You know the feeling you get from being outside in nature? The calming sensation that makes your soul feel at ease. This is forest bathing. Simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
We want to have this feeling and connection in our soap bars. To help promote relaxation, ease your stress and soothe your skin, body & mind.
Forest bathing is a traditional Japanese practice known as shinrin yoku. The simple method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you whilst breathing deeply. This can help both adults and children de-stress and boost health and wellbeing in a natural way.
Being mindful in nature means using our senses in a way to give us a sense of comfort. Paying attention to the sounds of the forest, leaves rustling in the breeze or birds singing. The crunch of the forest floor as you softly move. Seeing the sunlight play through the branches, the colourful wildflowers blooming or noticing the caterpillars camouflaging. Being present in nature helps ease our stress, helps us to relax and to think more clearly. We have known this for centuries but in today’s modern world, we need reminding and intent to forest bathe.
We wanted to create a peaceful scene of literally taking a forest bath. Taking a vintage cast iron tub out into nature, filling it with water and flowers to create the most beautiful image of serenity. This is our creative way to visually show you tranquility. Using our all natural soap in the middle of nature. The natural connection is palpable. Our products are infused with ingredients from nature and this feeling of forest bathing carries through when you use them.
Being in nature can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us. Just as using our all natural, herbal infused products do the same. Maybe you can enjoy a forest bath sometime soon too.
Forest Bath soap is made with wildcrafted juniper berries and is an experience to feel a connection to the peace of the natural world.
Forest Bath is an ancient medicine of "being in the forest". We were inspired to make this bar while sitting in our trees in the Red Deer River valley, surrounded by beauty. We need to soak up the sights, sounds and silence with all our senses to help us nurture respect for our environment. The desire for peace of mind and an overall sense of well-being. What we all crave in this busy world. It's our intention + desire to pass this feeling along in this bar of soap.
