An Uplifting and Invigorating Soap
We have infused our Eucalyptus Herbal Soap with Eucalyptus and Peppermint for its sedative and refreshing properties that decongest skin, clean impurities from the pores, leaving clean skin, and refreshed.
As someone who grew up with a wise grandmother in the farms of Puerto Rico, it is impossible for me to smell eucalyptus without conjuring up images of the hills behind my grandmother's wooden house, or the scent of herbs in my grandmother's medicine cabinet.
Childhood scents and special memories
This slightly sweet, intensely menthol scent in this soap will forever remind me of an alcolado that my grandmother used to rubbed me down to relieve cold symptoms. Then she used to make an affirmation that said;
"Sino te sanas hoy, te sanarás mañana" which means "If you don't heal today you will heal tomorrow"
Comforting! I always use this affirmation on my family when they are sick with flu or allergies.
What is Alcolado?
It’s part of our Puerto Rican culture!
Alcolado or Bay Rum is a blend of alcohol and natural extracts such as bay rum, menthol and eucalyptus. It is used locally to relieve fever, muscle aches, insect bites and more.
Eucalyptus Herbal Soap isn’t for everyday but it’s your friend during cold and flu season. The smallest of sniffs during the shower will sent its minty-camphor scent through your nose and sinuses and deep into your lungs. It practically pushes its way through, making it perfect for when you’re feeling fed up with being stuffed up.
Eucalyptus Herbal Soap is cleansing with creamy bubbly but most importantly, it helps to refresh and open airways. Not only that, but by washing with it, some of that scent will stay with you through the day, working to keep you feeling your best for a lot longer.
