What Is It?

‘It is black, smooth, light and porous and differs but little from wood in appearance. The fumes of it, burnt, keep serpents at a distance and dispel hysterical affections... A decoction of this stone
in wine is curative of toothache...’
- Pliny, Natural History, 1st century AD

Gnarly Bitch Soap

Indulge yourself in the pure debauchery of Anastasia's crations.  Gnarly Bitch has long been a favorite of mine, not only the soap but also the body butter.  Patchouli, Vanilla and Cacao - and sometimes Ana throws in something to throw you for a Neroli!  YUM.  Visit Anastasia's etsy store HERE.
