Strawberry Soap: In addition to the main soap ingredients red mica colouring, and poppy seeds and fragrance are added to give it a strawberry like feel. The fresh scent comes from a tiny bit of sweet orange essential oil which has the added benefit of increasing the cleansing factor of this gentle bar of soap.
Lavender Soap: Pure lavender essential oil is added to a plain honey soap base. We occasionally drip this one with the honey clear soap and sprinkle with lavender buds (seasonally). Here on Vancouver Island the lavender grows to huge bushes and is alight with our honey bees much of the year.
Oatmeal Soap: In addition to the main soap ingredients there is also both cooked and raw oatmeal added. The almond fragrance gives this bar the scent of marzipan. This is a favorite for those with sensitive skin. The oatmeal soothes broken skin while gently cleansing. This is an essential bar for those who love sweet bakery scents in their skin care.
Salish Sea Soap: The Salish Sea soap is a customer favourite. To make this soap Jen takes a trip to the beach to collect fresh seaweed, blackberry leaves, Salish Sea brine, and sand. The blackberry leaves are washed and pureed, the Salish Sea brine is left to grow salt crystals after it’s been boiled and filtered, she washes the seaweed, and the sand is baked and sifted. This soap is a true representation of beautiful Vancouver Island.
Detox Soap: In addition to the main soap ingredients, it contains activated bamboo charcoal and activated hardwood charcoal. A unique blend of peppermint, lavender, tea tree, and Eucalyptus Globus give this detox blend its skin tingling qualities. This is a favorite of many athletes who use it for its tingle factor as the essential oils stimulate the skin and help the body to detoxify.
Cathedral Grove: Cathedral Grove is one of the most beautiful ancient Douglas Fir forests on the island, where the air carries a fresh and natural perfume. Our new soap was created with this landmark in mind. Fragranced with with Douglas Fir essential oil and sweet orange to add that bit of sunshine to the scent. Next to many other natural ingredients this soap contains pine tar, known for its antipruritic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Pine resin was also added to the formula for its additional skin healing qualities. These special ingredients make this soap very soothing for troubled skin. A must have!
Coffee Soap: Only the best Columbian and Ethically traded coffee beans are added to the basic soap base. The fragrance is a strong coffee fragrance oil. Coffee is said to help counteract the scent of garlic and other strong fragrances on the hands. With a brush or cloth, you can even use this soap to hand wash your dishes.
