This fascinating blend of intense fragrances from the herbal, floral, and fruit domains comes together to form a unique aroma that is very serious and steady in nature. Like the popular design movement that espouses form to follow function, this scent has no extra frills or decoration. Far from boring, each component of the complex whole serves to sustain the far ranging spectrum of aromas, each in the exact place it needs to be to create the total effect.
Made in a block shape, this compact form is easy to hold and fits well on small shower shelves. Each 4 oz bar is enough for about three weeks of showers for one person.
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, about 6% 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 combination of thought provoking oils promotes a calm, cool, collected, alert mindset. Ylang-Ylang promotes calmness and reduces irritability. Lemongrass helps with relaxation and concentration. Tangerine is mood uplifting and improves mental clarity and alertness. Soothing lavender is a standard aromatherapy tool to promote rest, calmness, and peace. Full of vigorous energy, rosemary is also a thought clearing aid to concentration.
This blend assists in cleansing skin in several ways. Rosemary's astringent action is an excellent skin toning agent. Lemongrass creates an environment that allows skin to balance itself, making skin more beautiful by adding a resilient, toned feel. Patchouli oil is used for its calming properties. Ylang ylang helps remove excess oil build up from 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.
