minty

Back in June, when I went to the Wealden Times Midsummer Fair, I bought a bar of 'Moroccan Mint' soap from Bohemia and Flower. All their soap is handmade in small batches using organic ingredients, then wrapped in brown paper stamped with their logo. Simple and stylish.


I swing between using a bar of soap in the shower, or Dr Bronner's liquid soap in eucalyptus. I like natural herby scents, though I usually find peppermint too strong. The moroccan mint soap uses spearmint essential oil, not peppermint, and is fresh and invigorating without being overpowering. I love it. Their soap base uses organic coconut, sunflower and olive oils, and they don't use palm oil which is a huge plus in my book.


As my bar slowly disappeared with use, I knew I would replace it. My three new bars will keep me going for a while. Bohemia and Flower's online shop has just launched, so you can try some for yourself.

Oooh, great link, thank you. I bought a bar of handmade soap at a fair back in MArhc and it is wearing away far more gradually than rubbish mass produed stuff. Smells far better too!

I absolutely love products like this, they certainly are simple and stylish. In fact they look good enough to eat and I can practically smell them now. Thanks for the link Diana, I'm definitely going to check them out.

Have a lovely weekend.

That sounds like the perfect soap! Got to love that. Those small things go a long way towards every day happiness.

They look wonderful - I love spearmint as opposed to peppermint. May have to treat myself.

Although I'm not sure I'd want to unwrap them!

I adore hand made soaps and can just imagine the lovely invigorating minty smell!!! The site has some lovely soaps on there. I had a look at the Dr Bronner's site too. Where do you purchase Dr Bronner's in the UK Diana (if you don't mind me asking)! x
