Violet and Willow Bath Whip
8 ounces in a reusable glass jar. Shelf life 1 year.
Grandmother Willow whispered softly into the wind, and asking the breeze to carry her voice to Violet, the Violet Flower Nymph. The breeze followed the scent of sweet Violets in the air, and brushed against the young Nymphs cheek, blowing her hair back, and tinkling her nose. "Violet, won't you come see me?" Violet knew that voice, Grandmother Willow of course.
Violet grabbed her leather hip bag, and her silver blade, a gift from the elves, and headed off into the wood. Not long after she made it to the edge of the lake, she heard the hum of the old tree before she could see her tendrils of branches, that hung so beautifully over the lake she grew alongside.
"Oh Violet! You heard my call! I'm so happy to see you my child," Grandmother Willow exclaimed upon seeing the beautiful young woman face. "Ah, but you are no longer a child are you. Come, come and sit at the base of my trunk so I may see those purple-blue eyes of yours," Grandmother Willow said as she brushed the ground in front of her with her longest branch.
"Hello Grandmother Willow. I'm happy to see you as well. I heard your call and came right away. Is there something you need?" Violet replied as she took a seat on one of Grandmother Willows large roots pretending from the lakes bank.
"Why yes dear, there is something. I was hoping you could plant some of your beautiful Violets at the base of my trunk. I think they'd make a fine display in my shade."
"Of course I can do that!" Violet said as she reached into her satchel, grabbing a handful of Violet seeds. Grandmother Willow roughed up the soil by lifting her roots just a tad, and Violet gently sprinkled the seeds about and pressed them into the soil.
"Why thank you dear, their leaves will keep my roots cool in Summer, and in Spring I shall have a show of delicate purple flowers." Grandmother Willow said as she smiled down at Violet. She continued, "If you'd like to take a few of my twigs or branches, for your skincare potions, I shall not have any complaints. The other Nymphs all whisper about how lovely your elixirs are. Combine my bark with your lovely Violets, and you will have a marvelous ingredient for one of your masterpieces my child. "
"Thank you Grandmother Willow, I will do just that!," Violet replied with a smile, as she began to give Grandmother Willows long branches a much needed trim.
A melange of fragrant, gorgeous skin-loving ingredients come together, to not only exfoliate and smooth skin, but also create the loveliest of fragrances; a cool, refreshing Violet and Willow Floral. The texture of this Bath Whip is truly lucious. I've created quite a concentrated formula, so only a small amount is needed to experience a lush, thick lather, and a beautiful floral fragrance that surrounds you as you bathe or shower. My favorite way to use this Violet and Willow Bath Whip is with my shower puff. I place a quarter size amount into my puff, and larger it up into a decadent foam. You can also use it as us, and apply with your hands, because the thick formula makes it easy to spread the soft, thick whip cream like soap across your skin. A wash cloth, loofah, or a skin brush work excellent too!

What is a Bath Whip?
A bath whip is a creamy, dreamy bath and shower soap. It begins with my handcrafted soap paste, which is created with natural plant oils and a method of soapmaking called hot process saponification. The soap paste is whipped into a lucious base of hydrosols, plant butters and oils, and a natural plant derived emulsifier. The result is a beautiful texture and whippy soap, that is not only very gentle for skin, but moisturizes incredibly well. The formula is concentrated, and only a small amount is needed to wrap yourself in a thick, creamy, dreamy lather, and the heavenly fragrances imbued into the formula by the lovely botanicals used within. The best comparison I can give to describe the Bath Whips, is if you imagine whipped body butter that foams into a rich lather.
