Haircare: Washing hair with natural soap can admittedly be a bit of a challenge at first. Natural soap works best when it is applied to the head as lots of foam. This may take some more time to scrub the bar, but you will enjoy the results. If the foam diffuses quickly when massaged into hair, wash it out and apply foam for the second or even a third time, until you can massage foam around your head. If the foam diffuses quickly, it is an indication that it is removing old oils and residue such as silicones from other hair care products. Be sure to wash all the natural soap out of your hair with lots of water. You can use an optional apple cider vinegar rinse containing 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar to 500ml of water. Pour over your head at the end of your shower or bath, without washing it out. The light smell of vinegar will quickly go away once dried. This will help improve hair gloss and calm the scalp. A vinegar rinse may be especially useful for high porosity wavy hair.
Water Resistant: Linseed oil helps the wood to be more water resistant, however the wood itself can get wet if covered in water. It does not present an issue if the wood becomes wet, but it should not sit for long periods of time in water, just like any natural product.
Colour Change with Time: Like any wood which is open to the environment, over time the colour will change. Soap will first have a darkening effect on the wood, as it reacts to the tannins. The tannins however will be washed out of the wood over time, leading to an overall lighter colour. The tannins which are washed away can create some brown runoff-water. This is completely natural, and is temporary. This process in fact helps to preserve the wood. In Scandinavian countries it is even a tradition to conserve wooden floors and furniture with soap. UV light also reacts with the tannins in the wood. Over time the soap dish will take on a light grey patina.
Care Instructions: With the correct care the larch soap dish can last a long time. It is recommended to regularly wash the soap dish with some warm water, scrub off any soap residue, dry with a towel, and leave in a well ventilated area to completely dry out. Once dried, you can re-oil the wood with linseed, tung, refined hemp, soy, or walnut oil. These are all natural oils that on their own can be used to seal and protect wood. They are called drying oils. Drying oils penetrate, harden and preserve wood – providing a long-lasting finish that does not turn rancid. Vegetable oils and olive oil should be avoided as they can turn rancid, and mineral oil should be avoided as it is made of petroleum.
