Phoenicia - ancient coastal city with a storied past. And also some of the first people to cultivate massive quantities of lavender. And it wasn't strictly a male or female thing. EVERYONE used it. They used it to relax and create calmness. They used to induce sleepiness. It was used in Roman baths, hence it's common name - lavare, to wash (in Latin). They even buried their dead in cloths drenched in lavender water. Cultures all over the world use it for different things. I think it works especially well in a soap.

I am currently growing lavender in my home garden to add to this bar.

For Phoenicia I have created my own scent with essential oils of lavender and a touch of patchouli to round it out. The moisturizing effects of the combination of coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, sunflower oil and avocado oil create a wonderfully mild, yet cleansing soap.

The only other ingredients besides the above listed are rainwater and lye. These two things combined with the oils create soap. There is no lye present in my finished bars of soap. Just pure moisturizing soap.

Average size for this bar is 6 ounces.

This is a fairly hard bar of soap and you will get your money's worth if allowed to dry out between uses.
