Common Threads Soap
I created this soap right around the time Post Master General Louise DeJoy went and tried to dismantle USPS.* 😳 NOW? When 41 states are increasing their #votebymail options for safety during this pandemic? And my Indie business depends more than EVER on a well-functioning #USPS (as do rural Americans)?
Yep - I was doing a little RAGE-soaping, here.
A friend suggested the name "Common Threads" - far better than the angst-y moniker I had in mind. This is REALLY what we want, right? A reminder that we've more in common than not, that we CAN pull together to right this ship aka: our government and make our country 💪 together.
(Rant paused for soap deets):
The design features two main techniques (layered color w/mini-drop swirls) plus an added "suspended droplet" element. Base oils are a palm-free, vegan mix, of olive, sweet almond + coconut oils and Shea butter. With distilled water, lye, sugar + sodium lactate, scented with a clarity-encouraging rosemary/mint + relaxing lavender essential oil blend (and don't we all need a bit of clear-headed calm right about now?). Colored with cosmetic micas, titanium white + activated charcoal.
HEY - NOW's a good time to plan how to have your filled-out, SIGNED ballot dropped off in one of your election office drop boxes, or back in the mail to arrive in time to be counted (no later than 10/20/2020)! Or do EARLY voting in person to avoid crowds.
I love you!
Now be a good citizen: make a plan to vote.
*(Fact: USPS is one of the few government agencies that has a bi-partisan, 91% approval rating)

To extend longevity, keep your Aroma Art bar in a well-draining soap dish away from shower spray. Better yet, use an ecologically-friendly soap lift or soap net to more completely dry your bar between uses.
