Cabin - black pepper and lavender. All natural body and face soap with black walnut, coconut milk and sprinkled with peppercorns. Handmade in Lake Arrowhead, California using the cold process method, the traditional way of making soap. Lavender is an evergreen shrub of the mint family that has bluish-purple flowers. It has been widely used in perfumery and medicine since ancient times. Besides smelling wonderful, lavender has numerous benefits for the mind and body. They include the following:

Black pepper has many health benefits. It is a natural antiseptic and antioxidant. It is antibacterial. It is an effective antispasmodic and gives relief to cramps, muscles pulls and spasms. It is warming, stimulating and improves circulation.
Each soap comes wrapped in a label, stamped with my sparrow logo and the ingredients listed on the back. I strive to practice sustainability as a maker and small business owner to protect our natural environment and human health. A few ways I do that is by using 100% recycled and 100% post-consumer waste kraft paper for my labels. After I cut my soap into bars, I use the leftover ends for samples and guest soaps so none is wasted. Also, I use sustainable palm oil in my soap, which helps to reduce deforestation and poverty in palm oil-producing countries.
Olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, cocoa butter, distilled water, coconut milk, lavender essential oil, black pepper essential oil, black walnut powder, and peppercorns.
(Note: After the soap has saponified or "cured," the final product no longer contains harmful lye.)

I make my soap in batches and because they are cut by hand, they vary slightly in weight and size.
