A really different and useful soap bar.

It has a familiar, herby smell that you can’t quite put your finger on – that’ll be the basil – and is great at helping to remove nasty kitchen odours – that’ll be the Fair Trade coffee grounds.

Throw in some antioxidant rich tomato powder and skin-softening shea butter, and you’ve got yourself a perfect kitchen soap.

Did you know?
Basil essential oil naturally has antimicrobial properties.

SIZE: Each soap bar measures approximately 10 x 5.5 x 2.5 cms.
WEIGHT: Each soap bar weighs at least 115 grams.

Being handmade and truly natural, our soaps vary a little in size and colour from bar to bar and batch to batch.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I can’t recommend this soap highly enough. It’s scrubby texture is great at removing cooking smells, gardening dirt and even products such as paint from your hands yet it’s not harsh on your skin and has such a nice scent too. Now we’ve discovered this soap, it’ll be the only one we use in the kitchen from now on.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    I have been doing a lot of painting and decorating recently and I recommend this soap for removing paint from your hands. Also removes the smell of white spirit/paintbrush cleaner and leaves your hands smelling sweet and feeling soft.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    This soap is brilliant at removing cooking smells such as onion or garlic, it’s not drying to your skin and the scrubby nature of the soap will remove tough dirt like paint or car oil. If you cook, do DIY or just like the colour then buy this soap.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5


    Received a trial bar of this previously and used it in the kitchen before and after cooking. Does exactly as described. Now added to my regulars (list is getting longer!!!)

  5. Rated 5 out of 5


    I love cooking and now this love can extend to the washing up phase – no matter what is on my hands – and I’m a messy cook – this soap delightfully washes it away, leaving my hands beautifully soft and wonderfully scented.
