Surprise In My Mail
Green Haven Soaps. And I really have been loving hot process soaps! I don't know if I've just happened upon some really awesome soaps lately or if there really is a difference, but the lather and scent from hot process is amazing. Or maybe I'd just been having duds in cold process lately? Anyway . . .
The Breakfast Bar. It is an unscented goat milk soap, with oatmeal and banana puree. Banana! I don't think I've ever tried a soap with banana, even though I'd heard of it and wanted to try making it in my own soaping days.
Coffee Soap. This one contains triple strength coffee and coffee grounds. A very slight coffee scent does remain in this one. I know from past experience that coffee grounds tend to be rather harsh on the skin, and are generally meant to be used in hand soaps, so I'll put this by the kitchen sink and try some hand scrubbing.
So I must send out a huge THANK YOU, JEAN! Your kindness will not be forgotten! In fact, you should keep an eye on your own mailbox in the coming days . . . hehe! I look forward to trying these, and the Green Haven shop looks like one I would buy from again.
Are you familiar with Green Haven Soaps? Or hot process in general? Let's talk!
