Ilang-Ilang Organic Soap

from 6.00

This is a certified handmade organic soap.  It brings to you the sweet summer orange with a touch of ilang ilang for a floral citrus treat. Also contains ground apricot seeds for exfoliation and organic aloe for skin softening and smoothing effect.

Trivia!

The Ylang-Ylang tree is native in the Philippines and parts of Indonesia. Already in ancient time Ylang-Ylang flowers have been used - often together with Sampaguita flowers (description of plant: here) for decorative fragrant arrangements and bouquets. Sometimes the flowers served also as defence of bad spirits. It is less known that the Philippines before the first World War had a monopoly on the production of the oil. It was a F. Steck (1858 -- 1880), a German pharmacist, who produced the first time a high-quality Ylang-Ylang oil on a commercial basis with the help of distillation equipment imported from Germany. The European perfume industry of the ending 19th century (Victorian epoch) was an interested buyer of the oil, which was used particularly as Macassar oil in the context of hair care and skin care.
