SCRUB-A-DUB-DUB, I HAVE THE BEST SOAP IN THE TUB

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I love to brag about the cool people I meet online and the great things they make. Today I want to introduce you to

Donna

Donna very kindly gave me
permission to use photos from her blog.

who lives and blogs at The Poor Farm.

Once a month, Donna features Saponification Saturday on her blog, when she has her soap for sale, and let me tell you, it is the God-blessingest-best soap ever (if you don't remember "saponification," think about that darn chemistry class you had to take).


These are not some namby-pamby, teeny-tiny bars of soap that cost a fortune and are gone in a week. No, these are serious bars of soap that will last you a good long while and are a steal at $5 a bar, plus shipping and handling.

In fact, I hope that people who receive Christmas gifts from me are not reading this post, but if you are reading, now you know that you will open your gift on Christmas morning to find soap made with all-natural ingredients.

Currently, Donna has these soaps available (she'll sell out fast, so hurry up and order while you can by emailing her at opies99@gmail.com): peppermint, lavender/Geranium Rose, eucalyptus, and coffee.

When I ordered some peppermint soap, the mail carrier left the box on my front steps. As soon as I opened the door, I could smell the peppermint. It is luscious.

This soap makes a great, unique gift.

I wish you Happy Soap Shopping at The Poor Farm.

And if you receive a Christmas box from me, please forget that you read this post and act surprised when you open your gift!


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

P.S. I didn't receive anything in return for writing this post. I wrote it because Donna makes way cool soap.

  2. Nice! I love fancy soap. It doesn't make people go "oh you must think I'm stinky" when you gift someone soap, does it??

    1. Giving soap definitely means that you think someone is stinky, so be sure to give soap to your boss. tee-hee

      And some cologne.

  9. I find it interesting that the ancient Romans conquered the known world but never invented soap.

  13. Rub a dub dub
    three men in a tub.
    All thinking the soap is swell.
    They all have a look,
    then one of them spoke,
    "No girl? Hey, what the hell?"

  14. Okay, I looked up saponification and still not sure what it means:)

    1. It's the chemical reaction that creates soap. Long ago, I memorized the formula for a chemistry test. I forgot it immediately after I took the test.

  15. I've recently discovered I really do like pretty smelling soaps. Took long enough... Slowly, very slowly, kicking these tom-boy tendencies. =)

  16. Hi Janie -- I saw your comment over at The Gods Are Bored. To follow a blog that doesn't have a "Follow" button, copy the general blog address from the top, go back to your own blog, hit the pencil icon beside "blogs I follow" on your Reading List page, then hit the Add button that comes up -- it will give you a blank box that says URL -- paste the address into that and then follow through on the prompts.
