Taking sauna is a Scandinavian tradition to which our local culture faithfully adheres. It’s a common feature of the homestead and often a necessity out at camp. Though the methods vary, (i.e. birch branch er no) the healthful benefits of taking sauna are numerous. And it’s so hard to go without once you’ve had the relaxing experience.
This soap mimics the classic woodsy smell of a cedarwood sauna, and the addition of rosemary makes it the perfect respiratory aid in the steamy air! It’s no wonder that this is our best selling variety. As many customers have praised, our bars hold up to the sauna heat and are gently cleansing and satisfyingly sudsing too. The essential oils in this blend also make it an ideal shampoo bar, an all-in-one solution for those who like to keep it simple.
A special note for out of town or non-Finnish customers… The proper pronunciation of the word ‘sauna’ is held in near as high regard as the tradition itself. Where I come from we said ‘saw-na’ and thought nothing more of it. But one gives themselves away saying it like that in this neck of the woods! In Finnish every vowel is pronounced individually with stress on the first, so sauna is actually pronounced ‘sa-oo-na’ or ‘sow-na’. It takes a little time and practice, but is worth it to gain the respect of the sauna loving crowd.
Everyday North soap is made ‘from scratch’, in small batches with quality ingredients chosen for their benefit to the final bar. Palm oil makes it hard and long lasting, coconut oil provides a quick, fluffy lather, and olive oil gently moisturizes the skin. Still, goat milk is the most outstanding ingredient in the mix! Loaded with vitamins and essential elements that nourish the skin, goat milk also breaks down the ‘glue’ holding dead skin cells together without drying or disturbing the skin’s natural pH. Thanks to the milk, this soap can ease inflammation and acne, soothe dry and damaged skin, reduce wrinkles, and delay signs of aging. Each variety contains a unique blend of pure essential oils or all-natural fragrance, providing options for all preferences. We proudly offer our goat milk soap and are confident it will become one you look forward to using everyday!
