Lavender soap and a very good cause

lavender_soap

Making soap using lye and natural oils is simple and produces a bar of soap that will effectively kill almost all bacteria, and is just as effective as antibacterial soap. One of my closest friends Ilyena is currently living in a small village in Uganda and working at the Engeye clinic, where she is starting a project to improve community sanitation by teaching soap-making using traditional methods. Meanwhile in St Andrews I have started making soap again and am selling it to raise money for her project. Currently I have vegan lavender soap which I made using olive, (RSPO certified sustainable) palm oil and coconut oil. It is £2.50 per bar, with the profits going directly to Ilyena’s soap project. If you’re in the St Andrews area and are interested in buying some, please email theconsciousstudent@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you. If you’re living further afield and are still interested, I will do my best to post it!

p.s. if you’re interested in making soap, here is a beginners’ guide.
