This soap features the warmth of blood cedar essential oil distilled from the heartwood of Virginia Cedar; contrasted with the cool bite of peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary; lightly touched with cade, a smoked juniper. Minute doses of cypress, basil, nutmeg and pepper give the blend a mysterious depth.

I've never been partial to straight up peppermint soaps, but I really like the wood/mint combo. It's a good one for men, but also for women who like unisex scents or because of allergies steer clear of florals.

Bonfire in the Snow got a great review in the perfume blog Now Smell This: http://www.nstperfume.com/2013/03/15/olive-oud-soaps-scented-body-product-review/

"...I thought Bonfire in the Snow’s scent might be too masculine for my taste, but it turned out to be a just-right balance of minty-menthol notes with quiet woods and a very light hint of spice. I liked using it on a chilly morning, but it would probably also feel refreshing in the summer, thanks to its natural peppermint oil."

As always, I made this soap using approximately 50% olive oil. I've also added organic palm oil to make a hard, long-lasting bar with a stable lather, coconut oil to boost the lather (but not enough to be drying), shea butter and organic cocoa butter for emolliency,and castor oil for more lather. It's gentle, hard, long-lasting and lathers well.

I never use synthetic fragrances or colorants in any of my products. All of my palm oil is organic and sustainably grown on South American land which was cleared over 30 years ago. Please don't contribute to the devastation of Indonesian rain forests by buying soap made with Indonesian palm oil.

Bonfire in the Snow soap weighs at least 5 ounces and was made using the cold process method. I colored it with indigo and charcoal.

I can usually fit four soaps, a deodorant and a maple soap dish into a flat rate box $5.15 shipping within the U.S. If you are initially overcharged for shipping I'll refund the overcharge within 24 hours of receiving your payment. International customers, please convo me for shipping costs.Thanks!

CT residents will be charged an additional 6% sales tax.

Bonfire in the Snow soap: wood, smoke, cool mint. Unisex.
