December Soap of the Month is Here!
This chilly month of December, our skin begins to experience additional stress due to vast changes in temperature, especially when we are constantly moving from indoors to outdoors. This skin stress leads to irritation, sensitivity, redness, and of course, dryness.
To combat dryness, we have included Safflower Oil in this month's formulation as it contains lubricating properties which prompt the skin to retain water and moisture. Coconut and Olive Oils pack an additional punch of skin softening and antioxidants!
In addition to the great moisturizing properties of the oils, we have used a touch of Madder Root Powder to help boost skin healing as it has been known to assist with problematic skin. It also offers a delicate reddish color to the soap.
Carefully selected essential oils such as Tangerine and Dorado Azul refresh the senses and can soothe the emotional stress (and grief) as well as balance anxiety experienced during the holiday season.
Each month we create a soap targeted to benefit the skin for that season. The essential oils are chosen to nurture the emotions generally arising during that month as well as provide skin nourishment. Let us know if you would like to formulate something special for your month!
