Announcement    Welcome To the Tree of Life!
You will find here a variety of special soaps made in the traditional cold process method. Many of them are made from materials that are unique to the region of Israel and the Middle East.

✻ All of my recipes are vegan. I don’t use animal fats, milk, or honey.
✻ My soaps are made with a unique blend of vegetable oils that create a hard soap and a luxurious lather without using palm oil.
✻ All the ingredients that I use are 100% Kosher
✻ I try to use as many local Israeli products that I can: my olive oil is an extra virgin oil from the north of Israel, and so are my herbs, vegetable oils and many of my essential oils.
✻ I don’t use artificial colorant. My soaps are dyed by natural colorants only, like Dead Sea mud, colorful clays, paprika and other herbs and spices.

Updates

Have you ever wondered where do the herbs I use in my soaps come from? Well, most of them are picked, dried, and infused in oils by me. I'm always inspired by the nature that surrounds me evergreen_tree
My shampoo bars are definitely one of my more popular soaps this month. I'm on my way to the post office with a few orders in the easiest form of transportation here in Tel Aviv- a bike bike
My Winter Woods soap is curing alongside a new friend (which will be soon uploaded and will be ready to purchase)

About

About this shop

Welcome!
I'm Daniela, and Tree of Life is my soap project that started five years ago as a hobby that quickly turned into my dream job.
I'm a proud Israeli artist that loves and honour my country and heritage. My inspiration for my products is the Bible and the unique local nature. Many of the ingredients I use are locally sourced by me and small businesses of Jews, Christians, Druse, and Arabs.
My products are entirely natural, vegan, and palm oil free.

✻ I replaced the bright neon of artificial colourants with herbs, spices, colourful clays and natural pigments.
✻ Instead of the heavy scent of synthetic fragrances, I use essential oils like Eucalyptus, Mint, Geranium, and more essential oils with amazing smells.
✻ My products don't contain petroleum-based detergents. Instead, I use natural cold pressed vegetable oils and butters, and infusions of medicinal herbs and spices that many are picked, dried and ground by me.
My goal is simple- to unite art with nature. My task is to know how to combine essential oils, butters, and medicinal herbs into one product.

Though you will find here a variety of different natural products, my speciality is soap making. I make my soaps in the traditional cold process method. Evidence indicates that this method was used for hundreds of years, including in Israel- there were a few centuries old workshops discovered in Jaffa, Jerusalem, and other cities.
The advantage of this method is that the oils are heated the least possible and so preserve many of their properties. Also, these soaps are completely biodegradable and don't contaminate the water or soil.

The texture, foam, and properties of each soap depend on the oils and added ingredients. My soaps are made with a unique blend of vegetable oils and butters, which create a luxurious, lathery soap that doesn't dry the skin.

Frequently asked questions
Do you make custom and personalised orders?

I do! If you're looking for a specific type of soap or are interested in ordering in large quantities feel free to contact me or request a custom order on Etsy. Take into account that if you're ordering a custom soap, it takes between 2-4 weeks for the soaps to be ready and if you live overseas, the shipping can also take time. I recommend making order two months before the due date.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my products arrive gift wrapped since I see all of my products as a gift – whether you’re buying them for a loved one or as a gift to yourself. Everyone deserves to relax in a bath after a long day of work!
If you don't want me to include the receipt, or have any other special request, please send me a note or message.

Wholesale availability

Fortunately, I do sell for resell/ wholesale. If you’re looking to buy in large quantities, please send me a private message.

Care instructions

My products are completely natural and do not contain hardening ingredients. My soaps are likely to soften somewhat faster than a synthetic soap and to prevent that as long as the soap is not used, it is recommended to keep it ventilated and dry. During use, to extend its shelf life, it is best to use a soap dish with good drainage.

Shipping and estimated delivery time

I send most of my products via the Israeli post's registered mail, the only exceptions are the soap samples. You will be provided with the tracking number, the shipping time is estimated to be between 5-20 days to North America or 4-15 to Europe, although from my experience, it normally arrived within 6 working days to Europe, and 2 weeks to the US
