Herbalists praise the healing powers of comfrey and aloe vera. We bring them together with the fabulous scent of juniper berry and spearmint, to create this skin comforting, and refreshing soap. The active agent in comfrey, allantoin, has been used for centuries as a natural way to heal rashes, inflammation and other skin problems. Doctors in ancient China called aloe the “the harmonic remedy” because of its healing properties.
This bar is loaded with skin loving oils and butters. Juniper berry tones the skin and has been used to treat eczema. The toning action of green clay stimulates the skin bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion while tightening pores. This clay is great for oily skin and helps to clear problem skin. The essential oil blend provides a warm, woodsy spearmint scent that energizes the mind, yet calms the spirit. Great for an invigorating and refreshing shower!

How to use
What Should I Use With My Soap to Clean My Body?
The purpose of soap is to combine with oil and dirt on the body, which allows water to wash it away, but you need to use something to get that soap onto your skin. The method you use to cleanse your skin is really personal preference. We thought we would share just a few examples.
The Bar Buffer rubs the bar directly on their skin to create lather and wash. This is definitely the best way to use exfoliating soaps and some believe they get the best moisturizing using this direct bar method.
The Hand Latherer creates lather in their clean hands and uses the lather to wash. This gentle, mild cleansing method may be good for those with sensitive skin.
Washcloth Washers: Washcloths, made out of lots of different textile textures, from soft cotton to agave fibers, can provide very gentle to intense exfoliation. Be sure washcloths are laundered and dried often.
The Nylon Puffer uses a mesh puff that works up a foamy, bubbly lather, even with hard water, to wash and gently exfoliate the skin. Poofs make natural soap last longer but can harbor bacteria, so rinse thoroughly after use and replace every few weeks or clean per manufacturer’s instructions.
Loofah Latherers: Some people love their loofahs that exfoliate and help increase circulation. Whole loofahs can be breeding grounds for bacteria, so be sure they dry out properly after use and replace them every two months.
Soap Sackers place their soap into a nylon soap bag. The fibers can have a smooth texture for gentle cleansing, like cotton muslin, or a rougher texture for exfoliation, like sisal or ramie. Soap sacks can be used for whole bars of soap or scraps that would normally be thrown away.
There is a large variety of bathing accessories available. If using any accessory, never share them with others and replace or clean them often.
