"Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery." - John Ruskin

Icefields Parkway is a highway that connects Jasper and Banff National Park and really is an unbelievable drive. Coming home from our BC trips, we always add a couple hours to an already long day and take this route (provided it's not closed due to excessive snowfall), exiting at the Saskatchewan River Crossing which sees a young North Saskatchewan river that we meet back up with again in Edmonton.

It's fitting then that this scent uses one of my favourite essential oils, Eucalytpus Dives-- otherwise known as "broad leaf peppermint." It takes the best elements of both peppermint and eucalyptus and makes for a sweet, *very* mild and almost buttery take. Since the name "Icefields" demands it, I added in some spearmint, cornmint, peppermint and just a touch of cedarwood and the more traditional eucalyptus most are already familiar with.

There is no menthol added to this soap, but since it's naturally occuring in some of the essential oils used you can expect to find some cooling effect with this soap.

Our beard oil will draw in and hold moisture that will keep your beard feeling and looking healthy. Your skin is moisturized as well, helping to control beard-druff. Formulated to be less greasy than a regular beard oil while still offering excellent performance. Depending on beard size and frequency of use, one bottle should last you about 3 months.
