So since I have been in soap making mode, I thought it would be nice for my son’s valentines day party, to send handmade all natural heart soaps for the children. Okay, so I did put a piece of heart candy in the valentine bag as well. I actually just grabbed the silicone mold in the seasonal isle of Walmart. I used a base for my soap from Brambleberry. I love healing solutions Geranium essential oil . For the natural colorant, I used beet root powder. I have found that Denver Spice company usually has the best prices for natural herb colorants.
Geranium essential oil has many health benefits to it. Geranium is said to be anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. Geranium can improve skin and hair health, it speeds up wound healing and aids in skin regeneration. Geranium can also support adrenal, reduce allergies, and act as an insect repellent.
Beet root powder has it’s own benefits as well. It contains high levels of important vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. It is rich in iron, potassium, magnesium, A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, calcium, copper, phosphorous, sodium, iodine, boron, soluble and insoluble fiber. It has been used to support healthy digestive, liver and spleen function.
Well, here ya have it! The finished product. I don’t think a class of kindergarteners will be able to appreciate the fact the soap is all-natural, or that the soap has a lot of nourishing ingredients in it, but I will at least have the satisfaction knowing they will be using a quality product. Hopefully they will at least appreciate the fun heart shapes and the fact there is also a piece of candy involved! Happy Valentines day.
