Available as a 4 ounce soap bar containing the following:
Cardamom Seed Powder (Elettaria cardamomum)
Cardamom, native to the rain forests of Southeast Asia, is the world's third most expensive spice. It is used in some personal care products for its stimulating balsamic scent. A difficult plant to get to thrive, we are currently growing Cardamom on an experimental basis.*
Indian Frankincense Oil (Boswellia serrata)
For thousands of years the resin from this ancient tree has been burned as incense. The oil distilled from the resin is traditionally used in soap and perfumery for its exotic sweet earthy scent. This species of Frankincense is currently not on the endangered list. We use the oil in this soap for its fragrance and as a natural preservative agent.*
African Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii)
Unrefined Shea Butter comes from the nuts of the Karite Tree which is native to West Africa. For centuries it has been obtained by boiling the dried cracked nuts and has a long history of use for skin care. Raw Shea Butter, high in vitamins A and E, is frequently used in soap.*
Labdanum Oil (Cistus ladanifer)
Labdanum Oil comes from a floral evergreen plant, native to the Mediterranean region, which exudes a sticky pungent resin with a musky smell. Traditionally used as a fragrance fixative in soap and perfumes, it is a botanical replacement for Ambergris.*
