Nothing but black soaps. The most authentic looking soaps in the range. These soaps used a genuine Whitby dactylioceras ammonite to make the first mould. Both soap and moulds are made at Mount House. The little ammonite soaps contain natural ingredients and are scented with essential oils.
In the box of four, there are two Black Clay & Rosemary and two Black Clay & Lavender. The ingredients lists are below and printed on the outer wrapper of the box.
Six soaps are wrapped together in black tissue paper, sealed with a Mount House sticker and packed with an information card. The outer sleeve is a translucent vellum paper.
The original Whitby dactylioceras ammonite came from Byron Blessed at Natural Wonders Ltd. Whitby.
As rosemary and lavender grow happily in the garden at Mount House, rosemary or lavender essential oils were used for the scent along with a bit of warming cedarwood. Bladderwrack seaweed adds nutrients not found in land plants. Black soaps can be a bit messy due to the charcoal and black clay. Avoid use with white flannels. The black glossiness of the black soaps is pleasing - and useful for washing really dirty hands after gardening as the dirt does not show on the dried soap. A farrier friend whose work means filthy hands are unavoidable is a particular fan of this soap.
Minimum weight of each soap = 20 g, diameter approx. 5 cm
