Four Robbers Natural Soap
Four thieves vinegar (or oil) is a combination of infused vinegars or oils that was believed to protect users from the plague. The legend dates back to medieval times when the plague was rampant. As the legend goes there were four thieves that would steal from the corpses of those that died from the plague (a deadly infectious disease caused by bacteria). These thieves were not originally chased, because everyone just thought they would die from the plague. After some time they were apprehended and traded their secret for their freedom. Our Four Robbers scent is based on a modern version of this vinegar, and includes a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils.
This soap is an all-natural, cold process soap made with plant based oils and 100% pure essential oils. In general, aromatic plants can be boiled to release their essential oils, which are then captured and concentrated to make essential oils. Olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, and castor oil, along with glycerin that is a byproduct of the saponification process (chemical reaction that makes soap) all attribute to the moisturizing properties of this soap. It is 100% biodegradable, with nothing artificial, nothing synthetic, no detergents, and no GMO's; just wholesome ingredients. Treat yourself to this affordable luxury; your skin and the Earth will thank you!
Each bar is handmade and will vary slightly in weight from bar to bar. These bars weigh approximately 4.5 ounces each after curing for at least 6 full weeks. Because of the handmade nature, please allow for slight variations in color and/or size.
