Pine Forest Soap
Love to be in the woods? This soap will remind you of the great outdoors. The pine needles harvested from our own woods are infused into the olive oil and remaining needles are dried and added to the soap as an exfoliant.
For centuries, Native American tribes used all parts of a pine tree for medicinal purposes. The Abanaki, Iroquois, Micmac, Mohegan and Shinnecock tribes used a bark decoction for coughs and colds. The Algonquins used bark as a poultice for colds and the Chippewas used it for cuts and wounds. The Delaware and Ontario people made a pitch pine drawing salve.
Connecticut has the White Pine, a shorter scruffier tree than its western cousin the Ponderosa. Today, pine needles and bark are harvested and dried for use in teas, tinctures and infused oils. Pine resin is the golden jewel of the tree due to its incredible healing properties. White Pine has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, expectorant, diuretic, antibacterial, stimulant, antispasmodic and astringent properties.
Ingredients: Infused pine olive oil, coconut oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, fresh local goat’s milk, dried pine needles, essential oil.
