Get “the wild spirit of the rainforest,” says Wembé about their handmade soaps. Each soap is crafted using plants native to Paraguay. The company sells 15 varieties of the Wembé soaps, ranging in price from $7.00 for the Coconut Exfoliating Blend to $10.85 for the Black Clay Exfoliating Blend.

I tested the Yerba Mate exfoliating blend, Green Blue River exfoliating blend, and White Rose cleansing blend. They all smelled beautiful and instantly softened my hands.

Plus, they’re natural and made from organic ingredients. None of the soaps contain silicone, petroleum products, parabens, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances and dyes.

The soaps’ outer packagings were so pretty, I didn’t want to open them at first. When I did, I found one of the most unique products I’ve ever seen. The interesting swirls of color make the soaps look like they came directly from the rainforest. Since they’re natural and handmade, they all vary in shape and size, though the standard weight is 3.75 ounces.

The Yerba Mate soap is vegan and rich in antioxidants. It contains essential oils, exotic weeds, and crushed yerba mate leaves. Plus, its ability to exfoliate the leftover winter dryness from my hands will make it an Iowa essential for the upcoming December and January months. The cost of the Yerba Mate bar is $9.45 for 3.75 ounces.

Another scrub, the Green Blue River soap has a layer of sand on the bottom for exfoliating dry skin, while the top of the bar contains essential oils. Again, this bar costs $9.45 for 3.75 ounces. This is a unique bar combination that worked well for removing dry skin cells.

The White Rose cleansing blend contains real rose petals and essential oils. At $9.70 for 3.75 ounces, this isn’t something I would use for everyday cleansing. But the smell is heavenly, and it left my skin feeling soft and supple.

I immediately purchased my first soap dish to display the pretty White Rose soap on my bathroom sink. It leaves a light aroma that constantly scents my bathroom. I don’t think I can ever go back to using liquid soap from the aisles of the supermarket now that I’ve experienced Wembé soaps.

It’s easy to place an order for Wembé soaps from the company’s website, but be forewarned that you’ll need to order a minimum of three bars at a time. You’ll also pay shipping on your purchase.

Can’t make up your mind about which soaps to order? Try the Wembé Variety Pack, with 12 different soaps for $70 plus shipping.
