Scented with: Bird of Paradise, Animalistic and a hint of Dragon's Blood
This soap firstly was created as a custom soap for ornithologist Ralph Powlesland (a neighbour here in the Sounds), but he was generous enough to allow me to sell it to other people too.
If you are interested in details about the Weka bird life, you must read his book.
Here is an article from Radio NZ about Ralph and his work.
The book is a collaboration between Ralph and Agnes Takacs from Laminara Photography (also here in the Sounds).
The book is available here:

Saponified oils: (Tallow, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Castor Oil). Water, glycerine*, Fragrance oil, mica
*Please note that I don't put any extra glycerine into the soap - this is just the glycerine that is created naturally during the soap making process.
According to NZ labelling rules the final ingredients of a product have to be listed.

The wonderful floral aroma of birds of paradise with base notes of fresh fruits.
An intoxicating scent that has clean citrus notes of orange and lemon with spicy notes of clove, anise, pepper, and rose. Notes of vanilla, leather, balsam, and warm musk lead to an unforgettable finish.
Warming notes of amber, incense, vanilla and patchouli, our Dragon’ s Blood Fragrance Oil has layers of floral notes such as rose, jasmine and lilac. Finally, the blend is topped off with light touches of blood orange and grapefruit.
