We absolutely love sugar skulls, around here! Our specialty Glycerin soaps come with a tumbled crystal or gemstone inside each one. This is the Sugar Skull and is scented with ylang-ylang essential oil and white jasmine and pineapple fragrance. Hidden inside is a hematite stone. Around 4 ounces.
While the holiday of Día de los Muertos is rooted in the Catholic holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Hollow’s Day, the indigenous people of central and southern Mexico have adapted these traditions to include ancient Aztec beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones. Their name comes from the clay molded sugar that authentic sugar skulls are made from, before being decorated with feathers, colored beads, foils and icing. The skulls are very bright and cheerful, meant to celebrate the lives of the deceased.
