new batch of peppermint soap from garden of simples


Lovely white soap with essential oil of peppermint. 4 oz, wrapped in parchment and tied with string.

Gentle, soft, wonderful.

The essence of all beings is earth, the essence of earth is water, the essence of water is plants, the essence of plants is the human being.
- Chandogya, from the Upanishads
