Rarau | Root chakra soap
RARAU - TAKE ROOT, OR TO SETTLE DOWN
Find a sense of belonging by supporting your root chakra. This soap is very cleansing and helps to ground yourself and find an inner state of stillness and stability.
Balancing this chakra gives energy to the physical body, controls fear, and increases overall health. Spiritually, use for those trying to clear physical or survival trauma or wanting to find balance by channeling your own essence and presence to find your mana - authority and personal power.

This handmade cold process soap is a beautiful blend of oils which have been steeped with kawakawa, manuka, and kanuka, as well as the non-native plants of lavender, chamomile, and calendula following tikanga Māori.
Created in alignment to the maramataka with takutaku and aroha, it is imbued with the mauri (life force) of the creator, and the paratawhiti and kahikatea which both channel the rootchakra and its red aura.
Kind to the environment and tinana, each ingredient is from nature and carefully sourced.
