Blossom soap is a soft, fresh-sweet soap with a nice light foam and a real blossom scent that is not too sharp. If you like the smell of flowers but not heavy perfumes, this soap is perfect.
Every spring we carefully pick blossoms from our almond trees and the wild cherry trees in the forest. We capture the incredibly tasty, slightly spicy floral scent in oil by macerating them. Together with essential oils of neroli (orange blossom), bergamot and supporting scents such as petitgrain and lavender, the subtly fresh blossom scent of this soap is created.

Werfzeep originated in 2009 from Evelien's preference for old crafts and natural products. During a trip through Canada that she and Laurens made, she ended up on an idyllic family farm where, among other things, soap was made, with a ladle and an enormous pan. The wooden house smelled like a fairytale and immediately on the first day Evelien helped with making soap. To her surprise, this handmade soap, which was in the shower and by the sink, was gentle and caring for her skin. Having been plagued with eczema since childhood, soap had been out of the question for years, but this soap turned out to be a very different story than anything she'd been acquainted with until then, which mainly caused her to feel itchy.
Soap made from oils is a completely different product than factory soap made from refined fatty acids, with additives such as foam improvers, synthetic perfumes and preservatives, which also have the glycerine skimmed off. This discovery was enough for Evelien to become completely captivated by soap, the craft soap seedling, all possible ingredients and the effect on the skin. She started developing her soaps in a historic wharf cellar on the Oudegracht in Utrecht. Now, eight years later, she works with a growing team in the beautiful soap workshop on the Westerkade.
