Lavender, Sage and Orange Soap Set, 12.5 oz

$21.00

This beautiful and full soap set includes 2 large soap bars — one lavender and one orange/sage — as well as 6 “matching” honeybee/honeycomb guest soaps

This soap set has a rich story attached to it (scroll down to read).

These soaps contain saponified oils (coconut, canola, olive, castor) and butters (shea, cocoa), and each individual soap may contain the following (based on which soap it is in the set): mica powder, turmeric powder, titanium dioxide, fragrance oil, essential oil, dried lavender, dried sage, and honey.

Please note that the 6 honeybees and honeycomb soaps will be random in each set. Our goal is to include 3 of each design.

The Story Behind the Set:

 

You Can’t Rush Art

by Shawna Marie

It started with seeds in a garden — or perhaps they were seeds in a greenhouse planter. Wherever it was that they started, they started, but they didn’t complete their purpose for a good, long time. It took a long while before the sage plant and the lavender plant was fully grown and ready-for-harvest. But for my purposes, these plants were far from their finished work. So far in fact, that the plants — once harvested at last — had to travel over 500 miles from my mother’s hands to mine. Yes, my mom was thinking of me and my love of soap making as she plucked those lovely-scented branches of lavender, and leaves of sage. She hung them to dry and then sent them north to my house in Pennsylvania. That was last year.

I enjoyed receiving that package in the mail. My husband had commented that the box “smelled like a tea shop”. Indeed, it did! It was lovely!

Well before these events — somewhere else in the world — someone had designed a beautiful soap mold inspired by honeybees and honeycomb. And in yet another place in the world, someone other than the designer, actually created that mold and multiples of it. I was the proud owner of a copy of their beautiful work, as I owned (and own) two of these pretty molds. Meanwhile, my mom kept saying how lovely the dried herbs would be in my soap. So I decided that these two lovely things — the soap mold design, and her collection of dried lavender and sage — were the perfect blend of a future soap in my shop.

It was over the winter or spring that I actually poured the soap, and over the spring and summer that I allowed it all to cure. FINALLY, we are ready to “roll out” this beautiful herb-rich guest soap with matching soap bars to the public! My customers will love these Lavender, Sage and Orange Soap Bars with Honeybee Guest Soaps!

Now if only I had a “Bed and Breakfast”, I would be presenting these to my guests too! But, just like this lesson that you can’t rush art, and it took a while to get these beautiful soaps completed, I am satisfied to think that owning a “B and B” is also an “art” that can’t be rushed.

Pursue creativity with patience and diligence! One day, you just might see a beautiful result!
