Patchouli oil has something of a bad rep, but it's such a heady and full oil with so many beneficial properties that it's a shame to just dump it in the Hippy Bin and leave it behind. So we livened it up with lavender to soften some of the harder woody notes and added vanilla to take the edge off the dryness of it - it really works. Patchouli lovers like it because it gives it a new, modern twist and the haters can't believe how much they like it. The idea for this came from a visit to Morocco where the smells of the souks hit you all as one, so the spice we've coloured it with reflects that, we've used ground paprika to give it those firey, earthy tones.

Product Testimonials Handmade Soap - Lavender, Patchouli & Vanilla
Thank you for adding this to my order in December as a "Thank you" . I just started using it in May (the seaweed soap lasted that long) and it's brilliant. Seems to be the best one yet for my skin.
Thanks for letting us know Jillian - and that the soap lasts that long, that is literally the best thing you can say to a soap maker :) - The Pure Nuff Stuff Team
