This delicately scented wild calendula, orange & poppy soap is made with a fabulous blend of oils and delicious butters, and hand picked ingredients. This soap is fabulously fresh and lovely to use. Suitable for all skin types.
Calendula grows wild in my garden (and in other secret spots around my neighbourhood). I hand pick it, air-dry, then infuse into olive oil; plus I make a tisane (tea) with it and both are used to make this soap. This soap also contains dried and ground orange peel from my garden, which adds some colour and along with the poppy seeds, a nice exfoliation.
Calendula is a wonderful plant used throughout the ages for it’s medicinal qualities, including as a healing agent for the skin. It is one of the best herbs for treating burns, scalds, cuts, abrasions and infections because of its antiseptic and healing qualities.
Available as 25 g and 100 g bars.
Olive & coconut oils, NZ tallow, Shea & cocoa butter, local seawater, sodium hydroxide*, castor oil, paprika infused olive oil, orange & litsea essential oils kaolin, wild-harvested calendula petals & orange powder, poppy seeds & love.

Before use – To store handmade soap before using, please ensure you keep them somewhere dry and dark, away from humidity (not in the bathroom, instead store in linen cupboard, closet or drawers).
While in use – For maximum longevity while using, please store on a well drained soap dish or shelf and allow to dry out between uses. Ask for a free pumice at check out to use as a soap stand.
Please note: All my soap are handcrafted and cut in small batches so variations will occur in appearance, however each bar still contains all the fantastic ingredients listed. I am not making any medical claims regarding this product.
