This Pine & Eucalyptus Infused Castilian Soap Bar was handcrafted in Hot Springs , Arkansas.
After spending over a month on the coast of Texas, it felt like a breath of fresh air seeing the wooded pines of Arkansas, Hot Springs.
We Harvested some Pine Needles, which I turned into an infused tea.
Once it cooled down, I was ready to make some soap. I added Pure Eucalyptus Essential Oil to give you the experience of “Deep Breathing”.

“Whole Body Focused”
It’s not enough to just clean your body.
I want you to have a Whole Body Experience when you take a shower, wash your hair, or even just your hands.
I want you to pause and allow the Passive diffusion of the soap to hit your senses, ignite your brains receptors and alter your atmosphere.
Everything should be intentional.
Even the simple soap bar we put on our body.
There are many myths on how personal care products effect and penetrate into our skin. A quick search on the matter will leave you confused and unsure of whos giving you the facts. Unfortunately, there aren’t many regulations in the beauty industry at all, especially around marketing language, so brands can kind of say whatever they want. So how can we be sure are products are safe?
Dr Chan Yung, a dermatologist at Apex Dermatology Institute in Tsim Sha Tsui, States:
” Since some chemicals can enter your bloodstream through topical application, its best to avoid products that contain harmful ingredients such as parabens, SLS, a preservative called methylisothiazolinone, and heavy metals, My advice is to read the label when buying your skin care products – even organic or ‘chemical-free’ ones. Such descriptions may sound appealing, but some of these products may contain harmful preservatives.”
Common Toxins Found in your everyday Soap Bar
Sodium Laureth Sulfate-carcinogenic nitrosamine – SLS is linked to skin irritations and allergic reactions, like eczematous dermatitis, leaving sensitive skin damaged and irritated
Triclosan -in low doses, can impact thyroid hormone concentrations, disrupting the endocrine system. It is also classified as a skin, eye, and lung irritant.
1,4 Dioxane– known eye and respiratory tract irritant that readily penetrates the skin.
Parabens – they have a tendency to mimic hormones, which can be found to disrupt the function of hormones naturally found in your body.
Ureas- releases formaldehyde – which is a known human carcinogen, human respiratory toxicant, skin irritant and an environmental toxin.
With chemicals as toxic as these, I’d look twice at that soap label next time.
