Our base soap recipe is blended with pure lavender and rosemary essential oils, helping to create a sense of relaxation and mental clarity. Rosemary is known for its healing and regenerative qualities and can be useful in helping aid oily or problem skin, whereas Lavender is known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. With both oils combined, it creates a wonderful bar which can help aid in relaxing and balancing the oil within the skin.
Handmade soap naturally has a high glycerine content, which is great for your skin – but is also means the soap attracts water. If left standing in water your soap will break down quickly.
To prolong the lifespan of your bar, we suggest it’s placed on a self-draining soap dish and away from the stream of water and allowed to dry (we stock a selection of suitable soap dishes).
Unused soaps need to be stored in a cool, dry place – preferably not the bathroom. A linen cupboard is great (plus, the soap will make your linens smell good.
As with any soap, keep it out of your eyes or it will sting (rinse thoroughly with plain water if this occurs) and discontinue use if irritation develops.
Please check the ingredients if you have allergies.
Be aware that some soaps have ingredients that could irritate sensitive skin (citrus etc).
Soap is slippery when wet, so take care not to step on a bar while in the shower.
