Patchouli Homemade Soap
Patchouli is an exotic, sexy, scent that is either loved or hated. There is no middle ground here.
The 60's was the era for free love, peace and patchouli.
The health benefits of patchouli essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, cicatrizant, cytophylactic, deodorant, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicide, insecticide, sedative, and a tonic substance.
This bar of soap 100% natural, except for the fine glitter on top. I like things that sparkle.
The beautiful blue swirls are created with a plant powder called Indigo. Wonderful stuff!
The white is created from adding Titanium Dioxide. Titanium, the ninth most common element in the Earth’s crust, is a metal commonly found in plants and animals. Titanium naturally interacts with oxygen to form titanium oxides, commonly found in ores, indigenous dusts, sands and soils.
Pure titanium dioxide is a fine, white powder that provides a bright, white pigment. Titanium dioxide has been used for a century in a range of industrial and consumer products, including paints, coatings, adhesives, paper, plastics and rubber, printing inks, coated fabrics and textiles, as well as ceramics, floor coverings, roofing materials, cosmetics, toothpaste, soap, water treatment agents, pharmaceuticals, food colorants, automotive products, sunscreen and catalysts.
Due to the handcrafted nature of my products, each bar may vary slightly in size and appearance.
