Fifield Road Apothecary is a line of wonderfully healing, scented soaps, handmade in small batches in the Cotswolds. All of the soaps are made from plant-based ingredients and beautifully scented with pure essential oils, giving each bar a complex and aromatic scent. Super fatted at 5%, FRA soaps are extremely gentle on your skin.
Leslie Astor began making soaps in 2010. After living in New York City for many years, it was a move to the English countryside that inspired her discovery of the natural healing powers of the plants and flowers found in the surrounding fields and hedgerows. Her passion for herbal alchemy grew and, after several years of tinkering and refining her recipes, she opened Fifield Road Apothecary in 2018.
Every aspect in the making of Fifield Road Apothecary soaps is thoughtfully and artistically done, making them a lovely treat to yourself or as a gift.
* Patchouli & Frankincense with Dark Cocoa Powder
This soap is a blend of the warming, rich and woody essential oils of patchouli, frankincense and lavender. Skin-loving shea and cocoa butters make it a rich and creamy bar, able to soothe even the driest skin.
* Cedarwood, Bergamot & Red Sandalwood
This gently exfoliating bar has a woodsy, slightly smokey aroma and rich lather thanks to nourishing castor oil. California red sandalwood powder provides its wonderful deep purple hue. Popular with men, this is suitable for all skin types.
* Ylang Ylang & Vetiver with Pink French Clay
Richly floral and feminine, the pink French clay in this bar reduces irritation and inflammation while hydrating the skin. Essential fatty acids - including myristic, palmitic, and ricinoleic - provide anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and cleansing properites. Wonderful for mature skin.
* Peppermint & Rosemary with Indigo Root Powder
Creamy and energizing, this soap has top notes of stimulating peppermint, followed by a hint of warming rosemary. Peppermint’s anti-inflammatory properties help to sooth irritated skin, while ground Moroccan indigo gives this soap its striking blue color. A perfect soap for your morning shower!
* Lavender & May Chang with Green Tea and Nettle
Packed with anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and astringent powers, this soap is infused with a blend of green tea, wild nettle and olive oil. Shea and mango butters make it emollient and cleansing, while may chang lends a citrusy, floral scent. Lavender rounds out the recipe, providing a calming aroma. Dried, crushed nettles provide gentle exfoliation. Excellent for dry, irritated or eczema- prone skin.
* Lemon & Grapefruit with Yellow French Clay
An uplifting, citrusy bar, scented with lemon, grapefruit, sweet orange and may chang essential oils. Yellow French clay gives it an excellent slip, making it good for shaving. Yellow clay also gently draws oil and impurities out of the skin, while releasing minerals back into it. Good for all skin types.
* Bergamot & Clary Sage with French Green Clay
A blend of five skin-loving oils and butters - including olive oil, cocoa seed butter, and hemp seed oil - make this bar rich in oleic acid, a highly emollient fatty acid with anti-oxidant properties. Its clean and citrusy scent comes from bergamot and clary sage. French green clay helps absorb excess oil without drying the skin. Great for oily or combination skin.
* Spike Lavender, Vetiver & Alkanet Root
This soap is loaded with shea butter and olive oil, making it creamy and nourishing for your skin. Spike lavender and woodsy vetiver create a light scent and alkanet root give the bar a beautiful, pale purple tone. It is a hard, sudsy bar with fantastic lather, thanks to the addition of castor oil.
