RATIONAL CREATURES bar soap is a lovely fresh scent with notes of bergamot, apricot, and currant. The bar depicts an artistic scene of wild ocean currents, strong and willful. These are not calm waters! Mrs. Croft would be right at home.

A rational creature is a woman celebrated not just because she is beautiful to look at, but thoughtful, brave, and capable. The perfect gift for a teacher, mother, sister, or friend.


“But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days.” ~Mrs. Croft, from Jane Austen’s Persuasion, published 1817.

“Make women rational creatures, and free citizens, and they will quickly become good wives; – that is, if men do not neglect the duties of husbands and fathers.” ~Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Women  published 1792.

Let us all be rational creatures and navigate our path into the current.

This soap is inspired by Persuasion.

    I purchased for gifts and the first thing out of people’s mouths was ‘oh, this smells so good’ and ‘I love the feel of this’.

    So, mission accomplished.

    Item was exactly as described, but in person the color was more vibrant that pictures can show. It was carefully packaged and shipped ‘gift giving perfect’. I tried one of the sample slivers that were included after I got done gardening and it worked great and didn’t leave a residue. Scent was fabulous and my skin felt like it had been moisterized and cleaned all in one.

    Would definitely make future purchases.

    I bought several for all the “Rational Creatures” authors and for special giveaways. I love the fresh scent and especially the gorgeous color. The packaging also makes for amazing, personal gifting! Highly recommended.
