Benefit of Natural Soap
Natural soap gently cleanses without stripping or stressing skin. The use of vegetable oils and the cold process method creates a product that contains moisturizing glycerin and rich emollients. It is vastly more pleasant experience than cleansing with a standard, mass produced bar that is too harsh for human skin. Regular soap bars are usually made from a petroleum base and are stripped of the moisturizing natural glycerin that results from the soapmaking process. Our recipe is a blend of all vegetable oils - palm oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. In the finished soap, 6% - 8%of the oils used to make the soap are still intact to nourish your skin. Combined with the glycerin that is also in the soap as a result of the natural saponification process, your skin will be soft and supple as well as clean!
This fragrance will transport you to the calm comfort of the most pleasant walk in the woods you have ever experienced. The rich spice of frankincense, the literal smell of church and religious gatherings all over the world, is augmented by the mild pine of spruce. This combination is ethereal and intense. Tangerine joins the combination as a lighter scent and latches on to the spicy notes of the Frankincense to make a rich, almost confectionary combination. The result is an intense, soulful, and irresitibly playful perfume.
Frankincense is a skin loving oil that is extracted from sap, which is the life blood of a tree. The nature of frankincense is quite sticky, and even as a liquid essential oil, it is not particularly water soluble and difficult to use on its own. Where it grows, frankincense is used as a preservative, reducing the effect of time on all sorts of organic materials. It has been a precious material used in cosmetic, household, and religious contexts for thousands of years all over the Mediterranean world.
Spruce is traditionally used by the native people who live where it grows in the northern regions as part of the cleansing required to promote healing. It has strong antiseptic qualities, but spruce in particular is mild enough to use on skin. It contributs the aura of pine forest fragrance to your bath.
Tangerine oil, rich in vitamins like Vitamins A and C and beta-carotene, is a natural alternative to chemical versions of these nutrients for your skin. It promotes balance and tones the skin.
About Handmade Soap
Soapmaking is a craft that requires a little chemistry, a little artistry, and a little patience. Each bar gets special attention as part of our small batch handcrafted manufacturing process. From preparing the ingredients, to mixing, coloring, and pouring the batch, and then waiting for the soap to cure, care is needed to ensure that the whole process is successful.
Body cleansing: Can be used in the bath or shower with a washcloth, scrub brush, scrunchie, exfoliating pad, or any implement used to perform the mechanics of getting clean. Suitable for facial use. Lather up the implement and apply to skin, spreading bubbles over the surface of skin. Rinse.
Hand cleansing: rub soap between hands until lathered. Rub hands together to spread suds for 30 seconds. Rinse.
ALWAYS STORE HANDMADE SOAP SO THAT IT DRIES COMPLETELY BETWEEN USES. Handmade soap is full of gentle ingredients that melt away when left in a puddle of water.
