One of the many reasons why my primary soap formula additive, honey, is an excellent choice is that it helps keep the bars fresher longer. My Honey Chunk bars wear down gradually, and because they reveal more and more of the my Golden Glycerin chunks, look prettier and prettier. The featured image of my bar in this blog post, has been used in our shower for one week and it looks great.
Never throw away the small bits and pieces of soap that remain when the bar is finished. Instead, place them in a mesh bag and use them as a fantastic body scrub!
The soft mesh bags I give to my customers who purchase a set of 4 or more bars, (seen below) are soft enough to use head to toe. So just like my Honey Chunk bars, they make showering easier and so much better for your skin.
Essential oils are added to every bar of Coastal Honey Bees Soaps I make. They give the formula special bonuses in both aromatherapy value and skin care value.
Bergamot has been a favorite of mine for a long, long time. And, for those of you wondering why you may never have heard of it, all I can do is ask you a question, “Have you ever had Earl Grey Tea?” Bergamot is what gives EG it’s signature fragrance and flavor. If you’ve never had that particular variety of tea, I highly recommend it.
It is an herb that makes a beautiful flower – very attractive to bees and birds – and it is widely used in skin care and foods. It gives a gentle orange flavor that is uniquely its own. Unlike other, artificial, “big fragrances”, bergamot essential oil is subtle and much kinder to sensitive skin.
I ONLY use essential oil that is 100% pure, and my bergamot is derived from the citrus bergamia plant.
Why it’s good in my soaps.
Bergamot, like every other pure essential oil I use, brings natural freshness, keeps bar soaps free from unwanted bacteria growth, and also works well with the other oils I use, such sweet almond oil, to nourish and protect your skin.
