Just this morning, I have discovered another wonderful soap maker in Edinburgh.
Quote from her Facebook page:
“Lemongrass and Lime is my best seller so far this Spring. Apart from smelling zingy and fresh, the essential oils are gently and naturally antiseptic and anti-bacterial, and are also known to be soothing, healing, uplifting and revitalising, – great for stress and depression. And I have just made a big fresh batch, now curing under fleecy blankets on my table. Plenty to go around. : – )”
Okay, now that just sounds amazing …. lemongrass and lime …. zingy and fresh. That sounds like a soap I would love to have.
