Calendula with Solar Infused Calendula Oil - Calendula is best known for its natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and soothing effects and is considered a very effective herbal remedy for skin problems such as rashes, scratches, chapped skin, damaged skin and eczema. To make this bar we solar infuse (via the sun) calendula flowers into olive oil, and then use this oil to make the soap, ensuring the maximum benefit of the calendula flowers. This bar is unscented and suitable for sensitive skin, including children and babies.

Eucalyptus with Activated Coconut Charcoal - Activated coconut charcoal (which comes from the shells of coconuts) is used in this bar for its cleansing and purifying benefits, as it binds with dirt and other impurities on the skin. Combined with the Australian native Eucalyptus which has anti-inflammatory properties and a unique fresh and clean aroma, this bar is also gentle enough to use on the face. In fact, it is ideal for acne prone skin.

Lavender with Purple Clay & Lavender Oil - This Lavender & Clay bar combines the calming & soothing properties of lavender with the purifying effects of Brazillian purple clay.
Lavender is one of the most popular and widely used herbs of the mint family, and is commonly used in baths to purify the mind and spirit. Being able to breathe in the instant calming and relaxation effects from the lavender plant is truly one of natures wonderful gifts.

Lemon Myrtle with Macadamia Oil - The Lemon Myrtle bar is made using Lemon Myrtle from our very own front yard, as well as local Macadamia oil. When used on the skin, lemon myrtle acts as a powerful cleanser and helps to balance the skin’s natural oils, without stripping them away. Lemon myrtle also has astringent and antibacterial properties.
Macadamia oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are very moisturising, regenerating and softening on the skin. The linoleic acid (omega 6) in macadamia nut oil also helps to restore the skin’s barrier function.

Peppermint with Hemp Seed Oil - Peppermint has long been used as a skin tonic, cooling down inflammation and acting as a gentle, refreshing cleanser. Not only great for the skin, peppermint is revered as a comforting and invigorating scent for the psyche. This bar also contains locally sourced hemp seed oil, which is a great non-clogging oil that is packed with fatty acids that have been shown to reduce inflammation and encourage skin growth and new cell regeneration. This bar is particularly great for tired muscles and mental fatigue.

Rose with French Red Clay & Almond Oil - French Red Clay is full of silica and trace minerals and is used to maintain an even textured skin, as well as improving skin elasticity (plus it makes the nicest shade of pink without the use of artificial colours!)The scent of this bar comes from Rose Geranium essential oil, which has a very pleasant and uplifting aroma and has been shown to reduce inflammation and irritation of the skin. Sweet almond oil is added for its skin nourishing benefits as it is high in vitamin E, which helps to keep skin cells healthy and retain moisture. This bar also works beautifully as a face bar.
