Make Natural Soap Last Longer

All Natural Soap can seem to give you trouble but really its simple. All you need to not have a mushy bar of soap that doesn’t last is a soap dish. But not any soap dish will work. You need to have a draining soap dish so that your soap can dry in between uses.

Soap gets mushy when it doesn’t dry and is left on a flat wet surface or a soap dish that has water in it.

Here are some photos and links for good soap dishes. You can also type in the name of the soap dish in google and find the price range that fits you.

I use a metal rack that hangs from my shower and I put my shampoo and my bar of soap on that.

Deep in the Woods

The temperature is beginning to drop, the leaves are changing colors and covering the ground like a plush blanket. The smell of the first rain will be here soon and so will the smell of damp soil and plants.

I have created a new scent to take you into the woods to calm your mind after a long day.

Bastille Soaps offer a nice bubbly lather while not drying out your skin due to the high content of olive oil.

Superfatted soaps have great moisturizing and emollient(softening, soothing of the skin) qualities.
