The Shamrock Saint - Limited Edition
NB: SOLD OUT IN IRELAND ALREADY
This limited edition, and its companion soap "What's Yer Poison" tell the true story of St. Patrick.
Both soaps start at the same place and are rooted in Vetiver Essential Oil, which has a thick manly scent with hints of earthiness, smokiness, and uncut grass. I imagine Ireland 2500 years ago could have smelled like this. But they end in completely opposite directions. One super smooth, silky, rich & refined; the other: rough, strong, and hard working.
Related, and similar, but also polar opposites.
One symbolizes the Catholics of Ireland, the other the Pagans. For that is the true story of St. Patrick, the shepherd (goat's milk) turned saint (silk). The snakes (charcoal) he drove from the land, in reality, were the native nature-based pagans whom he converted.
Please note the ingredients listed on the packaging may differ due to reformulation. The ingredients listed above are the actual current ingredients.

If you spend more than $50 (USA and Ireland only) we offer Free Shipping from our Pennsylvania location. (Irish orders ship from Dublin)
All of our products are hand crafted in Ireland. However, we ship them in advance to a fulfilment partner in the USA so that when you order, shipping is cost effective and fast.
We post nearly every order within 24 hours. If you order before noon EST - we will try to ship the same day. Average shipping time is about 4-5 days, and we charge $6 which covers shipping and handling. (We make a small loss on this).
If you order from anywhere outside the USA - we will fulfil directly from our Irish workshop.
Unfortunately post in Ireland is pretty expensive but I just pass on what I pay to An Post (€5.95). Hopefully not prohibitive. If you live within 2k of our location in south county Dublin we will hand deliver for free, and if you spend €50 postage is also free.
Thanks for your support.
Every single scent at The Black Stuff is a unique proprietary blend of essential oils, created by us.
