Dragon's Blood is a popular incense fragrance based on a natural resin. In the end, the Dragon's Blood resin is expensive and difficult to extract the aroma from, so many synthetic fragrances are popular on the market. This Dragon's Blood Soap is all natural, created from eo's and natural raw materials to create a close rendition to many synthetic Dragon's Blood fragrances on the market: Earthy incense notes, sweet notes of orange, sandalwood, cedarwood, and patchouli rounded off with light notes of rose in the backdrop.

Why do we use the oils we use in soaps? What are the benefits?
Olive Oil: A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap.
Sunflower Oil: Very similar to olive with a lighter/cleaner feel to it. The skin feels oh so nice when sunflower is used.
Shea Butter: Makes a creamier bar with a more "moisturized feel". With sensitive skin, reduced lather can be a good thing, so shea butter can be a real assistant, but in the end this has to be "in balance" with the rest of the soap.
Organic Palm: When we use palm, we use organic "sustainable" palm, for the reasons of deforestation in tropical regions (see below for further explanation). Palm and similar, are pretty much necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is appealing to the population majority.
Coconut: One word... Lather. Coconut adds to hardness and creates "big bubbles" in soap. A little goes a long way, too much can be "too effective".
Hemp: We use unrefined hemp to avoid chemical contamination possible in the refining process. It also gives a nice natural aroma to the soap. Hemp oil adds a unique skin feel and moisturizing effect.
