Meet "Tree Hugger"- An Arboreal Delight!


Tree Hugger-an arboreal blend of eucalyptus and cedar perfect for any lover of trees. This blend smells like cedar after a rain; smoky, spicy and slightly sweet with a hint of camphor.

This soap is colored with cocoa powder, a bit of  td and the real experimental part was the wheat grass powder. In my head the plan was to have the green be a bit more green, but I think the pea green still works.

This beauty will be ready around October 20-and there are only a few. If you'd like to reserve one-drop me a line. :-))

Love the natural colours! Wow. When I use cocoa powder, it turns brown! Yours looks like an earthy reddy browny something that is so beautiful. Lovely looking soap! xo Jen

@Jen,Thanks so much.I had planned for the green to be a bit more green-but this was the first time with wheat grass so I wasn't sure how much.I'm happy with it though.
