Super soap arrives
Just look at this truly magnificent bar of soap - doesn't it look like a proper gardeners' soap?
Laura at Luckycats finished making my soap this week and I went to collect it this morning - I had said that I wanted great chunks of soap and that it what I have got. Each bar is about 280g with this fantastic rugged tread on the top.
The soap is everything that a gardener needs - there is fine pumice to get every last it of grime out, there is May Chang essential oil which has antiseptic properties to deal with any nicks and scratches, there is Calendula (from our own plants) to soothe and there is a lot of cocoa butter to moisturise. On top of that it smells wonderful and all the ingredients are registered organic apart from our calendula
It will have its first retail outing tomorrow at Duntreath Christmas Fair, (Duntreath Castle, Blanefield 10-4) where I shall be selling it in limited edition waterproof linen pouches for £6.95. you can see these at the far left of the stall above.
