This mornings shower brought the Magpie Hill Soap ‘Juniperberry & Sage’ Soap out of its box for the first time, I know from experience that Rhian consistently produces good products and again that proved to be true.
I am actually quite stumped when it comes to describing the scent. It has that wonderful herby scent but almost has a pine and peppery scent at times.
Juniperberry is actually a good choice for me. It is said to help with rheumatism and arthritic joints and has antiseptic properties. Sage is also very good in treating illness. It is good for the nervous system and fatigue and so really this is the perfect soap for me.
As with all the Magpie Hill Soaps it is made in Rhian’s workshop and is made from scratch, there’s no shortcuts here.
The soap produces a lovely lather and as I always say, that is harder to produce in the hard Essex water. The lather is milky and abundant and the soap leaves you feeling clean and fresh and my skin is left feeling soft which I like….. what an old tart I am !!
I also used the soap on my beard and I was really impressed with the result.
I have sensitive skin, I get dry patches behind my ears that can get quite sore, but since ditching the mass-produced shower gels, it has calmed right down. We call it progress with all these gels and lotions and yet the old ways using natural ingredients are far better for us.
Best of all, the Magpie Hill Soap ‘Juniperberry & Sage’ Soap costs only £4 and comes in a lovely box that makes it ideal for a gift. You can purchase the soaps from the Magpie Hill Soap website and also from the sister company Balbo Beard Co.
