I hate to be a "soap Nazi" but I have to admit, I die a little inside when someone tells me they want to use my soaps for air freshener in their powder room. "They're so pretty, I hate to use them! I just set them beside the sink and they smell so good!"
Why do I care? You see, each bar of soap that I sell is made by hand, from scratch, with your skin in mind. I don't start with a pre-made base; I start with rich, pure oils, and go through a somewhat complicated process to turn them into soaps that are as wonderful on the skin as they are on the nose. The vegetable oils I use create a mild soap that cleanses beautifully and rinses clean to leave your skin feeling soft and smelling fresh. I hate to see all that potential go wasted.
So if you want to freshen your powder room, may I suggest a nice potpourri or room spray? Don't worry about using up your soaps, I'll make more when they're gone!
