"A royal treasure, if not an outright religious experience."

The Real Thing
These two ancient fragrances have been revered for over 5,000 years. Renowned as the gift of the Magi to the baby Jesus, and even more valuable than the gold the Wise Men brought, frankincense and myrrh offered heavenly sacred scents.
As with all our soaps, Herbaria does not use imitation fragrances. To make this soap, we add genuine steam-distilled essential oils imported from Somalia. These costly oils account for the bar’s premium price. The frankincense is derived from a resin of the Boswellia carteri tree; the myrrh is a resin from the Commiphora myrrha tree.
Swirls of Clay
Finely ground Rhassoul clay from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco is marbled into this bar to provide a mineral-rich toner.
Shea butter, also from Africa, moisturizes and protects your skin.
"I've had to use common soaps, and I just didn't feel as clean as when I use Herbaria."

"I plan to put this bar in every bathroom this Christmas!”
