We are very proud to introduce a new product for Christmas 2016 our Gardeners & Cooks soap.   Customers were asking for a soap that was both citrus and exfoliant, and so here it is!

The soap is still very gentle on skin using our traditional and fully natural/organic soap base of organic olive oil, coconut, palm (sustainable) and sunflower oils.  It is a hard cake of soap with a soft lather, which lasts and lasts and doesn’t turn into jelly (unless left sitting in water of course).  It contains essential oils of lemon and lime, which are excellent for using in a kitchen environment, as well as the bathroom.  They provide a refreshing, cleansing fragrance and are reputed to have disinfectant and antiseptic properties.

The other ingredients are Scottish honey and oatmeal.  We are using a heather honey, that is produced from hives, situated in the hills in our own village of Finzean, Aberdeenshire, Scotland to ensure the purest honey from our own local bees.  In the soap,  honey is a wonderful addition, that provides an additional moisturising and soothing properties, as well as being full of antioxidants.

The organic oatmeal is also local to Aberdeenshire, it is from The Oatmeal of Alford and is produced at Montgarrie Mill.  In the soap it provides a gentle exfoliant effect, which we thought was ideal for all the gardeners and cooks out there who need to look after their hands.

The Gardeners and Cooks soap make a great present at Christmas and all year round.  It comes in a 90g bar £4.60 and a 45g bar £2.85.

All our soaps now come in new packaging which we are launching along with the Gardeners & Cooks Soap.  We hope that you will all like it.  The packaging is now fully biodegradable but still keeps your soap nice and fresh inside – a perfect combination.

You can also choose from our other soaps – Geranium & Rose Petal, Orange & Frankincense, Meditation, Love, Peppermint & Peppermint Leaf, Rose Heaven & Lavender & Lavender Flower.
