Practical Magic Black Soap


Practical Magic Black Soap -  Inspired from the description in Alice Hoffman's Magic Lessons book.  "She made her own black soap every March, enough to last the year long...Maria had written down this recipe in her Grimoire, for this soap was most often asked for by the women from town."  "Made with infused licorice-oil, honey, and clove with dried lavender for luck and rosemary for remembrance."

This luxurious triple butter and milk/cream soap has cocoa butter, shea, and mango seed butter, along with coconut milk and coconut cream.  Made with licorice root and clove infused olive oil, tamanu, meadowfoam seed, and evening primrose oils.  Bee free honey, African black soap and activated charcoal have also been added.

Scented with lavender, rosemary, and clove essential oils.  Top with dried lavender and rose petals.
