Gardener’s Green Apple Handcrafted Soap with Diatomaceous Earth and Kalonji Seeds
Green apple soap is one of my new favorites! Fresh, green crisp aroma that you will keep going back to use. Top notes of green apple, crisp citrus, and nuances of Berries. Peach mid notes reaching into a light musk at the base of the fragrance. This is not a sweet apple, definitely the aroma of a fresh green apple!
Kalonji seeds were lightly sprinkled throughout the soap for exfoliation. Perfect soap after a day of gardening 👨🌾 I substituted all the water for Aloe Vera juice❤️
Rhassoul Clay combined with Diatomaceous Earth makes for a delicately mild and natural exfoliating scrub that is suitable even for those with sensitive skin. Exfoliation helps to unclog pores and removes dead skin and impurities from the surface of the skin. Without exfoliation, your skin can look dull. With exfoliation, it will feel silky smooth and also appear more youthful and vibrant.
Diatomaceous earth is a natural product made up of fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. Composed of the cell walls/shells of single cell diatoms, it easily crumbles to a fine powder.
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, fragrant oil, diatomaceous earth, rhassoul clay and kalonji seeds
