My favorite things.....

While taking my long, hot bath tonight, and looking around the tub at the 35 bars of soap (yes, you read that right, 35 bars & all different! LOL) I thought about my favorite ones. See, as a soap maker, I'm always trying new scents & blends. But my favorites are not even soaps that I have made. Now, I have my favorites from my over 25 different scents...but my favorite bars of soap right now happened to be from other soap makers. People think I am NUTS for buying soap from others when I have plenty here. But trust me, these ladies make some awesome soap that I just can't even begin to recreate...nor would I even try.

The first soaper is like a hero to me. I have envied her for years. I always read nothing but raves about her products, and was finally lucky enough to get my claws on a bar of her world famous soap. She lives in Australia, and well lets face it, shipping to the states is not cheap! But, then came the wonderful world of Etsy.com, and alas, I bought my first "Bandi Soaps!" Her Etsy siteshowcases some of her favorite bars....and a few of my favorites! :-) Her lemongrass & tea tree has been a god send to my face!! And the Panacea....O M G! I just can't say enough great things about her soaps. And, she is an amazing woman!!! She also blogs, and I look forward to her adventures.

The next one is also on Etsy. Her shop is called Haunt and let me tell you, she makes a mean bar of soap! My favorites are Roma, Raspberry Honey, and milk & nectar....that milk & nectar will make you want to eat your arm off!!!! She also happens to be a wonderful woman!

(edited to add) I just had to add another favorite! She is another worthy of much praise. I received the most delectable soap in the mail today. It was her Yule Limited Edition Soap...and folks, its swoon worthy! I'm talking about Faeriemadesoaps.com or you can find her on Etsy at Faerie Made Soaps She sent me samples of her Cedar Mint soap (drooool) & Almond Flax, and a small sample of Amber scrub! I cannot wait to take a bath tonight! LOL Thanks again Fae!

So there you have....just a few of my favorite things! I swear, these ladies make my bath time so enjoyable...and they don't even know it! :-)
