Spring wildflowers are blooming!

Colors of spring are everywhere! We usually go out walking at least once or twice a day, Maggie and I. The first thing I notice as we walk down the street is my neighbors orange tree. Orange blossoms fill the air a with an ethereal, sweet and soft elixir that is so intoxicating. For me, it is a welcome harbinger of southern California, and springs and summers past, all of my life. In honor of orange blossom filled walks, I created, "Simpatico". This cold process soap with pure essential oils of bright Italian Bergamot, coriander seed, warm vanilla-ish Indian Benzoin, juicy Brazilian orange and a whisper of earthy Haitian vetiver. Naturally colored with Australian reef red clay.
