Oatmeal + Lavender = The Perfect Marriage
Oatmeal. Often thought of as a comfort food or ingredient in cookies, is also one of the most soothing and nurturing ingredients in our small-batch, handcrafted soaps and body care products.
Oatmeal provides an excellent, natural texture that is gentle to the skin and exfoliating at the same time. The steel cut organic oats that we use provides a wonderful texture to the bar soaps that will gently exfoliate dry, dull skin.
In addition to the exfoliating properties, oatmeal is also one of nature’s best moisturizers. The natural plant properties that we enjoy from eating oatmeal are also beneficial when using oatmeal for body care. Oatmeal contains phenols which reduce inflammation and can help soothe dry, irritated skin. In addition, oatmeal’s beneficial pH helps soothe and protect your skin.
Who knew that those little bumps of goodness in your morning oatmeal that warm your tummy in the cold months could be so beneficial to the outside of your body too?
Lavender. Deliciously scented, beautiful little flowers that pack a punch for natural skin and body products. The Latin name for lavender is Lavare, which means to wash.
More than likely, lavender got its name because of the clean and distinct aroma.
If you have ever brushed up against a lavender shrub, you know how fragrant and beautiful the natural oils are. The fragrance of lavender is often associated with relaxation.
The oils of the lavender plant have been used for thousands of years to make perfumes and body care products. Beyond the beautiful aroma, the benefits of lavender oils are many. In our Lotsa Lavender + Oatmeal bar soap, we use undiluted lavender essential oils to provide more than just a beautiful fragrance.
Lavender has natural antibacterial properties and has been shown to soothe irritated skin. Because the fragrance is so calming, many sleep aid products from lotions to candles use lavender to help increase relaxation.
Oatmeal + Lavender. When we combine the elements of oatmeal + lavender in our soaps, we are layering in the soothing goodness that is sought after in body care products.
When you first unwrap a bar of the Lotsa Lavender + Oatmeal soap, you will first notice the amazing aroma. Breathe deeply as the lavender essential oil infused soap gives forth its amazing fragrance.
Each first time you use the soap, you will be bathed in a nourishing lather and soothing fragrance. Aside from the absolutely amazing texture and feel, the other natural ingredients in the soap will also provide amazing cleansing and moisturizing benefits. This soap is suitable for all skin types. Great for sensitive, irritated or dry skin, too.
As if oatmeal and lavender weren’t enough to make this soap a must have, take a look at the other natural ingredients in the product:
- A nourishing blend of olive, coconut and palm oils.
- Organic botanicals and mineral oxides
- Purified water
And finally, our products are carefully made in small batches.
It ain’t just soap.
