Indigo is a potent extract obtained from a variety of different plants from tropical and subtropical regions, and is said to have many healing properties. Native Americans used it for healing wounds, since it helps inhibit the growth of microorganisms.

Its natural antiseptic properties will not only help heal sores and small lesions, but it also has curing properties towards psoriasis, rashes, mouth sores and eczema.

Both the recipe and photo on this page were submitted by Slandha, from Srann Handcrafted Soap (www.srann.co). Check their site and facebook page for more inspiring handcrafted soaps. Here’s the original recipe:
