Our Hand-milled Joyful Soap is all natural, vegan friendly, cruelty free, and handcrafted with our organic coconut milk soap with ground organic rosehip powder for great natural color and skin care with a blend of therapeutic grade essential oils for a scent that is a personal favorite! One of my favorites for helping with poison ivy too... seems like no year of gardening goes without at least one round of it!
Ingredients: Handmilled with handmade organic coconut milk soap (saponified organic palm oil, organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic palm kernel oil, organic coconut milk (organic coconut milk, organic guar gum), organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter and organic castor oil) plus therapeutic grade essential oils [bergamot (citrus bergamia), ylang ylang (cananga odorata), geranium (pelargonium graveolens), rosewood (aniba rosaeodora), lemon (citrus limon), mandarin (citrus reticulata), jasmine (jasminum officinale), roman chamomile (chamaemelum nobile), palmarosa (cymbopogon martinii), and rose (rosa damascena)] and organic rosehip powder.
Each bar comes with a parchment paper label (ingredients are listed on the back of label) and also a heat seal band around the center to hold the label in place. Average weight of each bar is approximately 4 ounces, and the average size is about 2.25" x 3.25" x 1.25" thick. (Sizes and weights are approximate.) This listing is for one bar of soap, additional bars in photograph are to show texture.
Our handcrafted, all natural, vegan friendly soaps are a labor of love from start to finish! We do not use a pre-made soap base -- we always make our own soaps from scratch! Organic vegetable oils, butters and coconut milk combine to create a cold process soap that is thoughtfully formulated to be gentle and good for your skin. This unscented soap lathers well in hard and soft water and also hand-mills beautifully! Plus they have great texture and hardness – not slimy like some all-vegetable bars. Then, this soap is grated by hand and re-melted, or hand-milled (also called rebatched), to create one of our many varieties of soap. While we have many unscented varieties, we also have many varieties that are gently scented with premium quality therapeutic grade essential oils and/or organic herbs and spices, for great color, scent and texture. Our hand-milled soaps are dried for at least three weeks before being offered for sale. The end result is a wonderful bar of handcrafted all natural soap that is harder and longer lasting than handmade soap that has not been hand-milled. (As with all handmade soaps, they are best kept dry between uses and a soap dish that drains away excess water works best.) Our process takes a lot more time, but we think you will agree they are some of the best bars of soap you will ever use and with so many varieties to choose from, the hardest decision is usually which ones to try first!
Since 2008, Sunnybrook Gardens Ltd has been joyfully handcrafting many varieties of all natural soaps, skin care, gifts and favors. Our products are vegan friendly and cruelty free, with many unscented and gently scented varieties available. Gently scented products are often handcrafted using premium quality therapeutic grade essential oils to retain plant benefits as well as beautiful scent. We also love flowers and grow hundreds of different varieties of daylilies with many state-inspected plants available for local pick up every year!
