These soaps are handcrafted by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration whose monastery is in Clyde, Missiouri. In the chronicles of their early history, an 1882 entry reads, "The Sisters made their own candles and soap." Many years ago the sisters made soap because they needed it. In recent years the sisters have re-discovered the value and joy of hand-made fragrance soap, using modern techniques but with the same careful attention to detail that they use in all their hand-made items of pottery, weaving, and sewing that they have crafted for years. Work and prayer go hand in hand in our daily life. Each bar of soap is carefully blended, individually cut, placed in a cloth bag and sealed with our monastery’s wax logo. Fragrance and essential oils, shea & cocoa butters, olive, coconut, palm, palm kernel, almond & castor oils: these are the natural ingredients which make our soaps skin-friendly and environment-friendly. In addition, each batch contains a few drops of holy water and a prayer for those who will use our soap. "The work of our hands - made for your hands and body."
