Soaps

Our soaps are hand-made by our herbalist. Most of the soaps are unscented, because that is what our customers said they prefer. However, if you want custom made soaps, added scents, etc. let us know.
NOTE: You cannot make soap without lye. If it doesn’t use lye, it isn’t soap. Soap is made by the chemical reaction between an acid (fats) and an alkali (lye). Chemically speaking this causes the creation of a salt. Much like table salt, soap is more than the sum of it’s parts. Table salt is sodium chloride. Sodium on it’s own could be harmful, becoming sodium hydroxid (aka lye or caustic soda) if mixed with water. Together as salt they are important for human health.

Gardeners Soap


A blend of Olive oil, Tea Seed oil, and castor oil, with French Green clay and Pumice. No added colours, preservatives, or fragrances. It lathers nicely and cleans some of the more difficult to get off stuff. Suitable for the mechanics in the family too.

Real liquid Castile Soap

Castile soap is, by definition, a mixture of olive oil and lye. Even in the health food stores this is not easy to find. At Amber Leaf Wellness, we make it ourselves.
