Natural Soaps Make Wonderful Gifts

Guest Author - Samantha Jackson

A great gift idea for any occasion is natural soap. Soap is used by every household everyday and as a gift you can rest assured that it won't find its way to the bottom drawer or upper shelf of the closet.

Natural soaps are often considered a luxury that a large number of individuals refuse to purchase themselves, but they often have a secret desire to have them. So, make that purchase and pamper them. The following list includes several of the more popular types of natural soaps.

Handmade Soap - Soap that is handmade or handcrafted is available in virtually any shape, fragrance or color you can comprehend, and some you can't. These master crafters put their imagination and creativity to the test with a variety of layering, designs and ornamental molds.

So, take a look around and make your selection, but be sure to read the label so you are positive the soap contains natural or holistic ingredients. Vegan soaps are also available and consist of plant-based glycerin instead of an animal-based foundation. So, if your selection is for a vegan be sure to check this one highly important factor.

For a soap that is truly considered natural, look for organic compounds that carry the organic certification. The certification indicates the product is free of pesticides or toxic man-made chemicals.

Oatmeal Soap - Versatile and hypoallergenic, oatmeal soap is wonderful at exfoliating dead skin cells and absorbing excess oil. The benefits of oatmeal soap are numerous and include sunburn and skin irritation relief, inflammation reduction, calms rashes and, as an exfoliate, assists with blackhead removal.

For individuals with sensitive skin oatmeal combined with honey is an excellent combination. A number of oatmeal soaps contain a fragrance, so if this may be an issue select a product that has been noted to be free of oils or fragrance.

Honey Soap - Honey is one of nature's wonder foods that has been utilized for beauty and medicinal purposes throughout the ages. Not only does it supply the body with a variety of necessary nutrients it is also a wonderful and nourishing skincare product.

Known for its moisturizing and antimicrobial properties, honey is effective in treating dry skin and blemishes along with a number of other external and internal conditions. Anyone who appreciates the luxury of specialized gifts will appreciate all the attributes honey soap has to offer.

Soap of Goat's Milk - Soap comprised of goat's milk contains exfoliating and moisturizing agents and while it may sound a little bit strange, there is little that will compare to this luxurious soap.

Typically, goats are raised on small farms rather than the larger factory farms of cow owners. Raised on a smaller scale, their milk usually has a natural foundation, is chemical free and full of the vitamins and nutrients our skin needs. Their milk also contains an ingredient known as casein. This ingredient is easy for the skin to absorb which makes it smooth and soft feeling.

Think about picking up some natural soaps the next time you're in your local health food or outdoor store. They usually have them in baskets or on display near the register. You may find you love them too much to give away as gifts!
