Give in to the Green Fairy! Our Absinthe soap features a base scent of cold water with hints of spice, wormwood, and anise. This is a great scent for men & women alike. There's nothing else like it! We achieved a beautiful matte green using natural colorants, but what would a fairy do without a little sparkle? Micas have been added to the top but will not leave skin "glittery". This cold process soap bar is a minimum 4oz weight and measures about 3.5 in wide, 2.5 in tall, and .75 in thick. This is a hearty bar of soap.
What is Absinthe?
Absinthe, also referred to as "The Green Fairy", is an anise-flavored, highly alcoholic beverage derived from the distillation of various herbs; including wormwood. Traditionally, absinthe is prepared by placing a sugar cube on top of a specially designed perforated spoon. Absinthe is placed in the glass below, and ice-cold water is drizzled slowly over the sugar cube. The resulting liquid is cloudy in appearance. A modern method, The "Bohemian Method" is another method of preparing absinthe for consumption. This method involves setting the sugar cube on fire before drizzling the ice-cold water over the sugar cube. The sugar cube is soaked in absinthe prior to its lighting.
In an effort to reduce the planets deforestation and environmental abuse, all of our cold process soaps are made without palm oil. In addition, we source all of our shea butter from sustainable, fair trade farms. We only use the highest grade oils within all of our soaps, while still staying affordable.
