How to use

Apply to skin as frequently as required, smoothing gently into the affected areas in the direction of hair growth. 

To use as a skin cleanser or a soap substitute, use as required instead of soap when washing in the bath or shower.

To use as a bath additive, melt about 4g (the size of a £2 coin) in hot water and add to the bath. Care should be taken as this can make the bath slippery.
