Heima Hot Process Soap - NEW formulation!
A chill, Arctic blend of nose-tingling mint, eucalyptus & hardy evergreens touched with ice
The clouds slung low, scudding across a lead grey sky, threatening to scrape the snow from the spruce-studded hills. His boots crunched along the rutted track and he pulled his hat low against the fine needles of ice borne on the air coming stiff off the frozen lake in the distance. His breath came like smoke, and as he followed the curve of the road he saw the gentle lights of the small stone house come into view. He stopped for a moment, beating his arms against the cold, waiting for the dogs to catch his scent & howl in exuberant greeting. He was home...
This listing is for one (1) enormous 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 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped, 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, Peppermint (Mentha Piperata) Oil, Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus) Leaf Oil, Fir (Abies Siberica) Needle Oil Fragrance Oil, Mica, Hydrated Chromium Oxide, Ultramarine
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 :)

When I opened this to smell it, I closed my eyes- an immediate vision of candy canes being warmed by the big old bulb light on a Christmas tree filled my head and my senses. A joyful, comforting scent!

Firstly, I bought this for my husband. I love this scent - it's bright, it's fresh, it smells appealingly outdoorsy & because it hot process it's not drying on his skin at all. J, who is generally very "ehhh" on just about every soap I have ever handed him to try out ("Just... here. Try this." "What is it?" "It's soap. It's not DIAL, for crying out loud. It smells good!" "Meh.") has just asked me to buy not only one new bar of Heima, but a SECOND BACKUP BAR. It's witchcraft, I tell you.
