Frankincense and Myrrh
Frankincense and Myrrh Handcrafted Soap with Colloidal Oats and Rhassoul Clay
Rich, warm, and delicately sweet with sandalwood and cinnamon undertones. An exquisite balance of ancient aromatic resins. Frankincense and myrrh were extremely expensive resins which were used as both medicine, and as Holy anointing oils. Myrrh is mentioned more in the Bible than any other aromatic essential oil.
Rhassoul Clay is an exceptional clay with multipurpose assets. It is mined in the fertile Atlas Mountains of Morocco and has been used for over 12 centuries by population in North Africa, Southern Europe and Middle East. Rhassoul Clay's most impressive properties that benefit the skin is its capacity to absorb. Studies have shown that it is reputed to reduce the dryness and flakiness of the skin while improving the texture of the skin.
Colloidal Oats moisturizes dry and problem skin, especially dry skin in children. This Colloidal Oatmeal is GMO-free and consists of key components such as beta glucan and avenanthramides, which acts as a natural, deep penetrating moisturizer that reduce the itching caused by dry skin.
The allantoin content in comfrey powder with its ability to repair damaged cells and produce new ones may help speed the healing of skin burns, insect bites and rashes. It can help healing various skin conditions like psoriasis, a condition where the skin becomes itchy and red and has scaly patches, and eczema, where patches of skin become rough and inflamed, causing painful blisters.
Look and feel: All soaps are made by hand in small batches with natural ingredients, and like any product made by hand, has color differences and small imperfections. Unlike commercially produced products, color stabilizers are not used in my soaps, resulting in bars that will darken as they age. This is normal for real soap, and won't affect its performance.
Extra time isn't spent finishing the edges, shaving off imperfections, etc. This allows me more time to make more soap, as well as a lower price point to my customer. Due to their naturally high moisture content, handcrafted soaps may be softer than the average commercial bar. To prolong the life of your soap I recommend storing it on an open tray with good air circulation and drainage
Inside: I only use what’s needed to produce a soap or skin care item. Ingredients without a distinct purpose and/or benefit are left out. Most items are scented with only essential oils. Because not all scents can be recreated with essential oils only, some products will contain a fragrance oil. All my fragrance oils are phthalate-free. Items will be identified with what scent or essential oil was added in the ingredient listing. For the oils and butters, organic and fair trade are chosen whenever those options are available.
Packaging: Sourced from recyclable materials whenever possible, the packaging is minimal and functional, to keep the soaps dry during shipping, as well as keep the scents from blending.
Ingredients: Lard, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, aloe vera juice, sodium hydroxide, Rhassoul Clay, Colloidal Oats, Comfrey Root Powder and fragrant oil
