Crann Bethadh Shaving Soap



In Celtic Lore, the Crann Bethadh symbolizes all of nature coming together in harmony.  Believing that trees were the ancestors of human beings, when new settlements were formed, a "Tree of Life" was left untouched (or planted) in the middle of the plantation.  This tree became a town center, for which assemblies, ceremonies, and other important meetings were held.  Much meaning was derived from the constant cycle of death, and rebirth of the sacred tree through the year's seasons.  To enemies, the cutting down of your rival's Crann Bethadh would render them powerless.

This Shaving Soap by Murphy and McNeil is composed of a mix of high quality oils and ingredients that create a dense, creamy lather for an excellent shave.

Best in my den

I have around 30 soaps in my den at any given time with over 20 different makers. And this soap base has beaten out all my other brands like PAA-CK6 and Nobel Otter. I’ve been keeping track of my shaves with the ShaveBuddy app and M&M is currently sitting #1. I’m a matcher, so I have to a soap, splash, balm and cologne of a certain scent regardless if their the same brand. I like the fact that I can get everything from one company.

Crann Bethadh

I continue to be impressed by M&M soaps. Their performance is top notch, both in shave and post shave. The Crann Bethadh is one of my favorites. Not only does it exhibit the aforementioned performance but the scent is wonderful. If you like Green Irish Tweed, you’ll love this soap.

A++++ Performance!

If you like the smell of Green Irish Tweed then you’ll love the scent of this soap. The soap is a soft soap but is easy to build a lather. Both primary and residual slickness are fantastic. M&M soaps are one of the few soaps that give no problem on my trouble area on my neck mostly the left side. Buy the samples if you’re not sure but you’ll be back to buy the full tub.
