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.

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.

An Elite and Luxurious Scent and Soap

I firmly believe that every soap maker should have an elite and luxury scented soap. Plus the performance is terrific. Crann's is by far one of those soaps. A clean, luxurious scent that will have you smelling and feeling like a million bucks with every pass of your razor. Well done and executed. This is a top shelf soap for me.

Phenomenal soap and scent!

M&McN's entry into the artisan soap making had been extraordinary! Crann Bethadh's performance is elite for slickness and post shave. The scent is very fresh and light that can be used daily in any situation. Definitely try it outn

Amazing Shave Soap!!!

Wow! Simply amazing! Great lather, a very protective slickness, and a loving post-shave caress of nourishment that makes my face feel wonderful. This is another excellent shave soap from Murphy & McNeil. I especially like the fragrance, and that it’s subtle enough to wear to work every day. Combine their excellent shaving products with fast shipping and very careful packaging and you can see that this is a talented artisan who pays careful attention to details, and gets it right. Thanks Murphy & McNeil for another high quality product! I highly recommend this product!
