Forest Bathing Soap

Regular price $14.95

"Forest Bathing" refers to the Japanese concept of taking time to get out into nature for the purpose of immersing yourself in its calming, regenerative beauty - no literal "bathing" involved (though in the case of this soap,¬†#punintended¬†ūüėĀ). Jokes aside,¬†I've been on a forest bathing hike¬†through our local Parks department- it's a powerful experience and highly recommended.

Back in December of 2019, I received an International Soap Challenge Club Sponsor's Choice Award for a version of this design (shown w/award badge).
I'd been fascinated by our Rocky Mountain Aspen bark markings - especially the "eyes". My 2019 attempt was graphically fun, but I'd always wanted to redesign this soap to feature the trees more three dimensionally, plus include the colorful fall leaves.

This 2023¬†version¬†was a three-step process: rolling tree trunks out of "soap dough", immersing them in a soap canvass base,¬†then topping with a dustpan pour* of vibrant color for the abstract leaves.¬†Here's a recap¬†on this¬†Instagram post ūüė≥

I like the more delicate interpretation of this latest version. What do you think?
