So Relaxing: Made From Earth Lavender Calm Soap


Full disclosure: Made From Earth provided me with a free bar of soap to try and review. Had I not liked the soap, no review would have been written.

I have a weakness for soaps. And I have a weakness for a good lavender. Finding a good organic soap has gotten easier in the past few years, but finding a good lavender is still hit and miss. Some lavender products smell like old lady laundry, some hardly have any lavender smell at all. Neither of those things are particularly relaxing. But a good lavender can help you start your day off right - nice and relaxed before you go to work and all hell breaks loose.

With the Lavender Calm Soap, Made From Earth has struck that sweet spot - a good quality soap with a fragrant lavender smell. When it comes to lather, I don't know which I dislike more in a soap - a poor lather that makes me spend way too long trying to move it around or a lather that leaves a film. The main ingredient of the soap is saponified coconut oil, so it lathers up into a thick, moisturizing foam that rinses off cleanly. As for the rest of the ingredients - they are simply there to provide the fragrance. Isn't that nice? A basic soap that cleans the grime of the day off your body without using any unnecessary chemicals. It's sad that it's a rare thing, but it really is.

As for the fragrance, I'm a big advocate of everyone having at least one good lavender product in their cosmetic bag. We all deal with stress in some form or another and lavender is one of the most common and effective scents used for relaxation. Lavender soap is an easy way to get an extra dose of relaxation in the morning. The day just goes so much easier if you start off right. The Lavender Calm Soap has a good, strong scent without being overpowering.

My final verdict: I will definitely buy this soap in the future. At $6.50 for a high-quality bar that lasts a little longer than a month, it's a good deal. You can buy the soap directly from the Made From Earth website. Happy lathering!
