Handmade Soap - Rosemary, Sage & Thyme
Herby and fresh
Herbs works well together, it's another Law Of Soaping. And we've been asked for this particular mix so often in the Custom Made section that we know there's a demand for it. The rosemary and sage combine to do all the antibacterial work and the thyme just softens the woodiness of the other two and gives it that herby kick. The soft gentle colour marbled in there is achieved with French clay which makes the lather super dense and creamy too, a really rich freshening bar, great for waking you up in the morning.

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Rosemary, Sage & Thyme
I received this as a gift with another order, it's not one I would have thought to try. A sticky soap in hand, doesn't go flying in the shower which is handy! Nice lather, nice smell ( though it made me a bit hungry) and a lovely clean feeling. Will be trying out some others soon.
