Halcyon Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - Aged Oak & Teakwood, Honeysuckle, Pear...
Halcyon Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
A rich, sepia-toned blend of aged oak & teakwood, sweet honeysuckle, golden vanilla & ripe pear
Warm lamp light, gleaming oak floors, the quiet stillness of a spring evening spent curled in the parlour with a good book & fine company. Halcyon was inspired by a beautiful piece of music, a score written by Rachel Grimes to accompany a silent film originally made in 1938. The film follows a family as they go about their day, doing nothing more remarkable than eating, gardening, working, living their lives together. It is beautiful in its simplicity, as is Rachel's music. I wanted to capture that feeling of quiet abundance, of home & hearth, of happiness in simple things.
Halcyon begins with a base of oak & vanilla that I've aged for nearly two years. Blended with exotic teakwood, feminine honeysuckle blossoms & sweet ripe pear, it's an unusual but inviting scent that wears so beautifully...
Sorbetto is a delightfully malleable, scoopable sugar scrub fortified with nourishing rice bran, avocado & grape seed oils & luxurious mango butter. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :) This listing is for a generous 11 ounces of emulsifying sugar scrub, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too! I don't whip my scrubs, so you get a jar packed with product, not air. I pack Sorbetto in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Sucrose (Sugar), Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Fragrance Oil, Phenoxyethanol & Tetrasodium EDTA (paraben-free preservatives), FD&C Colorant
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar. To prolong the life of your Sorbetto, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing excess water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :) Please use Sorbetto within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. I specifically blend Sorbetto not leave a greasy film, but it may leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :) Scrub up!

I'm never disappointed by a PBSW purchase. Love the gentle earthiness of the Halcyon scent, and always love the rich thickness of the scrub. Brilliant!

A beautiful, delicate, almost ethereal scent, this is the perfect mix of sweet wood, florals, and pear. Absolutely gorgeous!
