  2. Hi , what countries is your giveaway open to ?

  3. My favorite Desert Soap Stone item is the juniper morning soap - such striking colors!

    And my favorite exfoliate item is the ginger whipped shea butter sugar scrub! Sounds delicious.

  4. va our giveaway is open to all countries. Thank you for your interest!

  5. Soap on my blog!


  6. My favorite items is the glycerine soap with oatmeal milk and honey scented shea butter. I also think that the swetgrass scent glycerin soap will smell really nice. I do think it would be nice to see more of your products available on etsy, it always seems to say that only 1 of the item is available (to the items I look at anyway)

  7. Hi Tam, nice to meet you. Thank you for the post. With Etsy we pay per listing so generally if someone wants more than one then we (Etsy sellers) either make a special listing for that customer or add more to the listing. Hope this clarifies. Thank you for commenting.
    Jennifer, we will be having more 1940's Girl listed soon. Its getting a redesign, however the old design is available on request.
    Thanks for the input everyone! Great help you are!

  12. I'd love the Exfoliate with Lavender Sugar Scrub. I'd love to see a Peppermint scrub!

  13. I think my favorite is the Ginger Essential Oil Handmade Soap with Chamomile Flowers

  14. I really like the pink soap with rose petals in your custom listings (http://www.etsy.com/listing/42078167/custom-handmade-soap-created-for-you-2) what is it and maybe you can make more of that?

  15. Reading the descriptions of the soaps makes me want to smell them! I would love to see shower gel!
