We are most excited to announce a new line of products for our bookstore, namely hand-crafted, all-natural soaps made here in the monastery made by our own monks.
Our soaps are made of 100% vegetable oil base, each oil chosen for the quality it brings to the soap: coconut oil, for its cleansing effects, olive oil for its conditioning properties, palm oil which makes for a hard, durable bar, and castor bean oil, which imparts a nice, rich lather.
In addition, wherever possible, we make use of both natural, botanical colorants and a wide array of essential oils.
Be sure to check in frequently to see what new varieties we are offering!
After offering prayer ropes in our monastery bookstore for some years that were hand tied by the monks themselves we are now making them available online as well.
These ropes are tied using either 100% Marina Wool or Rattail. We offer these Prayer Ropes in a variety of sizes – both 10 knot finger rings (only available in wool), 33 knot bracelets as well as the more standard 50 and 100 knot sizes.
For more information and details on other variations, sizes and options available for these ropes, please CLICK HERE.
