LEMONGRASS SAGE SOAP
ABOUT THE SOAP
The lemongrass is the main scent you get in this soap. But the clary sage (not to be confused with cooking sage) gives it a nice green “bite” to the smell. Finely sifted lemongrass herb added. Bright golden yellow color. Equal fav for men and women. The lemongrass sage soap has been one of our top 5 sellers for almost ten years.

THE SOAP STORY
The lemongrass sage soap was partly based on a recipe given to me by another soap maker. Although, she wouldn’t tell me the exact ratio for lemongrass against the clary sage. With a little experimentation, we came up with a really great smelling soap!
