Smell Like Lemongrass
“Big Bus That’s Us” is at it again making Super Power Soap, that smells like lemongrass.
Our Castile Soaps are whole body focused and made traditionally.
Cold Process, Olive Oil, and Full Saponification.
This small batch is packed with Super Powers!
Amanita Muscaria (The Fly Agaric) Extract and Artemisia Vulgaris (Mugwort) Extract.
Additional Super Powers in this Soap Bar are Turmeric, Lemongrass, Paprika, and Cinnamon.
We make our soaps right outside of our BIG BUS. 100% Handcrafted from start to finish in small batch’s.
The ability to Handcraft soap in unique locations makes these Bars of soap special. The Traditional method used by our ancestors, incorporating simplicity and herbal science makes this Bar of soap Whole Body Focused.
I Want you to take a Shower, Wash your Hair, wash your Face, wash your Hands. Your Entire Body.
I want you to do all this while allowing the passive diffusion to whisk you away. Meditating on the carefully chosen infusions your body is taking in.
Boosting immune system, antimicrobials, increased clarity and well being ,natural pain killing properties, effective against arthritis, can help purge and detoxify the body, anti-inflammatory, and so much more.
We fully Decarboxylate our cracker dry Lithuanian amanita muscaria before infusing it into the soap. This converts the ibotenic acid into to muscimol. Every small batch of 40 bars is infused with 40 grams of muscaria. So every bar contains approximately one gram of muscaria.
Artemisia Vulgaris or Mugwort
We sustainably wild foraged this mugwort while the Big Bus was in Vermont. It was then dehydrated @105F, giving us 10 ounces of dried leaves and flower. We then 3x infused this into 8 cups of EVOO. 8 ounces of this super potent EVOO extract was used in 20 bars. This gives each bar 1.75 grams of infused mugwort leaves & flower.
Mugwort, also known as ssuk in Korean- has a long and rich history in Korean medicine and skin care.
Known as a healing herb for it’s antibacterial and antifungal properties.
It has become a key ingredient used in food, medicine, and even in herbal baths at Korean bathhouses to help detox and soothe the body.
Mugworts soothing benefits make it a top-choice ingredient for folks who have rosacea, eczema, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and even acne.
Mugwort is also known for lucid dreaming.
It would be strung up in the bedroom, or satchels filled with it, would be placed under a pillow.
Other known uses are smudging Mugwort in order to bring in Good Vibes, and energy.

This spice also contains a variety of antioxidants, which fight cell damage caused by reactive molecules called free radicals.
Paprika is packed with micronutrients and beneficial compounds.
Capsaicin binds to receptors on your nerve cells to reduce inflammation and pain.
Therefore, it may protect against a variety of inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, including arthritis, nerve damage, and digestive issues.
Here’s an awesome excerpt from ALLURE that says it all. You can read the full article here.
“Paprika is rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C,” says dermatologist Arisa Ortiz. “They help absorb free radicals that break down collagen in the skin, so antioxidants help your skin look supple and plump.” (Ortiz points out that paprika has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so it can help with acne, too.) Paprika is also a great source of the carotenoid beta-carotene, “which the body converts to vitamin A in the body,” says dermatologist Michele S. Green. “It can help prevent and treat some age and sun spots, as well.”
According to dermatologist Ava Shamban, paprika is a vasodilator, meaning that it can cause blood vessels to widen temporarily, giving your complexion that healthy, alive-looking flush (other vasodilators include caffeine, cinnamon, sage, and L-arginine). “I love paprika for the skin because—when combined with a fruit acid peel—it really helps flush out impurities from the tissue and increase circulation, so you are left with detoxed skin and a rosy glow,” says facialist Joanna Vargas (whose celeb clients include Julianne Moore and Dakota Johnson). “It also helps even out pigment and strengthen the elasticity while protecting against photo aging.”
The article above also mentioned Cinnamon as another vasodilator.
This spice is also considered a mild astringent or a compound that helps to shrink skin tissue.
It is a strong spice that does possess a certain harshness for those with sensitive skin.
When you use a product with natural essential oils of cinnamon or cinnamon powder you may experience a warm sensation on your skin as the cinnamon stimulates your skin.
Cinnamon has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties making it a beneficial ingredient to use in all natural soaps.
Because cinnamon brings blood and nutrients to the skins surface while also helping to dry the skin it is known to be used in soaps and skincare products to help with acne, eczema and other skin conditions.
I would say its fair to say at this point this is a SUPER POWER SOAP BAR.
