Halcyon Sargasso Botanica soap
A Caribbean holiday . . .
Though I was born and grew up in the Caribbean, my first experience of a proper Caribbean holiday was in Antigua. It's quite a different landscape from Jamaica's: flat, not mountainous. . . and a much smaller island.
But, OH, the beach! I wanted reminding of that perfect yellow arc of sand forming my memory of this perfect Caribbean beach -- something a little nostalgic and old-fashioned. I hope I've created it. My sister says yes. This one's her favourite.
A scoop of ultra-moisturising avocado butter adds richness to the bar. I wish I had this soap back then to help me with what was the worst sunburn of my life. Please don't forget to use the right sunscreen.
Our Sargasso Botanica soaps begin with a base of coconut butter + aloe vera. To this, we add olive oil, mango butter, and sustainably sourced palm butter.
The Halcyon bar is enriched with avocado butter. This scent is exclusive to Sargasso.
Another favourite night, near Treasure Beach, St Elizabeth, Jamaica.
If you're so lucky to be booking a Caribbean holiday, you've got more options than ever! A villa stay, serviced or self-catering, eco-lodges, hosted home stays, even luxury accommodations in former plantation great houses. So consider skipping the mega-resort or all-inclusive, get off the beaten path, and, as a bonus, help the local economy.
