The 22nd Etsy Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
The 22nd Etsy Giveaway


Today's Etsy Giveaway is for a bar of handmade natural Lavender Soap by Soap Werks! ($6)

I don't know about you, but lavender is one of my all time favorite scents :)

Here's some info on it:

Our soap is made from all-natural ingredients (coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax, lye, herbs, and essential oils). The bar weighs 5.5 oz. We wrap the bars in handmade papers and wire--perfect for gift-giving. Lavender is a wonderful, calming scent. We use only high quality lavender essential oil and add dried lavender. The soap is nicely moisturizing and gentle enough for the face. The soap is wrapped in purple paper.
