Euagassiceras Soap


The box contains a euagassiceras soap wrapped in white tissue paper, sealed with a Mount House sticker, and accompanied by one of two information cards about the eugassiceras ammonite or Martin Simpson who named it, each with a drawing by Jo Witney of Whitby. The outer sleeve is translucent vellum paper.

Minimum weight of each soap = 45 g, diameter max. 7 cm, depth max. 2.5 cm, the underside sometimes has indentations due to air bubbles getting trapped in the mould. The underside is less well-defined than the upper side and middle is lumpy – as is the original prepared fossil.

Essential oils scent the soaps. Rosemary and lavender grow happily in the garden at Mount House. These plants inspired the choice of scent and a little warming cedarwood was added. The soaps contain bladderwrack (bladderwrack adds nutrients not found in land plants), and the more authentically coloured black soaps have additional black clay and charcoal, which can be a bit messy due to the charcoal and black clay (avoid use with white flannels). The black glossiness of the black soaps is pleasing – and useful for washing really dirty hands after gardening as the dirt does not show on the dried soap.
