Jewelweed (All-Natural, Unscented)
Our Jewelweed soap is made with a strong jewelweed tea that we brew ourselves. It also has ground oatmeal to help scrub off any dirt and oils from your skin. The juice from the stem and leaves of the plant is used by herbalists as a treatment for poison ivy. We aren't sure how effective this would be as a treatment for poison ivy; so play it safe and use this after a hike through the woods or an afternoon weeding in the yard to clean yourself up before the rash sets in.
This soap is an all-natural, cold process soap made with plant based 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.
Ingredients: Olive oil, Coconut oil, sustainable Palm oil, Jewelweed tea, Sodium Hydroxide*, Shea Butter, Castor oil, and ground Oats.
* Sodium hydroxide is an ingredient used to make the soap, but during the Saponification Process the oils and sodium hydroxide (lye) are turned into soap and glycerin. There is no sodium hydroxide in the finished product.
