Every once in a while I spend a little time browsing Etsy, as many of us do. Etsy is such a great place to find safer bath goodies and we’ve reviewed some before. My newest find is a store full of handmade soap and spa goods made by Catherine Filippeli. Her store is chock full of bar and guest soaps that look good enough to eat. With scents like Oatmeal Lavender, Ginger Mint Fig Coconut Milk, and Pomegranite Sage you are sure to find something that suits you.
I was attracted to her lovely Honey Lime Bee Soaps full of lime oil and honey to boost circulation and clear congested pores. Plus the unusual shape makes this great for guests or just for something new and fun. Sometimes it’s nice to depart from the usual rectangle bar. Along with lip balm, my other collection habit is bar soap – so I’ll be ordering a few to get me through the summer. Nothing like a shower with a fresh bar of soap that smells like citrus, honey or herbs.
Many of her soaps are made with only essential oils but a few do use other scents. A quick note to Catherine and she confirmed that all of her scents and oils are phthalate free. Sweet!
