This is one for the hopeless romantic; our beautiful floral, pale pink soap is topped off with dark and light pink dried roses. This soap is fragranced naturally with Rose absolute, Geranium and Ho Wood. The rose plant originated from South Africa, as well as Reunion, Madagascar, Egypt and Morocco and introduced to European countries in the 17th century. There are about 700 different varieties of rose, yet only ten provide essential oil in viable quantities for extraction. We may be mad, but we also use a small amount of Rose Absolute - it takes over a hundred kilos of rose petals to produce around 30 grams of the absolute. This magnificent oil is a cell rejuvenator, an antiseptic, an aphrodisiac and is anti-inflammatory. The exquisite scent is used to relieve stress and depression. Geranium oil is not shown to cause any side effects, since it is non-toxic, non-irritant and generally non-sensitising, therefore this soap is very mild and gentle for fragile or sensitive skin types. This uplifting oil has a great all-over balancing effect for the skin -where it helps to create harmony for oily and dry skin, keeping the skin supple and clearing congested skin whilst soothing and nourishing dry skin types. A fabulous soap therefore, for all skin types that can be used in the shower or bath, also as a facial cleanser or as solid shampoo (please remember to remove the rose buds).
