Holy Lama natural handmade ayurvedic soaps are popular for their long lasting fragrance. All soaps are made with coconut oil with a unique blend of essential oils that will awaken your senses. Each soap is beautifully packed in a natural handmade shell made from the leaf of areca palm tree.
Holy Lama Naturals Yogi Soap contains the unique characteristics of Ayurveda's most prized botanicals:
Neem products are believed to be anthelmintic, antifungal, antidiabetic, antibacterial, antiviral, contraceptive and sedative. Neem products are also used in selectively controlling pests in plants. Neem is considered a major component in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine and is particularly prescribed for skin disease.
Tulsi extracts are used in ayurvedic remedies for common colds, headaches, stomach disorders, inflammation, heart disease, various forms of poisoning, and malaria. Traditionally, tulsi is taken in many forms: as herbal tea, dried powder, fresh leaf, or mixed with ghee. Essential oil extracted from Karpoora tulsi is mostly used for medicinal purposes and in herbal cosmetics, and is widely used in skin preparations due to its anti-bacterial activity. For centuries, the dried leaves of tulsi have been mixed with stored grains to repel insects.

Natural - Sustainable - Fair Trade
Holy Lama's products are predominantly made from natural ingredients, avoiding the use of harsh chemicals or synthetics. Wherever possible, we use sustainable materials for packaging. During manufacturing, less than 1% wastage is produced, and all waste is used as fuel or cattle feed, thus our carbon footprint is exceptionally low!
The raw materials used for manufacture are sourced primarily from local farmers in Kerala and rest of India, building upon over seven decades of strongly-established relationships with farmers. The business runs on a no-credit principle, meaning all farmers and raw material suppliers are paid immediately. The factory pays fair wages to staff, and fair prices to the farmers.
Holy Lama Naturals is recognized in Kerala as a Government-approved women’s enterprise, where over 80% of the factory workers are women. Most come from disadvantaged backgrounds (i.e. widowed or deserted by a partner).
