So this blend of ours will remind you of a winter holiday but there is more to this bar than the reference to the gifts brought to baby Jesus. If you want to know the essential oils of frankincense and myrrh were revered oils of that time and still are. I can imagine that the representation of the kings bringing these oils to this child showed how important he was, just because they were oils that not just anyone could have possession of. They were ceremonial oils that were important and I can imagine quite expensive, along with the gold that was given. Today the oils of frankincense and myrrh have purported benefits that have become very popular, it is an oil I frequently use in our household. I use a 3% dilution frankincense for joint pain on my knees, ankles and hands and I use both of these oils in a salve that I make for personal use. I will encourage you all to research these oils and the magnificent history and benefits they offer.
The third oil we add to this bar is Ceylon cinnamon. This is not the Chinese cassia cinnamon that is used for baking, this is the therapeutic type of cinnamon, yes there is a big difference! This is another oil I will encourage you to research, I will never tell you any essential oil will do something for you, I believe you need to research it for yourself to make an informed judgement. Another point I would like everyone to make a note of will be that I never, ever recommend using an essential oil in its pure form. Always dilute! My safe recommendation is 3%, especially when using a "hot" oil like cinnamon or oregano.
This bar also contains the skin loving oils of jojoba and sunflower and the luxurious cocoa butter. These oils are added to this bar to make it less oil stripping. You will never hear me say that a bar of soap will add moisture, instead I will tell you it will remove less oil. The fact that some will mention that soap will add moisture to your skin is debatable. Soap is a wash off product, it is meant to clean. So this bar is less stripping. Which is a real treat for your skin!
Also added to this bar are the "natural" colorants of cocoa powder and white kaolin clay, then we add silk protein for a very silky lather. On top we add a beautiful gold and purple mica swirl, love this bar!
These bars will be available May 22nd 2021 and this batch will be the last batch until fall, so get them while they last!
