Peppermint | menthol | pine, fur, & spruce | relaxing & cooling
After the success of our Washy-Garami Natural Bar Soap with our jiu jitsu friends, I decided that we needed another bar to compliment it. Niaouli oil was my first thought, as it had been suggested with the initial design of Washy-Garami, but didn't make it in the final scent blend. I also knew I wanted something intensely refreshing and cooling, so peppermint oil and complimenting scents were going to be my friend.
Originally called Recovery (that's what I wanted it to be for, relaxing sore muscles, like an express Epsom salt bath), we changed the name to Chilly Willy, because that was what we were calling it behind the scenes and it was way funnier and cooler.
This was my first time putting menthol in soap, but I figured it would have effects on how fast the soap turned into soap, specifically by accelerating it. I wanted to add enough to make the soap cooling, but also give me enough time to pour and come back to add the blue mica to make a really cool swirl pattern without it getting too stiff.
A little more about niaouli oil I mentioned earlier: niaouli is part of the tea tree family, which is known for its anti-septic properties. I chose niaouli over tea tree, because it is much milder in scent and more suitable for sensitive skin. It also better complimented the peppermint, conifers, and eucalyptus in this blend with its more medicinal, lemony scent.
Data & Conclusion:
This bar is the perfect for after the gym, a hot day outside, or when you need to relieve a little bit of achiness. Some of our friends with eczema have also mentioned it helps them not want to scratch as much! The scent is incredibly uplifting and invigorating; and, it makes your skin feel like you got out of the pool on a nice day with a slight breeze. Not overly cooling, however, when left on the skin for a longer period of time, the cooling effects increase.

Chilly Willy really is that bitch! She keeps you clean but gives you a nice tingly feeling.. very invigorating during a nice hot shower! Legit some of the best soap I’ve ever washed my body with 👍🏼
Best soap to stay fresh stay clean, give you a fresh clean after feeling. #imlovinit
This has been the best soap for when the weather heats up. I work in a high temperature climate controlled area then I step out into hellish Las Vegas heat but a shower with this after all that mess is so refreshing! The funk goes away and I feel brand new. It will stay my summer soap.
Hard to find soaps that do not make me feel all oily after using. Definitely love using this for my face and leaves such a satisfying smell afterwards. Definitely recommend.
best soap i've ever had ever fr
