The Herbaria product line recently released a natural Citronella and Marigold bar — an old-fashioned lye soap bar considered great for shampooing and shaving.  It also contains essential oils and other ingredients that are known to repel insects.  These ingredients include:  citronella essential oil, lemongrass and lemon eucalyptus.  Lemon eucalyptus is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as an effective repellant.  The bar also contains other oils known for their repellant properties, among others.  These include:  lavender, basil, thyme, patchouli and catnip essential oil, which is ten times stronger than DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide).  The complete list of ingredients for the Citronella and Marigold is as follows:

olive oil and/or rice bran oil, palm kernel oil and soy oil
catnip essential oil
citronella essential oil
hemp seed oil
lavender essential oil
lemon eucalyptus oil
lemongrass essential oil
marigold flowers
patchouli essential oil
sweet basil essential oil
thyme essential oil

Herbaria also released an all-new Frankincense and Myrrh bar.  The two fragrances have been used for more than 5,000 years.  Frankincense is derived from a resin of the Boswellia carterii tree, and the myrrh is a resin from the Commifora myrrha tree.  According to Herbaria “Finely ground Rhassoul clay, from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, is marbled into this bar to provide a mineral-rich toner.  Shea butter, also from Africa, moisturizes and protects your skin.”

Homeopathic literature claims that Frankincense is believed to be spiritually healing and calming, as well as skin-regenerative, antiseptic, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory.  Some believe that it also has antidepressant qualities.  Frankincense can be helpful for the respiratory system for coughs, bronchitis, colds and flu.  Frankincense and Myrrh includes:

saponified olive oil and/or rice bran oil, palm kernel oil and soy oil
frankincense essential oil
myrrh essential oil
rhassoul clay
shea butter
