Rachael's Handmade Soap Giveaway (and Cash For Maternity Winner)

I am excited to introduce a new sponsor (and a new love affair) of mine!

This soap is pretty enough and smells good enough to eat, but is not made to be ingested!!! I'm telling you, I'm in love.

Rachael sent me a few bars of soap to try out and for the time in my life, I am excited about soap!!! I am floored by the quality, the scents and how well the soap works!


Welcome to the BEST SELLER- (which I ordered)

Peppermint Wake-up Bar w/ Green Sea Clay!

This is the description in the listing!

Peppermint & Spearmint together are invigorating and smell Fresh.

This soap has the addition of green sea clay that leaves your skin feeling smooth. It has remarkable abilities to draw impurities from the skin as well as a beneficial detoxifier of the skin.

Traditional cold process soap making that has been perfected over the last 8 years.

No dyes, or perfumes, just all natural essential oils.

Perfect for sensitive skin.

This listing is for one bar of soap. Homemade and cut in the last three weeks. Each bar is approx. 3.5-4oz .

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Peppermint Essential Oil, Spearmint Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, dried mint leaves & green sea clay. .

It is as awesome as its description!!! And so are the others!

There are a few other things besides soap with which Rachael can supply you.

I hate to tell Rachael this, but she is ripping herself off. She sells these cute bath scrubbies for so little that it wouldn't be worth the time of making them. A group of 5 costs only $3.50. (I'll do the math for you - that's only $.70 each. What a steal!!!!) I got one of these bath scrubbies and my kids have taken it over for their bathtime. They LOVE it!

You can also do the dishes or cleaning in style with some fashionable oil cloth gloves!

Or you can decorate your countertop with a shabby chic mason jar dispenser!

When I received the box in the mail, I could smell this wonderful peppermint smell flowing out of the box. As I opened it, the bars of soap were lovely packaged in "brown paper packages tied up with string." Totally worthy of sending as a gift to someone across the country!

(I'm going to send some to my MIL in Texas for Mother's Day. No need to buy it at the store, package it myself and then pay for shipping.)

I received 4 soaps that I requested. The all natural face soap, spiced pear, black raspberry vanilla, and peppermint wake-up bar! Wow!

I recommend all of them, but especially the all natural face bar. It takes my make-up off better than the more expensive soap I have been using, and my face feels great. No drying out!!!

The scented soaps are heavenly. They smell wonderfully, look so beautiful, have great texture and work well doing the job of soap!

Individual bars only cost $3.00. Or you can get this good deal of 4 bars of soaps for only $10. I tell you, it is WORTH it!!!

But, the best deal is to buy 16 bars of soap for only $35.00! That's only $2.18 each! Eat your heart out Bed, Bath and Beyond. I'm not buying any of your soap anymore!!! I've found my new supplier of womanly gifts!!! Christmas will be so much easier this year!!!
