Rustic invigorating scent with a sharpness that helps cut through the morning fog. Deep notes of cedarwood paired with the almost medicinal notes of tea tree inspire the feeling of nature all around. Incorporated are shavings of activated charcoal soap that is fantastic for oily skin due to its ability to absorb oil and dirt. While attracting excessive oil from oily skin, it also moisturizes and nourishes for those with dry skin. Furthermore, activated charcoal’s ability to soothe redness and irritated skin makes it ideal for sensitive skin types.
Please be sure to always keep you soaps out of sitting water. This will ensure that they last as long as possible.

Hemp Oil also moisturizes without clogging your pores and is excellent oil for all skin types, because it balances out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production.
Lye: is an essential ingredient for the Saponification process of Soap Making. Lye and oil molecules (Shea Butter, Olive Oil, etc.) combine and chemically change into soap and glycerin, which is called Saponification. Once the Saponification process takes place, there is no lye left in the final bar of soap.
Distilled Water: is used to dilute lye crystals, and acts as a carrier for the lye. When the oils are combined with lye the reaction produces soap, water and glycerin. Eventually the excess water is evaporated during the curing phase (This is when the soap is left to dry out). The type of water used is very important. Tap water should not be used. Tap water contains minerals and impurities such as calcium, magnesium as well as organic material. Distilled water or pure water is essential to make high quality soap.
