The soap you use in the shower or at the sink may not stay on your skin long (if it fully rinses off….) but we’ve been making the switch to natural and handmade soaps this last year. I started out buying some of the more natural bars from the supermarket, then the ones at the health food store, and more recently, to handmade all-natural soaps.
I’d love to tell you how to make your own soap, but it’s just not something I’ve tackled yet. f you make your own, let me know. Comment here with some how-to links and I’ll add them into the post.
We’ve tried out a couple of different handmade natural soaps, some right from our local health food store. But since most of you don’t live around here I’ll just tell you about the ones you can buy online.
Simply Cleansing hand makes soaps from just plant oils and essential oils. I did a review for them right before Christmas last year and we’ve been enjoying their soaps ever since. My favorite is the spearmint as the scent is wonderful and the soap is also exfoliating. left my skin feeling great! We’ve also tried the lavender and cinnamon, and enjoy them as well. They also carry many different scents. The bars are sold for $3.00 each (3.5 oz) or buy seven, get one free.
Harmony Acres Soap Company also makes natural soaps from different plant oils and essential oils. I’m in the process of reviewing a few of their items right now and they even sent along a few mini bars of their soaps. My favorite is the Minty Nilla, though they offer a wide variety of interesting scents. The 5.5 oz bars sell for $6.95 each.
