Natural Lavender Bar Soaps
Scrub-a-dub-dub, lavender’s gonna heal you in the tub.
If magic were a herb, it would be lavender. If fairy dust has a fragrance, it’s lavender. If, by any chance, unicorns are real somewhere in the universe – their flightpath exudes a sweet lavender scent.
Back on planet earth, on our 100% off-grid lavender farm in the Carmel Valley, we’ve seen the tremendous benefits of lavender.
Our sole purpose in life, in addition to raising our 2.5 year old daughter and soon-to-arrive son, is to promote the benefits of lavender to everyone who’ll listen!
While lavender is a great addition to your kitchen and also has proven to contain healing properties for your mental health, its natural chemical composition lends itself to several uses for your skin.
Lavender Bar Soaps
You can make lavender soaps just with lavender, but what if you could add other helpful ingredients to create a magical experience? That’s what we were thinking when we came up with our soaps.
Olive oil was the original soap. Ancient Romans used to slather it all over themselves to clean off the grime and dirt from a hard-day’s work or just rubbing shoulders with all those icky people in the Colosseum after a Gladiator battle.
Yes, the same olive oil that you lovingly drizzle over your favorite salads, breads, and pastas is amazing for the skin. The chemical composition of olive oil is similar to that of the human skin – weird but true. This helps it get absorbed easily into your pores and keeps your skin healthy and glowing.
Olive oil is packed with vitamins A, D, K and E. It’s also packed with antioxidants. But, why should you use it?
Actresses Julia Roberts, Sophia Loren, and Emily Blunt are all well-known proponents of olive oil as a moisturizer.
Don’t believe actresses? Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, found more than 60 uses of olive oil in healing of the skin amongst other ailments.
Perfect for every skin type, shea butter is a tree nut ingredient. Due to its natural chemical composition – it has moisturizing effects on the skin without being oily – bonus.
Patients of dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema are advised to apply shea butter as part of their treatment. Shea butter also has properties that result in plump skin – great to hide those fine lines.
While there are no reported allergic reactions to shea butter is natural and perfectly suitable for everyone, if you do have reactions from it, consult a doctor.
Mahatma Gandhi was probably one of the most famous lovers of goat milk. He famously drank it instead of cow or buffalo milk. But we doubt he knew that goat milk has the same acidity as human skin.
Goat milk on your face means a deep cleanse without disturbing the natural protective layers.
The naturally occurring lactic acid in goat milk produces ceramides, which protect the skin from bacteria and dirt – while preserving the moisture inside.
Other chemical properties of goat milk also help produce softer skin.
The fragrant lemongrass is a welcome addition to any skincare regimen. It helps detox the skin and improves its texture.
Lemongrass is also super useful to heal small cuts and wounds. Being part of the citrus family, lemongrass also has a grassy citrus aroma which translates beautifully during bathtime.
Often used in cooking South Asian delicacies, the humble lemongrass even battles UV rays, and prevents sunburn.
If puffy eyes are your enemy, then Rosemary is your best friend. Rosemary’s baby, however, is a different story. Sorry, I had to make that joke.
Filled with anti-inflammatory properties, rosemary also helps moisturize the skin, stimulates blood flow, and cleans the dirt from deep pores.
Put the lime in the coconut if you want a tasty beverage. Put the coconut oil on your face if you want protection from UV rays, to prevent wrinkles, and reduce the darkness and even helps to remove makeup after a night out.
But wait, there’s more. Coconut oil is also known to have antibacterial and antifungal properties, leading to a cleaner and richer skin.
Lavender is naturally fragrant and has a ton of benefits for your skin. It is helpful in treating scars from acne. It also brightens and promotes a shinier skin.
Lavender’s natural antiseptic properties also help prevent lines and wrinkles on the face.
