This arrived as a sweet surprise in the mail from Jean. She had mentioned that Mirasol Farm was a favorite Etsy soaper of hers and she thought I might enjoy experiencing them too.
Mirasol Farms operates out of Etsy and handcrafts their soaps organically, sometimes using wild grown ingredients, and essential oils. This sampler set is a great way to see which scents you would enjoy most for $10; your choice of scents. Jean either knows me very well, or I got the lucky random draw. I seriously adore every scent.
Lavender Patchouli marries the best of fresh steely lavender with deep brackish patchouli. This soap chunk lathered like thick velvet. Creamy suds. Using the bar directly on the skin provides a wonderfully scrubby experience with nice exfoliation. Not too rough, not too wimpy. I want a full sized bar in this.
Oak Moss smells ancient and wise, aged oaks drooping with the weight from centuries of moss colonizing among its branches. Strong, greenish bronze and alive. Once wet and lathered, a lemony sage aroma wafted up from the oakmoss. This one is less scrubby, with only a thinner exfoliating layer running through the soap like a ribbon. Great lather, nice rinse.
Rosemary Mint is my peacemaker. Crisp mint leaves, sweet spearmint leaves, and sprigs of rosemary make a head and soul clearing bouquet.
Rosewood Cardamom, if I could have a signature scent, rosewood would be the main note. The ghosts of roses on a sandalwood base are peppered with green cardamom. A romantic delight.
I want to use the last two as well but I also kind of want to save them and prolong my Mirasol Farm experience. I will be buying my own full bar from them very soon though. Thank you Jean for your generosity. I love these! Have you found any Etsy soap gems lately?
