Lavender Body Products

From Holy Cross Monastery

Lavender: the relaxing fragrance for stressed-out souls. The monks searched high and low to find the most floral of all lavender essential oils to make their soaps and lotions. The lotion is a balanced blend of oils (grape seed, avocado & jojoba), Shea butter, aloe, vitamins, glycerin and other skin-softening ingredients. Both soaps are olive-oil based -- liquid soap also includes lanolin; bar soap contains both lavender oil and flowers, plus goat milk. Soap in 8-oz. pump bottles and 3-oz. bars. Lotion in 8-oz pump or 4-oz. flip-top bottles.

Holy Cross Monastery: Wayne, West Virginia

is an English-speaking monastery under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in the Diocese of Eastern America & New York.

Holy Cross is a growing monastery consisting of more than two dozen monks, novices, candidates and lay workers, many of them converts to the Orthodox Faith. The monastery community comprises both seasoned monks who have lived very full monastic lives for decades, and many younger monks who have brought to the monastery a youthful vigor and energy.

The monastery is located on 180 acres of land in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia. The surrounding hills and forests provide the monastery with seclusion from the distractions and temptations of the world, as well as a daily reminder of the beauty of God's creation. These two aspects of our physical setting help to lead them to prayer.

The monks support themselves mainly by manufacturing incense in the ancient Athonite tradition and handmade soap, as well as through selling other liturgical items and products.

My wife is French so is very demanding with all kinds of beauty products. For her then to say these are excellent says it all. I tried the lavender soap and agree.
