Complete Works of Jane Austen, Abridged

(2 customer reviews)


The Complete Works of Jane Austen, Abridged contains scraps of all our other Jane Austen soaps made throughout the past year! We make a new batch of soap as a binder and stir the scraps into it, along with extra fragrance.

The current scent profile is sweet cucumber & citrus, with many other lighter notes from past soaps due to the scraps. It’s a bit of everything!

This soap is cut by hand and may have a rougher surface. The look and scent profile will not be the same from year to year as the scraps saved will vary.

“The abilities of the nine-hundredth abridger of the History of England, or of the man who collects and publishes in a volume some dozen lines of Milton, Pope, and Prior, with a paper from the Spectator, and a chapter from Sterne, are eulogized by a thousand pens” ~ Northanger Abbey.

Handmade in small batches with gentle, moisturizing ingredients. It is made from a saponified blend of lard, olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, and castor oil, with fragrance oil, colorant, and rosemary oleoresin. Net weight 4 oz (113 g).

That is the official ingredient list. HOWEVER since this is a scrap soap, it contains scraps from many previous projects. There is much more than can be listed on the label, with perhaps a few more oils, essential oils, fragrances, herbs, salts, and more. Nothing that would be harmful to your skin, but do keep in mind that the ingredients listed are approximate for this bar.

All our soaps are elegantly wrapped in handmade lokta paper and boxed with care in historical Jane Austen style with a stamped wax seal, tissue paper, and muslin. (Learn more here.) They are perfect for gift giving and may also be shipped directly to the recipient with an optional hand-written gift message. Each soap is individually labeled and bundled with its origin story, similar to what you see here. See product photos for packaging examples.

    This was a neat idea…taking bits and pieces and making a unique soap….love the texture of the mix. A cool mix of scents…This should always be carried in the shop.
