We all strive to find the deeper story in the every day life, trying to make sense of it and call out the beauty. Soap making is an ancient, simple practice but proves to be a challenging art. When we started learning the rhythms of forming soap, we didn't want to just make soap to make soap; we wanted to heighten the idea of cleanliness and what it means to be mindful about all the things that go into our own experience process of being clean. You can imagine all of the different processes that each element of the soap making experience goes through to become soap including: honey, beeswax, olive oil, mango butter, grape seed oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and lye. All these things are combined at various temperatures, just perfectly, and then cured for six weeks as it goes through the soapification process. If this isn't inspiring enough, we began making soap around things that have inspired us in nature. We have made a soap that was inspired by our land and apiary which we named our Signature Soap. We have made soap inspired by Bull Mountain in Colorado State Park, called Bull Mountain, and now we are releasing "Bridges" Which is a Soap inspired by The Cache La Poudre River.
From camping, whitewater kayaking and fly-fishing, so much of our Colorado life exists in the Poudre canyon. It was an honor and a challenge to create a soap that did this river justice. Bridges is a four-colored soap swirling together green, blue, white and black in a beautiful pattern. The scent has a unique blend of Bergamot, Orchid, Jasmine and Violet with supporting notes of Ozone, Sandalwood, Musk and of course, Moss. We made it extra moisturizing with large amounts of grapeseed oil and honey. The end product is a soap that makes you feel like you are swimming at Picnic Rock in the Poudre. We are proud to offer our art and poetry to you as we share the places we love.
