Ginger's Garden Review & Giveaway - Closed

                                  
Congratulations winner #25. I will contact you via email.
I came across a great website called Ginger's Garden that sells Artisian Soap, Skin, & Body Care. I love all natural scented soaps. I have extremely sensitive skin so all of my soap needs to be all natural or my skin will flare up. I received the Coconut Neroli handmade soap & the Stressless Fizzy Bath Salts. I love the way the soap makes my skin feel and the smell is outstanding. I also tried the bath salts and loved the way it softens my skin. The soaps are a must try!!

Get to Know Ginger

I was born in Prague, Czech Republic. I am a third generation Aromatherapist, herbalist, soapmaker & skin care manufacturer. As a child I remember grandma making soap outside in a big kettle over an open fire. The lye was made by pouring ashes over rain water which my grandma collected during the rainy season. When she had enough lye, she would suspend an egg to see if the lye was strong enough. If the egg sank, the lye was too strong. If the egg just barely floated on the top of the water, the lye wasn't strong enough. But, if the egg submerged just half way, the lye was just right.
She collected grease drippings in the kitchen in an empty coffee can. This soap was mostly used to wash laundry and dirty dishes. Our clothes were washed in a tin tub with a wooden washboard.

I am following in their footsteps. Nowadays we have it easy. Different types of oils, butters, pre-made lye or fragrant oils are more readily available. I still think of magic when I make lotion with yellow or green oils & it comes out white, or when my soap comes to trace, so I can pour it in my mold.

***The good news is that Ginger's Garden is going to give 1 lucky winner one Artisian soap bar of either Stressless (soothing light floral), Rosemary Mint or Rice Bar soap just for entering this giveaway! Good Luck!
