This body soap is rich in organic ingredients, including the Ose-Dudu, “Black Soap” found in West Africa. Infused with a mixture of Palm Kernel Oil and Activated Charcoal, this soap is great for toxin absorption and skin clearing. The small-batch processing creates individual soaps, unique and ingredient heavy.
Ose-Dudu: The African black soap, is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. This miracle soap is full of vitamins and minerals, and free of fragrance, animal products and chemicals. Used to fade dark spots, as an anti-fungal and antiseptic, even out skin tone and eliminating blemishes and acne. It begins with kettle roasting the sun-dried leaves and bark at an even, constant temperature, which is important to ensure color, texture and smell. Then water and various oils are added to the mixture and stirred for at least a day. After that, the compound is left to set for two weeks to cure. Different tribes and communities have adopted their own specific blend of oils and cooking techniques, which can be seen in the different color variations among black soap.
Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Ose-dudu (Black Soap), Glycerin, Sodium Palmate, Palm Kernel Oil, Sorbital, Shea Butter, Activated Charcoal, Palm Acid and other pure essential oils for scent. Avoid contact with eye areas.
Made in the USA.
Palo Santo, or 'holy wood', is a mystical tree native to South America. It's closely related to Frankincense, Myrrh and Copal. Palo Santo is often burned during ceremonies by Shamans for its energetically cleansing and healing properties. It is said to enhance creativity and bring good fortune. It creates a calming, fresh smell reminiscent of smoke with hints of mint and citrus that work well in keeping away mosquitoes and other flying insects.
Use a candle, match or lighter to ignite your stick of Palo Santo. Hold at about a 45 degree angle pointing the tip down toward the flame. Allow it to burn for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then blow out.
1 bundle contains 4 sticks of Palo Santo.
