‘Heeling’ foot balm – lemon mint – 25g
‘Heeling’ foot balm – lemon mint – 25g

Life can be tough for our heels and they are often sadly neglected, becoming dry and cracked.  Fortunately, help is at hand in this little pot of salvation.  Rich in fabulous kokum butter (known for its ability to heal and regenerate damaged skin while leaving a clean and fresh finish) it is combined with cocoa butter and sweet almond, virgin coconut and virgin hemp oils and a delicious blend of lemon, peppermint and tea tree essential oils which bring antioxidants, antiseptic qualities and a cooling and uplifting fragrance.

Apply sparingly with clean dry fingers to the affected area morning and night.  This balm is very firm but will soften on contact with skin.  This may be used in other dry patches on the body/hands, but has been especially formulated for foot use.

Discontinue if irritation occurs.  Store away from heat and direct sunlight. Due to the nature of the raw butters used, these balms are occasionally affected by graininess; this is due to the formation of natural stearic acid crystals which will not affect efficacy of the product in any way - the crystals will melt on contact with the skin.

Two sizes available - 25g and 50g.

Sale! Anubis
Anubis
With cold pressed hemp seed oil, raw shea butter, conditioning rice bran oil and a subtle but masculine/unisex aroma blend that includes howood, sandalwood, bergamot, vetiver, cinnamon and amyris essential oils. It also boasts detoxifying charcoal, creamy coconut milk and sea salt for gentle exfoliation. NB As this current batch of Anubis contains a very small percentage of fragrance oil (an error on behalf of the ingredient supplier and beyond our control) it no longer fits in with our ‘natural aromas’ policy.  However, as it still meets our high standards in every other way, we have decided to offer it at a reduced price. The next batch of Anubis will, once more, only contain essential oils for its aroma.   There are two options for packaging.  Please choose from: Basic packaging: The soap bar has a cigar band label with full ingredient details and is packed in a compostable glassine bag Gift box packaging: The soap bar is wrapped in a translucent vellum sleeve with a handmade paper band and tied with a fine satin ribbon.  It nestles in fine ivory shredded paper in our bespoke ivory ribbon-pull matchbox-style gift box.  Except for the ribbon, all packaging is recyclable.

Athena
Athena
'Athena' is our version of a Castille soap: a true Castille is made with olive oil alone; 'Athena' includes a tiny amount of castor oil as well to help boost the lather (traditional Castille soap lather being very thin). Added to these two oils is lashings of soothing goatmilk and pure lavender essential oil. The colour comes from natural botanical macerates of alkanet and madder root in olive oil and it has a beautiful patina of pale ash (naturally formed and commonly found on soaps with a high lavender content).  The ash will gradually wash away as the soap is used. And that's it. The result, our most gentle soap. As is the case with a true Castille, this one needs at least 9 months to cure fully, otherwise the lather can be 'slimy'. As we want to make sure it is as perfect as can be, we add the additional three months to make it a full year before offering it for sale. The name comes from the Greek goddess, Athena, who, in her wisdom, gave the gift of the olive tree to the people of Athens. There are two options for packaging.  Please choose one of the options from the drop down list further down the page: Basic packaging: The soap bar has a cigar band label with full ingredient details and is packed in a compostable glassine bag Gift box packaging: The soap bar is wrapped in a translucent vellum sleeve with a handmade paper band and tied with a fine satin ribbon.  It nestles in fine ivory shredded paper in our bespoke ivory ribbon-pull matchbox-style gift box.  Except for the ribbon, all packaging is recyclable.
