El Arroyo Hand & Body Bar Soap

"A better quality bar soap is a good investment, and a great bar soap is an everyday luxury."

Creamy cleansing bar for hands and body.


    El Arroyo Hand & Body Bar is named after “the creek” that ran behind my grandparent’s Tucson, Arizona ranch, but only after much-needed rain. A lightning bolt glows throughout the bar, recreating my vision of summertime electrical storms in the mountains. 

    Unsatisfied with the synthetic, unsustainable, and skin-drying ingredients, artificial fragrances, and “melt and pour” formulas most soaps are made of, each Hand & Body Bar is cold process made from scratch with my exclusive blend of all organic olive, coconut, castor seed oils, plus a generous helping of minimally processed, Fair-Trade, organic shea butter to create deep cleansing foam and an almost lotion-like lather. Food-grade activated charcoal and kaolin clay absorb impurities.

    Infused with the El Arroyo organic and wildcrafted essential oils. The fresh, woodsy, and uplifting scent of greasewood leaves, or chaparral, is the authentic fragrance of the Sonoran Desert that’s most present after a storm, and one of my most restorative memories from growing up. 

    How to use: At the sink, or in the shower, work up a rich and moisturizing lather to get maximum cleansing and moisturizing benefits. To extend the life of your bar, use a soap dish or wire basket to allow it to dry out after use.

    Why Oracle Jayne Station

    Named after the street in Tucson, Arizona where my father grew up, the ranch on Oracle Jaynes Station Road is where I got to spend part of my summer vacations. Fragrances have always been marketed based on memories, emotions, and experiences. Rarely do they actually have anything to do with either. Usually, what’s inside the bottle, contains very little from the natural world. Oracle Jayne Station challenges all that.

    Everything I make is about genuine moments in my life, and an authentic heritage. My first drafts of Oracle Jayne Station fragrances were created for friends in 2014. The signature scent, El Arroyo, is inspired by the smell of the desert after it rains, and the sight of the creek running behind my grandparents’ ranch.
