Limited Edition Halloween Collection from Crystal Bar Soap

(Available online; crystalbarsoap.com)

YYC-local Crystal Bar Soap just launched their limited edition Halloween collection, featuring soaps and bath bombs with an extra spooooky vibe. Take your pick from great scents like “Web of Protection (black pepper & sage), “The Spirit Within” (patchouli & frankincense), and “Blood Moon” (blood orange & mandarin).

Limited quantities; be sure to order before October 14th to ensure delivery before Halloween. Available at [crystalbarsoap.com].

I am absolutely in love with all of our limited edition Halloween items!! 🕸 We really wanted to craft up a few items to really enhance the spiritual energy that appears every Halloween! • First, we brought back one of our favourite bars from last Halloween! 🕷 “Web of Protection” is made with the stone Spiderweb Jasper and is scented with black pepper and sage essential oils! (Check out our last post of more details) • “The Spirit Within” is brand new this year! ✨ We wanted to create a bar that look as if pieces of a brain were cut up inside… paired with patchouli and frankincense essential oils, this bar has very earthy tones! 👻 This bar is also embedded with a smokey quartz mini crystal, which helps to anchor you to the natural world! • And lastly, this one I am most excited for! 🌙 “Blood Moon” was inspired by the beautiful Blood Moon that graces the sky twice per year! Inside we embedded a large red Jasper stone as it helps one to connect to the earth. ❤️ We created a enchanting blend of blood orange and mandarin essential oils, pumpkin seed oil and organic coco butter to create a super moisturizing bath bomb that will leave your skin and soul feeling at ease. • We only made a few batches of all of these products so make sure to pick some up before they are all gone! 🎃 Order before October 14th to guarantee they arrive before Halloween! Love and light! • #crystalbartribe #washwithenergy #halloween #limitededition #bloodmoon #webofprotection #vegan #handmade #thespiritwithin #crueltyfree #halloweenedition #sage #crystalsofig #allhallowseve

That’s it for this week, but I’ll have a fresh installment for you next Monday!  I do my best to scour the web looking for items of interest to vegans in YYC, but I don’t always catch it all. So if you’re hosting an event, launching a new vegan business, option, or product, or you know about something that should be on this list, send it to info@veganinyyc.ca or you can leave info down in the comments.
