Handmade Soap - Egyptian House Blend
Goats milk infused soap
We had to do something Egyptian inspired, being where we are, so came up with a Cleopatra-worthy mix of basil, palmarosa and rosewood that's just, if we say so ourselves, delicious. All these Egyptian oils combine to make a heady, almost perfumey scent that's like nothing else, a truly indulgent mix that's nothing like the sum of its parts. And while we're channeling Cleo herself, we included goats milk to reflect her bathing habits, it makes the bar especiallly creamy and indulgent. This, together with the gentle French clay that gives this bar the lovely colour, makes this bar a bathing treat.
Please be aware that this soap is now made in our big beautful squares rather than the rounds pictured here, that's changing shortly!

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Egyptian House Blend
This bar is my favourite soap of all-time. It is absolutely gorgeous and I just love its creamy texture. It lasts and it lasts - it doesn't do that thing of melting completely in the shower! A truly fabulous product.
