Soap making is really what started it all.
I still remember the first batch of soap I ever made. I used way too much patchouli essential oil, all by itself, and wow did I love it. The first time I used that bar of soap to wash my hands, I reveled in the moment.
Honestly, before then, I did not pay attention to the simple act of washing my hands or body. It was just something that I did because, hygiene?
After I became a hobby soap maker, though, I paid attention every single time I lathered up. I would think to myself, "Is there a difference in this combination of ingredients? How does this scent hold up on my skin?" I came to live in that moment, to be truly present during the act of washing myself.
I was hooked!
I knew I wanted to share that moment with others. Not *my* moment, exactly, but I wanted others to, just for a moment, think of nothing but the feel and the scent of the washing ritual.
The soaps I make have taken many forms over the years, but for the longest time, they have been inspired by crystals and gemstones. For the past 5 years, the soap line has been called the "Gemstone Hand & Body Soaps".
And while the name did capture the design aspect of the soaps, they mean more to me than just the aesthetic resemblance to gemstones. I picked the scents to correspond to the meaning of each stone to bring you that special moment.
So this month, I am re-introducing the soap line to you as the "Inspired Clean" Hand & Body Soaps.
Each soap is named and designed after a gemstone and associated with a special word to inspire your daily cleansing ritual.
The back of each label features this word and a couple of sentences to tie the stone and the scent back to that word so that you can infuse this inspiration into your routine however you like!
As a small business owner and full-time mom, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and like I'm not doing *enough*. The Bumblebee Jasper inspires strength and confidence, and reminds me that I am enough. It reassures me that I'm taking the right steps and on the right track to be who I want to be. Lathering up with this enchanting scent enhances that inner confidence.
The Rose Quartz sits at my kitchen sink readily available for the numerous hand washes I engage in throughout the day. Every time I use it, I think to myself of what is bringing me joy in that very moment. It's important to meditate on all that is right in life, and remember I have so much that sparks joy.
Take a moment and look through the new line of Inspired Clean soaps and see which words resonate with you!
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
