This giveaway has ended.
About a month ago, I was sent a small package from Tierra Verde Soaps in Lubbock, Texas. Inside was a bar of handmade natural soap, which I have been using ever since I opened the package. This soap, which is still in my shower, was labeled Barley and Hops (Pale Ale & Honey) and contained barley flakes, honey, and Santa Fe pale ale. Sweet – a soap made from one of my favorite microbrews! It smells great and works really well, both of which are important aspects of a soap in my book. The basic formula for all their soaps is olive oil, organic, sustainably-farmed palm oil, lye, filtered water, coconut oil and additives such as goat’s milk, butters, clay, orange peel, oatmeal, barley, vegetable juice, fruit juice, various milks, and even beer. Take a look at how nice their stuff looks:
The colors of the soaps are the result of the essential oils themselves, clays, oxides, charcoal, herbs, vegetable or fruit purees etc., and only quality essential oils are used – no synthetic scents. The packing is minimal and/or recycled. And the best part? The soaps are handmade by a mom who considers her soaps her “functional art”, so you are supporting a small artisan business by purchasing from her. I am all for the small independent business owner over faceless corporations, so I love what Michele stands for. If you are interested in seeing what other soaps she makes, head over to Tierra Verde Soaps and check out her beautiful work. There is also free shipping for readers from Wednesday February 17 – Saturday February 20 in case you feel like picking up a bar or two. In the meantime, however, she has given me 2 bars of her soap to give away to some lucky readers of The Good Human!
