We use pure essential oils in making our blends, which are environmentally friendly and skin-friendly. Essential oils are extracted from certain trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, roots, fruits, and flowers. The oil is concentrated in different parts of the plant. They are very potent and have their own fragrance. Fragrance oils are purely synthetic. They are synthetically made chemicals found in most commercially offered skincare products. Fragrance oils are problematic because they are drying and irritating to the skin and are highly toxic, causing many other potentially serious health problems.

The flower essences work extremely well with essential oils. They can be combined to create a soothing therapy that will support you immensely during the recovery process by bolstering positive vibrations, emotions and thoughts.
Handmade Natural Soaps FAQs
What is the difference between handmade soaps and commercial soaps?
Handmade soaps are full of good skin-loving ingredients. They contain natural ingredients such as plant-derived oils, glycerine, essential oils, herbs, fruits, and are free from preservatives. In contrast, commercial soaps are made of petroleum-based lathering agents, synthetic fragrances, harsh dyes and dangerous preservatives.
Why sometimes handmade soaps have imperfections?
Handmade soaps are processed and cut by hand, and if made through individual moulds, shape and size may vary from batch to batch. Temperature also plays an important role in deciding the final product’s colour, which may vary from batch to batch. There might appear some Soda ash on the soap, which is a harmless powder-like substance that forms when new soap meets air. This will completely disappear during the soap’s first use.
