When I started making soap to sell, I wished I could do something with my soap that also celebrated my love of literature - and immediately a soap club based on favorite books came to mind. My first club, based on the Little House on the Prairie books, has been available for a while, and I'm happy to be releasing this second set. Or, if you will, second volume.

Another one of my favorite books to read, even today, is Watership Down. Those of you who have never read it are most likely thinking "oh, that story about the bunnies" and the rest of you are looking for my Contact Button so you can tell me which rabbit is your favorite, and which one you relate to the most (if you're curious, Bigwig is my favorite, but Blackavar is the one I relate to).

This is a set of nine guest sized soaps. Fragrances included in this set are:

Blackberry – Both the name of one of the rabbits, and something nice and special on which to munch. Blackberry was arguably one of the smartest rabbits, working out how to get the snare off from around Bigwig’s neck when trapped at Cowslip’s warren; and figuring out that wood floats, allowing the rabbits to escape on two different occasions.

Clover – Both the name of one of the rabbits, and something nice and special on which to munch. Clover was one of the hutch rabbits who was liberated from the barn; she joined the Watership Down warren and was the first doe to have a litter.

Cucumber Mint – Another scent stolen from the garden at the farmhouse, and I like this even more than the sister fragrance (not in the club), Cucumber Melon. This is cool, refreshing, and just the barest hint of mint. I want to drizzle some vinegar over this and eat it! I like to imagine that both of these were grown in the farmhouse garden, being guarded by the dog who later chased the rabbits to the Down and resulted in the death (or at least, the disappearance) of General Woundwort.

Freshly Mown Hay – In my eyes, the cat and the hay go hand in hand. Paw in bale? I can easily picture the barn cat pretending to sleep on the hay bale, one eye barely open, watching Hazel as he talks to the hutch rabbits about escape. This scent is a little cleaner, a little more fresh, than I remember from hay when I lived on a farm. Still, it’s sweet and clean, like summer.

Fresh Zucchini Flower – Another scent stolen from the garden at the farmhouse, this is a little greener, a little fresher than the Lettuce fragrance. I can imagine rabbits getting in the garden and eating these flowers before they even have a chance to turn into zucchini.

Kehaar’s Sea Breeze – I couldn’t do this without including something about Kehaar, Bigwig’s best friend and protector of the warren. Sort of like air defense, Yoda, and a stand-up comedy routine all in one character. The fragrance is reminiscent of the home of the Black-headed Gulls, with salt-water breezes and just a bare hint of florals.

Lettuce – You can’t have a soap club about rabbits and their lives without putting some lettuce in there! I can almost see their noses twitching, trying to nibble on themselves. Rabbits would do anything for lettuce, which this book illustrates time and time again with stories of El-ahrairah and Rabscuttle.

Rain on the Down – One of my two favorite fragrances of the club, this scent is just a little grassy, a little woodsy, and a little rainy; just what you would think the Downs would smell like after a fresh summer shower.

Summer Silflay – The other of my two favorite fragrances from this series, and unfortunately a limited edition fragrance I picked up. I immediately went back to purchase more, but they were already sold out. This one smells like early foggy mornings and marigolds, with a little bit of dew and summer breeze. Because I have a limited amount of this fragrance, once I've used it all I will not be offering this as part of the set.

Goat's Milk has been celebrated for its moisturizing and skin-softening properties for centuries. Natural vitamins and minerals in fresh goat's milk are easily absorbed into the skin, along with protein, healing rough skin and making you feel soft and rejuvenated when you rinse away the creamy lather.

The base of this soap has a creamy, custard color to it; but some fragrances - especially those containing vanilla - can cause the soap to darken to a tan or even a dark brown. I try to wait until this begins to happen to photograph my soap so that you are aware of what you are getting; however, it does get darker over time so your soap may be darker than photographed.
