Bath & Spa Gift Box Spoiler June 2018
June’s Box Includes a “Tear of Calypso” Pendant
The theme of June’s Gift box from Front Range Soaps Bath & Spa Gift Box was inspired by the oceans & beaches. Featuring the fragrances of “Calypso’s Sun” “Caribbean Coconuts” and “Tangerine & Grapefruit Cocktail”.
This Month we have partnered with TMcCabe to include a handcrafted pendant. This beautiful pendant was created with the story of Calypso as inspiration by Tracy McCabe. Tracy, a cancer survivor, discovered her love for creativity and used this new found passion to help her deal with her recovery. I am very proud of her as a friend and fellow artist. Tracy has provided this pendant “Tear of Calypso” as an addition to our Beach Time Bath & Spa Gift Box.
In Greek mythology, Calypso was a nymph who captured the Greek Hero Odysseus for
many years, before he finally managed to escape. She lived on the mythical island of Ogygia.
Osysseus landed on Ogygia, Calypso fell in love with him and decided to keep him as her
immortal husband. With her captivating singing, she managed to detain the Greek hero for
several years. However, the time came when Odysseus’ longing for his wife, grew so strong
that he could bear it no more. Wanting to tell Calypso, Odysseaus instead told goddess Athena
of his misery. Athena, being the protector of Odysseus, asked from Zues to demand the release
of the hero. So it happened. Giving Odysseus wine, bread and a raft, she bade him farewell.
It is believed by some that when a one comes to the the isalnd of Ogyia, finds a tear shed
by Calypso and gives it a kiss, Calypso will grant them a wish.
