Yuzu Soap

Two posts in one day :-)

<-Here is the Yuzu Soap all fresh out of the oven. It smells heavenly and looks oh so wonderful.
Yuzu fruit has a dry, tangy almost floral note (scent).
"Used in aromatherapy, Yuzu is said to have a refreshing and uplighting effect on the body whilst calming the mind. The oil is said to have a powerful anti-bacterial which makes it effective against colds and flu, which would account for its popularity and success in Japanese folk medicine.
The oil is also said to be effective for stress, burn-out, nervous tension or anxiety, where it brings soothing and calming effect to the emotions. Likewise it gives upliftment to depressive states, frustration, regret and helps to build confidence."
The ingredients in this batch of soap are: Saponified Coconut oil, Palm oil, Olive Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Shea Butter and Castor Oil (<-humectant) with retained glycerin and some skin soothing oatmeal blended in for winter skin.

My local readers can find this lovely soap at the shop after Saturday.
