Our handwoven blankets are quickly becoming the go-to gift for Indigo customers. Made by the same fine weavers who make our towels, our blankets and throws are cozy, comfy and made with natural fibers.
When you find something that works, why change it? We imagine that is why Turkish olive oil soaps are made today just as they were centuries ago. That is also the reason we have offered traditional olive oil soaps since we opened our doors more than 18 years ago. It is as soap should be - simple, gentle, nourishing and natural. Our soap maker is pictured below.
The Process The soap making process takes nine months which begins with the harvest of local olives and bay laurel berries in the late fall. The cold-pressed olive oil is heated and saponified in a large cauldron for several days. The bay laurel oil is added at the end of the heating process, and the mixture is then poured into large frames on the ground. After the mixture hardens, the soap is cut with wooden rakes. Each bar is then stacked and aged up to six months. The result is an all natural bar of one of the best soaps in the world.
Uses We love it next to our kitchen sink, in the bath, as a solid shampoo bar and in the laundry room.
Turkish olive and laurel soap is ideal as an everyday soap in the shower or bath. It is especially suited for those with sensitive skin, skin issues or dry skin.
Laurel Content The relative percentage of bay laurel oil determines the quality and cost of the soap. This bar contains 40% laurel oil.
Ingredients Saponified olive oil, bay laurel oil (40%), water and sea salt
