I Love Handmade Soap {Giveaway}

*UPDATE* Congrats to Bridget! You won some delicious soap!


I love homemade.

There's just something very special about crafting a gift in your home to give away or use for your family.

I've been experimenting at home-making for the last few weeks and I'm learning so much. (I'll be sharing my homemade bread woes and victories soon!)

Soap is an item I've never tried to make, but I love using homemade soap. I love the texture, the scent, the craft.

All natural cold process 4 oz fig soap limited quantity

Sofya's Words is a sweet Etsy store that offers shoppers a wonderful assortment of soaps and personalized calligraphy prints. Go have a look and tell me what you'd choose with the $25 gift certificate one of you will win!

This Espresso Chocolate soap not only has my mouth watering, but I'm also craving a hot bath!

All Natural Cold Process Soap 4 oz Espresso Chocolate

Check out my other Mom Store giveaway going on right now!

This giveaway will end on Thursday.

ilovemy5kids said...

I love the lavender! I need some calm and relaxation.

Karen @ Faith, Family, and Fibromyalgia said...

I would definitely buy all lavender soap for myself. I have Fibromyalgia and have a really hard time sleeping at night. The lavender would be extremely helpful to use in a bath before bedtime so that I could relax a little and since lavender is good for sleep then I would hope it may make me a little sleepy so I could sleep better.

LaVonne said...

Lavendar soap and some cards like the brick wall or colombian photo.

Amanda said...

ok anything that has to do with Chocolate AND hot baths! sign me up!!!

Jaden Paige said...

I would definitely buy some of the lemongrass-cedarwood-ginger soap, and probably some of the chocolate spearmint, too. I would also buy some as part of my gift for my Mom for mother's day :)

arkie said...

Definately the Expresso/Chocolate! What a way to start the day!

I like lavendar, but the chocolate Spearmint and Espresso sound yummy. Orange spice, too. So, I pretty much want all of it!

I think I would want to try the Custom Listing by Ashley just because there are so many different flavors that sound yummy. I love homemade soap.

Holly said...

Thank you for the giveaway! I love handmade soap as well, so any of the "flavors" she has in her shop are appealing to me. . .

Anita's Journal said...

Being that I'm a coffee person I think I'd have to go with Espresso Chocolate

Michelle said...

You had me at espresso chocolate. Oh my goodness. YUM!

Anonymous said...

Lemongrass - ginger sounds wonderful. Actually, they all do! MKW

Marisa said...

Espresso and coffee is definitely a weakness of mine, but the sage lime really caught my attention. Sounds so refreshing!

Tam said...

Oh I think I'd choose a variety of the sample sized soaps for starters to put in the bathroom for guests to use.

I'd love some regular sized for my family too

suzannah said...

mmm, lemongrass cedarwood ginger!

(i must admit, homemade soap does remind me of the movie fight club and the ghastly way they render soap!)

HP said...

Chocolate spearmint, Espresso or maybe the Lavender scent. Yumm!

Penny Penguin said...

oooo! Too many yummy soaps! The heart shaped ones are so cute! I'd stock up on a variety of scents: sage lime, lemongrass ginger, and lavender sound heavenly!

Jen said...

I love the butterfly shape! I would probably choose that since I am doing a Butterfly Theme for my daughter's 2nd birthday party - adding a little butterfly soap in either the lavender or the espresso scent would be fun! All natural cold process method extra gentle soap lavender

Melonie said...

WOW - what an awesome shop!

I would get a whole bunch of the 1 oz. soaps - 5 of each of the 5 scents. That way I could have some of each scent for myself and some of each scent for little treats to send to friends and family throughout the year as "pick-me-ups"!

Jess said...

Oh Orange Spice or Sage lime for sure mmmm

Melissa R said...

Orange Spice sounds wonderful.

Jenn @ Beautiful Calling said...

Orange Spice Sounds Nice (and it Rhymes!) and perhaps a lavender for my grandmother. It is her favorite scent.

I love giveaways!

Reflections in My Mirror said...

I like the rosemary cedarwood, the thank you soaps and the lavender "seashell" soaps - they would go well in my new "spa" themed bathroom!

Karen_thrifty said...

Our house hasn't sold yet and I still have two house payments. There hasn't been much pampering going on so some special soap would make a nice treat. The lemongrass or lavendar sound very calming.

The orange spice sounds wonderful. I find the hardest thing about soap making is finding the supplies. It's so much fun, and the yeild is great....very frugal.
