“I am very pleased with the Patchouli Orange soap—my skin feels remarkably soft and maintains its moisture. I have very sensitive skin and it is so hard to find products I can use. The herbal soaps have infused my bathroom, as well as my senses, with the scent of rain and trees; good for the body and for the soul.”
Lisa Berentsen, Myrtle Beach, SC
“Imagine the two of you driving along to a Super Soap Convention. You're passing these rooftops, and there's this crazy woman standing on top of one with her arms out, and she's shouting something: I LOVE YOUR SOAP, HERBARIA!”
Margaret Bertucci, Ft. Riley, KS
First you’ll pick up the scent of freshly squeezed Valencia oranges. That’s the volatile top note of the soap’s natural perfume, the initial fragrance that bursts forth. We pair the orange perfectly with base notes from dark, Indonesian patchouli. Mysterious and deep, patchouli lingers to sustain the satisfying experience of this soap.
We sold this bar for many years, and indeed it was popular, as Hemp Seed Oil soap. It was one of LaRee’s original recipes. However, the old name did not adequately describe the essential oil mix. We make it just the same, superfatted with plenty of hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil provides numerous skin friendly benefits. Non-greasy, it contains antioxidants, carotene, Vitamin E and a number of healthy minerals. It is common in many skin preparations because it is anti-inflammatory and promotes both good skin balance and healing support for skin irritations. That qualifies Patchouli Orange as one of our recommended bars for sensitive skin.
If you are looking to be knocked out with a powerful patchouli bar, you’ll want our Patchouli Hemp Seed Oil soap.
