The fabulous scent of this simple yet elegant lavender & rose soap will bring a smile to your face and will leave you happy for the rest of the day. This soap was made using dock root as a natural colourant to achieve the soft pink colour.
The soap was made in a very small batch, by hand using the cold process method with skin-loving ingredients. It will gently clean without stripping your skin of its natural oils, as it retains the natural glycerine to help keep your skin moisturised after washing.
The oils were infused with dried root from the common broad-leafed (or bitter) Dock plant (Rumex obtusifolius), which produce a pink colour when mixed with alkali. The young leaves of the Dock plant can be eaten much like spinach, the “massaged” leaves can be used to treat nettles stings, and as well as used as a natural dye, the roots of the bitter dock plant can have a marked detoxifying effect on the liver and they also help to cleanse the skin of all its blemishes. So despite being a nuisance weed in gardens and parks, it can be quite a useful plant!
