Earl Grey soap bar
Earl Grey is one of the most recognised teas in the western world. This quintessentially British tea is typically a black tea base flavoured with oil from the rind of the amazingly fragrant bergamot orange, a citrus fruit mostly grown in Italy with the appearance and flavour somewhere between an orange and a lemon with a little grapefruit and lime thrown in.
Experts say that when the unique Bergamot oil is used in aromatherapy preparations it has the ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxiety levels and lessening stress. Along with this powerful calming effect, it is also purifying and cleansing for the skin.
