Chandrika soap -
the smell of India
in my Japanese bath





Chandrika soap -
a whiff of Ayurveda
on his German skin

A friend has sent us a few cakes, and it brings back great memories of the outdoor shower room in Goa, where the monsoon would sometimes provide some additional shower power ...



India's natural, herbal, ayurvedic bath soap for freshness, cleanliness and health in a holistic-ayurvedic way.

A friend from India wrote :

Dear Gabi san

"chandrika" means "the moon faced one" or "luminous like the moon" ~ It is a female name.
I had a childhood friend called Chandrika.
chandra ~ moon ! [ Both Sanskrit words used in most Indian Languages
except the Urdu derived ones. ]
Incidentally this soap is made in Keralam where I live. We have been using it for over fifty years in our house! New versions of the same brand are available too now.

So you have an implicit polylingual autumn kigo!
