Road to Samarkand Cold Process Soap

Everything about this batch is taken from the Silk Road, which (fun fact) was never called the Silk Road when it was in place, it was just called the Road to Samarkand. Because that's pretty much what it was; the general direction in which one would travel to get to the shining epicenter of trade and culture that was Samarkand, now Uzbekistan.

We've got Moroccan red clay, silk fibers, frankincense essential oil, orange essential oil, sandalwood fragrance oil (because the real stuff is super unethical to harvest), and vanilla essential oil, which technically was introduced second hand to the Silk Road post-Ottoman when the Portuguese tried to find a water route to China and found South America instead, but it smells purty.

The end result is bright and woody and smoky-sweet all at the same time, and actually quite unisex for a history lesson.

About 5-6oz per bar.

Superfatted to 5%, tested on friends, not animals. Each bar comes in its own little muslin bag, wrapped with recycled brown paper printed with title and ingredients.

Ingredients: Water; Silk; Lye; Coconut, Palm, Olive, Sunflower, and Canola Oils; Shea Butter; Fragrance; Moroccan Lava Clay
