Lavender Body Products

From the Hermitage of the Holy Cross

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.

Hermitage of the Holy Cross: Wayne, West Virginia

The Hermitage of the Holy Cross is an English speaking monastery under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad and is a dependency of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, New York. The monks support themselves by manufacturing hand-rolled incense in the ancient Athonite tradition and through hand-painted icons, homemade soap, wooden icon shelves, analogions (prayer desks) and other liturgical items and products.

Holy Cross Monastery was founded in September 1986 by Hieromonk Kallistos in House Springs, Missouri. The Hermitage remained in the Missouri area for the next 14 years. An offer of land was made to the Hermitage and with the blessings of the monastery's Abbot, Archbishop Laurus of Holy Trinity Monastery and the monastery's spiritual father, Igumen George, the brotherhood decided to move the monastery to West Virginia in 2000.

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.
