By which I mean, not anything profound about death and rebirth or any such, but simply that I've brought back a couple of my favourite soaps.
I'd originally intended to produce a whole line of Japanese-inspired soaps, most of which didn't wind up working, but the Green Tea Citrus
soap was a definite win.
Green tea reduces inflammation and rejuvenates skin cells, and may aid in easing acne and psoriasis in your skin. And the citrus oils -- orange and grapefruit -- combine in a manner reminiscent of the Japanese yuzu fruit.
It's got a great smell, and each bar is speckled with green tea leaves for gentle exfoliation.
That's not the only soap to return from the dustbin of time, though -- I've also brought back one of the first soaps I ever made.
"Are you going to Scarborough Faire?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine”
Scarborough Faire, trad.
I remember the first batch of this soap I ever made -- I'd set it out in my bedroom to cure, since I didn't have anywhere else set up yet, and it smelled SO GOOD that every night I'd lay down, breathe the green herbal scent of the soap, and promptly get up and get a snack.
...I didn't say it was a good idea, I probably gained five pounds while it sat there, but it's still pretty funny.
It's good stuff, and an early favourite with my customers, and I'm glad it's back. Scarborough Faire Soap
