I have never been a fan of sodium laurel sulfates or any of the derivatives of chemically produced soap. When in search for a direct source of Shea Butter, produced in west Africa, I found in so doing that black soap kept coming up. Once finding a reputable, fair trade company, they sent me a pound of black soap. They said that it was approximately 48% shea butter and the saponifier was that of a palm oil and plantain ash variety. I thought I’d give it try. Wow, not bad but a little gritty and definitely dirty. This soap, like shea butter is handmade by women’s cooperatives, usually in crude outdoor areas. In the earlier years I would find shea butter shells, twigs and rocks mixed inside. I would double sometimes triple strain the material to purify it.
The Sacred Soap is intended to cleanse without stripping the skin’s delicate balance as it leaves you refreshed.
Using both local and far harvested botanicals made into hydrosols, along with the right amount of essential oils, the Sacred Soap offers the perfect balance of cleanse and moisture.
I do not formulate for aroma, but for effect, however, as often happens we get many users addicted to the smell, many convinced it has ginger in it, which it does not.
It’s a thinner soap, as we do not use emulsifiers to bind it, I believe this is one of the purest soaps on the market and that uses NO lye!

Benedetta's Seaweed Bath combines three therapies for the ultimate wellness experience. Our bath combines the effects of Balneotherapy (bathing in water hot enough to be therapeutic), Thalassotherapy (therapy from the sea) and the power of Aromatherapeutics, (essential oils medicines).
Seaweeds are known thyroid tonics and aid the natural processes of the body. We use a micronized blend of combined seaweed powders with a therapeutic dose of our essential oils, developed to alkalize and bring the system into balance as it gently detoxifies. This powerful, luxurious treatment will leave your skin feeling silky smooth, and your body relaxed and rejuvenated. The Seaweed Bath is a life-changing experience that can help shorten the duration of illness or eliminate it all together when taken at the first signs of ill health.

I have spent many hours in the ocean, waiting for waves, or just walking along the shore feeling the sand, seaweed, and water beneath my feet. The ocean has a revitalizing effect on us without question. Taking up 70% of our planet, we have a symbiotic cord with all that it has to offer.
Hot springs have their own therapeutic qualities through mineral absorption and heat. I have visited many and find their cleansing, detoxifying ability invaluable.
Comprising a bath that possessed all the elements of both these therapies and natural wonders was the end goal in the development of the Seaweed Bath. I wanted an alternative to what was being offered. As a long time user of seaweeds, and with knowledge of their curative and restorative effects on radiation, the development of a bath to harness such properties was imminent.
As an aromatherapist, I wanted to assist the continuation of therapeutic release with an essential oil blend-- Not just any essential oil blend, but one that would rival any “scented” bath salt by using a therapeutic dose.
The Benedetta Seaweed Bath was developed and launched in 2000. Comprised of two therapies, dosed separately.
1. Micronized Sea Vegetables - Composed of several seaweeds.
2. Organic & Biodynamic Essential Oil Blend.
This incredible, rejuvenating preparation is a must in every bathroom. This Life-Changing Seaweed Bath is invaluable during cold and flu season to ward off, or shorten the duration of, illness. Aches and pains are diminished, and balance is restored with consistent use. Taken in hot water weekly or daily to rejuvenate.

Does this spray contain the minimum 60% alcohol necessary for hand sanitizers to be effective? Does it contain echinacea or tea tree oil? I would like to try this spray, but I can't use it if it contains either of these. Thanks very much!
Hi! Yes, it contains more than 60% alcohol and is very effective. Our essential oil blend is proprietary, so we cannot specifiy if those essential oils are in there. Sorry!
