Benefits of Argan Soap

lynne travis

Natural Moroccan argan oil is a rare and precious oil harvested from the fruit of the Argan tree, which is native to the Mediterranean. Argan trees grow and miraculously survive in semi-desert areas of the Mediterranean. The deep roots and small leaves of the argan tree allow it to resist arid winds and water loss, resulting in a nut with a unique oil profile.

Savon de Marseille Patchouli Soap

The name of patchouli is believed to be derived from a word meaning "green leaf" in the Indian Tamil language, where the shrub thrives. Patchouli is a member of the mint family and is grown and produced throughout Asia, where it has been used in traditional medicines and ceremonies in many cultures. It has many benefits when harnessed within a cleansing bar, patchouli oil can act as an anti-fungal, antiseptic and contains anti-inflammatory properties. 

Patchouli can help reduce tension and lift your spirits, just inhaling its characteristically musky, woodsy, earthy scent can have a deeply relaxing, even aphrodisiac effect on our mind and body. Patchouli is actually used as an important note in perfumes, providing warmth to the overall effect, patchouli oil gets better with age, becoming more robust and valuable to the perfumer.

Regular use of patchouli soap as part of your skin routine can have a positive effect on your body in a physical as well as emotional way. Patchouli is good for dry skin and is said to benefit people with eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis and is a natural skin healer as well as helping improve marks left by acne and scar tissue.

Our Patchouli Soap is French and is made by Savon de Marseille, a french soap maker.
