Hallo Habeeb,

There are a lot of brands of natural soaps. The issue is what smell you like. You can find with oil of olives or herbs etc. There is no specific brands maybe "papoutsanis" or "melira" but the best solution is to visit a shop specially for soaps.
Which area do you visit?

i am looking for solid Olive Oil Soap with some smell such as ( Chamomile - lemon - orange - Aloe Vera - Honey - Lavender - Rose - Cinnamon - Olive leaves - Turmeric ... etc)
If there are a lot of brands so can you give me where the place and what is the name of area in that place i can find more soaps?
i heard about Ηράκλειο.

if i can find it in Athens it is bitter
ELPIDA thank you soooo much for your quick and very good answer. actually the papoutsanis one of the right interesting for me.

I will visit Athens and one more city i didn't decide yet, after locals recommendations.

my visit dates 23 April to 1 May 2019
The most widespread and easy to find natural olive oil soap is Arkadi, which is found in most supermarkets in several forms: as big green bars for any use, grated for laundry use, and others including a liquid version. For bath I like Apivita, which is another widespread brand, a glycerin based formula mostly found in pharmacies. There are also small locally produced soaps at the chain Hondos Center, in the half of the store devoted to non-luxury products: usually a good selection of goats’ milk and olive oil soaps scented with essential oils, no particular brands that I remember but very rustic, maybe hand cut, and pretty good.

Unfortunately the famous brand Korres, though they tout natural ingredients, have strong, artificial, and in my opinion not very pleasant fragrances.
