Grapefruit Bergamot Soap with Calendula
This is our most popular soap. The olive oil for this soap was infused with bright orange and golden calendula blossoms from our own gardens for a full month, then strained and infused again with fresh blossoms. A wonderfully oil with lovely color is the result. Pure essential oils of grapefruit and bergamot (think of Earl Grey tea) are added along with a spoonful of dried, chopped calendula petals. The resulting bar is gentle, a delight to the nose, and a visual pleasure. We'll continue to batch this soap until our supply of calendula infused oil and beautiful dried petals dwindles.
All of our small batch and handcrafted soaps start with a high percentage of olive oil making them perfect for any skin type. Olive oil is nourishing and calming to the skin, it is believed to have cell-regenerative capabilities. Coconut oil is moisturizing, and contributes to a lovely bubbly lather. The addition of palm oil (sustainably produced) creates a hard, long lasting bar of soap that is mild and cleanses well. Castor oil is rich in fatty acids and a wonderful skin softener and conditioner.
