"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.

Love this soap base! The performance is top notch - easy to load, produces and thick and slick lather, and post shave feel can’t be beat. This is a very soft soap so be careful not to over load the brush - a little goes a long way. The scent is mint with subtle undertones of green and wood notes. This is very fresh and natural smelling with just a touch of a cooling effect from the mint essential oils. The perfect set to reach for on a hot summer day!
