The Song of Esther is wrapped in blessings and prayers for you and your household.

I have been long inspired by the story Queen Esther, long before I ever made soap. Her attributes of grace, courage, patience, above all her willingness to be an intercessory for others impacted me before the promotion of being a "Proverbs 31" woman.

It is often tempting to take our good fortune and blessings and hang back because we are safe. Esther had this choice to make, to stay safe and allow her people to perish or take action and risk everything.

At any point after she had gained the Kings favor she could have asked for her own life. She never did. She found favor with the King through Divine inspiration, and interceded on the behalf of others.

Envision walking into the halls after Queen Esther has swept through. Lingering on the air are the mingled aromas I imagine where used to cleanse and beautify her to be presented to the King: Sandalwood, Myrrh, Amber, Vanilla, Neroli.

This soap embodies the transition of Haddassah, a lowly Jewish girl, to her rise as Esther, a powerful, Queen of Persia and it comes from my heart to you with a prayer and a blessing.

For Soap:

Soap is for external use only. Keep out of eyes. This is a handmade product, to maximize your enjoyment and the longevity of your bar, keep bar dry between uses, a draining soap dish works best. If wanting to put it away, please allow soap to dry thoroughly and then store in a cool dry container away from bright light.

For Washcloths:

After use, squeeze gently to get rid of excess water, hang or spread flat to dry. To launder, wash with like colors (cold or warm water), do not bleach, and lay flat or hang to dry.

For Sponges:

Soak a cleaning or bathing sea sponge for 15 minutes every few weeks in 1 cup of warm water and 1 Tablespoon of baking soda (increase solution accordingly for large sponges). Then rinse and let dry (preferably in a hanging, breathable mesh bag). In addition to thoroughly cleaning the sponge, baking soda revitalizes its cellular structure for increased durability.

Allow sponges to dry completely after each use.  

Sea sponges naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria, but do not prevent it.  To disinfect your sponge, you can also soak it in:

  • 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup of water.  This will clean and re-bleach the sponge if it becomes discolored from use.
  • A few drops of tea tree essential oil in 1 cup of warm water.  Tea tree essential oil is a very effective germicide and will also eliminate any odor on your sponge.
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar or white vinegar in 1 cup of warm water.
  • 1 teaspoon colloidal silver in 1 cup of warm water.  There is no pathogenic organism known that is not killed by colloidal silver in 6 minutes or less.

Never place a sea sponge in boiling water, microwave, or dryer.  This will harden your sponge.  Never use strong bleach.  This will weaken your sponge.  Squeeze but do not twist or pull your sponge.

If a sponge starts to become ragged, use scissors to trim off the loose pieces rather than pulling them off.  Trimming the sponge to keep it smooth will enable you to get more use out of it.
