The Queen is Dead Hot Process Soap - Honey, Leather, Incense Smoke... Limited Edition, Coconut-Free Formula
The Queen is Dead Hot Process Soap
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.
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 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, Fragrance Oil, Honey, Activated Charcoal, Mica
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 :)

The heady aroma of this soap makes me feel like a goddess every time I use it. I'm very sensitive to scents. I don't like them strong, I don't like them too sweet, I don't like many of them. Scented soaps usually leave me feeling kind of blah. But this. This is perfect. I can only compare it to taking the first sip of hot coffee sitting on a screened in porch on a rainy fall morning. It is a comforting awakening in a bar of soap, and I will never ever be without it again.

I LOVE The Queen is Dead. It's so deep, rich, sweet and seductive. It's strong leather and sweet spiced honey - the description really is spot on with 'swirling smoke'. This one fills your bathroom with scent when you shower and lingers for a little bit on your skin after. I adore it and the hot process formula - very creamy and moisturizing.
My favorite... so far!

The scent of this soap makes me happy, it's a heady, smokey aroma. I prefer the hot process soaps, no issues with sensitive skin and the bars last a long time.

Got this as a present for my sister- The Queen is Dead is her favorite scent and the only soap she has ever asked for by name.
