Our Verbena Soap is French and is made by Savon de Marseille, a french soap maker. The ingredients are 100% natural and have not been tested on animals as well as being enriched with soothing shea butter.

Lemon Verbena, also known as Herb Louisa and Aloysia Triphylla, is native to Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Central America. This plant was named after Maria Luisa, the Princess of Parma. It was brought into Europe by the returning Spanish sometime in the 17th or 18th century. Lemon Verbena flowers its pretty purple buds during August to October. It blooms during late summer and is used for its strong lemon scent. The essential oil is extracted from this herb that has various healing properties. 

Lemon verbena oil has actually been made use of for centuries and it was a well-known therapeutic oil throughout the Victorian era. Particularly for healing muscle spasms, indigestion and also as a sedative. 

Lemon Verbena is known for its therapeutic properties today. It breaks down cellulite, and hence, offers a healing, toning and relaxing effect to the skin. That is the reason this herb is often used in the preparation of natural soaps. Lemon Verbena soap suits all skin types and makes the skin feel soft and toned. The essential oil of this herb is gentle on the skin and helps maintain the proper balance of the skin’s natural oils. The soap helps to give the skin an even tone. 

Lemon Verbena has mild astringent qualities that help in cleaning the skin and getting rid of bacteria that cause acne and pimples. It also aids in getting rid of mild facial scars and blemishes. 

The Lemon Verbena oil present in the soap gets rid of excess sebum and pollutants from the skin without causing excessive dryness. It also gets rid of bacteria that cause acne, thereby leaving you with a blemish-free skin.

Its plant-derived oils help in giving the skin a nourished and clean feeling. It offers smoothness to skin and uplifts it after every wash. The soap contains the goodness of flavonoids that soothe and nourish the skin, thereby giving it a radiant appearance.
