Experience Mayan care with this three soap sampler that comes with a hand woven and crafted Guatemalan textile pouch. Makes a great gift for someone that deserves some pampering.
All of Tierra & Lava's soaps are made using cold process techniques. They are inspired by traditional Mayan practices, drinks and spices. Close your eyes and turn your shower into a peaceful and sensual experience with the sweet, subtle scent of incense and rose or a morning coffee with a touch of cardamom - or even a thermal bath with precious black salt and eucalyptus.
Made as a strong espresso transformed into a soap with the addition of cardamom essential oil and organic cardamom seed from the Alta Verapaz region of Guatemala. The coffee provides an exfoliant and the caffeine helps increase circulation.
Infused with sacred and traditional essences of Mayan ceremonial incense: Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal from the Mayan site Uaxactun. We add Rose Absolute for a relaxing blend of essential oils that smells divine and keeps skin moisturized. Roses are also everywhere to be seen in Antigua - the local market is brimming with a wealth of varieties.
