Tea Tree Oil is one of the strongest natural antiseptics known to man. It deeply penetrates skin, which explains its ability to sooth and relieve a large array of skin problems such as shingles, eczema and psoriasis, poison ivy, boils, cuts, insect bites, acne and minor burns, as an insect repellent... Tea Tree oil has been examined by scientists and found to have nearly neutral pH - perfect for use on human and animal skin and to help control fleas. Pure Tea Tree oil is non-toxic.
Aborigine is 6% tea tree oil with the added tea tree leaves, plantain and dandelion root herbal infusions. We recommend you soap-up and let the lather sit on your skin 2-3 minutes before rinsing to gain full effects of these wondrous botanicals!
African Black Magic
Originally created by the village women of Ghana and the West Coast of Africa; traditional 'Black Soap Powder' is created of burned palm leaves which are added to cocoa pod husks, burned plantain skins, African honey and virgin African shea butter made into a paste. The soap is always unscented. The finished soap is reknown for helping to heal lesions and alleviating many skin irritations and conditions.
Bog or moor peat is extraordinarily nutrient-rich and excellent for the skin, especially for eczema and acne. This was long-ago discovered by the people in the Transylvanian region of Romania where peat bogs are abundant. Peat-effects consist of overall warming of the body and the organic-minerals help open pores and draw out impurities, decongesting skin for better blood flow and texture. Best to lather up and let the suds remain on your skin awhile before rinsing. This bar is scented with an earthy-tangy scent blend of lime and patchouli essential oils We order our peat directly from Transylvania.
An ancient scent recipe recreated from Egyptian hieroglyphics off the actual walls of the temple of Idfu where the most famous of all Kyphi incense was made, and also found on Egyptian papyri.

Over 14 natural ingredients make up this fragrant bouquet including frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, cassia & more. A TOTAL Egyptian experience!

Combining both with a refreshing herbal scent blend of lemon verbena, rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils; excellent for problem oily or congested skin.
