As we emerge from what feels like a collective trauma/ depression (and hopefully a post-pandemic world), we thought we'd try our hand at a soap with "mood-enhancing" properties.
Because I think we could use all the help we can get right now.
We researched essential oil and herb combinations that are said to do that - improve your mood! What we landed on is a pretty interesting scent combination: a little spicy, a little citrusy, a little funky. And if that can't put you into a good mood, then you're probably in the wrong place. Or maybe you just don't like this soap, which is fine.
This soap also contains locally foraged St. John's Wort. St. John's Wort is commonly used as a supplement (taken internally) to help treat depression and mood disorders. There is not much evidence to suggest that the herb can be absorbed through the skin AND we don't recommend that you consume this soap orally, we thought it would be a positive if just symbolic addition to this "uplifting" soap.
Mood enhancing, slightly exfoliating (but only a tiny bit)
Saponified oils of organic coconut oil, organic olive oil, grapeseed oil, essential oil blend: lime, black pepper, frankincense, orange, St. John's Wort.
