We were recently sent some items to review by the wonderful people at "Double Up Farm". They are the ones that sent us the wool dryer balls that we reviewed HERE last Fall.
We are still using them by the way, they are wonderful!
The direct link to them on ETSY is HERE.
She sent us an assortment of scents and a couple of sizes. Opening the box was sensory overload, they smell wonderful! The bars are made using essential oils for fragrance. American Honey was my favorite. 2nd Man loved the Rosemary.
Since they are handmade and of course hand cut, it gives them a nice, rustic appearance. They look great sitting on the edge of the sink at the farm AND in town at the apartment.

As for using them (we were sent some loofah sponges as well, grown on their farm), they lather up with a nice and rich lather. We like it when soap has a nice lather. It's probably the shea butter but we swear it's making our hands softer. Each bar is made with natural ingredients and does not use animal products. As there are no preservatives, you must use within six months. I'm certain that ours won't last long enough to worry about that!
As for ingredients, here it is from their own website:
Ingredients: oil (olive, coconut, palm, avocado, sweet almond), Shea Butter; Sodium Hydroxide (lye), essential oil for scent. Some soaps use an all natural colorant (i.e., mica, coffee, sage)
A huge shout out and of course a big thank you to DOUBLE UP FARM. Please stop by their website (they have a wonderful blog that was started this year) or their ETSY SHOP and say hello. And pick up some handmade soaps or dyer balls or something else...it's always nice to support a small Mom and Pop farm.
