We made this soap for dry skin prone to eczema. One of our friends was struggling to find a soap mild enough to wash with, almost all that she tried caused her skin to tighten and crack. We have packed this soap full of flowers and herbs known for their skin healing properties.
This soap is a dream for dry, sensitive skin.
Chamomile is soothing for inflammation and generally calming – Culpepper says “(it can be used) in bathing to comfort and strengthen”.
Stellaria and Plantain have long been used for inflammation and ulcers and as a cooling poultice.
We add a touch of Lavender because of its antiseptic and calming properties and Wild Oregano for its fungistatic, astringent and antiseptic properties.
Finally we added Bayleaf that has been used for generations in the Middle East and its pedigree as a skin nourishing herb is well established. Bayleaf is soothing and mildly antiseptic. It’s great for healing sprains, cuts and bruises and soothing insect bites and stings. It is anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.
