The Hermit Hot Process Soap - Fir Needle, Rosemary, Cedar & Fennel Essential Oils
The Hermit Hot Process Soap
A woodsy & wild blend of fir needle, rosemary, cedar & sweet fennel essential oils
A little wild, a little weird, & more than a little wonderful, The Hermit is a deep green, woodsy blend of centering essential oils. The sweet fennel adds a gentle twist of licorice over a bed of crushed evergreen needles & resinous bark. It's the scent of old growth forests, of solitude & introspection. Get lost!
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, Local Maple Syrup, Fir Needle, Rosemary, Cedar, Sweet Fennel & Patchouli Essential Oils, Iron Oxide, Green Chromium Oxide, Rosemary Needles
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 :)

I really can not describe in words my love for this scent blend. I always daydream of wandering through northern boreal conifer forests when I use it. It is so calming and soothing to me.

I wish that this fragrance came in scrub, lotion and tarts, because it's so natural and soothing. It's like bathing in a forest pool and smelling woods and spicy, herbal greenery all around you. My dream spa fragrance.
