I’ve fallen hard for the Juniper Ridge line. This makes sense since I love woodsy and evergreen fragrances. And…Juniper Ridge is a West Coast brand with products scented from the lovely forests that we have here. Being that I split my free time between fragrance boutiques and the woods, it would make sense that I would love this brand.
Juniper Ridge Siskiyou Cedar is scented with Port Orford Cedar that grows in the Klamath Region. Port Orford Cedar is really unique because it smells like cedar; however, it has a spicier, ginger-like aroma that verges on fruity. The ginger isn’t “hot” like dried ginger. The ginger quality to Siskiyou Cedar is more like fresh ginger. This Juniper Ridge bar soap smells like the real deal.
I’m hooked on this Juniper Ridge Siskiyou Cedar Soap. It is the best fragrance for this time of year. It’s not your average cedar soap. It isn’t sporty or generic smelling. It smells like the trimmings of living and growing *cedar/cypress. This is the best evergreen scented soap that I have ever used. It is an amazing fragrance and I recommend this soap for those that love evergreen and woodsy scents. This is a forest in bar form. The soap is highly fragrant. It fragrances the entire top floor of my house. The scent is unisex and my husband is in love with it to.
The bar is a bit small for $6 in my opinion. My guess is that it could last 3-4 weeks if kept out of the shower. This soap will melt like crazy if left in the shower. The formula is oil based, made with a plethora of natural oils. So, it’s moisturizing. It also lathers nicely for a natural soap. First use is a bit difficult because there seems to be a hardened film on the soap, but once it is warmed up it lathers nicely. This is a wonderful natural, organic formula.
*And to further confuse you. Siskiyou Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, and Lawson’s Cypress are all the same thing. It’s an evergreen that grows in Oregon and parts of California.
Juniper Ridge bar soap retails for $6 and is available at Juniper Ridge and Beautyhabit. On the West Coast you can find these at local grocers and places like Whole Foods. And 10% of the profits go to defending the Western Wilderness, find out what that exactly means here.
