Exquisite, Ethical, Vegan Soap


Handcrafted just along the lanes from our studio and specially selected to complement our candle fragrances each Kushboo soap is inspired by generations of soap-making tradition, individually handcrafted, engraved and hand wrapped to create a luxurious experience for your skin and your senses.

Kushboo soaps are 100% natural and are handmade using only the finest ethically sourced natural plant based ingredients and are naturally fragranced using pure essential oils and gentle botanics - and for every soap they sell, they donate another across three charities - homelessness, food banks and a women’s refuge.

Suitable for all skin types






| PEPPERMINT & COCONUT | - to complement Eucalyptus Leaf


Uplifting, intense and refreshing with moisturising exfoliation


This soap is perfect to wake up both your skin and your senses.

Peppermint oil is a natural source of menthol, which helps wake up tired, dull skin. It’s a great source of vitamins and minerals, and has a natural ability to soothe.

Coconut is added to the bar due to its natural moisturising properties. It can help remove dead cells from the skin as the shredded flakes act as a gentle nourishing exfoliator.

Spirulina is the final ingredient is this special bar. This super food is an algae that contains most essential nutrients. It’s also rich in organic ingredients that feed your skin from the outside, warding off free radicals and eliminating toxins from the skin. It increases skin metabolism to enable faster skin cell turnover and skin healing, and helping prevent acne breakouts.



| OATMEAL & BERGAMOT | - to complement Soothe


Floral and Citrusy with deep exfoliation


This fresh smelling soap is fragranced with Bergamot essential oil to create a relaxed and happy feeling. It’s useful in fighting oily skin, acne, psoriasis, and eczema. The scent of the oil is citrus – fruity and sweet, with a warm spicy floral quality.

Oatmeal complements the soap acting as a soothing, moisturising exfoliater.







| CEDARWOOD, LEMONGRASS & CALENDULA | - to complement Amalfi Coast



Earthy, citrusy and fresh with healing exfoliation




This bright soap is often described as ‘delicious’ due to the perfect balance of Cedarwood, Lemongrass and Calendula.

Cedarwood essential oil contains antiseptic properties making it perfect to reduce skin irritations and acne. The oil can also help tighten the skin to give a youthful appearance and the scent of the oil can have a soothing and calming effect on the mind.

The citrus undertones of Lemongrass partners well with the Cedarwood giving the soap its lemony fresh smell. It is antibacterial and antiseptic and can also lift spirits and boost self-esteem.


Calendula petals are added for their plant-based antioxidants that protect the body against cell-damaging free radicals.

Ingredients in calendula are responsible for its healing properties as they are anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial.





| PATCHOULI & LIME | - to complement Bergamot & Basil


Musky and sweet

This musky sweet, exotic soap has a mouthwatering aroma. Patchouli essential oil can help break down cellulite and aid the regeneration of skin cells. The delicious blend of fresh limes combined with the patchouli can help lift your spirits and lighten your mood. A generous amount of ground almond shell makes it an excellent exfoliator and the perfect soap bar for gardeners

| LAVENDER & LEMON | - to complement Calm & Tranquillity


Calming and luxurious with soothing exfoliation

Made with Lavender and Lemon essential oil, the soap contains no artificial colouring, perfume or additives. With lashes of moisturising coconut oil, olive oil, and a handful of lavender seeds, this bar will gently nourish and exfoliate your skin.

Lavender is known to relieve stress, promote restful sleep as well as lower skin irritation.

Lemon essential oil is subtle and added to compliment the lavender giving the soap a citrusy fresh hint. Lemon is both antibacterial and deeply nourishing. It works well to improve your completion, leaving your skin soft and supple.

Lemon is a beauty must have in India. It is used to treat and enhance the skin, hair and nails.

Vibrant and Refreshing


Turmeric has been a firm beauty favourite with Indian women for centuries. It is especially used by Indian brides to help remove dead skin and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it fresh and glowing. It is anti-inflammatory and can work on acne and calm the skin. Turmeric contains antioxidants which protect the skin from damage and can even slow down the sign of ageing.

Verbena essential oil has a refreshing, uplifting and vibrant aroma and is often described as ‘a Spa’ smell. It can calm down puffiness leaving the skin soft and supple.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Soy candles burn cleaner, longer and slower than paraffin wax candles. The most important thing to remember is on the first burn, let the melt pool reach right to the edges of the candle. This could take anything up to 4 hours.

After that, keep your wick trimmed and don't burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Any residual wax left at the end simply washes away in warm soapy water.


Do not let your candle burn right down to the bottom of the container. Discontinue use when 1/4’’ of wax remains


Soy is a living organism. It continues to expand, contract and change from its current form. It may also look frosted. These ‘flaws’ are normal and it is a clear indication that you have purchased a 100% all natural soy candle.

Custom and personalised orders

Our candles can be personalised. For further details and to discuss requirements and prices, please make contact

Can I get candles and melts in one of last season's fragrances?

We sometimes have our previous season's candles available but they're not shown on the site. Just drop us a line and we can check if we've any in.
