The Lasabrjotur Difference
Natural soap means all ingredients are derived from plants, which is the standard we use when calling our own soap "all-natural." In defining what natural soap is, we also define what it’s not. A "natural" product is not made with natural ingredients and mixed with synthetic fragrances, synthetic colorants, and synthetic preservatives.
When you take a look at the products on the shelf that are touted as "natural," it may surprise you to find that a tactic known as "selective marketing" highlights the natural ingredients within the product, while trying to distract a consumer from the synthetic chemicals and fillers also in their soaps. Some terminology used on their packaging may look like, "paraben-free", "contains essential oil" or "made with shea butter."
So what makes us different? When it comes to our soaps, we are completely transparent with our ingredients. On every soap page, we list 100% of the ingredients so you know exactly what is going into your skin. In addition:
Our ingredients are chosen based on a ritual application
Our base mix is made with 100% certified organic oils.
Our soap is scented with essential oils.
It’s colored with organic herbs and plant extracts.
We add no artificial substances to our soaps.
Whenever possible, we use organically grown products.
You don't cut corners when performing your rituals, and neither do we when making soaps.

Wanderlust is the strong desire for travel. Exotic scents of five citrus fruits, as well as lemongrass tied with madder root bring thoughts of travel to distant lands, no matter where the witch currently resides. Bergamot’s soothing scent provides a feeling of confidence for travel. Lemongrass’ earthy undertones help to relieve any tension of the anxiety building up from feeling stagnant. Tangerine’s sweet smell will assist in overcoming fear and sadness, while lime’s sharply fresh fragrance aids to alleviate the feeling of listlessness. Blood orange gives a tangy, yet tart scent that is more complex than the wild orange. Both of the oranges give a stress relief, and are uplifting for the spirit. Madder root helps give this soap its beautiful red hue, helping the mind establish the connection of the blood that courses through our veins, and allows us to move. Using madder root for color is a gesture of respect to the multitudes of countries in Europe and Asia that have used the root for centuries. All citrus is known to help lift the spirit, but each oil combined for use in this Wanderlust soap were selected to help with specific feelings experienced surrounding the strong desire to travel. The exotic scent of citrus will allow the witch to be mindful of what is to come, while the madder root and lemongrass will maintain a grounding sensation that prevents the witch from getting lost while wandering.
