Last week was really hectic so could not tell you all about this. Recently made this amazing, dark & handsome soap with freshly crushed Neem leaves, Cold Pressed Neem Oil and essential Oil of Basil or Tulsi. Perrrrfect for this humid monsoon season starting up. All these ingredients are considered good for the skin and have anti-bacterial properties.
And to top it all, it has crushed walnut powder to give the skin a mild scrub.
Now these soaps are cut and curing on my soap rack. Since I make only small batches, it happens that by the time the word goes out, the batch is close to finishing. So if you like it, pre-book it now. I will be shipping them starting 24th June.
Enjoy the rains.
The handmade soaps that I make have ingredients which have known benefits for skin and have been used for skin care since a long time. They are so good for the skin that you can directly use them as massage oils.
Coconut Oil keeps the skin nourished and soft. It also has anti-aging properties and protects the skin from harmful effects of the Sun. Have a look at how many ways you can use coconut oil here
Castor oil has been used for centuries for its anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties. It is one of the most widely used ingredients in cosmetics, soaps, massage oils etc. Castor oil is an excellent emollient for the facial skin
Olive Oil is loaded with antioxidants and nutrition. Olive oil can also help repair skin damage from sun exposure, cigarette smoke and pollutants. Using it as a massage oil in winters can keep your skin soft and supple.
Commercial soaps contain so many chemicals; I don’t think any manufacturer will ever recommend putting the ingredients directly on skin 😉
