The Russians left their mark on California, especially in San Francisco. One of San Francisco's neighborhoods and one of its 44 hills. Settlers discovered a Russian cemetery on the top of the hill the hill. Crew members from the Russian naval and merchant ships are buried there. Our SIBERIAN SPRING soap bar is an exotic mix of lavender, patchouli & spearmint essentials oils. It's colored with Russian Blue Clay which is imported from the mysterious salt lakes in Siberia, Russia. This clay is creamy and rich and known to purify skin. It gets its blue color from zinc, iron & algae. Mixed with olive oil the clay turns a mellow light green color. It's topped with hand cut eucalyptus leaves, poppy seeds, heather and lavender. It will be in the shop next month.
