It's funny that as I was preparing (mentally preparing, so it doesn't take long) to write this blog I visited Carolyn & she was revisiting a vlog about some soap she had ordered. There are so many awesome "bath & body" people on Etsy that it's impossible to decide, so you just have to jump in sometimes. I had noticed this person on the forums & Twitter & when I saw that she was having a sale, decided to jump in.
These are from Burnt Mill on Etsy. She was having free shipping on her 6 bars for $24 item. Who could pass that up? The "free shipping" is over, but 6 bars for $24 is still there. Well, be warned, these are not your Grandmother's soaps as you can see by the photo. Thay are funky & swirly & fun. They arrived very quickly & the smell.....oh, the smell when I opened the package.
I ordered (from top left down, then top right down)
Warm Vanilla Sugar Type( not too sweet & with a little bit of musk undertone)
Love Spell Type (very crisp smelling)
Jasmine (light jasmine scent..very clean)
Lavender Blossom (light lavender scent..very clean)
Island Kola Nut ( warm, but not too sweet & that is coconut you see on the top)
I knew these were going to be wonderful when it rained all day & the soap got a little sweaty. I don't know the real reason, but maybe I've figured it out. Glycerin attracks water & it was raining. If the bars were sweaty, (not sticking or oily), the glycerin in them is attacting the moisture from the air. Glycerin =softness & yumminess. It's all very scientific really...obviously....especially the yumminess. I used to make soap & I really enjoyed making soap, but not getting stuck with 5 pounds of the same soap whenever I wanted to "play". I'll leave it in the hands of the experts.
I love these soaps but have to decide which ones will leave me to be given as presents, but until then they stay with me in my living room. These are large sized bars (I'd say around 5 oz) and the seller sent them out the day after I ordered. I love the scents & was surprised at the ones that have become my favorites. The lather is awesome & makes my weathered hands feel "oh so good". She has over 30 scent & the bars are beautiful. It's a shame that I have to use them, but it's the circle of life.
Y'all have a great day!!
