HANDMADE SOAP/ PEPPERMINT & EUCALYPTUS
Dusky grey in colour and minty in scent, the Peppermint + Eucalyptus Wash Block is a stress buster, scalp healer and chemical cleanser. Often used in aromatherapy, peppermint and eucalyptus allow you to unwind and refresh at the same time. And, the soap is vegan friendly, handmade in small batches and packed with natural ingredients.
+ Peppermint has a sharp, menthol scent, which makes it a great remedy for tension headaches and relieving stress. It has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, which means it can calm skin and eliminate dandruff from the scalp.
+ Eucalyptus oil is a useful addition to a natural first aid kit. It has antiseptic and antifungal powers, so it is perfect for cuts, blisters, bruises and skin irritation. Should you have a blocked nose, it is also one for clearing the airways.
+ Activated charcoal sounds like an unusual industrial ingredient to be rubbing on your face, but actually it is commonly used in medicine. Not only can it treat poisons and cure hangovers, it can also trap nasty chemicals.
+ Vitamin E keeps skin happy and eyes bright. It’s antioxidant properties means it is good at protecting the skin from unpleasant toxins and the sun’s powerful rays.
+ Coconut oil moisturises dry skin, removes makeup, reduces wrinkles, prevents dandruff, protects from the sun and smells like a tropical holiday. It is also mega healthy, but it is definitely not consumable in this context!
+ Shea butter is pretty handy because it can be rapidly absorbed into the skin, taking other active ingredients with it. It is also rich in Vitamin A and E, and has a natural SPF of Six.
