Surely you've heard of therapeutic mud baths.....but did you know bog or moor peat isextraordinarily nutrient-rich and excellent for the skin, especially for eczema and acne? One of the main curative effects of peat is the heat effect when warmed-up peat expands. 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! We've scented this bar with an earthy-tangy scent blend of lime and patchouli essential oils. (Patchouli is pricey these days so elevates the soap cost). We order our peat directly from Transylvania, and I must say, our shipment delivery guy is highly suspicious of what I am ordering from TRANSYLVANIA!
