Imported from France to New Orleans in the early 1800’s, Absinthe is a highly alcoholic beverage historically made from botanicals including wormwood, green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs which gives it its bright green color.
Absinthe Orleans Soap offers you the natural ingredients of the spirit without the danger of getting unreasonably drunk. Feel good about an invigorating lather that will not throw you into madness nor make an artistic genius of you. However, the sharp blend of anise, peppermint and lemon balm essential oils could wake you up enough to do something inspiring with your life.
Given the French spirit of the city, Absinthe was nicknamed “La Fée Verte” and gained immediate popularity with the bohemians of the Crescent City where it has since been widely consumed by people from artists to musicians to Storyville madams and your soapmaker.
