Reaching into the heart of this region, we pull out Tagetes Lucida, commonly known as Mexican Mint Marigold. This beautiful plant has long been admired for its medicinal qualities as well as its exotic aroma. This bar features locally micro-distilled Mexican Mint Marigold essential oil along side several other complementary aromas and is topped with African marigold seeds from Old Factory’s garden. This soap is made with the spirit of the season where the light is pure, and the dark is purifying.
“Cloud plant, as this herb is known in Mexico, was first documented there in the sixteenth century by Spanish explorers. According to legend, the ancient Aztec chieftains used a powder made from the aromatic leaves of mint marigold to calm the hapless victims of sacrificial rituals. The leaves have also been used medicinally in folk remedies for malaria, colic, and colds; a poultice of the leaves is a traditional treatment for rattlesnake bite.” – Mother Earth Living.
