Gift Box - Handmade All-Natural Activated Charcoal Soap

Product Overview

This uniquely packaged gift box contains four bars of handmade 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.

These soaps include a special ingredient: activated charcoal. Using charcoal in soap might seem counterintuitive at first, but it  can have great skincare benefits! Activated charcoal can extract excessive oils while also nourishing dry skin. It can also be used to reduce acne and remove toxins!

This gift box includes four bars of soap in these fragrances:

- Mayan Gold
- Sage Meadow
- Morning Dew
- Black Raspberry Vanilla

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 rediscovered the value and joy of hand-made fragrance soap. Using modern techniques, they work 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.

The other gift boxes from the “Soap Sister” and her community have been a fan favorite on Cedar House since their release. These items tend to move very fast and, once we run out, it's typically a long wait as the sisters lovingly handmake each bar. So don’t wait too long to experience the heavenly comfort of these fragrant, handcrafted soaps!
