Scottish Bog Myrtle Soap 140g
Made with bog myrtle essential oils collected by hand and distilled at The Highland Soap Company's workshop in a beautiful copper still.
We believe we are the only soap maker in the UK to be using real bog myrtle essential oils rather than an artificial fragrance. Unable to buy the bog myrtle essential oils we needed for one of our most popular ranges, we started to distil our own. It takes an hour to produce a few millilitres and making this wonder-soap is a labour of love. Scottish herbalists have long valued the wonderful antibacterial properties of bog myrtle leaves (sometimes referred to as Scotland's Tea Tree). The plant thrives in Scottish Highland peat bogs, alongside rivers and on the edge of our lochs.
Bog myrtle essential oil is also reputed to be extremely useful for sensitive skin and acne, as well as helping to delay skin-ageing. We have been told that people use our bog myrtle range to treat their psoriasis and other skin conditions. This moisturising soap has a lovely fresh herbal, lemony scent and is also used to protect against midges.
