Lemongrass Oil Benefits
The lemongrass plant can be steam distilled into a wonderfully uplifting essential oil that can be used to make handmade soap. The aromatherapy benefits of lemongrass oil are unsurpassed and have been shown to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.
As a professional soap maker and a medical doctor, my passion is to educate and inspire people to use natural skincare products for overall health and well-being.
Lemongrass is a tropical, grassy plant that is used in cooking, herbal medicine, and personal care products. At Dr. Bessette Naturals we believe “what you put on your skin should be like what you eat”. It should be wholesome, natural, and chemical-free. Lemongrass products fit that category as they come directly from nature.

Does papaya soap work? That is the question.
There are naturally occurring enzymes in papaya fruit called papains. These papain enzymes break down proteins and are believed to help exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal brighter skin.
There are claims all over the internet describing the skin benefits of papaya soap including skin whitening and brightening, but there is little scientific evidence to support these claims. At best, the effects are very subtle if used over a long period of time and most of the data is anecdotal coming from individual experiences. To be honest, most of the skin benefits of papaya soap are probably coming from the moisturizing effects of the soap, especially if that made with olive oil and cocoa butter.
