Basil + Lemon (Vegan)

Write a Review

Basil + Lemon is a walk in a summer garden, a fresh and herbal soap that will delight everyone in the family. It smells like fresh herbs, with a bit of spicy notes.
Fresh basil leaves from my garden are used in the soap, to create a seasonal product, anchored in the season. The organic olive oil was infused with Holy Basil (also known as Tulsi, or Ocimum tenuiflorum) for 8 weeks.
A souvenir of a summer day.

100% Saponified Organic Olive Oil infused in homegrown Holy Basil (Ocimum Tenuiflorum) for 8 weeks, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Castor Oil, Essential Oil Blend (Litsea Cubeba, Basil, Rosemary), French Green Clay, dried Basil Leaves from my garden.

Cold Process Soap
I make my soap using the cold process method, which is the traditional way of making soap. The process includes first, letting the soap harden in a mold for several days, then a curing period of 4-6 weeks depending on what oils are used. 
This is why soaps in my shop are not always available after a scent has sold out.
All my soaps are superfatted at 5%, which means that some fat in the soap are not saponified, which is one of the reasons my handcrafted soap is gentle on your skin (that and the fact I am not using any synthetic fragrance or colorant).

How to use
Lather and Rinse. Test on small area of skin first, stop use if irritation occurs. Essential oils can be irritant to sensitive skins. If you have very sensitive skin, I recommend using an unscented bar of soaps.

How to care for your soap
With proper care, your natural handcrafted soap will last longer than industrially made soaps. Make sure your soap is on a small dish that allows for airflow between usage to extend its lifespan.
If you don't have a soap dish yet, I sell some soap dishes made locally.

Net Weight approx. 4 oz. My soaps are handcrafted and hand cut, actual weight and appearance may vary slightly.
