All of our soaps are based on herbs and plant oils~the main base consists of olive oil, coconut oil, soy oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, shea butter & beeswax. We do offer a soap with only olive & castor oil for those allergic to coconut & soy, called "La Saponetta"!
We infuse herbs in olive oil and/or add finely powdered herbs to the soap further infusing their benefits before I pour it into molds. This time consuming process is what ensures the herbal qualities transfer to the soap! Since we raise our own herbs I am able to use a large quantity of herbs in each recipe~ we go through pounds of herbs~ another way to get the most benefit from the herbs as possible!
Most soaps are very lightly scented, relying on the herbs, herbal infusions, and soap base for a soft, clean, scent. This makes them ideal for those with skin and allergy sensitivity.
For other soaps, I only use pure essential oils (not fragrance oils) to enhance scent & skin care benefits. The scent of the herbs & essential oils are released in the heat of the bathing process but they do not leave a lingering scent. I never use artificial dye, micas, oxides, clays, fragrances or other chemical additives that can irritate skin or contaminate our water supply. Cleanse, soothe, protect your skin & enjoy the pleasure of herbs!
