Dragonfly Soaps {Review and Giveaway}

   I think I have a new indulgence. It is homemade natural soaps. A while back I won some homemade goats milk soap on a blog giveaway and I just loved it. Not to long ago I became aware of Dragonfly Soaps and they agreed to let me do a review and giveaway here on my blog. I got to choose 2 of their soaps that they sent to me so that I could try them out and I am totally loving these soaps too! They are so much more fun to use than the ones you can buy at a big box store!

Oatmeal Almond Scented Soap
   When I went to Dragonfly Soaps website it was so much fun to browse through all their different varieties! They have some that they call "Almost Edibles" and I would love to try everyone in that category (except perhaps the Fisherman's Lure as it is geared for men and I don't do much fishing).  I did request the Chai Soap and I love the smell of it. When I was using it in the shower last night it made me crave a cup of Chai tea so bad that I was almost tempted to dissolve some and try drinking it. :-) Using it in the shower smelled just like sipping a steaming cup of Chai Tea. 

Peppermint Ice Scented Soap
I would love to try this one too!
Another category of soaps that they have is called "Mysterious and Earthy Scents". We decided to try Forest Floor from this category. It is called the naturalists soap of choice which is fitting as I got it for Mara and she is definitely turning into a little naturalist. When we went to the state park the other day she had a wonderful time visiting with the naturalist there (and he was impressed with her knowledge of plants) and decided that maybe she could be a part time naturalist in addition to being an author. Back to the soap.... I actually got it for Mara as it said the antiseptic oils in it are said to be helpful to troubled skin. Mara has trouble with eczema and we are always looking for things that will help. She said that she liked using it and I know I thought it smelled pretty good!

Dragonfly Soaps also has categories "Lavenders and Flowers", "Workhorse Soaps" and "Unscented". I think I would enjoy trying any of their soaps.

Some other info about Dragonfly Soaps that I thought was neat were:
  • All soap is handcrafted in small batches.
  • The colourings and scents are from herbs, clays, chlorophyll, spices, flowers, seeds, mineral pigments or essential oils.
  • They use oils that nourish the skin.
  • They try to reuse and recycle with their packaging as well as their soap trimmings, etc.
Would you like to try some Dragonfly Soaps?

I received soap at no cost to me for purposes of reviewing. I was not required to write a positive review and I was not in any other way compensated for writing this review.

I've seen others try this soap, too and this is the first I visited their site! What neat scents! If I could try any it would be 60's Vanilla, Peppermint Ice, and Old Fashioned Lavender.

I've never tried homemade soaps, but have wanted to of late. The varieties look wonderfully appealing!

As a mint-lover, I would have to choose Peppermint Ice, Spearmint Poppyseed Wake-up, and then some Lemon Chiffon for something a little different.

Twinkle Toes said...

I think I would try Peppermint Ice, Cocoa Butter Bar Soap and Chai Soap...They sound the yummiest :D

Sue D said...
