The historic use and recognition of Lavender as the most versatile therapeutic botanical essence dates to its use in ancient times by the Egyptians, Phoenicians and the people of Arabia as perfume. Lavender, first cultivated by the Arabians, is thought to have spread across Europe from the Greek Hyeres Islands.

In keeping with our African culture, Nubian Heritage shea butter soap is made from the highest quality shea butter blended with lavender and wild flowers for extr askin softening and mild exfoliation of dead skin cells.
