Kumbha Moon Soap Company
Half Moon Soap
The essence is as intoxicating as this bar is dramatic looking. One of our newest original soap bar creations smells good enough to eat (but don't) with 100% essential oil of star anise, typically known for it's licorice like essence. We used our original recipe soap base, rich in skin conditioning oils and butters, and added activated charcoal made from natural plant source materials for both a dramatic appearance and the qualities it brings to homemade soap. Activated charcoal has been known for its drawing and cleansing qualities and is used in products to help oily and acne affected skin. This is a terrific bar if you are looking for an all 'round natural soap bar with an essence that is bold and long lasting.
Ingredients: saponified olive, coconut, vegetable, & castor oils; shea butter, distilled water, activated charcoal, star anise essential oil

Four Thieves Soap
A Kumbha Moon customer favorite! This soap variety is steeped with mystical history. Legend has it that during the Black Plague, a band of four thieves continually robbed graves of the diseased dead and traveled through illness borne communities without contracting the highly contagious disease. The story goes that the thieves were actually traders of spices and oils and had liberally applied a secret mixture that protected them from the dreaded disease. It is said that they used a mixture of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils because of their antibacterial properties and defense against airborne bacteria.
We loved this legend and of course had to create a natural soap bar to interpret the story. While we can't claim that our Four Thieves soap bar will protect you from the Black Plague, we can claim that it will provide gentle cleansing and conditioning, wonderful lather, and an intriguing scent that is slightly spicy and slightly citrus. We layered our original recipe essential soap base with a thin layer of ground rosemary, a thin layer of ground cinnamon and stirred in finely ground dried lemon peel to add gentle exfoliation.
Ingredients: saponified olive, coconut, vegetable, & castor oils; shea butter, distilled water, clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus & rosemary essential oil, naturally colored with turmeric, ground lemon peel, ground cinnamon, ground rosemary

Frankincense and Cedarwood Soap
Three beautiful layers of naturally colored conditioning soap wrapped in the warm herbaceous, and slightly fruity essences from therapeutic grade essential oils of frankincense and cedarwood. We found a beautifully balanced variety of frankincense from India and combined it with cedarwood essential oil made from Texas hardwood. We've had many requests for a soap with frankincense essential oil, so we searched high and low to find just the right source for a high-quality, sustainably product. Frankincense essential oil is distilled from the resin of Boswellia trees and its aromatherapy qualities are reported to reduce anxiety, invite relaxation, and improve mental clarity, Cedarwood essential oil has woody, earthy undertones with slightly spicy upper tones and is known for aromatherapy qualities that help to calm and relax. Our original recipe soap base is perfect for all skin types, and we used madder root powder and dried nettle leaf to add the red and green layers.
Ingredients: saponified olive, coconut, vegetable & castor oils; shea butter, distilled water, frankincense and cedarwood essential oils, madder root powder, dried nettle leaf
