Bamboo - Behind the Soap

I sat down this morning to write up a blog post and felt a little stumped.  I stared at my computer screen for probably a good ten minutes before giving up and making a pot of coffee.  I sat outside with Yama and finished up the last of Harry Potter 7 and thought a bit more.  Still nothing.  Came inside... showered, dressed... did my hair.  Mike came home from work an hour earlier than usual (WOOO!) and I watched him and one of his fellow Coasties stack up some wood.  Ran to the store for a few things and came back.  


Still nothing.

Snapped a few silly pictures of the animals and thought about posting them until I realized this is not an animal blog.  :P  Though I LOVE showing them off to you.... if just didn't feel right for today.

And then it dawned on me - share some soap!  I put a new bar of Bamboo soap in the bathroom this morning, of course *after* my shower.  I can't wait to use it!  I of course test out all of my soaps but I haven't used a full size bar of this yet.  It is a fresh and clean scented soap made with real 100% Aloe Vera. The colorant is an AWESOME shimmer mica.... I just love how it looks when I'm mixing the colors before pouring.

This isn't a single-noted "bamboo" scent.  It has a rainforest feel... jasmine and aloe with a wood-type scent mixed in.  It's fresh and clean and really light -- not overpowering.  It's also pretty gender neutral.  Mike took some to work and all the guys loved it!

I promise in the next few weeks I will have more soap to share with you.  It has been a quiet summer on the business front and I really haven't minded.  It was nice having a laid back summer.  I am so excited to get busy again though.  I might even brainstorm with you all a bit on color combinations and designs!

What are some of your favorite fall and winter scents?  Let me know!  :)


P.S. -- If you'd like to see the last "Behind the Soap" post you can find it here! It was awhile ago. :)


  1. Lovely! I love warm fall & winter scents like cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin spice...somewhat earthy scents :)


  2. Wow that soap looks awesome. Thanks for sharing the behind the scenes pictures! I love how you describe the scent of the soap, it really makes me want to use it!
