If you could wrap the Pacific Northwest up in a bar of soap, I think this would be it.
Detoxifying benefits of natural sea salt from the Hood Canal combine with the relaxing and balancing aroma of cedar wood essential oil to form what is quickly becoming a PNW from Scratch favorite. Men especially love this soap, but it really has been a favorite overall, men and women alike.
Most sea salt soaps are made by dissolving processed sea salt back into freshwater in order to make saltwater or seawater. Why go through all that trouble, we do have saltwater in the Pacific Northwest. 😉 Our soap begins with fresh, filtered seawater straight from Hood Canal. The saltwater is combined with rich, emollient oils during the saponification process. Vitamin and mineral rich Hood Canal seaweed, freshly collected, dried, and ground just for your soap is laced throughout for a mild exfoliating effect. Scented with aromatherapy essential oils of cedarwood and patchouli for a relaxing and balancing influence.
I remember as a child swimming in the Hood Canal, my mother and her friends teaching me of its many benefits. We would swim all day, and then gather around a pot of boiled Dungeness for dinner, our hair and skin salty from the seawater, but feeling and fresh and tired out from all day at the beach. That was part of growing up on Hood Canal. And this is the soap that it inspired.
