Literary Lip Balms

Sherbet Lemon Soap Bar


A lively, sunny scent that will put a twinkle your eye.

The story: Inspired by children's authors like Astrid Lindgren, Roald Dahl and others, this lemony fragrance is full of joy. Bright notes of lemon and bergamot meld together like sunshine, and fade out against a lingering note of cedarwood.

The product: A cleansing bath soap for hands and body. Work up a lather and bask in the sunny scent. The warm yellow colour comes from an infusion of annatto seed, and will bring a splash of happiness to your bathroom.

Our soaps contain a high amount of organic olive oil and luxurious shea and cocoa butter, which leaves your skin feeling soft and supple after use. Please note: Due to the nature of handmade soap, there are slight variations between the designs of each bar.

    Sparkly lemony perfection! 🍋

    This scent truly transported me to feelings of childlike wonder and magic. It lathers beautifully and it leaves your skin soft and clean with just a subtle scent that makes me feel as if I have a thin layer of liquid sun around me, haha. It's a wonderful soap to have! 🍋✨

    This is a dreamy soap. The fresh smell of lemons and the creamy lather is divine. I will be ordering again! Highly recommend if you love a fresh scent and to feel squeaky clean.
