Cream of the Clays
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!
