The Sword & the Eastern Sky Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
The scent of clarity, focus, & a powerful new day: olive blossom, frankincense, dry tea leaves, & an airy lavender & amber chypre
Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life For me
And I'm feeling good
- Nina Simone, Feeling Good
2020 was a disaster on so many levels, but for me, it was also a year of self reckoning & discovery, of facing hard truths & deciding what I was going to do about them. It was the year that I felt my roots in the earth, took up my sword, & turned my face to the rising sun. It was the year I let myself feel my own magic, & this scent is the embodiment of that energy, airy & mutable, silvery, solitary, self-aware, & ready for anything.
Sparkling frankincense & apricot-tinged olive blossom dawn over cool dry black tea leaves, the morning air crisp and clear with lavender buds, white amber, tufts of moss & cardamom, & a breath of deep cypress. Sword & Sky is fleet & unencumbered, calming & brightening, a firmly planted foot & a an arrow leaping to the sky. Wear it for a clear view to the horizon & a gleaming blade in your hand & the promise of new roads to come.
Sorbetto is a delightfully malleable, scoopable sugar scrub fortified with nourishing rice bran, avocado & grape seed oils & luxurious mango butter. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful...
This listing is for a generous 11 ounces of emulsifying sugar scrub, 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 don't whip my scrubs, so you get a jar packed with product, not air.
I pack Sorbetto in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Sucrose (Sugar), Glycerin, Aqua (Water), Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl/Lauroyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Fragrance Oil, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Mica
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar. To prolong the life of your Sorbetto, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing excess water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :)
Please use Sorbetto within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. I specifically blend Sorbetto not leave a greasy film, but it may leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :)
