Gift Box for Men: 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 the four bars included in this box:

  • African Musk

  • Bay Rum

  • Cedarwood & Sage

  • Woodland Bay

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.

    My husband just had Parotid (Salivary) Gland Cancer Surgery. I ordered these soaps for him because they seem to be a gentle soap for him to use after surgery!

    I bought this as a gift for my husband and teenage son. The packaging is beautiful and the aroma of the soap is so nice. I slipped the unused soap bars into my husbands drawers and he smelled his clothes and knew immediately it was his new soap. Quality soap like this is certainly a treat to all ages. My son bathes daily now, which is a bonus too!
