Made with all natural ingredients, they feel wonderful on the bod and smell great. I’m a regular there when it comes to soaps, lotions, and candles especially. In fact, I just unwrapped a bar of Thyme Garden soap this morning – it’s one of my favorites and I never get tired of its beautiful aroma. As I wrote last year around this time (and it still holds true): I encourage you all to stop by The Little Soap Shop to check it out (follow them on Facebook, too). Soaps are made from natural products, and along with the lotions there are no parabens or pthalates to be seen. The soy candles are also wonderful, both in their beautiful scents and their lack of toxins – did you know that most candles are made from petroleum products, so by choosing soy (or beeswax, honestly) you will be kinder to the air quality inside your home? So for this giveaway, we are offering a selection of soaps and a loofah from The Little Soap Shop. Just tell us what your favorite scent is when it comes to personal care products – is it citrusy? Musky? Fruity? Tell all! We’ll pick a winner at random on Monday 12/19, so you have a nice long time to enter. We look forward to reading your comments!

I also like eucalyptus and peppermint, oh and clove to, clove is great. Elaine R December 16th, 2011 I like the citrus scents-lemon,lime and grapefruit. Bella December 16th, 2011 Anything tropical-y. If I can close my eyes and see myself near the ocean, it’s the scent for me! Vanessa P-T December 16th, 2011 citrus Stephanie December 15th, 2011 I love vanilla, it reminds me of baking and I love smelling like a comfort food all day :) Martha December 15th, 2011 Lemongrass! Melissa December 15th, 2011 I love citrus scents, it’s perfect for smelling fresh! Carrie December 15th, 2011 Soft rose with a little musk! Jessica December 14th, 2011 Citrus with a lil fruit mixed in! Queensbird December 14th, 2011 Lavender. Never gets old, always makes me smile. Daniel Rios December 14th, 2011 I am more of a clean scents kind of person. I like clean linen, cotton, Bounce sheets (yes the laundry kind), and some light citrus. The citrus just reminds me of my wife, so that is probably the connection. Jill December 14th, 2011 I love the Little Soap Shop! Last time I went in, I was looking for a lotion to go with my shower gel in Sandalwood Vanilla. She didn’t have any, but made me some on the spot, and I got to choose the amount of scent added. She was so sweet! It smells divine. I am partial to sweet or musky smelling things. Shahna Sherwood December 14th, 2011 Yeah for The Little Soap Shop! Lavender and Rosemary Small Footprints December 14th, 2011 What a lovely & generous giveaway .. thank you so much. I tend to look for lavender … it’s so calming. When I use body products that smell of lavender, I become relaxed and luxuriate in what becomes, for me, a spa treatment. Thanks, again! reducefootprints at gmail dot com Heather December 14th, 2011 Lavendar or peppermint AJ December 14th, 2011 I love a good musky scent, or anything that is really natural smelling. Cookie candy chocolate bar smelling things freak me out. Great giveaway! Stephanie December 14th, 2011 I love scents that nature intended such as citrus in the Summer & Musky Sandalwoods in the Winter. Anything too sweet it overwhelming. Alex December 14th, 2011 I like earthy scents like patchouli. Sarah December 14th, 2011 olive oil, shea, milk – sensual things :) Sonia December 14th, 2011 I like soap that tastes like I want to eat it :D Kat4a December 14th, 2011 Generally stay away from anything too fruity. I like something lightly flowery. Caitlin December 14th, 2011 Favorite soap scent? Something that makes me feel fresh, so citrus or maybe cucumber! Michele December 14th, 2011 The Little Soap Shop is great (and so is the super-friendly and welcoming owner). Hard to choose, but I think my favorite is her Egyptian Chamomile. Laura December 14th, 2011 I love The Little Soap Shop. They are always warm and welcoming and have wonderful products. I’m all about citrus — in fact, The Little Soap Shop’s Citrus Blast shower gel is based on a request I made! caitlin December 14th, 2011 Peppermint or citrus! Ali - YumVeggieBurger December 14th, 2011 Great giveaway! I love everything I’ve bought at the Little Soap Shop, but my absolute favorite has to be the passionfruit rose lip balm. Steph December 14th, 2011 I also tend to change my scents up depending on the season. In the summer, I tend to crave coconut or anything that reminds me of the beach. In winter, I always reach for something vanilla or brown sugar. Julia December 14th, 2011 Grapefruit or ginger or both! Jen Makulowich December 14th, 2011 It depends on the season! Fall: Pumpkin Winter: Gingerbread Spring: Lily Summer: Tropical fruit Lisa December 14th, 2011 So excited for this giveaway! 2011 was the year that my husband and I tossed all of our toxic products that were full of parabens and synthetic fragrances. Since we’ve started, I’ve become obsessed with handmade soap bars and I buy one at every street festival I wander through. I haven’t yet visited The Little Soap Shop, but I’m dying to try their bars. My favorite scents are based on the season. In the summer I love citrusy and coconut-y scents, but in the winter it has to be warm and spicy! Comments are closed.
