Hurricane Dorian entered the Caribbean as a tropical storm and rapidly intensified. Dorian passed east of Puerto Rico and headed north toward the Bahamas, where it slammed into the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama Island at a Cat 5 hurricane with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour, the strongest storm to ever hit the Bahamas.

The fragrance still dances with notes of coconut, pineapple syrup, white flowers and a sensual vanilla background. We just reformulated the "look" of our Carnival Calypso Soap to reflect the colors of Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago through the beautiful new swirls! The dual-island Caribbean nation is home to a variety of celebrated music genres born out of the nation’s rich history of dance, devotion and demonstration. Calypso has risen as a national symbol regardless of attempts by the modern tourism industry to rebrand it as ‘tropical’ fantasy. Like our soap, the history of Calypso is much more colorful.

Freshen up your life with the cleansing power of herbal incense!

Smudging is the use of the natural qualities of aromatic plants to freshen up your life & home. Smudging is done to remove bad energy and bring a feeling of peace and clarity. Most people can tell when a place just doesn’t “feel” right. Smudging is said to remedy that.

The ritual of smudging can be thought of as "spiritual house cleaning." It’s not witchcraft, it’s all about good intentions. The practice itself does not require any specific religious beliefs. The burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual groups. The use of incense smoke is practiced in almost all forms of worship.

Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America. It belongs to the same family, graveolens, as Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal and features sweet notes of pine, mint and lemon.

ClOSE YOUR EYES...

Now imagine the refreshing fragrance of a shower in the Amazon rainforest. Unfortunately for us, quality Palo Santo essential oil is too costly to use in soap. Our raw cost for the fragrance alone from a trusted source would be more than $325.00 per pound of essential oil.

But there are certainly other more affordable ways to enjoy the amazing fragrance!
