Castille soap Giveaway - now finished.
It's spring, and with the sun still low in the sky you can see all the dust and dirt in your home, very clearly. Yuck! Roll on the summer when we can stay outside as much as possible, and ignore the messy inside stuff.
Instead of cleaning, I made a batch of Castille soap - main ingredient is Olive oil. It's lightly scented with orange oil, and lathers beautifully. Commercial soaps have the glycerin that is a natural by-product of soap making removed, so they may be quite drying. My soap leaves your skin feeling very soft. See Photo above - I could probably improve the unmolding and cutting part :-)
It's also great for felting with, as we discovered at last weeks felting workshop.
So I'm giving away a couple of bars of the soap, and will throw in a few packets of seeds I've saved myself, if you're interested. More about that kind of thing at my gardening blog.
