We have blended these two wonderful plants and swirled them together for cleansing and relaxing effect. We’ve used both the plants and their essential oils in this soap so it has an exfoliating effect and texture to it.
Lavender has a soothing, calming effect. We use the blossoms and French Lavender essential oil which is well known for its relaxing, calming effects and can reduce symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression. There is a wide range of hair and skin conditions that lavender is known to improve. It reduces inflammation and helps heals wounds. Its also antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial so it can heal and prevent acne, improve dry skin or eczema, relieve itching, reduce scarring, wrinkles and skin discoloration. It’s even known to prevent hair loss and may lighten the skin. We made an alkanet root infusion months in advance to contribute the lavender swirl color and it came out deep purple.
The sage leaves are grown on Madre Grande Monastery, powdered and then added to spirulina for color and it’s healing properties. Sage has a long history of use for cleansing and purification in spiritual rites. The essential oil is antiseptic antibacterial and also a powerful astringent that reduces secretions from the body making a great natural deodorant. Sage is also used for hormonal balancing, normalizing skin and on oily hair.
All of our soaps are free of sulfates, gentle on the environment and on you. Herbs used are wild crafted or organic. Let your soap dry out on a good soap dish between uses and it will last a long time. Our soaps are hand stirred and cured the old fashion way... time.
