Natural Soaps from Wales (90gm) - Nettle & Oatmeal
From Really Wild Soap in St Davids.
This soap offers a pleasant, effective exfoliating texture which also helps to moisturise skin. Nettle is anti-inflammatory, astringent, anti-bacterial, healing, mildly deodorant and stimulating. It is excellent for treating eczema and other itchy skin conditions and can be used as a natural deep cleanser, especially useful for oily skin. Oatmeal is used in skincare as it contains saponins which have intense cleansing properties.
The young nettle tops are collected locally, early in the spring, just taking the top six or so leaves and drying them so that we can use them throughout the year.
The oatmeal is produced at Y Felin (Welsh for ‘The Mill’), at St Dogmaels, one of the last working water mills in Wales.
