"Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery." - John Ruskin
Icefields Parkway is a highway that connects Jasper and Banff National Park and really is an unbelievable drive. Coming home from our BC trips, we always add a couple hours to an already long day and take this route (provided it's not closed due to excessive snowfall), exiting at the Saskatchewan River Crossing which sees a young North Saskatchewan river that we meet back up with again in Edmonton.
It's fitting then that this scent uses one of my favourite essential oils, Eucalytpus Dives-- otherwise known as "broad leaf peppermint." It takes the best elements of both peppermint and eucalyptus and makes for a sweet, *very* mild and almost buttery take. Since the name "Icefields" demands it, I added in some spearmint, cornmint, peppermint and just a touch of cedarwood and the more traditional eucalyptus most are already familiar with.
There is no menthol added to this soap, but since it's naturally occuring in some of the essential oils used you can expect to find some cooling effect with this soap.
*For the most recent batch (Nov 2021) I've been forced to switch back to powdered green tea extract which has considerably darkened the soap, which you might be familiar with if you've used my V3 base. This is not due to vanilla.
Made with our V4 base.
