The Crofter's Bath Bath Streusel
A dense, dark slab of sticky patchouli & freshly-dug peat, slaked by black cocoa & brisk tea leaves
Thick & black like the soil of the north country, The Crofter's Bath is a patchouli-lover's dream, earthy & rich & wild. With the tannic freshness of black tea & a veil of bittersweet chocolate lurking in the shadows, you've got a scent that is strangely edible, almost like dark prunes, & totally unique.
Bath Streusel is a moist, crumbly treat for your tub!
Bath lovers, rejoice! At last, a product packed with skin-loving butters plus all the fizz & bubble of your favorite bath bombs & bubble bars! Bath Streusel is a delightful mashup of bath melt, bubble bar & bath bomb, in your favorite Paintbox scents. Add a handful to the tub as you run a nice hot bath & watch the bubbles grow! Once in the tub, you'll get the benefit of water-softening baking soda & citric acid, plus silky arrowroot powder & a gentle surfactant. I add a ton of organic cocoa butter & mango butter & a drizzle of rice bran oil to pamper your skin, leaving you feeling undeniably soft & smelling fantastic!
Many bubble baths & bars use harsh surfactants to make big bubbles - great for washing dishes, not so great for your delicate skin. I use sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, a very mild, gentle surfactant that gives great bubbles without wreaking havoc on your skin.
This listing is for one 6.6-ounce jar of Bath Streusel, enough for 3-4 baths. It's 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 pack Bath Streusel in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Arrowroot Powder, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Camellia Sinensis (Tea) Leaves
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar.
To prolong the life of your Bath Streusel, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing any water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :)
Please use Bath Streusel within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. The butters & oils in Bath Streusel will leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :)
A Must For Patchouli Lovers

This is such a great patchouli scent; don't think wispy, head shop incense . . . think toothsome, primordial, and vaguely sinister. It's dark and chewy, a gorgeous mossy patchouli with tea to add a dash of brightness and the cocoa registering more as a velvety "blackness" than a sweetshop. As for the formula, a few handfuls are enough to create lots of bubbles and a wonderfully scented bath that doesn't whack your nose with a bat. I wish this were available as a perfume because I would spray everything with it!

I bought The Crofter's Bath because it was different than what I'm used it. I usually go for sweet scents, and am not a fan of traditional eucalyptus/lavender/clean "spa" type scents. I ended up loving this scent blend more than I ever could have imagined. It's just simply so relaxing. I got four baths out of a jar, and the water felt amazing.
