It is important to not only list everything that is used , but why!
Organic Ingredients of:
Rosehip Oil - Rosehips are thought to have more vitamin C than an orange or lemon and Vitamin C has antioxidant properties. Research has also shown that vitamin C may help reduce ultraviolet light damage caused by free radicals and may increase wound healing and help prevent dry skin. It also contains Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, and K. Rose Hip Oil is also known for its exceptional regenerative and healing properties.
Organic Calendula Oil - Can sooth inflammation, and promote healing which helps to relieve dryness and flaking skin. Calendula Oil also contains natural antiseptic properties.
Organic Chamomile Oil - Is known for easing skin conditions like eczema, rashes and dermatitis. A 2019 study also showed that cancer cells were more likely to die when they were treated with the extract. A 2015 study diluted chamomile essential oil to the skin for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Of course, a young child would not suffer with this condition but its nice to know that the oils chosen to use in our recipe contain many benefits for the skin!
Organic Calendula Flowers - Contain antifungal and antimicrobial properties that help prevent infection and heal injuries to body tissues. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components. It is often used to help skin that is exhibiting signs of tenderness, redness, or inflammation.

Essential Oil of Sweet Orange OIl - Is found to have antimicrobial properties. A 2012 study looked at what effect orange essential oil might have on E. coli that can cause food poisoning and bladder infections. Results showed that after 24 hours, a 1 percent, or lower, concentration of orange essential oil actually inhibited the bacteria at refrigeration temperatures. The same was found with other bacterial organisms.
This soap is not "tearless". If it was it would not be a true soap, so like any other soap it may sting should it get into eyes. You may also want to do a skin test on the ankle and foot to make sure there are no allergic reactions of any kind. All ingredients used should not cause any adverse reaction but everyone's skin is different.
