The root beer scent comes from essential oil of sweet birch. The hint of wintergreen also comes from the birch oil. Old fashioned birch beer and sarsaparilla share the root beer scent.
For years we sold this soap as a premium bar because birch essential oil is costly to produce and purchase. However, in 2017, we have found a reputable supplier with lower cost oil. We pass the savings on to you. Another good reason to love Sassafras Birch.
Ground sassafras root and bark are added to the bar to make a lovely purple shade. The ground sassafras adds a slight texture to the bar.
Like all Herbaria soaps, Sassafras Birch is first and foremost a great soap with terrific lather and moisturizing hemp seed oil.
“I just got out of the shower after using the new Sassafras Birch soap. I LOVE it!!!!! It smells so good. The smell reminds me of my childhood. You have a real winner with this one!”
