The benefits of Lavender
Lavender is one of the most versatile essential oils and it is highly regarded for it’s wonderful skincare properties. An indispensable part of any beauty cabinet and first aid kit, it is our go to oil for replenishing tired skin and promoting skin health and vitality. Cleansing and calming, lavender brings comfort and restores balance. Lavender comes from the Latin word ‘Lavare’ which means ‘to wash’. The Romans used lavender extensively for cleansing and skincare.
Palm Free Soap
Most soaps are made with palm oil because it is cheap and readily available. According to the World Wildlife Fund, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour to make way for palm oil production. The demand for cheap palm oil results in vast deforestation – trees are cleared to make way for mass palm tree plantations to fulfil the requirements of the palm oil industry. Many baby Orangutans are left orphaned and suffer burns and skin problems as a result of the forest fires (the fires are started to destroy forest to make way for palm plantations). Choosing palm free soaps is a forest and orangutan friendly alternative.
