Lucky Dip handmade soap!
We have a quantity of handmade soap which was unlabelled in our recent move, and as clever as our noses are, we don't want to make bold claims as to their 'flavours' on smell alone. What we can claim, however, is that they are beautiful, natural, and perform exactly as they always have. With this in mind, we have lowered the price of this particular batch.
For your reference, it may be coconut and teatree, lemon and aloe vera, rose and lime, rosemary and palmarosa, or rosewood and basil. What it won't be is oatmeal and honey, as that is distinctive and there is a separate listing for it, as there is for the labelled coconut and teatree.
Our handmade, small batch, cold process soap is pure old school luxury. Made using the time-honoured method with purified water, oil and lye, this process of soapmaking has been employed for thousands of years, and remains unchanged since the time of Babylon, in 2800BC.
Supermarket soap is made from chemicals that you do not want on your skin or being absorbed into your body. They will only temporarily make your skin feel soft, and long-term use will cause dryness, itching and flaking.

1) Many of these chemicals are carcinogenic and bio-accumulative, they never leave your body once absorbed. For example, nearly all commercial soap is made using melt and pour chemical process and contains Methylisothiazolinone, a chemical proven to cause neurodegenerative disorders and seizures. This is just one of the dodgy ingredients in your storebought soap, there are many more.
