So...a Global Pandemic hit our shores right around the time I was immersed in learning a new technique (The "Clam Shell" pour) for a soap challenge. While TURBULENCE feels disruptive, the process of making the soap was actually quite calming (see video).
My variations match the interplay of emotions I've been feeling during this period:
BOLD describes required actions: #socialdistancing #shelter@home. Difficult? Yes - but we can't be half-assed: #wecandohardthings Subtle is the pause to reassess choices and make fresh, conscious decisions FIRE! Speaks to activism: a time to create a new paradigm/system that serves our values and the environment Flow Uncertainty is challenging. It sucks. But it's not forever. We can resist or flow with this moment.
Hang in there, friends. #washyourdamnhands #usegoodsoap

Soap Care: 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. For shipping information, click here.
