John's Soap

The weather in Toronto lately has been hot and sometimes humid.   Me being a spoiled Torontonian, I find myself missing the pre-summer days when it's dry and cool.  (But we ALL complain about the cold for the rest of the year!)

When it's hot and sticky, I go to my summer soaps, and this one is By Far my favorite!

I call it John's Soap because Hubby's co-worker John asks for the same one every once a while.  I don't blame him for not interested in trying my other soaps, because I'm in love with these soaps too!  

I just love the way they lather on my skin, so rich and so bubbly!  When I first started making soaps, I thought I would have to put up with the notirously poor lathering power of handmade soaps, and the first time I used these bars, I said to myself, "I'll have to make them again!"  

Now that these bars are almost 8 months old, they are even more amazing to use in the shower.  But I'll be a little skeptic in terms of using them in the winter.  The winter here is pretty dry, and I'll have to wait and see how moisturizing they can be.  Meanwhile, I'll just enjoy the bubbles!


  1. I love the simplicity of these soaps... and they ways they are cut. I also love that in almost every one of your soaps, you add something original... little white circles at the bottom, a slight swirl on the top, soap shaving swirls... I love it! You are clearly creative and original! xo Jen

  2. Thank you Jen! One reason I always try something different each time is so I can remember which soap is which, ha!
