Organic & Natural Products

9 12 2007

Lebanon Nature/ Liban Nature is a Lebanese Company, which aims to produce organic products from the land of Jabal Rihane in South Lebanon, and to sell them locally and internationally. Its main product for the time being is the Bay and Olive soap, which manufactured in accordance with the ancient peasant way in Mlikh (Jabal Rihane).

The Natural and Organic Products of Bay Laurel and Olive Berries:

The Middle Eastern Sun draws together the delicate strength and sweetness of the olive oil and the perfume of the bay laurel berries, to give birth to this soap with its reputed curative properties. We would like to emphasize that in Mlikh, we do not have enough organic natural olive oil to produce our soaps, and so we are obliged to buy more than 60% of olive oil from the Lebanese market, in order to manufacture our unique products. We cannot always guarantee that this source of olive oil is organic, for we do not have the technology to check the market oil, and thus, we simply trust the credibility and honesty of the seller. On the other hand, the bay oil is guaranteed to be a completely natural organic oil from the wild natural reserve of Mlikh, which is still free from any kind of pesticides or chemical products.

Manufacturing the Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis) Oil:

The softness of the pure bay tree oil combined with olive oil from the sun soaked soil of Lebanon, creates a truly unique and rare soap, both ancient and traditional. This soap is homemade in a large copper cauldron placed on a slow and soft wooden fire. It is a natural and organic soap, which does not contain any artificial ingredients or animal fats.

In October/November when they are ripe, the individual bay berries are picked by hand. They are then boiled in water for five hours, resting in it for the next day in order to remove the pips by hand. What then remains is placed in boiling water for another three hours. During this process, the pure oil floats to the top of water. This is gently removed by a spoon and  bottled.
