Lavender Oatmeal Natural Soap
Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries for washing, scenting homes, and for its healing properties. It is no surprise that it finds its way into so many bath and body products. The name is derived from the Latin lavare "to wash", referring to the use of infusions of the plants. Lavender is also used extensively in aromatherapy as its lovely earthy floral scent is said to have relaxing and soothing properties. Lavender is also known to have healing properties, including antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and is excellent for fungal infections. Oatmeal is well known for its soothing, skin loving qualities; in soap it makes a fine exfoliant as well. The addition of shea butter, which is known for its emollient and moisturizing qualities, creates a bar of soap your skin will love.
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.
