This week, garden staff and volunteers worked together to make spearmint soap. Volunteer Alix shares a bit about the process:

Maya Traditions’ staff member Oseas gave a brief demonstration on how to produce these bars of soap. Ingredients consist of coconut oil, spearmint picked from the garden, olive oil, and lemon grass to create a refreshing fragrance while rejuvenating your skin. He blended these ingredients together then poured it into a try covered in wax paper to let set for a couple of days. The end product will be 20 bars of this sweet-smelling soap.

The newly developed soaps will be available for purchase at our office in Panajachel, Guatemala and a few select local stores!
