We use Stratford-upon-Avon honey from Peter Edwards stirred into this soap mix to give softness to the soap and moisture to the skin.
The beeswax gives a delicious slight honey scent, overlaced with the subtle scent of orange, whilst the Calendula steeped olive oil and Calendula petals offers gentle soothing properties. The addition of pounded oats makes this a good mild exfoliator, especially for gardeners’ hands or hands that do a lot of manual work.
Orange oil is reputed to have an uplifting, calming effect on the mind and an anti-septic action on the skin. It gives a refreshing and clean scent
Calendula is wonderful for so many skin complaints promoting rapid healing of damaged or inflamed tissues. It has been used for centuries by Herbalists and Homeopaths alike.
