Christmas Gift Box: Handmade All-Natural Soap from the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

Product Overview

This uniquely packaged gift box contains four bars of hand-made soap from the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Each bar of soap is carefully blended, individually cut, placed in a cloth bag and sealed with their monastery’s wax logo. Fragrance and essential oils, shea & cocoa butter, olive, coconut, palm, palm kernel, almond & castor oils: these are the natural ingredients which make these soaps skin-friendly and environment-friendly. In addition, each batch contains a few drops of holy water and a prayer for those who will use this soap. “The work of our hands—made for your hands and body.”

The following fragrances are included in this box:

  • Christmas Memories

  • Peppermint Patty

  • Frankincense & Myrrh

  • Vanilla Berries

A lovely photo of their monastery graces the inside of the box, reminding the recipient that they are being held in prayer. In the chronicles of the Benedictines’ early history, an 1882 entry reads, “The Sisters made their own candles and soap.” Many years ago the sisters made soap because they needed it. In recent years the sisters have re-discovered the value and joy of hand-made fragrance soap, using modern techniques but with the same careful attention to detail that they use in all their hand-made items of pottery, weaving, and sewing that they have crafted for years. Work and prayer go hand in hand in their daily lives.

    Best soaps ever

    These soaps are great stored in dresser drawers as they deliver scent to your clothes while eating to be used. They are low foam producers, so you can use them in your jacuzzi bath. They also make great Covid gifts!
