addict and I think this may be my favorite ever.
Smells like a hike in the woods!

I am simultaneously happy and sad that I bought the last bar of this wonderful soap! I am in love with this scent, and I love the way it mingles with my body chemistry. This soap is a beautiful sensory experience, and I hope to see it again as soon as possible! <3 <3 <3
Smells like fall!

This is my husband's favorite scent, and I love it too. Living in Southern CA, we don't get much of a fall, and this scent really evokes walking through the woods on a fall night. I bought the "fill a flat rate box" so we could stock up for the year on this one!
