fairtrade soap dish: neem wood
India has high praise for the benefits of the Neem tree. Its leafy crown often provides shade from sweltering heat. For centuries, extracts from its seeds served as treatment for such ailments as leprosy, and its bark treated such diseases as malaria.
The wood has a rich red colour and heady aroma. In India the leaves of the neem tree are used to discourge insects in the home.
Our wooden items are produced in collaboration with a fair trade artisan organisation based in india. Helping to provide income for communities and ensures traditional artisan skills are passed down to the next generation.
We recommend using our wooden items for storing your Dirt Creative soap. Using wood to store soap will prevent it losing its beneficial properties. The Dirt Creative soap dish will also return to the earth if disposed of.
