Another great facial bar with true Patchouli and Cedarwood essential oils well known for their benefits for skin, and organic green tea, all of which are extremely beneficial and skin-healthy ingredients. We use the real stuff – real patchouli essential oil and we don’t skimp. Cedarwood, Patchouli, and green tea are all well-known to be very beneficial for maturing skin, sensitive and/or chapped skin, in particular, but this is a great bar of soap for any skin type. Add this with the 30% organic shea butter and organic coconut and olive oils, it really can’t be beat. Oh – and it really, really smells good!

This latest batch made August 2010 - we added the Cedarwood after receiving the suggestion from a customer. We were bemoaning the fact that we didn't think we could keep making Patchouli soap because the cost of real Patchouli essential oil was just too high to justify the cost - unless we raised the price drastically. The customer suggested adding Cedarwood - I'm thinking duh! Why didn't I think of that? Well, we did add it and it makes a beautiful combination. We don't use the endangered Cedarwood, ours is Texas Cedarwood and has a bolder fragrance, softened nicely with the Patchouli.Texas cedarwood is distilled from the oil-rich heartwood and has properties similar to other cedarwoods and also sandalwood but at a price that makes it affordable for use in soap.
