Hi there

Mrs Lamp picked up some hand-made soap in January whilst we were wondering around Global Village, and loved it! It was from Syria (well, so we were told), made from olive oil, and was sold in stamped, hand-cut blocks.

The soap has just run out, and of course Global Village has just closed.

A quick google check, and I think this is Aleppo Soap.

Does anyone know anywhere that I can get this now that Global Village has closed?

Thanks, Lamp

You can get it at Union Co-op Safa Park branch.

Glad to hear harmony has been maintained (restored?) on the household front :)

I really think I might try this! Not heard of it before but have a child with exzema and another who really reacts to mosquito bites, its worth a try!! Thanks for sharing :)
Definitely worth a try: a niece of mine back home was badly affected by eczema and none of the lotions, pills or creams prescribed by doctors seemed to work. She tried this soap on a visit here and now swears by it :)

the Union Co-op will probably sell more of the soap than normal...I'm going to give it a go too if there's any left.

Just make sure you do a test patch on your skin before submerging:
" The EU has banned the use of laurel oil as a cosmetic ingredient, by its 76/768/EWG directive. Laurel oil is suspected to provoke allergic reactions in certain cases. "
