This is my take on the traditional Savon De Marseille soaps which are huge chunk of soap intended to be left on the counter and just rubbed to pick up soap, rather than picking it up and using it the way you would a traditional bar of soap. By law, the Savon de Marseille has to have at least 72% olive oil, so that is what I use as well, with the balance made up of coconut oil. I tell you... there is beauty in simplicity! For the French, this soap is used for everything, from hand washing, to spot removal, to dish washing, etc. You get the picture.
I now have 2 versions of this soap. The original is called French Field.- It gets its light green color from a hint of french green clay and it is very lightly scented with a beautiful essential oil blend (lavender, rosewood, lemon, eucalyptus, litsea cubeba, geranium, and palmarosa)
The newest one is called French Meadow and is a purple-ish brown with an awesome essential oil blend (rosemary, orange, lavender, eucalyptus, amyris, patchouli, peppermint, ginger, litsea cubeba, clary sage, and ylang ylang).
These soaps are a hefty 12 ounces at least and will probably last for years. I like to put them on a tumbled marble tile that has rubber "feet" to protect delicate surfaces, but the soap is also available "naked". I also sell the soap tiles separately.
