Two more!

Our latest soap additions for your reading pleasure:

Virginia Dogwood soap - Lovely, sweet, and bright with a blend of delicate florals including jasmine and violet and a light touch of woods, this soap has surprising unisex appeal! Dogwood is a beautiful tree that flowers in spring with either white or pink blossoms and then displays red berries throughout fall and winter. We think we've captured the beautiful fragrance of our state tree in this luxury soap. We hope you'll agree!

Mountain Heather soap - This soap has the most heavenly fragrance and has become our new favorite for spring! Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a floral soap. The scent is brisk, bright, and unassuming leaning more towards being unisex than strictly feminine. Made up of gorgeous hyacinth, heather, and a little touch of herbal freshness, this soap will remind you of an early spring garden stroll. Enhanced with shea butter and sweet almond oil then dotted with lavender buds, you can't go wrong with this one!

2006 Soaps

The first of our 2006 soaps are now available.

Atticus in Argyle soap - Masculine, sporty, and very sexy - this luxury soap with cocoa butter, olive, and hemp seed oils has a fantastic refined fragrance. Scented with French verbena, lemon, sandalwood, ambergris, and a green touch of iris and violet leaves for a very upscale and refined olfactory treat.

Aztec Gold soap
- An incredible, balanced fragrance blend highlights this exotic soap which is enhanced by cocoa and shea butters. The scent is a mesmerizing blend of spices, fruits, and woods including sandalwood, patchouli, and musk. A sweet heart of warm and sunny citrus is topped with vanilla and Mexican chocolate and just a hint of nutmeg. A gorgeous turquoise color is swirled with gold mica throughout to make a mysterious, sweet and exotic bath bar.

Drama Queen soap
- Ahh, the Drama Queen - the person who always needs to be the center of attention, who thinks the universe revolves around her, and manages to have the absolute worst luck in the world. And when you really get to know her, she usually turns out to be a fragile, delicate creature who wilts at the slightest touch of frost. Remind you of anyone? Reminds us of the Queen of the flowers, the rose. We've created a gorgeous, soothing bar that stars the fragrance of Bulgarian rose with lovely freesia, and slight nuances of jasmine and violets. The combination makes a sweet, beguiling soap with delicate fragance and some dramatic color thrown in just for fun.

Kiss My Karma soap
- Hypnotic and sensual - maybe a little bit karmic, this gorgeous bath bar with shea butter and hempseed oil will kiss your skin with wonderful moisture and fragrance. The scent is made up of a blend of patchouli, sweet orange, lavendin, pine, and lemongrass with notes of amber, incense and musk for a completely cosmic bathing experience.

Medicine Lodge soap
- Gorgeous, earthy bar reminiscent of the southwest. Beautiful notes of sage, Canadian fir needle, cedarleaf, and oakmoss are sweetened by fresh, bright sweetgrass for a soothing, purifying combination in a lovely shea butter soap.

Prince of Darkness soap - This wonderful soap has a dark, smoldering, and complex fragrance that is trumped only by the addition of real charcoal to the bar. Charcoal is thought to have absorbent abilities to rid the skin of impurities and bacteria to really deep clean. The incredible fragrance is made up of vetiver, patchouli, myrrh, herbs, and anise giving it wonderful unisex appeal.

Wicked Woman soap - Is she a wicked woman or maybe just a little mystical and mysterious? You may be asking yourself the same thing about this wonderful, sultry soap once you get a whiff of its unique fragrance. With all the allure of a mystical spell this complex scent is firmly grounded with woods including sandalwood and Moroccan Thyine wood, and accented with Egytpian Musk and exotic spices. Then she changes ever so slightly to include red tea, rose, Mexican torch flower, and French Mimosa before moving on to bright valencia orange and Sicilian lemon. A gorgeous, unique fragrance that is very sensual and maybe just a little wicked!

Wild Monkey Love soap - In a word - yum! With shea and cocoa butters, sweet almond oil and an incredible nanner puddin' fragrance, how can you go wrong? Adults and kids alike will love this fun bath bar that's just the perfect ripe banana color and sprinkled with pretty calendula petals.

Winter Solstice soap - Warm and woodsy and a little smoky - like a winter evening in front of the fireplace, this soap has a gorgeous comforting fragrance that is sure to be a family pleaser. Tangy fruits, pine, and a little bit of spice combine with our luxury oil recipe to create a winning bar of soap.

Watch for more soon!
