The Tuesday Spotlight shines upon our masculine soap, The Woodsman. The Woodsman was my first attempt at blending more complex scents. I worked with my friend, Beth, and my bean until I thought it was just right. There were many failed attempts, several almost there’s, and finally, the final product I hoped to achieve.
The Woodsman scent begins with a ylang-ylang base, with a sandalwood middle note and a dry down of patchouli and cedarwood. It’s soft, a bit earthy with a touch of wood. It remains one of my favorite scents. I love the scent of ylang-ylang, and I feel like it shines through in this blend. All the essential oils used are lovely for the skin. They help moisturize, break down dirt, and purify one’s pores.
Although we are getting down to crunch time with orders making it before Christmas, it is an excellent opportunity to stock up on a favorite, try something new, or begin a new, more healthful skincare routine. As always, dear reader, stay safe, be smart, and keep washing your hands.
