Traditional lavender soap with a twist, with added rosemary for a herbal uplifting scent

Key Ingredients

Shea Butter is rich in vitamins, plant sterols, minerals and other nourishing compounds for the skin.  The butter softens, protects against drying, and nourishes.  High in vitamins E and A, shea butter locks in moisture, increases elasticity and evens out skin tone.

French Pink Clay contains a high number of useful minerals and ions including illite, montmorillionite and iron. Illite is useful as a natural cleanser, drawing dirt and other toxins out of the skin, helping to decongest pores and increase circulation to promote cell repair. French Pink Clay also gives our Cottage Garden soap a lovely salmon pink colour.

Lavender Essential Oil has been used for hundreds of years as it has a multitude of benefits. It is antibacterial, can help calm stress and anxiety and of course aids sleep.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil has a longstanding reputation as an essential oil particularly suited to women. It is supportive of the reproductive system and is also astringent, balancing the skin's production of sebum. Emotionally the oil is uplifting, as it can help with anxiety and depression.

What is soap made from?

Traditional cold process soap is made from a mixture of fatty acids - in our case plant oils and butters - mixed with an alkaline solution. In a bar of solid soap, the alkali used is sodium hydroxide, which turns the fatty acids into sodium salts, or soap!

You can tell what the starting oils are in a soap by their Latin name. For example Sodium Olivate is the soap that is formed from Olive Oil, Sodium Sweetalmondate is from Sweet Almond Oil and so on.

How long will my soap last?

One of the negative bits of feedback we receive (if you can call it that) is that our soap lasts too long!

It's really hard to say exactly how long your bar will last as there are lots of variables; how often it gets used, if it's just used for hands or also as a body wash in the shower, if it is allowed to dry between uses, if it is stored somewhere damp...

When we make our soap we cure every bar for at least 6 weeks to allow the bars to dry out and be long-lasting in use. The best thing you can do to prolong the life of your soap is to allow it to dry between uses. If you leave your soap in a puddle you'll undo all our hard work!

Any other ways to make soap last a long time?

1. Store your soap in a cool dry place.

2. Use a good soap dish so your soap isn't sat in a puddle.

3. Allow the air to get round the sides of the bar.

4. Have two bars on the go at the same time so you can alternate.

5. Don't waste any - stick the thin slither onto the front of your next bar.

I love this soap

My favourite soap from boo cottage botanical even if it's really hard to choose one.

I bought this soap as a gift for my niece Jennifer.
She was over the moon, and loves the smell and how it lathers so creamy on her skin leaving it so soft.
She's gone back home now to Bogota in Columbia, Boo Cottage soap being talked about across the pond !!

Absolute fan of lavender ...

Wonderful soap leaves my skin soft and refreshed. 10 out of 10 highly recommend not overly powerful just the right perfume.
