Before December ends and the monthly posts begin, I wanted to take a moment to shout out a small business in New Mexico that is offering amazing products and a company that you should definitely check out!
One of my NYE resolutions this year is to reduce waste. As much as I can, I want to eliminate single use plastics, like straws and plastic grocery bags. I am going to refuse a bag when I don't really need one. I am going to try not to use makeup wipes also, which will probably be my toughest challenge.
Another thing I want to do is try to use solid shampoo and conditioner bars and more bar soaps instead of shower gels and shampoos in plastic bottles. It might seem like a small step, but if everyone does a small step, it leads to big results.
Also - I want to support more small businesses in 2019 - something I try to do more and more every year.
Anyway, here we are! My friend Karen recommended Haípažaža pȟežúta soaps on Facebook and I had to give them a try! I ordered two Sweet Grass (left) and two Cedar Wood bars (right) to give as gifts...well, 3 of them. One is for me :)
Talk about all natural - these soaps are literally hand made. On the website and in Facebook posts, I've read the following: "This handcrafted soap and shampoo bar is made without any coconut oil. In this Luxurious bar you will find skin loving ingredients such as RSPO Sustainable Organic Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Sunflower Oil, Tallow, Greek Yogurt, Lye, and Kaolin Clay. This bar is guaranteed to treat your skin with it's all natural ingredients, along with giving you a smooth, rich creamy lather, loads of bubbles, and leaving your skin feeling extremely moisturized. Enjoy this long lasting bar.
We make all of our soaps by hand and in small batches, so the picture above shows a visual representation of how your bar will look. Keep in mind that each bar is unique and the color, shape, and design may be different from bar to bar and batch to batch.
This soap is also gentle enough to be used on your precious little ones." This blurb was taken from the description of a new soap in Bubblegum flavor!
In addition to my purchase, I was sent a few complimentary samples to try and they are all impressive! The Lavendar one is light and aromatic. The Aloha Waikiki is extra moisturizing and smells like vacation, as does the Coconut bar. Each has a good weight, smells delightful but not overpowering, and can be used on the body, in your hair, and on your baby (if you have one...might not want to try it on someone else's baby...).
Check out the full line of products HERE and let her know Lacey sent you.
Support small businesses!
