Close your eyes and imagine if grapefruit and lemon had a baby.. it would smell very similar to yuzu. Yuzu is a citrus that gives off floral, green, tart and sweet accents.
Next we have green mandarin. It's tangy and fresh smelling, with a touch of bitterness, paired along with a neroli like soft floral. It is simply sublime.
Last but certainly not least we have cypress. Cypress is herbaceous, spicy and ever so slightly woody, like evergreen, only better.
Combine the three fragrance notes and you get Citrus Forest.

Create a lather by gently working soap into wet skin. Rinse thoroughly. Allow the bar to dry in between uses. This will extend the life of your bar.

I was increasingly frustrated that the ingredients in my favorite body products were not only unpronounceable and unrecognizable, but also questionable as to if they were good for my body.
I started making body butters using simple, recognizable ingredients for myself and ended up making them as gifts as well.
I run a successful boutique business and love working with customers to create one-of-a-kind, custom products and gifts that are made with love and intention and filled with the peace and serenity of the mountains.
“I make my soaps in small batches, which allows me to oversee every tiny detail of production and put out high-quality products that you can not only feel good about using but that also leave your skin feeling amazing.”
Solitude Soapworks studio is situated on the back part of our homestead, overlooking flower gardens, forests, and the majestic high peaks.
It blends in as only an Adirondack Camp cabin can with a green metal roof and dark brown siding. Very unassuming from the outside but indoors is where the magic happens. You’ll find plants, crystals, and a wall of fragrance and color—it’s a hippie’s paradise, and there is always music playing. (It keeps the gremlins away.)
Our soaps are formulated to be gentle for all skin types, using only the highest quality plant-based butters and oils we can source, and our leave-on body products are made with organic ingredients wherever possible.
