Patchouli Hand Repair Soap

Patchouli Hand Repair Soap


Patchouli Soap is always one of our most requested soaps, so Patchouli lovers relax, we've got your Patchouli Soap!

For many centuries the strong earthy scent of Patchouli has been used as a perfume, and as aromatherapy for its relaxing and meditative effects, often enjoyed in pungent incense. Patchouli is also reputed to be an aphrodisiac, which is probably why so many people grew to love Patchouli during the Free Love '60s! Patchouli Soap is good for dry, itchy skin, especially in our shea butter soap recipe.

Patchouli Hand Repair Soap is our shea butter and cocoa butter hand soap to moisturize dry hands.

We originally created our Appalachian Crafters' Hand Repair soap for a mountain basketweaver, whose hands were dry, nicked with cuts, and sore at the end of each long day of crafting. No ointments or lotions could be used for protection or healing because her hands had to be perfectly clean to handle crafting materials the next day.

Our Appalachian Crafters' Hand Repair Soaps are made with Shea and Cocoa Butters, Comfrey-infused Olive Oil, and medicinal herbs of Nettles, St. John's Wort, Marshmallow and others traditionally used to promote healing. All Crafters' bars are colored some shade of green by the Comfrey leaves, and flecks of ground herbs can be seen throughout most bars.

 
Ingredients Olive, Coconut, Palm and Castor Oils, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye), Mountain Spring Water, ground medicinal herbs, Patchouli Essential Oil.

More Information About Patchouli

Patchouli is an herb, a fragrant herb with egg-shaped leaves and square stems. The scent of Patchouli is sweet, spicy, and woodsy all at the same time. Other words used to describe Patchouli include pungent, mossy, and musty. Patchouli is often used as a low note in perfumes and aromatherapy blends, anchoring the other scents, and mixing or blending to enhance the scents with which it is combined.

Growing Patchouli

Patchouli can grow 2 to 3 feet in height. The leaves of the Patchouli herb give off the characteristic Patchouli scent when rubbed. Patchouli does bloom, with white colored flowers tinged with purple. If Patchouli is being grown for a purpose, it can be cut 2 to 3 times a year, providing 2 to 3 crops that can be dried for later use.
