Bohemian Silk Bar
Earthy notes combine with citrus and floral in this grounding hand-made soap which contains a high percentage of extra virgin olive oil and tussar silk. Scented with essential oils of sweet orange, orange blossom, and patchouli.
Patchouli has a history as a scent of choice for hippies and bohemians. Over the past few years it has been a feature in high end colognes and perfumes. We love it, and if you are feeling the need to bring out your alternative side, give it a try. It combines particularly well with the freshness and perfume of orange.

The ingredients list is a list of the INCI (scientific) names for each of the saponified ingredients in our soap, as required by law. We aren't allowed to simply put "olive oil, shea butter, castor oil" etc!
Each bar of soap has been cured for a minimum of six weeks. Over this time there is some shrinkage through evaporation. Your bar will weigh at least 80g as per the label, although it could be more (the bars start off at anywhere between 95 and 105g before curing).
Occasionally there may be a powdery off-white deposit on the top surface of the bar, this is known as soda ash, and is nothing to worry about.
We wrap our soap in wildcrafted, handmade Fairtrade Lokta paper, from Nepal. This enables them to breath and you can smell the soap too.
We don't colour our soaps but the hues do vary, due to the particular combination of natural ingredients and essential oils.
Our soaps are individuals; just like you!
