Olive Oil and Olive Oil Soap have a very long tradition in Palestine. Our soap comes from a small family run factory in Nablus, called Nabulsi. Their recipe is a family secret! They make a lovely unscented goat's milk-olive oil soap and a traditional olive oil soap. Both are great for body and even gentle on the face.
We also feature olive oil soap by Aseela from Dheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem. They produce soaps using the highest quality olive oil in Palestine, including wild leaves, flowers and even camel’s milk
We also carry soap dishes that are handmade by a women's cooperative in Nisf Jibel, a tiny village above Nablus. We are very proud to support their work. The pieces are truly hand crafted and evidence the charm of each woman's efforts.
All purchases from Handmade in Palestine support fair trade artisans and 100% of the profit is donated to a local not for profit to plant trees and protect Palestine’s environment.
