Alongside the more comforting characters of the North (like the cheeky gnomes known as the Nisse and dear old St. Nick), there is another presence....
The walls of the palace were formed of drifted snow, and the windows and doors of the cutting winds. There were more than a hundred rooms in it, all as if they had been formed with snow blown together. The largest of them extended for several miles; they were all lighted up by the vivid light of the aurora, and they were so large and empty, so icy cold and glittering! There were no amusements here, not even a little bear’s ball, when the storm might have been the music, and the bears could have danced on their hind legs, and shown their good manners. There were no pleasant games of snap-dragon, or touch, or even a gossip over the tea-table, for the young-lady foxes. Empty, vast, and cold were the halls of the Snow Queen. The flickering flame of the northern lights could be plainly seen, whether they rose high or low in the heavens, from every part of the castle. In the midst of its empty, endless hall of snow was a frozen lake, broken on its surface into a thousand forms; each piece resembled another, from being in itself perfect as a work of art, and in the centre of this lake sat the Snow Queen..."
from The Snow Queen, by Hans Christian Andersen
The iconic Queen of Winter travels the tundra in a white sleigh, decked out in white furs. Her frosty kiss turns the heart to ice and a single shard of her magic mirror will distort everything you see to reflect only the bad and ugly. She is a cruel and cold woman, just like the place she calls home, where winter is the only season, and the landscape is an endless sea of snow and ice. Brrrrr!
Our stark white and black palette is a fitting design, with black swirls mirroring the icy winter winds and the gleaming sparkles of frost atop each bar giving frosty vibes. Frosty peppermint blends with breezy eucalyptus and a blast of fir needle to create an invigorating shower experience! Got the winter blues? Do you struggle to get up and going on cold, dark winter mornings? This bracing scent is sure to get you motivated in the morning!

- Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water.
- Use a wash cloth, loofah or soap saver bag to extend the life of your soap bar.
- Use your soap bar within one year of purchase. I know they're pretty to look at, but they're intended to be used so enjoy them! :)
- Store unused soap out of direct sunlight and away from extreme temperature fluctuations and high humidity conditions.
