Luxurious Shea and Cocoa Butter soaps infused with honey and herbal oils
One of the reasons I started making my own soap and body care products was that I hated the overuse of scents that bombards us everywhere we go. All my life my eyes have watered and my nasal passages burned when walking through the detergent isle at a grocery store or through the cosmetics department of a department store. I needn’t mentioned those weird chemical soup air “fresheners” that plug into power sockets. Fortunately, unlike many, these unnatural olfactory assaults don’t, for me, trigger migraines, nausea, or other more serious effects of chemical sensitivity; they are just an annoyance . . . well, probably a long-term health hazard as well when one considers the toxic, carcinogenic effects of these phthalate-laden fake smells.
I made these soaps so those who want a truly luxurious bar with all the goodies – shea butter, cocoa butter, creamy castor oil, carefully infused with healthful, skin-loving, soothing herbs – but without the scent; something far more exciting and skin friendly than just a plain jane unscented soap.
These soaps are a good choice for infants and small children, fragile elderly skin, and also a great idea for those who are temporarily intolerant to scent and prone to nausea, whether due to pregnancy, chemotherapy, etc., but who would still love to use a wonderfully luxurious natural soap.
I couldn’t find anything like these soaps anywhere . . . so I had to create them myself, and I absolutely LOVE them!
