This bar was pitched by a friend who loves to swim and was looking for something with Tea Tree essential oil. We'd asked her why Tea Tree? And she prompted that she wanted it for it's anti-fungal properties. We've consulted our compendium of herbs and get started on the soap pot for a soap with a combination of herbs and essential oils that's great for the skin but bad for fungi. And whatdaya know, Patchouli has great anti-fungal properties as well. You don't have to be fungal-prone to use this as we are just so in luurrrve with Patchouli and yes... we can bath in it now!
