Essential Spirit has been making superior handmade soap for 20 years, long before it became popular to do so. Marina’s original motivation was to make superior and luxurious handmade soap using the finest aromatherapy graded essential oils in the traditional cold process method, which retains the goodness and nutrients of the oils used. Marina has fully achieved her goal and using this genuine handmade procedure, has created a nourishing, cleansing bar with a rich, creamy lather that leaves the skin feeling moisturised and well cared for. With Marina’s extensive experience working with essential oils, she has created some outstanding and original fragrant combinations in the soap range and also in our skincare, massage and candle ranges.

There is nothing in the soap which isn’t beneficial – no colourants or synthetics. The base is mostly extra virgin olive oil which creates the most nourishing soap available. The base also has nutrient rich hemp oil (full of healthy omega oils) together with coconut and caster oils and is fragranced with the purest essential oils. This produces a truly enriching soap of the highest quality.

They have gone from using green, clean, sustainable palm to now producing palm free soap. Although palm is an important and versatile raw material and has the highest yield per hectare than any oilseed crop, there are environmental pressures on its rapid expansion in eco-sensitive areas. There has long been a movement towards producing palm in a sustainable manner based on economic social and environmental viability, but it is an industry yet to be free from controversy. This made it an easy decision for them to move towards palm free which has been replaced with even more olive oil…more conditioning, more lather and more goodness.

None of their products or ingredients have been tested on animals and they have a fixed cut-off date of 1990 – this is the only way to ensure cruelty free products. All their products are vegetarian (and mostly vegan), sustainable and traceable to source.

Finally, each bar of soap is wrapped in colourful and dynamic fair trade handmade paper so it makes a lovely gift to buy someone special too.
