Let's Keep it Clean!

Handcrafted vegetable glycerin soap bars made in small batches in rural Perthshire, Scotland

Glycerin soaps are considered to be one of the most moisturizing types of soap. Glycerin is a vegetable-derived humectant which attracts moisture from the air to your skin and keeps it locked in. Unlike some soaps that dry your skin out and make it feel tight and even flaky, glycerin soap keeps your skin feeling more hydrated for several hours after you use it.

With incredible fragrances and skin-softening ingredients like olive oil they’re effective, great for your skin, and great for the environment, too. Why not give them a try?

Goodbye Summer!

I’m often asked what my favourite soap is, which is a really difficult question to answer because there’s so much to choose from. There’s everything from fruity, sugary scents to spicy, muskier fragrances and I like to mix and match literally depending on my mood and the weather!

As the temperature drops and the days shorten, it seems natural to seek out scents that are warm and comforting and my preference switches from sunny citrus fragrances towards something a little cosier. Think of uplifting florals, sensuous spices, and warm woody notes.

Vanilla, fig, cedarwood and pomegranate can all add a sense of comfort and the spicy aromas of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper provide a feeling of warmth.

However, there are no rules for seasonal scents and anything goes – stick with tropical fruits if that sparks joy or stay with a sea-inspired scent to extend the summer vibes a little longer!
