Lemon Provence - Pure Essential Soap

Here is the second of the new Pure Essential Soap collection - Lemon Provence.  This soap is made with Sweet Almond & Golden Olive Oils, Oat Milk, Manuka Honey, Kaolin Clay, Colloidal Oatmeal, Cocoa Butter & Pure Silk.  The colour comes from a little Tumeric which makes a lovely buttery yellow. 

I made my own Oatmilk for this ... I took 4 cups of distilled water and 1 cup of organic Irish oatflakes and they sat, soaking, all night.  The next day, I liquidised them together until they made a milk.  I was going to sieve the milk to remove the oats but they were so finely mixed in that I decided to use them in the soap.  It makes the soap very slightly exfoliating.  I also love the little flecks the oats leave in the soap.  The only thing I'd say about using full oatmilk for your soaps is that the lye doesn't mix in well with it - at my first mix, the lye clumped into very hard lumps so that had be carefully disposed of.  For this soap, I made a 50/50 lye solution with distilled water and then used the oatmilk for the additional liquid values.. that worked perfectly.

Manuka Honey is a well known skin loving ingredient with anti-bacterial properties, Kaolin Clay is perfect for all types of skin especially sensitive and dry skin types and colloidal oatmeal just adds to the goodness the organic oats brings to the party.

The soap is fragranced with our own essential oil blend of lemony May Chang & soothing French
Lavender with a drop of deep Cedarwood to create a citrusy, relaxing divine scent.

 It will be available for Pre-Order on Many thanks to Titch Holland from for her video work.

Enough talk ... here are the photos! Hope you enjoy them!
