Our Mystic Rose Soap is absolutely delightful! It is made with fragrant red roses from Maura’s garden. It is good for all skin types and is known to ward off depression and anxiety.
The ancients Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used roses for fragrance and beauty in their baths and medicine. Roses are full of nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and antibacterial properties. The petals contain essential oils that have so many benefits. It is soothing and moisturizing helping to balance out hydration of the skin and reduce inflammation, itching and dandruff. The antioxidants are known to strengthen and regenerate skin, while antibacterial properties fight acne. Did you know that roses have “anti-aging” benefits? Smoothing wrinkles, fading spots and scars with Vitamins A and C that help produce collagen to firm and brighten the skin.
It actually takes up to 2 tons of fresh rose petals gathered first thing in the morning when the essential oil content is at its highest, to make just 1 pound of the oil. No wonder it is so expensive. What makes this soap Mystic Rose is in addition to the highly prized rose we add palmarosa, rose geranium and rosewood essential oils to the soap which contribute a mixture of mood enhancing aromas, antiviral, anti-fungal & anti-microbial properties while boosting healing and hydration for the skin. Did I mention these are also aphrodisiacs? They all blend harmoniously together for a lovely fragrant floral and potentially romantic bathing experience. It is soft and nourishing to the skin and can only be described as Mystic Rose. You must try it for yourself.
We work with madder root to get the rosy color of our soap which varies a little in each batch depending on the temperature and timing that we add it.
Our soaps are hand stirred and cured the old fashion way... time. These will have a cured about a moon cycle before they are ready.
