Wijnstokbladeren (Vitis vinifera)
What an autumnal way to decorate a soap! Vine leaves are not just good looking, their texture will gently exfoliate, leaving the skin silky smooth.
The Vitis vinifera grape is thought to have been growing wild throughout the world long before the arrival of humans. The most common grape is one of the oldest cultivated plants.
Vine leaf extracts are used in various health supplements as grapevine leaves are edible. They are used as a wrapper in Greek and Middle Eastern cooking, as well as to wrap some French cheeses.
