Handmade Soap Bar -Papaya Ginger Lemongrass
The handmade soap bar artisan created this blend with one of her Mother’s Thai soups in mind. This soap has grounded lemongrass throughout the bar. The swirl is papaya powder, and the scent is ginger and lemongrass essential oil. Lemongrass essential oil is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, great for acne, and oily skin. A study was done on the inhibition of MRSA by essential oil diffusion. They investigated 91 essential oils, and found lemongrass essential oil to be the most effective. All of the handmade soaps have a base recipe of organic extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil, and organic shea butter. This particular soap also has organic jojoba oil. We don’t use palm oil in our soap in hopes of raising awareness of the devastating effects palm oil has on the deforestation rates of Indonesia and Malaysia.

My fiance uses this soap and seems to enjoy it. His skin was prone to irritations from previous soaps/body washes but this one has treated him well for over a year now.
