Need to Clean Up A bit?




Not only do I sell on Etsy, but I also buy on Etsy. Not as much as I would like, but I've splurged a few times. The thing I'm most interested in is the Bath and Body items. I think that handmade soaps are so much better than those commercially made. They smell fantastic, they are mild and rinse off really well. My first purchase of handmade soap came from a shop called Cypress Lake Soaps. This shop was new to Etsy and I was one of their first purchases. I bought the Rosemary-Mint soap. I was so excited when it came with 2 smaller bars of "extra" soap, Peppermint and Patchouli. Although they were all great, my favorite was the Peppermint. CypressLake Soap is a family business. In their search for milder, safer and more environmentally safe soap, they began using only natural ingredients. They make their soap in small batches and they are cured for up to 6 weeks. I didn't know that soap had to be "cured." Anyway, I love this soap! Check out Etsy for more great Handmade items!
