PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Getting your hands dirty is just part of the fun of gardening, but we want to make it easy to clean up afterwards. Try our mixture of stone ground grits, Geranium essential oil, Patchouli essential oil and Lemongrass essential oil that cleans even the toughest dirt. One of our original “five” soaps, this is still one of our best sellers. We color this soap with “chromium” to create a beautiful green soap.

INGREDIENTS

Saponified organic oils of (extra virgin olive, extra virgin coconut, extra virgin sustainable palm), stone ground grits, essential oils of: (geranium, patchouli and lemongrass), and rosemary oil extract

This is our line of “Scändic Soaps”. They were formulated using mostly sourced Scandinavian ingredients. They were all given product names of Nordic origins. They contain pure therapeutic grade essential oils (some are organic) along with a nature-identical oil, and natural ingredients like: organic oatmeal, sea kelp, Icelandic moss etc. We use extra virgin organic olive oil (EVOOO) as the base oil, along with the extra virgin organic oils of coconut and sustainable palm. We use rosemary oil extract (ROE) as a plant based natural preservative. Many of the products contain botanical ingredients derived from the Nordic regions of Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. We make all of our soaps using the cold process method of manufacturing. This insures that the soap creates its own natural glycerin and the essential oils effectiveness is retained (by far the best soap making method). All of our soaps are completely safe to also be used on the face. Many people also use it to wash their hair, and many men use our soaps to shave. The soaps are hand-wrapped in recycled paper with a round label attached.

The quality ingredients that go into this product include the following:

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our base oil is used at a very high percentage of the mix. This beautiful oil is from the olive fruit using cold press extraction and decanting methods. Extremely beneficial for the skin, olive oil contains high levels of vitamins A & E, oleic acid and antioxidants. It also makes a great carrier oil for use with any essential oils. Our premium grade organic extra virgin olive oil penetrates deep into the skin, providing needed moisturizing as well as a shield to protect the skin, keeping it smooth, and due to its high level of antioxidants A & E, it can repair skin damage from sun exposure, cigarette smoke and pollutants.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Used in the base mix of oils, coconut oil is derived from the coconut fruit. This vitamin rich oil is used in body care products for its naturally emollient (softening) and lubricating properties. This gentle oil is naturally antiseptic and antioxidant, making it a great ingredient for the skin. Hydrating and soothing make this oil a perfect addition in skin care.

Organic Extra Virgin Sustainable Palm Oil

The palm oil that we source for our soaps is “Certified Sustainable Palm Oil” (CSPO). This oil is produced on palm plantations that have been independently audited and found to comply with the globally agreed environmental standards devised by the Roundtable Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Palm oil is derived from the pulp of the fruit of the palm tree. It is red in color due to its high beta-carotene content making it high in antioxidants and extremely good to use in skin care products. Palm oil is good to use in soap as it gives hardness to the bar making it last for a longer period of time.

Rosemary Oleoresin (Rosemary Oil Extract)

Rosemary Oleoresin, also known as Rosemary oil extract or ROE is an oil soluble, natural extract of the leaves of the rosemary plant used to retard rancidity in natural oils. Its potent antioxidant properties are attributed in large part to carnosic acid, one of its major constituents. ROE is 100% natural and is the most effective natural preservative to be used in the manufacture of cold process soap.

Geranium Essential Oil

This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the Rose Geranium plant. It has a gentle floral scent with a minty, fresh finish. Geranium essential oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Used in skin care, it can help balance the function of the oil glands and has cellular regenerating properties.

Organic Patchouli Essential Oil

Steam distilled from the dried leaves of the Patchouli plant, this rejuvenating oil is invigorating to the skin and the senses. Naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, this fragrant oil is especially useful topically and in aromatherapy. Studies have shown Patchouli essential oil to possess cell-restorative properties and it is particularly helpful for dry and mature skin. Many of our customers really love our Patchouli essential oil as they are familiar with the use of a “Patchouli fragrance” that just doesn't compare.

Lemongrass Essential Oil

Steam distilled from the grassy herb Lemongrass, this oil is high in vitamins A, B and C. Lemongrass has been shown to be naturally antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibacterial, and especially refreshing to the senses. Lemongrass essential oil has cleansing properties and is particularly useful for oily skin, plus it smells fantastic.

Stone Ground Grits

This is added to create a little exfoliation to the mix.

To keep your bar longer, keep it dry between uses. We recommend that you try one of our soap dishes or buy a dish that drains the bar well. Enjoy your soap and just a bit of information, most of our customers say that our soaps usually last approximately one month per bar.
