Product Details


" Doesn't everyone love ammonites? There's something about the pretty spiral pattern. 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 guest soaps contain natural ingredients and are scented with essential oils.

In the box of 6, there is one Black Clay & Rosemary, one Black Clay & Lavender, one Bladderwrack & Rosemary, one Bladderwrack & Lavender, and two Rose Garden soaps. The ingredients lists are below and printed on the outer wrapper of the box.

Six soaps are wrapped together in tissue paper, sealed with a Mount House sticker and packed for postage in an A6 letterbox-sized box along with a postcard with a bit of information about ammonites and soap. The outer sleeve is a translucent vellum paper.

The original Whitby dactylioceras ammonite came from Byron Blessed at Natural Wonders Ltd. Whitby.

It took a long while to decide on the scents for the soaps, particularly the black ones. I mean, what should an ammonite smell like? As rosemary and lavender grow happily in the garden at Mount House, that's what I used along with a bit of warming cedarwood. Bladderwrack seaweed adds nutrients not found in land plants and then there are two white soaps as a balance and a change from the black soaps, which 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.

Box of soaps only. Bowl, nailbrush and flannel are not included.

Minimum weight of each soap = 20 g, diameter 5 cm
