A dream inducing soap bar that comes with ambient music and sounds. (6 tracks, about 25 minutes, which should be just about right to nod off).

Created especially for bloop by co-owner Karl's sound design studio Obelisk. A collaboration with Bristol based soap maker Soap and Poetry with illustration by Famicon Express.

The handmade lavender, frankincense and bergamot soap comes with a music download code inside. So you can take a relaxing bath or shower and then settle down to some soothing sounds that are designed to help you relax using sleep science.

The essential oils in the soap all have calming properties:

Frankincense: Calming, soothing, uplifting. Anti-inflammatory, antiseptic. Calms the emotions, breaks links with the past, helpful for people who dwell too much on past events, possibly leading to physical illness. Use for anxiety, tension, fear, obsession. Soothes and uplifts the mind.
Bergamot: Valuable for balancing nervous system - used to relieve tension, anxiety, depression, mood swings, refreshes and uplifts. Anti -viral, anti-bacterial.
Lavender: Anti-depressant, anti-bacterial, calming and balancing, sedative, anti-inflamatory.
Ylang Ylang: Relaxing, aphrodisiac, sedative, anti-depressant, anti-septic.

The music has been created using a combination of field recordings captured around Totterdown in Bristol and layered with perculiar and esoteric synthesiser machines and tape cassette loops. Using degradation techniques to gradular wear down and re-sample the recordings. A process has then been used to add brain entrainment frequencies which help the brain transition to the Alpha and Theta states of consiousness which is when we fall asleep and dream deeply.
