Lemon-Lavender

One of our best selling scents is our soap of the month this month.  It is one of my most fun recipes.  I love the swirl of the brazilian clays and the wonderful aroma and benefits this beauty has to offer.  Check it out on our website its 20% off this month!

People are always asking me where I get my insipiration or how do I come up with the scent and color combinations when creating a bar of soap.  It’s always the same answer, I get ideas from nature and from my love to cook.  Lemon Lavender was inspired by the plants in my garden, spring and a wonderful recipe for Lavender Lemonade – a yummy spring or summer drink.  Try out the recipe and see what you think!
