Arizona has a rich Irish culture as many migrated to the harsh desert landscape from the East in the early 1800s. It must have been a shock to the system as they entered the vast desert landscape after leaving rolling green pastures and land rich in water (and devoid of snakes!).
Records show that Hugo O'Conor was the first Irishman in the New Mexico territory, and he established the Presidio of Tucson for the Spanish government in 1775.
We wanted to do a soap to honor St. Patrick's day and the long history of Irish in Arizona. That's how we came up with our Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow soap.
This fun soap features rich kokum butter and sweet almond oil in a base of luxurious goat's milk. The fragrance is a very mild Lychee red tea with soft hints of red apple and vanilla.
This soap is made by combining cold-process soap (rich in goat's milk and kokum butter) with glycerin soap (which is what we use to make the transparent and colored crystals).
The sophisticated fragrance of this soap is one of my favorites - a blend of oakmoss, sage and amber that is beloved by men and women alike!
This soap will make a great gift for those celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Of course, kids and adults both love this fun design topped with a gold holographic glitter that is earth-safe and biodegradable (but remember it will be a slightly exfoliating soap until the gold glitter is rinsed away).
We are happy to include this soap in any of our gift kits. You can't go wrong with this soap after a day in the desert!
