The Lore

Old Norse sagas, history, and mythology tell of shield maidens, women trained in the art of combat and known for courage and skill in battle. Often depicted wearing armor and carrying shields, they were respected as fierce warriors. The most famous shield maiden is likely Lagertha, who evidently fought alongside the Viking hero, Ragnar Lothbrok.

The Shield Maiden is a natural, food-based soap which honors those brave Norse and Viking warrior women. Just as the shield maidens protected themselves and others, this bold and beautiful soap protects and nourishes the skin.

The Lather

The Shield Maiden Lingonberry and Spice Signature Soap is handmade with a unique blend of natural oils and ingredients, carefully selected for their moisturizing and cleansing properties. Not only will it make you feel great, but it also looks fantastic, with vibrant streaks of blood red and rich black evoking the spirit of the battlefield. We created these striking colors using ethical mica and activated charcoal.

Designed to rejuvenate and embolden your warrior spirit, this lingonberry and spice signature soap will transport you to a wintry Scandinavian forest.

  • Tart and tangy lingonberries symbolize protection, vitality, endurance, and survival. Additionally, in Scandinavian folklore they are said to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck.
  • Characterized by a fresh, resinous, piney fragrance, balsam is a symbol of hope and healing. Additionally, in ancient times balsam oil was an ingredient in sacred annointing oils.
  • Cinnamon and clove exude a rich, warm, spicy scent which is both invigorating and comforting. They are each said to have a slew of magical properties, including purification, protection, and increased spiritual awareness.

Made in small batches. Every batch varies in appearance, but each bar is approximately 5.5 oz. Our soaps last the average person 4-8 weeks, depending on use and storage.

Just as amazing as Kraken!!

I could smell the soaps through the packaging!! My order got here super quick, and even though I entered the wrong address on accident, thanks to auto fill, they saw my email and shipped to my correct address in such a short time! The soaps feel and smell so good I can’t wait to buy more! These were for my boyfriend but now I need some😭💚 I also got a little sample chunk of one and now I have been requested to buy him that one too! I think we have found our new favorite soap shop!!!

I am ready for battle!!

This is one of our favorite soaps from BoV. Our first purchase was two years ago and we finally ran out of all the others we had purchased, so we had to get more of the Shield Maiden. I don't know how to describe the scent but you can smell the spice in it. It works great for both my husband and myself. He loves to use it in his beard while I love it especially on my hands because I have a small form of eczema that is very itchy and this soap keeps it at bay. I love how it softens my skin and how much it lathers us as well.
