The Queen is Dead Bath Streusel - Honey, Leather, Incense Smoke... Limited Edition
The Queen is Dead Bath Streusel
The Queen is dead! Long live the Queen! Blackened honey, glossy leather & a glittering swirl of smoke rising from the earth...
This is a truly wicked blend, inspired by the enormous black bees that hold forth in our garden as the earth scorches in the late summer heat... Sweet but sinister, and certainly not for the faint of heart, The Queen is the perfect armor for those days you need to kick butt AND take names.
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, Activated Charcoal, Sugar-Based Decorations
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 :)

This stuff made my skin SO SOFT, and the scent lingered FOREVER. Do be aware that it doesn't make the water too opaque--I used the whole tub (it was my birthday, lol) and while the water was tinted a nice soft grey with gold shimmer, I could see right through it. It didn't bather me, but if you want it opaque, it may not happen! The only thing I would tweak would be removing those little black and gold pieces, just because I'd be concerned about them ending up in like...the ocean, or something (even though they are super pretty!) All in all, five stars--this stuff ruled, and I'll definitely be back!
(PBSW note: all of the decorations I use in my Bath Streusels are sugar-based and/or biodegradable, & dissolve long before they get to the ocean <3 )
