The Kraken is a unique soap inspired by the legendary Scandinavian sea monster. The aroma of this bergamot natural soap evokes the fresh scent of a ship at sea: the salt in the air, wooden timbers that creak with the motion of the waves, and the hold full of exotic fruits and fragrant black tea.

The Lore

"Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee..."
—Alfred Tennyson

The Lather

This is a natural, food-based soap handmade with a combination of high-quality ingredients. These include olive oil, coconut oil, castor seed oil, activated charcoal, phthalate-free fragrance oil, and essential oil. Swirls of blue, black, and green, created using ethically sourced micas, simulate crashing waves and boundless seas. Meanwhile, a dusting of blue eco-glitter on each bar shimmers like sunlight on fresh sea foam.

  • Olive oil's gentle cleansing properties help to remove dirt and impurities, and above all results in clean, glowing skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
  • Coconut oil is added to provide a rich lather and moisturizing properties that leave the skin feeling soft and supple.
  • Bergamot is a citrus fruit with a slightly spicy and sweet aroma, used in aromatheraphy for its uplifting and calming properties. 
  • Activated charcoal, visible in the soap's rich black swirls, absorbs impurities and excess oil from the skin.
  • Teakwood is a symbol of longevity, endurance, and the ability to weather all conditions, and its scent will undoubtedly prepare you for whatever journey lies ahead, by sea or land.

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.

  • Made in the USA

The kraken is my favorite scent out of the shops. I originally ordered another soap but however, they sold out of what I originally ordered and the customer service was super great and I ended up getting this one instead and a free sample soap. Will definitely be ordering from this shop again. 10 out of 10.

Release the kraken!

My husband LOVES this soap. I finally got him off Irish spring and using a better product for his skin. He's notice a huge difference. He even used this to wash his beard it helps relieve the itchiness. In addition he uses the Odin Beard oil.

Cleared My Skin

The Birds of Valhalla soap is some of the best I’ve used in my life. It’s clearing my Keratosis Pilaris while also smelling and looking exciting. The soap lathers well and doesn’t dissolve significantly while not in use. Using BOV soap and lotion the skin on my arms is looking the best it has looked in my adult life.

Hi Tierney! I'm glad you both like it! We actually offer this scent in a solid cologne that your husband may want to try!

No title.

I loved thee smell and feel of the soap as soon as I took it out of its packaging. The scent was nicely balanced and strong. The suds and feel of the soap is smooth and positively umptious. I will be buying more of this bar in the future.
