Basil · Peppermint · Rosemary · Sage · Thyme


This botanic soap is an all-natural castile-style soap enriched with skin-nourishing nutrients like aloe vera, coconut oil, and shea butter to aid in the saponification process and gently cleanse for supple, smooth hands. Throughout the day, call back your attention with a rinse. Made with a botanical blend of sweet basil, peppermint, rosemary, sage, and thyme, this summer-ready soap is reminiscent of a cold ocean plunge in sticky summer air.



Inspired by the Greek myth of the basilisk, a deadly serpent, our Basilisk Breath scent features sweet basil, a botanical once considered to be a protective charm against the basilisk’s fatal stare and breath. In following the long occult tradition of naming antidotes for their poison, Basilisk Breath enlivens basil’s mythological roots while delivering a bright, refreshing clean.

What does “Castile” mean?

In earlier centuries, an all-vegetable-based soap was made in the Castile region of Spain from local olive oil. By the turn of this century, “Castile” had come to mean any vegetable oil-based soap, as distinct from animal (tallow) fat-based soap. Unfortunately, many synthetic detergent blends are deceptively labeled as “liquid soap” despite the fact that they contain absolutely no real soap whatsoever.


Do your soaps contain any foaming agents or detergents like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate?

Absolutely not. What you’re using is a genuinely ecological and simple soap – not a complex blend of detergents with a higher environmental impact due to the waste stream created during manufacturing and the detergents’ slower biodegradability.



Key Ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil: Gently nourish the skin for silky smooth hands.
  • Basil, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme Essential Oils: Rejuvenate the senses and minimize the drying effects of alcohol.

Sophisticated and Herbaceous

This soap is perfect for my kitchen counter. I love the scent; it's reinvigorating, herbaceous, and almost spicy. I love the castile-soap base; this soap is totally non-drying and great for my eczema, and gentle for sensitive skin in general.

Interesting Scent

I like the Basilsk scent for it's kind of musky quietness in the handsoap.

Small shop loves scent

This hand sanitizer is the perfect compliment to our jewelry store. We ask people to use the product before trying items on and everyone is pleasantly surprised by the scent and the feel. It isn't sticky at all and dries quickly. This product provides a nice moment for enjoying scent and cleanliness, and elevates our shopping experience. Thank you!

The same high quality as every AMASS product

I am a huge fan of the Gin and Vodka. Earlier last year I started using the hand sanitizer also. I thought I would try the hand soap and it does not disappoint. Lots of foam, and they smell amazing. I love the labeling and honestly of the ingredients. I’ll be ordering this regularly.

Disappointed

Somehow, the basil-mint notes translate as a "soapy" smell.

I was hoping it would be more "herb-y."

Very Nice

These are great. I gave them as small gifts and have been asked for more as everyone who has it at work has people trying it and asking them how to get it.

I love these.

Basilisk Breath scent

This may be the most unique scent I’ve had. I notice the pepper in it, that is very different and intriguing. I like all the Amass scents so far, hard to choose a favorite. I think they are well worth trying.
