All the fragrances in these bottles come from real plants/tree boughs and were extracted in-house using pre-industrial perfume techniques: juice presses, converted whiskey stills and crazy copper pipes.
"When I first started this business, I looked everywhere for soaps that smell like real wild plants. But guess what, they dont exist. The closest thing I could find were soaps with names like "Juniper," "Sage" and "Laurel" but these soaps smell nothing like the real plants they are named for because they are scented with essential oils and not with the real plant.
Essential oils are extracted from plants in a complicated industrial process which yields very sweet, perfumey smelling oils. Thats why "Juniper" soaps invariably smell more like Chanel #5 than anything you are likely to bump into in the Grand Canyon.
So I bought every soap making book I could get my hands on, spent a lot of messy days down in my basement experimenting, and eventually figured out a process by which I could get the scent and color of wild plants into the soap by infusing wild plants in the soap oils. These mild, all vegetable oil soaps are the only soaps I know of that smell like real wild plants because they are the only ones that are made exclusively from wild plant trimmings.
I dont use any essential oils, perfume oils, or colors - all the smell and color of the soap comes from the wild plant. So now you can enjoy the aromatic pleasures of hiking in the deep, dark woods of the Northwest or the sage blanketed hills of Southern California without ever leaving your tub."
