Soapwort or Saponaria officinalis is a herb of the family Caryophyllaceae. (just like xhosa dream plant)
It is a fairly large perennial herb 30 to 80 cm tall.
The soapwort has white flowers sometimes pale pink 2 to 4 cm fragrant.
It is frequently found in cool places.
Soapwort seeds are small in color black, they resemble those of black cumin.

Mixed with soda, it could also whiten wools and laces.
