Sandalwood & Charcoal Soap $7.50 per bar
If you like this soap…buy multiple bars because it will not be repeated! This soap is another that is a result of me experimenting in the kitchen and using up extra ingredients that I had accumulated. I had a number of oils and fragrance oils that were not enough to use by themselves in a batch of soap so I mixed them together to create a unique soap. This soap smells so good! It is slightly floral with a hint of spice that just makes it a perfect clean scent. The fragrances I used are in the ingredient list. The added activated charcoal and sandalwood powder make for a wonderfully hard bar of soap.
