Homegrown Organic Loofah Sponges
We want to share the bounties of our land with you!
We grow hundreds of medicinal and edible plants at the Garden of Eden. They are accessible, cheap, and/or free options for your own wellness, without the MANY dangers pharmaceuticals impose. Every aspect of life is better when you feel healthy and happy, and we seek to reconnect you to your roots and remind you of these options for your health.
Allow us to share the blessings of nature and introduce you to one of our marvelous plants:
Our organic, homegrown loofah AKA luffah sponges are indispensable around the house! We use these unique plants to scrub everything from our bodies to dishes!
The loofah plant grows as a climbing vine, and the sponges themselves develop from beautiful yellow flowers on the vine. They are edible and tender while quite young, but as they grow become fibrous and unpalatable. The dark green skin turns a light tan and becomes quite dry and brittle when the sponge is ready for harvest. We hand gather the pods and gently peel off the skin.
These loofah sponges include the seeds, so you can grow your own plant! They are very prolific, and spread like pumpkin vines. We recommend cutting the dried sponge into smaller sections to get several pieces from each pod.
Please contact us if you are a soap maker or anyone else who might be interested in placing a bulk order and we will gladly negotiate.
