You all know I love supporting small businesses. I'm also a huge fan of homemade items. I love buying them, and giving them as gifts. I think it makes them all the more special. I've been using homemade soaps from September Lane Soap Company for awhile now. Kirsten, the shop owner, is a pharmacist. Soaps made by a pharmacist! I was intrigued!
Initially, the first soap that caught my attention was her Sick Day Soap Bar. I was previously using a store brand, and was unhappy with the ingredients. September Lane Soap Company's Sick Day soap uses soothing lavender, healing calendula extract, and congestion relieving eucalyptus essential oil. It is all natural and does NOT contain Menthol, so it is safe for children of any age -- super important! Whenever my boys are feeling under the weather, I prepare a special bath for them with this soap. Lincoln will actually ask for it now! He calls it his "feel better" soap :)
I also use September Lane Soap Co. soaps for myself. I am currently using the Island Coconut soap. Its tropical scent reminds me of the beach...which I appreciate during these cold winter months!
I also no longer use shaving gel. Instead I use September Lane Soap Company's Unscented Shea Butter & Carrot Facial Soap. Yes, it is "technically" made for your face, but I LOVE it for shaving! I find it gives me a smoother shave, AND there are no hidden nasty chemicals! Just the basic ingredients -- all you need!
For all of you with babies, there's a perfect soap for your precious little one. September Lane Soap Company's Baby Calendula Soap, made with an olive oil base, with a lavender-chamomile scent, calendula extract, and calendula petals, is perfect for sensitive, baby soft skin! My boys are huge fans of the Turtle soap! Pear & Berry Scented organic soap with blue jojoba beads. Turtle toy at the end!!
Now for the part you've been waiting for...
