Licorice Kitchen Soap
$ 6.00 + tax USD
Anise is a sweet smelling essential oil that smells just like black licorice. You either hate the smell of licorice or love it. It can work to relieve muscular aches and pains. Fennel essential oil has a sweet and licorice-like aroma also. It is reputed to be used for anti-cellulite blends and purportedly helps with mood smoothing for tension and stress. It also is used to disinfect and clean kitchen cutting boards. A new discovery that a customer informed me that the soap works on dogs that have been skunked! And yes I have tried this and it does work better than the tomato juice etc. It's good to have on hand for the kitchen or the dog.
Olive oil moisturizes the skin by attracting external moisture, holding that moisture close to the skin and forming a breathable film to prevent loss of internal moisture. Olive oil is a particularly wonderful moisturizer, because it does not block any of the natural functions of the skin. The skin is able to sweat, breathe and shed dead skin. We cannot say enough good things about olive oil. We developed our formula to contain the highest amount of olive oil (30%) that we could without making the bar too soft. If you ever find a soap that claims to have a high percentage of olive oil and is a hard bar, know that this is most likely the result of added synthetics to harden the bar.
Shea Butter Also know as African karite butter, shea butter is pressed from the pits of the fruit of the Central African butter tree. Like olive oil, it conditions the skin without inhibiting the skin's natural functions. Shea butter is very rich and nourishing and is excellent for dry skin, yet gentle enough for babies and sensitive skin.
Coconut oil is derived from dried coconut meat. It moisturizes and gives the soap a quick, fluffy lather.
Palm oil comes from the fruit of the palm tree (a relative of the coconut tree). Palm oil is used as the vegetable alternative to tallow in soap making. It provides for a hard bar, cleans well and is mild.
