Essence of Scotland Sweet Gale Traditional Shaving Soap 120g

Essence of Scotland Sweet Gale Traditional Shaving Soap 120g


The Gentleman's Groom Room own range Essence Of Scotland Sweet Gale traditional shaving soap is enriched and fragranced with Bog Myrtle, Natural Honey, Mixed Spices, Cedarwood, Beeswax and Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The prominent note in this shaving soap is from the Bog Myrtle, also called Sweet Gale which has beautifully fragrant leaves. This native herb has anti-ageing properties, may help to control acne bacteria, has healing properties that can help with minor nicks and cuts and is suitable for sensitive skin. We launched this shaving soap in 2010 as we felt that the use and benefits of Bog Myrtle were often overlooked.

When it came to adding a 'nip' of whisky to our shaving soap it was essential it be a malt. Malt whisky is a different cratur from the blended scotch. Worthy of appreciation, malt is not to be rushed, it rewards consideration. We believe the same is true of the shaving experience.

For best results when lathering put a small amount of hot water onto the surface of the soap for a few seconds, then discard. Starting with a damp brush rather than a wet brush, lather the soap straight from container using circular motions on the surface of the soap, add a little more water to the tips of your shaving brush as required, continuing with circular motions to build your lather till the soap begins to form peaks. Face lather using painting motions with your brush.

The Essence of Scotland range sport a uniquely designed bespoke plaid for each of the soap fragrance labels.

Bravo! I began using shaving soaps a few years ago and thought I would experiment with a scented soap from my ancestral homeland in Scotland proper. The scent is divine. I currently use the 'Heather' scent, which heightens my shaving experience, but not as effectively as this 'Sweet Gale' scent. Therefore, I must order this directly from Gentleman's Groom Room to satisfy my urge for more! Again, bravo and thank you!
