Orange Patchouli Artisan Soap
"Patchouli has always been a part of my fragrance, like a line through my life."
~ Julia Roberts
Orange Patchouli is our Newest scent of Sweet Oranges with hints of Patchouli. Classic Scent but not overpowering.
We use a classic soap making method called Cold Process. This locks in all the natural glycerin and all the nutrients from the oils we use, so your skin gets all the benefit. We don’t use any animal fats in our soaps. No parabens, no phthalates, no alcohols. Just great quality soaps handmade the old-fashioned way. And we don’t skimp on the good stuff.
Our soaps are handmade, hand cut and hand packaged with loose bath herbs. The herbs included with this soap is Blue Cornflower. Each bar is approximately 4.8 oz, but some variation is to be expected.
We only use whole ingredients, nutrient dense oils and the cold process method. This generations-old way of soap making is tried and true. The cold process method locks in all of the natural glycerin and your skin will thank you for it.
Our soap base includes:
Coconut Oil - very hydrating and nourishing. Great for dry skin and minor skin conditions
Organic Olive Oil - great for maintaining skin and hair health. Rich in Vitamin E and A.
Organic Sunflower Oil - a great source of vitamin E, rich in nutrients and antioxidants, and is effective for combating skincare issues like acne, inflammation, general redness and irritation of the skin. Sunflower oil has emollient properties that help the skin retain its moisture.
Organic Soybean oil-rich in vitamin E, a nutrient that can help promote skin health. May protect against inflammation and help the skin retain moisture.
Organic Shea Butter-High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal soap ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Our soaps cure for a minimum of 4-6 weeks to create a firm and long-lasting bar of soap. Our soaps don't have any stabilizers or preservatives. So it's best to keep your soap out of the stream of water. A draining soap dish works well. You can also cut your hefty bar of soap in half to extend the life even longer. Store soaps in a dry place.

Magickal Properties of Patchouli
Patchouli is most often used in love, lust and fertility magic, although it’s also a powerful money attractor. Use a few drops of oil in your spells, or if you can, grow a patchouli plant (probably indoors, unless you live in a warmer climate) to take advantage of the fresh herb.
Often patchouli is used in fertility magick. While I think most people tend to use this in relation to physical fertility, I use it for fertility of ideas and creativity. Fertility doesn’t always have to be linked to child bearing. There are many, many people who choose not to have children, and the magickal properties of patchouli work wonderfully for them too. One simply has to broaden ones ideas of what fertility is and relates to. In my opinion, anything that you want to grow could benefit from some patchouli magick.
