The Lavender soap smells very strongly of natural lavender plants where the fresh leaves and dirt are vaguely detectable in the smell. Lavender is great for creating a sense of calm and serenity to help de-stress and ground the mind. This soap is suitable for all skin types.

What is Cold Process Soap
Soap is made through a chemical reaction called saponification. This process involves the binding of oil or fat and lye that breaks down the oils so they may be absorbed into the body.
Cold process soap involves mixing sodium hydroxide (lye) with water and oils to initiate saponification. The mixture is then poured into a mould where it sits for 48 hours before being cut into soap bars. It is then left to sit for 4-6 weeks to cure, allowing the saponification process to complete and the oils to fully breakdown.
All our soaps are made through a cold process that ensures all the goodness in the natural ingredients and essential oils remains in the soap for full benefit to the skin.

Care and Use instructions
To keep the soap in the best condition after opening the soap store it in a dry place on a draining soap dish. Don't let the soap sit in a dish or container that is bowl-shaped, or that allows water to pool in the bottom. Avoid using indentations built-in some showers as "soap dishes" as they rarely drain properly. To increase the longevity of the soap, avoid rubbing the bar directly on the body. Instead, use hands, washcloth or other bathing instruments to apply.
