Lavender tea is made from locally harvested sprigs, and then honey is mixed in too, just before saponification. Honey is incredibly healing, reducing blemishes and scarring over time. Lavender reduces the effects of nervous tension in body and mind, facilitating rest and recovery. This soap was designed to be healing for people with sensitive or damaged skin.

This is special because...
A BIPOC-owned micro-business, ALTR creates hand-made bar soap with local, wildcrafted botanicals. Maker/owners Amina and Joe seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase local plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are grown or responsibly wildcrafted by ALTR and then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
