We had a great day out at our local market on Sunday.
I had new soaps out and ready to go.
Here is a few of the new ones for 2016
Green tea and Lavender ..
Green tea has anti-bacterial benefits as well as being high in Vitim C, We drink green tea so why not add it to our soap for health benefits. Lavender essential oil helps to alleviate stress and headaches.
With this combination this soap will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.

Good question..Most commercially made soap is made using Palm oil and tallow predominantly these help to make a hard soap.
I use Coconut oil as my base which also gives a hard soap, coconut oil is softer on your skin, not to mention the benefits...which would be another whole blog post. My soap does not leave that fatty feel as commercial soap does. I also use Olive oil, rice bran, sweet almond, Castor and macadamia oils as well as shea butter.
My soaps are left 6 weeks minimum to cure as this also helps them to last longer.
We sell here at our on farm shop and at local markets...
When you buy my handmade soap you are buying local and allowing me to continue to do a craft that I love..
Sandalwood has long been known for its effects on the mind and soul. Its not surprising it is used in aromatherapy to offer relief from stress, anxiety and depression.
Benefits in soap is.....Makes the skin supple, soothes the skin, Fights body odor and has anti-bacterial properties.
Whats not to like about this soap..
I am continuing to experiment with oils, powders and scents to bring you the finest soaps...If you have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment....
Have a great week...
