Garden of Simples Hand Poured Soap

Available again - Finally!  It's been a few years since I've made a batch of soap.




LAVENDER
I combine three different lavender essential oils for this bar - Hungarian lavender oil, 
Lavendin oil that I bought in Provence at a market, and a few drops of some 
wondrous lavender oil from The Bay Area.  It's powerful aromatherapy!
The bars are wrapped in parchment.



WHITE ROSE
This rose scent comes from a Hill Town in India.  I love this oil more than most things on earth.
I put a few drops of clove oil in the batch to add the tiniest bit of spice.  We grow white roses
here at Stonehouse.  No matter what variety, they are my favorite.

Clean and Happy!
