Lepus Lapis Hot Process Soap - ONLY TWENTY BARS MADE!
Sweet black licorice & clove jellybeans awash in spicy sassafras tea
A silly spur of the moment blend, Lepus Lapis translates to Rabbit Stone! I was experimenting with a geode-like effect using Himalayan pink salt & mica on hot process soap, & simultaneously musing about Easter oddities... It occurred to me that no one likes the black & white jellybeans because they taste weird, & because the black ones look like rabbit droppings, & maybe the Easter Bunny leaves gross jellybeans in his wake... And then I thought about what the Easter Bunny would have in his tea cup, & rooty sassafras seemed a likely brew, given what comes out the other end... and here we are. Spicy & sweet & lightly mentholated, Lepus Lapis is an absurd tribute to the lunacy of the season...
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 in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Activated Charcoal, Mica, Himalayan Pink Salt
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 :)
