What They are Saying

  • Woodsman Shaving Soap
    The shave soap is a real beard buster. The lather was thick and covered the brush and beard well, without disappearing fast. My skin didn’t get irritated either.
    Mike S.
  • The lather of the Mulberry soap is hearty, but washes clean. The warming scent lingers, but doesn't overpower you. I especially love the way my skin, and my bathroom, smells after I use it.
    Kara R.
  • Dandelion Shampoo Bar
    I'm hooked on the shampoo bar from your soap collection! No need to have another shampoo product in the house. My only struggle will be finding enough soap dishes for all your amazing products!

  • My favorite free conference is right around the corner: Rooting DC! If you’re an urban gardener (or dream of becoming one), if you’re interested in foraging, beekeeping, seed saving, food policy, you name it! This is the place. Join thousands of beautiful crunchy people to learn, grow, and cultivate. Learn more at #rootingdc2020
  • Dreaming of my Spring garden

  • Happy valentines encoded in sinewy bark, drippy ferns, and horses with hair like Rod Stewart #pawpawtunnel #candocanal #maryland #naturehikes
  • Today is halfway between winter solstice and spring equinox. It’s a time to usher in the first flowers. A mild day in DC, it’s perfect weather to celebrate this #imbolc — a Gaelic feast day that marks this transition from light to dark and winter to spring. My Bridgid’s cross is made from dry switchgrass and not quite as nice as the ones I saw in Ireland last summer, but you work with what you’ve got!
  • New in the shop: Castile Soap cured for one full year. This simple recipe dates back a millennia from Syria. It journeyed across the Silk Road, reaching far and wide, where it was noticed by Crusaders, and then spread to Europe. Castile soap revolutionized public sanitation and personal hygiene. Even today, Castile soap is one of the best natural and bio-degradable soaps that can be manufactured by hand. The silky lather is regarded as one of the mildest and most moisturizing. It's perfect for babies' tender skin and people with allergies or other sensitivities, even household cleaning. ⁠⠀
