We are starting it! We are making the commitment to the best year ever 2015. To start off the year on a positive note we have started our blog. A place to share what is going on with us and Soap Orchard. Hopefully you enjoy seeing what we are creating in the shop, learning about the benefits of our natural ingredients and having a place for your comments and suggestions – all in one place. So with no further ado, we’d like to start with a topic near to our hearts… Cabernet Wine for Valentine’s Day.
Cabernet a l’Orange Soap –
This soap was inspired by the wonderful Cabernet wines and olive oils we get from Solvang in the California Santa Ynez Valley. Next time you are in the valley take a Stagecoach wine tour and try the wonderful wines there from some of the best. Bella Cavalli, Stanford and Gainey just to name a few. You wont be disappointed!
We specially handcrafted our Cabernet wine soap using wine and olive oils from the Santa Ynez vineyards and of course orange peels from our local growers.
The Cabernet a l’Orange Soap is full of wonderful essential and carrier oils and you will enjoy all of the skin benefits associated to them;
- Orange Essential Oil and peel which have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It helps relax muscles and its scent is wonderful at alleviating anxiety, anger and depression.
- Grape Seed Oil is extracted from the seeds of the grapes used to make wine. It is unscented and is wonderful for sensitive skin. It has a high absorption rate and does not leave your skin oily. Wonderful for people with allergies to other types of moisturizers.
Along with the amazing skin benefits of the essential oils you will get to enjoy the abundance of antioxidants wine brings to the skin!
*antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage may lead to cancer.
