This is a very creamy bar filled with shea butter, coloured with mineral pigments, and scented with a unique and mature and complex version of a Bulgarian rose scent. Luxurious in your shower!
Inspiration from our farm... If you have driven in Alberta in summer, you've seen the Alberta's wild rose. On our farm, you find them along fence lines, and through the native bush where critters don't tramp. They are the reason blue jeans were invented! I'm sure I'm not the only farm wife who will make a bouquet of wild roses seem more precious than store-bought long stemmed roses. I remember one day many summers ago, my farmer had to walk home down the road and on the way he picked me some wild flowers from the ditch. He even stopped and talked to the grader operator, while hiding the bouquet in his jacket! That was the nicest bouquet of flowers I remember receiving...even though it was a little crushed-looking!

This is the cream of the crop when it comes to my hand crafted soaps! There are so many nice-for-your-skin things in this bar. You will feel the creaminess that shea butter brings, as well as the sensation of the real (cruelty-free) silk. The clays not only delight the eyes with the blue and brown colours, but they offer lots of niceness to the after-feel you will experience. The Cambrian blue clay is from Russia. It's colour is beautiful and the benefits are more so. Rhassoul clay is also renoun at spas for its drawing and nutritive qualities. Avocado oil is phenomenal for aging skin, and mango butter offers astringent properties that help to cut a greasy feeling. The scent is a popular spa one described as "bright citrus fruits of lemon and bergamot intertwined with leafy olive branches softened with musk and sweetened ever so lightly with vanilla."
Inspiration from our Farm...I was initially going to call this soap "Tonnes" because it had tons of nice things in it. Tonnes--that's the metric version of tons. Us farmer-types sell grains and oilseeds and even our round hay bales by the tonne. There are 2204 lbs in each tonne, and 2000 lbs in each ton, referred to as "short tonnes". It makes me crazy to think in tonnes sometimes--I think better in bushels. A good canola crop in our area is 50 bushels per acre. Our combine hopper holds 220 bushels. Our bins are rated 1650 bushels. Now trucks are different thinking... our little farm truck holds around 7 tonnes. The super B that carries our oats to market is 42 tonnes. A farmer should be fluent in both units of measure. I am not; I need a calculator!
I used two clays to colour this soap, french yellow clay from France and organic olive green clay from Australia. It is an exceptionally creamy, luxurious bar with added shea butter and silk fibres. It is scented with a wonderful clean apple scent.
Inspiration from our Farm... One of the nicest things about living on our farm, is having the space to have an orchard. What sort of things grow in an orchard in northern Alberta? Well - more than you may think! Besides saskatoons, romance-series cherries, nanking cherries, honey-berries, gooseberries, raspberries, we have the most delightful apple trees! My favourite is one known as a Yellow Transparent. My farmer grew it from seed! It must be twenty five years old and it gives the best apples for making sauce. They are a large sized crab apple type with yellow skin and white, sweet flesh! The most refreshing taste in our orchard! A most beautiful and prolific tree.
