CRUMBLING CRYPTAll natural blend of Cedar, Patchouli, Oakmoss, Spruce, Cypress and More
Not to be used by women who are pregnant or nursing
Offered as part of the Autumn 2011 Collection in Bath Salts
Description: An unkempt solitary stone crypt sits shaded in a dense forest of ancient cedar trees. Crumbling stone covered in rich moss lays on wet, dank soil that is cold to the touch. A memorial long forgotten, the only frequent visitors are the shadows of the sheltering trees.
Crumbling Crypt is an all natural blend of essential oils and absolutes including Virginia Cedarwood, Patchouli, Oakmoss Absolute, Spruce, Cypress, Amyris, Rosewood, Patchouli, Violet Leaf Absolute, Rosemary, Lavender, Vetiver, Marjoram and Himalayan Cedar. It smells very very dark, woodsy, earthy, dank, green and herbal. This is a very deep, wet woods scent rather than a light fresh woods scent. It is moody and very earthy.
***Due to the oils used in this blend, these salts have a slightly spongy texture.***
Topped with dried moss.

The main note was the moss for me, but I also got woody notes, the spruce, cedar and an overall herbal note. It was mossy, very dark, dank and kind of "wet". I really LOVED this scent and have been wanting to try it ever since it appeared in Angela's scent list as "Crypt of the Wizard". A fantastic bath, but be forewarned... if you're not a lover of darker scents, this one may not be for you. Crumbling Crypt will make a great bath on a cool Autumn night!

I've ordered a bunch of the salts now, and this one is my husband's favorite. It's a very green scent to me, like crisp, sweet pine and green moss. Cool and forest-y.
And the salts themselves are fantastic, of course. I used to buy a lot of LUSH bath bombs and melts, but these salts have replaced those for me entirely. I find these to be perfectly moisturizing and so strongly scented <3 just perfect.

I really liked the Crumbling Crypt salts when I had some from last Fall, and look forward to replenishing my stock this Fall. It is a very prominent scent, but if you like the smell of moss and forest floors I think you would like it. I personally find it very relaxing and have taken Crumbling Crypt salts with me sometimes on business trips because of that.

I just got this in bath salts and I wish it came in everythingggg. It is an insane scent to me...smells like new shoes, moss, looming trees, decay. I adore the weirdo scents like that. I will purchase another jar of salts if more are made this go around and keep this jar just to open and sniff AT REGULAR INTERVALS.
