It’s a Girl Thing

I know this blog gets posts few and far between.  The reason for this is 1.  I have been incredibaly busy and 2. I was waiting for my new supplies to come in.  The other day they came and it resulted in a quick soap making session.

It’s a Girl Thing is a Hemp Oil MP soap that is uncolored and scented with some carefully selected essential oils.  These oils all help in that wonderful monthly girl time.

I chose clary sage, lavender, and litsea essential oils.  If you are into that sort of thing (I am but I recognize that not everybody is) here is some information on each one.

Clary Sage: is well known for its balancing properties. Used in PMS blends, it is reputed to help with menopause and menstrual cramps. Properties: Antibacterial, antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, astringent, carminative, deodorant, digestive, emmenagogue, euphoric, hypotensive, nervine, sedative, stomachic, vulnerary.

Lavender: is known for its skin healing properties and its use as a sedative. Properties: Analgesic, antibacterial, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antirheumatic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aromatic, carminative, cholagogue, deodorant, diuretic, emmenagogue, hypotensive, insecticide, nervine, sedative, stimulant, stomachic, vulnerary

Litsea: Used for a Lemon, or a base note in more elusive citrus notes like Orange, this is a lovely, uplifting essential oil. It can also be used to treat acne or put into face products for oily skin. Properties: Antibiotic, antidepressant, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, deodorant, digestive, insecticidal, sedative, stimulant, stomachic, vulnerary

Now do I think this lovely soap will cure PMS…no.  But do I think when showering with it, it can cause you to relax and possibly feel a little better.  Yes, but then again I am an essential oil believer.
