Soap making, what’s that got to do with shamanism? I’m asking that question myself.
It’s got more to do with a way of life. I want to know that the products I use have a certain energy. That the ingredients have been honoured, that the earth from where they came has been honoured, that the people that harvested those ingredients have been honoured and that love has been added as an extra ingredient that’s not in the recipe book. An offering has been offered back to the Earth as thanks for the gifts she bestows upon us. The shampoo bars have had a ritual wound around them, they’ve had love infused into them and later when I wash my hair I will feel that love come back to me.
