This fantastic soap bar is made from olive-oil and water infusions of everything that's growing in my garden right now, in all of the soap's phases, creating a beautiful bar of soap, both herbaceous and sweet form the dominant notes of lavender and artemisia (absinthe). There is also added honey for moisture, and hints of rosemary and sage.
Like all of our soap, it is superfatted - which means it has wonderful moisturizing qualities due to high content of unsaponified oils within the formula. It is the same rich-lathering formula we've always had for our soaps, now handcrafted in our new studio in Clil by yours truly!
We're using olive oil that was cold-pressed from olive which were organically grown in a Druze village near Mt. Meron infused with summer wild-harvest of Three-Lobed Sage (Salvia fruiticosa) leaves and resin; Oganic virgin coconut oil (both are food grade quality), palm oil and castor oil for that extra emollient quality. The finely ground and infused myrrh resin provides both healing and nourishment for the skin, as well a bit of "peeling" effect for renewed and rejuvenated skin, further softened by the honey.
The result is a hard, long-lasting bar with rich lather that is very moisturizing - a real treat for your skin, hair and even for shaving; and with a surprisingly warm, sweet, herbaceous tea-like aroma of lavender and artemisia, sweetened by honey.
