Don't Be Afraid to Get Those Hands Dirty

Green  Earth Gardener's Soap 4.5 ounces

This soap represents a trinity of qualities perfect for use on hardworking hands. First off, our olive oil enriched soap provides a nourishing foundation for the three herbal essential oils (Rosemary,Peppermint and Clary Sage) that clean and freshen; while lastly a bit of pumice and rice hulls perform the function of gently scrubbing away tough dirt.

Green Earth Gardner’s Soap is the perfect soap for ceramicists, gardeners, mechanics and others who need a soap that gently scrubs away tough dirt and grime while leaving hands smelling clean and fresh. So don’t be afraid to dig in and get those hands dirty!

Why rice hulls? * "More than 1000,000,000 metric tons of rice hulls are generated each year throughout the world." Rice hulls are an agricultural waste product available in abundance(sometimes for free)making them a perfect cost efficient and environmentally friendly scrubby for a working hands soap. I also like the textural/visual quality it gives the soap(they are the brown specks you see here and there.)

I love the things you make.

Now I want me some rice hulls.

Amy Warden said...

Seriously! Rice hulls? Sounds like the perfect scrubby. Did you have to grind them up, or did they come already pulverized?

Tierra Verde Handmade Soap said...

@Briny-yes, do get some. They are inexpensive and I really love them.

@Amy- I do find them a bit big so I just barely grind them in a coffee grinder(that I use for soapy additives only.)
