All of my soaps are based on herbs and plant oils~the main base consists of olive oil, rice bran oil, coconut oil, soy oil, castor oil, cocoa butter and/or shea butter & beeswax. I infuse herbs in the oils and/or add dried & finely powdered herbs to the soap before I pour it into molds. I only use pure essential oils (not fragrance oils) to enhance the scent. The scent of the herbs & essential oils are released in the heat of the bathing process but they do not leave a lingering scent. I never use artificial dye, micas, oxides, clays, fragrances or other chemical additives that can irritate skin or contaminate our water supply. Cleanse, soothe, protect your skin & enjoy the pleasure of herbs!
