A Clean Start

Celebrate your next birthday with a bit of bubbly! Mariel Nader's one-of-a-kind soaps were inspired by the shades and shapes of the 12 birthstones. Made with only high-quality, pure ingredients and enriched with invigorating minerals, vegetable-based dyes, and soothing vitamin E oil, these lustrous soaps are handcrafted in small batches without the use of molds. The artist hand-cuts and carves realistic angles and facets into the vibrant soap rocks once they're set in their gemstone-like shapes, giving each one the unique look and feel of an authentic birthstone. Handmade in Connecticut.

Soap list and corresponding birthstones and scents:
January: Garnet - Cranberry & Cedarwood
February: Amethyst - Lavender
March: Aquamarine - Fresh Rain
April: Diamond - Crisp Water
May: Emerald - Green Tea
June: Moonstone - Tulip Bouquet
July: Ruby - Red Roses & Burgundy
August: Peridot - Water Lily & Jasmine
September: Sapphire - Blueberry
October: Opal - Apple & Jasmine
November: Citrine - White Tea & Ginger
December: Turquoise - Grapefruit & Lily of The Valley

Each is handmade and approx 4.5-5 oz. and measures 4"L x 2.5"W x 2"H

Ingredients:
Glycerin, Vitamin E, Aloe, Vegetable Colorants, Fragrance & Essential Oils
May also contain shea butter and goat's milk

Mariel grew up in a very crafty family from Puebla, Mexico and learned many different techniques using various materials, including ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, painting, knitting, masks, candle-making and her favorite craft, soap making. Mariel has a passion for nature, colors and shapes. Very early on she found that minerals, precious and semi-precious stones encompass all these characteristics in a very dynamic way. She moved to the US in 2002 and went to college in CT. Post graduating she traveled around the world for pleasure and also pursuing art courses including one in Florence, Italy where she learned to use different art mediums/technics that later with some imagination she figured out the way to apply into soap crafting using high end cosmetic materials. She decided to embark on a quest for replicating these beautiful gifts of the earth in 2012 and after much research and trials, created these wonderful mineral soaps that represent her passion for nature and craftsmanship. She is now living the dream of working in her creative business from her little studio back in New London, CT.

This is probably the most unique and beautiful gift I've ever gotten someone! I can't even imagine how these are made. They look incredibly real and even prettier in person than the pics. The scent is delightful, the size is pretty decent and the packaging was so artfully done. These also come with a little card/booklet with info about the artist, the soaps and care instructions!!
I'm so happy with this purchase and I look forward to getting more of these for myself (it was hard to give this one away) and for every upcoming birthday!
PS- The recipient was equally amazed by these beautiful gems ;)

The December soap is gorgeous and lovely. Full of color and a beautiful gift. The October soap is a complete disappointment. It is 90% clear glycerin soap with two tiny spots of color. Nothing like the colorful opal it's meant to look like nor does it resemble the photo on the website. I was not expecting it to look exactly the same but it looks like plain, clear glycerin soap. I am not even sure I want to give it to my mom now.

                I wish that the Oct Birth stone did look like the picture online so I was a little disappointed but in the end my mother loved it so that's all that matters.
