                Essential Oils in Soap

                Almost all essential oils are refreshing with skin friendly repair in soap, and help in the control of body odor.  While they are the most costly ingredients in any soap preparation, their properties enhance the benefits already inherent in the soaps.

                Some of the most useful essential oils for soap formulas:

                Lavender. Well known to calm and soothe the spirit. Relieves stress, anxiety, and tension. Soothing for distressed  skin.

                Tea Tree. Tea tree is very herbal yet is considered uplifting. It is well-known help for troubled skin.

                Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus can be grounding and up-lifting. It sometimes helps reduce excess oiliness if used as a facial soap. Inhalation helps clear sinuses. 

                Lemongrass. Lemongrass is one of nature's stress relievers. It is commonly used for oily and distressed skin. It is refreshing to use after a workout.  Many golfers and sports folks use it for its insect repellent properties.

                Rosemary. Nature's fine-tuning knob. When you need a mood adjustment, are feeling a bit down, or need to be more alert, rosemary brings mental balance. Rosemary is excellent for itchiness and many skin troubles. NOTE: Rosemary essential oil should NOT be used by pregnant women or anyone who suffers from epilepsy.

                Patchouli. The Age of Aquarius essential oil. Patchouli is an essential oil aroma that one seems to either love or hate, but in soap, it is mild to the spirit. In soap it is calming, relaxing, and is said to enhance happiness. It is excellent for very dry skin. It is gentle enough to be useful on troubled skin and often helpful for soothing foot issues.

                Peppermint. Peppermint is a wonderful morning wake up call as it is refreshing and stimulating. It helps relieve invigorate your body and brings relief when inhaled.  

                Spearmint. Spearmint is light, calming, and relaxing, used often to uplift the spirit from mental fatigue. It has a much lighter aroma than many oils. Inhalation of its vapors soothes. 

                 

                • Any of the soaps may be used for skin, face, or hair. Choose a bar for individual needs. All are gentle and moisturizing.
                • Some soaps have sea salt or herbal additions. Rubbed directly on skin provides a little extra exfoliation.
                • If using as a face soap, develop the lather in your hands before applying to face.
                • Soap will last longer if allowed to dry out between use. Avoid storing your soap where shower water hits it continuously.
                • Remember that these are hand-made and occasionally soaps will still be slightly soft. Allow soap to cure in the air to firm it up.
                • Soap does not get "old." Soap will lose water (but not its moisturizing properties) and may tend to shrink a little in size. The fragrance may slightly diminish with time. The upside is that older bars last longer.
                • Be frugal: Collect all your small pieces of soap in a soap sack to coalesce into a usable size. This will squeeze every last bubble out of the soap. Literally.

                 

                • All soaps are all natural.
                • Natural and organic botanical oils, butters, herbs, and extracts. Colors are natural earth clays.
                • Fragrances are all natural essential oils and fragrance oils.
