Athena
Athena
'Athena' is our version of a Castille soap: a true Castille is made with olive oil alone; 'Athena' includes a tiny amount of castor oil as well to help boost the lather (traditional Castille soap lather being very thin). Added to these two oils is lashings of soothing goatmilk and pure lavender essential oil. The colour comes from a natural botanical macerate of alkanet root in olive oil and pink French clay and it has a beautiful patina of pale ash (naturally formed and commonly found on soaps with a high lavender content).  The ash will gradually wash away as the soap is used. And that's it. The result, our most gentle soap. As is the case with a true Castille, this one needs at least 9 months to cure fully, otherwise the lather can be 'slimy'. As we want to make sure it is as perfect as can be, we add the additional three months to make it a full year before offering it for sale. The name comes from the Greek goddess, Athena, who, in her wisdom, gave the gift of the olive tree to the people of Athens. There are two options for packaging.  Please choose one of the options from the drop down list further down the page: Basic packaging: The soap bar has a cigar band label with full ingredient details and is packed in a compostable glassine bag Gift box packaging: The soap bar is wrapped in a translucent vellum sleeve with a handmade paper band and tied with a fine satin ribbon.  It nestles in fine ivory shredded paper in our bespoke ivory ribbon-pull matchbox-style gift box.  Except for the ribbon, all packaging is recyclable.

Bumblebee Distinguendus
Bumblebee Distinguendus
Please welcome 'Bumblebee distinguendus' (Bombus distinguendus) more commonly known as the Great Yellow bumblebee; we have tried to keep the colouring of this lovely bee as close to its natural colouring as possible.  The background colouring reflects the striations of Lewisian Gneiss, the igneous bedrock that forms outcrops in the areas where the bee lives.
