A handpainted salted spa soap.
When selecting names for our “friend” soaps we tried to avoid using the actual name of the individual who inspired the soap. We wanted to celebrate the type of person, rather than a specific individual. However, in this instance, the influence for the Christina Salted Spa Soap really is named Christina!
The handmade soaps are crafted with Organic Coconut and Sunflower oils infused with rhubarb. They are packed with pink Himalayan sea salt and lightly scented with a custom blend of essential oils: Spearmint, Geranium, Amyris, and Ylang Ylang). The petals of each bar are handpainted with paprika infused and alkanet soap batters and dusted with organic cocoa powder.
The high concentration of salt in the formula creates an extremely long-lasting bar that will produce luscious lather even in hard waters.
Here’s what Kandra wrote about her soapy friend, Christina:
I first met Christina through a Facebook group for soapmakers. A few years ago I was notified by an online friend that they would be moving to the Denver area. It was a little weird to ponder meeting a person you’ve known for years, but only through an online relationship. When we first met in person we traded soap (it’s a thing us soapmakers do) and we were both so nervous! That quickly faded and we have become dear friends in real life and online. We’ve even had a few “soapy dates” where we giggle like schoolgirls and make soap.
It is a true blessing to have her close by and over the past few years, she’s become such a dear friend. She is such a strong person, yet at the same time so gentle, kind, and caring. This unique blend of strength and gentleness immediately brought to mind salted spa bars. They are extremely long-lasting soaps that nourish your skin and soul with each use.
Do you have a Christina in your life? If so, consider gifting her a salted spa soap! If she’s far away from you, let us send you a bar so you can keep her close with each wash.
