About the Bar
The wendigo is a cannibalistic monster from Native American lore. There are two distinct versions of this lore. Some say the wendigo is a creature who hunts and eats humans, while others believe it is a spirit that possesses people in their dreams and turns them into cannibals. In the first version, the wendigo is described as an ashen creature with antlers, claws, fangs, and haunting eyes. The more it eats, the taller it grows, reaching up to 15 feet in height. In order to kill this creature, it is said that its heart must be cut out and burned. In the second version, gluttonous people, or those suffering from starvation, are particularly susceptible to possession by this spirit, known as "going wendigo." Some Native cultures believed so strongly in this that the term "wendigo psychosis" was adopted in the early 20th century to describe the symptoms that some First Nations individuals displayed, believing they had become possessed by this spirit. Some individuals were even given this diagnosis following acts of cannibalism.
Wendigo soap pays tribute to these legends with a subtle clove scent and a deer skull on the bar face. The colors are inspired by Ojibwe turquoise jewelry. Snatch up your bar before the wendigo snatches you.
