All of my soaps are based on herbs and plant oils~I infuse herbs in the oils and/or add dried & finely powdered herbs to the soap before I pour it into molds. I only use pure essential oils (not fragrance oils) for extra scent & skin benefits. The scent of the herbs & essential oils are released in the heat of the bathing process so you get the aromatheraputic benefits, but they do not leave a lingering scent. I never use artificial dye, fragrance or chemical additives that can irritate skin or contaminate our water supply. Cleanse, soothe, protect your skin & enjoy the pleasure of herbs!
