What is the meaning of Selah? Selah is as a Hebrew word found at the end of some verses in the book of Psalms. It has been interpreted as an instruction calling for a break in the singing of a psalm. It may also mean "forever" or "rest." Selah may indicate a break in the song with a purpose similar to that of “amen” (Hebrew: "so be it").

Are your products all organic? We use organic ingredients when available, but all of our products are made with fresh and natural ingredients.
What method do you use to make your soap? All of our soaps are made from the Cold Process Method, which is the art of mixing fresh oils, butters, water and sodium hydroxide. This process is called saponification. The beauty of the saponification process is that the lye (sodium hydroxide) no longer exists in the final product therefore making soap! Our soaps are scented with essential oils, natural fragrances and additives. The soap is then poured into the mold and left to harden for 24-48 hours.
How long does Selah soaps curing process? After the soap is removed from the mold, each loaf is cut into 1-inch, 5-ounce bars. Our soap cures for 4 to 6 weeks in a ventilated, cool and dry space. During this time, the water used in the recipe evaporates. Cured soap has a firmer texture and lasts longer in the shower. The longer the soap cures the gentler it is for your skin.
