Savon De Marseille soap

These big blocks of hard milled olive oil soap have been crafted since the Middle Ages in the South of France. A delicate mixture of olive oil, alkaline ash from sea plants and Mediterranean sea salt are mixed and heated for ten days in antique cauldrons. Then they are cut into cubes and set in the sun to dry. Well known for their gentle and ultra moisturizing properties, they have been a Pear Tree favorite since the day we first opened our doors.

*colors will vary in shades from light beige to dark green depending on the olive oil.
