Our Gardener’s Square Bar is literally THE soap that started it all in 2013! Christine, the owner of and creator behind HD Soap by Hilltop Designs, bought a glycerin soap base and added fresh herbs from her garden. She sold those bars to friends and family, reinvested the proceeds into making more soap, and the rest is history!
This square bar is made from our amazing olive oil glycerin base, along with the powerful herbs basil, oregano, and parsley. You might have read all about olive oil in our recent post, but how much do you know about the benefits of these herbs?
Basil is a powerful cleanser, which is good news if you have oily skin or blemishes; it will help eliminate dirt and clogged pores! This herb is also soothing and calming, especially if you have itchy skin. A lot of herbs are packed with antioxidants, and basil is no exception! Antioxidants protect your skin and help fight the environmental stressors that cause wrinkles and the signs of aging. Basil can also help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles under your eyes!
Oregano has been used for thousands of years for both cooking and medicinal purposes. In addition to containing many antioxidants, this herb also is believed to have antibacterial properties. Because of this, oregano is frequently used to fight tricky skin issues, such as an itchy, flaky scalp or blemishes. As with basil, oregano also helps reduce inflammation.
Parsley is frequently overlooked and underappreciated! This herb is believed to be anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, which is why it has been historically popular for medicinal purposes. High in antioxidants and vitamin C, this herb also fights the aging process and repairs your skin. It also may reduce puffiness, dark circles, and even age spots! Parsley helps prevent breakouts by balancing the oil levels in your skin, which makes it a great soap to try if you have acne-prone skin.
With the power of these three herbs contained in a single bar, the Gardener’s soap can help you enjoy healthy, clear, glowing skin! We have several customers who rave about this soap and swear by it for their skin; hopefully you will fall in love with it too!
