How we make our soap
The joy of using top quality bathing products and the love of natural essential oils combined with challenging skin inspired me to have a go at making my own soap in 2018.
I was keen from the start not to use palm oil for my own ethical reasons but also to keep it simple and not add anything that wasn’t necessary in terms of enhancing bubbles or harden the bar, I was concerned that anything in addition to a basic soap recipe had the potential to irritate the skin.
Part of the saponification process (the chemical reaction that turns the combined ingredients into soap) generates glycerine which alongside the oils and butters in the soap will help to leave the skin feel moisturised and nourished.
The addition of natural essential oils help to boost the luxury levels of each bar. I have spent many hours combining different essential oils to get the perfect balance to each bar and a variety of fragrances to appeal to the most discerning of noses. The essential oils that I have chosen are all restorative, relaxing, soothing and nourishing to the senses so that each use is a pleasurable and enhancing experience.
Along side the simplicity and luxury of the soap I want to inject a fun element so the names of the soaps reflect a playfulness and love of music, some of the names are more obvious than others.
The colours are all mineral micas and I do love a bit of colour in my life.
