Juniper and lavender scented soap with lavender flowers, rosemary and thyme leaves from my garden blended with gluten-free cornmeal to transport you to the high desert wilderness of the southwest.

Juniper provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, known for it's antibacterial and antifungal activity. Rosemary may also help reduce tissue inflammation that can lead to swelling, pain and stiffness and similar to lavender, has been used to ease stress and anxiety. Thyme has been used to kill germs, and to fight bacterial and fungal infections.

The smoky purple hue was achieved with ground alkanet root. The natural colors you can get from plants is always a pretty incredible surprise.

Named in honor of the place in the Ancestral Puebloans' community of the descent into the kiva chamber as ritual location for ceremonial rites, community gatherings, political decision making, and it’s role in harvest festivals and inspired by a hike to the ruins of cliff dwellings in New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness many years ago - a place of profound experience for me in connecting to our country’s First Nations ancestors on occupied land.

Cold process soap made with a vegan, palm-oil free base of olive oil and coconut oil.
