My Dad (a.k.a. Pop Pops) is an amazingly caring and loving man. He has always taken care of his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids whenever any of us needed him, still does. I named this soap Gpa’s Rub Some Dirt On It because when any of us would (and still do) get minor bumps or scrapes he would always jokingly tell us to “rub some dirt on it” as if that would heal everything. It still makes me giggle to hear him say that.
There is no actual “dirt” in these 5 to 6 ounce bars, but rather, bentonite clay…clay is dirt, right?…and thin veins of activated charcoal. Both have been added to this soap for a very gentle exfoliating and they are said to help remove toxins. There is also lavender, tea tree and frankincense essential oils all of which have antibacterial properties. I can’t say this soap will heal wounds but it’s soap…so essential oils or not…it will clean and moisturize.
The scent is slightly floral but mostly herbal and earthy, the tea tree oil is the star here. There are no colorants added, just the natural colors of the bentonite clay, activated charcoal and hemp seed oil.
