Sierra Nevada CedarSoap / Sierra Summer Pine
California's high Sierra is perhaps the most widely loved and jealously guarded mountain range in America. Its deep heart of wilderness has been the fuel of inspiration for generations of wilderness activists including such greats as John Muir, Gary Snyder, and David Brower. This soap smells like the Sierra because it is made from the spicy smelling leaves of Incense Cedar which blanket its western flanks. This is the real smell of warm summer evenings in the meadows along the Tuolumne River, or of stumbling out of your sleeping bag in the middle of the night, with the impossibly cold, wood-smoke Sierra air lighting up your senses. This richly lathering bar soap will gently cleanse your skin while imparting the spicy and long-lasting fragrance of rich and natural Cedar. Includes notes of Pine Sap, Wood Stove, and Mountain Cabin.
Siskiyou CedarSoap/ Port Orford Cedar Also called "Ginger Cedar" for its highly unusual, spicy odor, Port Orford cedar is found only in the tangled knot of coastal mountains in northern California and southern Oregon known as the Klamath region. Its soothing odor is extremely evocative and was said to have strongly affected 19th-century seamen who sailed schooners made from the fresh wood - "the odor grew and grew on them till they were almost made with it" (Donald Peattie). I hope it doesn't drive you mad! While many soaps claim to be "cedar" scented, this soap is the only one you will find with the distinct smell of Port Orford Cedar and the distinct feeling of the gorgeous, rugged country of the Klamath region in which it grows.
Cascade Glacier Fresh from the mountains of the Pacific Northwest…Cascade Glacier Scent Notes: Fresh Snow, Citrus, High Mountain Meadow. A very mild soap.
White SageSoap / San Jacinto
Incredibly strong and aromatic. It is popular across the Southwest where it is used in Native American purification rituals. Its beautiful leaf clusters and enormous flowering stocks burst forth in the spring, painting streaks of white against the hillsides and filling the air with the pungent aroma of White Sage. 100% scented and colored with real White Sage.
Western JuniperSoap / Red Rock Canyon
If you've ever been to the Grand Canyon and nudged perilously close to the edge of a thousand-foot drop-off and wondered what that insane tree clinging to the side of the cliff was, it was probably juniper. Juniper covers vast portions of the Southwest and seems happily at home clinging to small ledges on sheer Navajo sandstone cliffs or peeking up between boulders. This scent is the defining scent of the plateau and mesa country of the Southwest. Red Rock Canyon soap made with a fresh, live infusion of Pinion and Juniper - it's just like taking a hike in the red rock country of the southwest. Has scent notes of a desert campground, gin, and tonic, adobe.

TIP: Don't use Antibacterial Soaps. Antibacterial is an additive in many soaps and household cleaners. Approximately seventy-five percent of all liquid soaps contain antibacterial ingredients. According to a study from the Columbia University School of Nursing in New York, antibacterial products do little to prevent illness. Using them in your home is overkill and can create resistant super-bugs. It is much better to just wash your hands thoroughly with a good natural soap and warm water.
