Hiraeth Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - Leaves, Bracken, Wild Rose, Dirt... Weenie Limited Edition
Hiraeth Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
Spicy autumn leaves & bracken underfoot, wild roses & rose hips, & freshly tilled fields in the evening sun
Pronounced heer-ayth, hiraeth is one of those words that is difficult to translate, but those who have it, know it instantly. I think of it as the legacy of the first generation, that bone-deep sense of longing for a homeland that we, as children of ex-pats & immigrants, have never truly known. We grow up with pictures & stories & traditions carried over from our families' homes, a blood strong but strangely filtered connection stretching over oceans & continents. We never truly belong to that home, or to this one, forever feeling gently unmoored. Hiraeth, the scent, is what my homeland smells like: the woods & fields of western England in early autumn, when the leaves have started to turn & fall, the ferns have gone dry & brown under my wellied feet, & the hedgerows are bursting with fat rose hips. The farmers are turning over the fields, & the air is rich with the smell of decomposing plant life & fresh earth. The sun is sliding low along the hills, turning the long grass blazing orange before dusk creeps up from the hollows, & I know I have just enough light to make it down the track & back to the house. Hiraeth is one of the most intensely personal blends I've ever made; it makes me deeply happy & indescribably sad at the same time, & I am honored to share it with you...
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, Mica
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!
