The twist is in the fragrance; the lavender is immediately obvious, but you will also notice the added dimension of rosemary for a modern take on a classic.
Handcrafted cold processed soap with sweet almond oil. Naturally coloured with infused alkanet root. Relaxing lavender and fragrant rosemary give an earthy floral scent.
Our Lavender Twist soap, like all of our soaps, is made using the ‘cold processed’ method, a traditional way of making soaps that has been around since Babylonian times.
Lavender Twist soap contains lashings of Extra Virgin Olive oil, luxurious Cocoa butter, cleansing Coconut oil and nourishing Sweet Almond oil. We combine these oils and butters with protecting Beeswax and soothing Rice Bran oil to produce a soap that makes a soft, fluffy lather to cleanse your skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
We use a natural colourant for our Lavender Twist soap; Alkanet root. Alkanet root (Alkannatinctoria) is traditionally used in the fabric industry as a natural dye. We infuse our Olive oil with the dried root for a minimum of six weeks before we make a batch of soap. The oil becomes a fabulously dark red oil which turns into a pale purple-grey in our soap. Please note this colour can be quite variable depending on the plant’s natural variations; sometimes our soap batches can be a very dark purple.

Why we have chosen some of our ingredients:
Sweet Almond oil is a soothing, nutritious oil, able to retain skin moisture and prevent trans epidermal water loss. The oil is a rich source of Vitamin E, squalene and phytosterols, providing anti-inflammatory, protective and skin repairing properties.
Lavender Essential oil has been used for hundreds of years as it has a multitude of benefits. It is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal. Lavender calms down inflammation and speeds up wound healing. The scent can help calm stress and anxiety and of course aids sleep.
Rosemary Essential oil is toning and cleansing, containing potent antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Rosemary has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system and improves circulation. Did you know that smelling rosemary can help to improve your memory?
