Well – what a month it has been with the predicted April showers dispersed with blasts of sunshine and few rainbows.
As we find our own way of managing the COVID19 crisis and taking every opportunity to wash our hands there have been plenty of rainbows to help us through and this made me think does the colour of the soap we wash with effect our mood?
I am sure over the last few weeks you have picked up lots of handwash and maybe traditional bars of soap on your limited shopping trips. Have you noticed how many colours of soap there are and ever though what is in the product?
Glitter to Botanicals
I noticed there is just about every colour and hue available in the shops for liquid soaps, lots of bottles with glitter and floating balls- did you succumb?. I am not sure that they are any better for washing in however it may encourage the children to wash more?
We do use colours in our handmade soaps, however they are all derived from natural ingredients and botanicals.
So our mini soap rainbow is made up from:
Red – Rose petals on our Vanilla & Rose bar
Orange pieces on our Orange & Cinnamon
Yellow on our Lemon & Poppyseed
Green in our Peppermint
Blue – how we feel when we run out of stock!
Indigo – Patchouli
Violet – Cardamon & Lime
So when this social distancing is over and you meet us at one of our events let us know which soap of the rainbow is your favourite.
