Happy July 1st! Just 4 more days until summer officially starts in Seattle!
For some reason, I always thought I would never do a giveaway. I guess because I just wanted to focus on running (or lately, whining about how I can't run because I'm a ding-a-ling who likes to push too hard at times and end up getting hurt!). But recently my friend Ada, who is a WAHM, created something great that I wanted to share. So, I ordered several & am going to give away to you...
|Goat milk sore muscle soap|
I scented this goat milk soap with Sore Muscle Synergistic Essential Oil. Arnica extract oil and organic Aduki beans were added. It is believed that Arnica is beneficial for muscle aches , bruises, swelling, and inflammation from insect bites. I have used it for many years, even in homeopathy sphere balls.
Ada is "Soap Much Love, LLC" and makes natural soaps, bath bombs, salt scrubs/bars, and sugar scrubs in her kitchen. Her philosophy is to only use ingredients that are safe for her kids to be around, which is a big plus to me too. Her soaps are based on glycerine or goat milk and are completely detergent and sulfate free. You can see many examples at her Etsy shop, Craft Cafe shop, and on Facebook or here...
I love these soaps because I love supporting my friend's business, I love that she's a WAHM, they are beautiful, smell delicious, and are non-drying, and I love that I can identify most all the ingredients. I've been keeping a stash around to use at home (my son is extra motivated to wash using her crayon and Lego shaped soaps!) and also as last-minute party or hostess gifts.
Two weeks from today (JULY 15), I will draw three names of people who leave a comment on this post. Let me know your favorite sore muscle remedy. If you want extra entries, you can announce this give-away in other ways (if you tweet, copy me: @almamcf and @SoapMuchLove). You can also check out Soap Much Love's Facebook site and say hello to Ada and tell her I sent you. Whatever you do, just leave me a comment & let me know.
Excuse me, I think I'm going to go take a soak...!
