All are a combo of olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil with 100% essential oils, no FOs.

I love homemade soaps. And knit/crochet wash cloths. I crochet mine own and making some for the holidays for gifts.

Susan Johnson July 28, 2011 at 6:00 pm

The give away items are wonderful!!!

I have dial up internet, so while the pics were loading the washcloth looked like some unusual mound of noodles. I was shocked when I got the whole pic and saw it was a beautiful hand cloth. It’s beautiful. And soap to top it off.

You’re may favorite blog!!

Barbara Marlow July 28, 2011 at 6:44 pm

I love to crochet but haven’t made dishcloths. I really want to try to make one though. I love soaps!! Especially homemade ones!

angie July 28, 2011 at 7:01 pm

these soaps look lovely! i’d love to win! thanks!

Deb Stoppkotte July 28, 2011 at 7:06 pm

Wonderful soaps and lovely washcloth! Love the idea of using poppy seed in a soap, hadn’t heard of the honey/litsea cubeba combo but it looks great! I love your Little House in the Suburbs (and am really glad to have read your blog about pruning the blackberries – made it easy to go out and prune; can’t wait for those berries next year!). Thanks

JD July 28, 2011 at 7:12 pm

Any of those soaps sound great!

gayle July 28, 2011 at 7:46 pm

The soap sounds lovely and homemade dish towel!!! This may inspire me to knit one!

Jennifer S. July 28, 2011 at 7:51 pm

TL & Ivory! I absolutely love your site! I have sent so many people to you! I love the inspiration you put out for all of us readers! Living in the mountains and loving not only the outdoors but the fact that we can have our own garden, chickens, turkeys and all that comes with it! Your gardening tips are a favorite of mine! I walk outside barefoot all the time, I garden barefoot and just picked my potatoes coming out with Hobbit feet. These soaps would do marvels to help keep my little piggys clean after a long day outdoors! Thank you so much!

Jeanette July 28, 2011 at 7:53 pm

I love soap! Thanks!

Beth July 28, 2011 at 7:54 pm

I have never used a knit rag. I have tried knitting, but my left hand just won’t cooperate. Making my own soap is also on my list of things to learn to do.

Amy July 28, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Oh! These look so lovely! I knit & crochet washcloths too – I love how they make good face-scrubbers.

rose July 28, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Getsy Cleary-James July 28, 2011 at 9:04 pm

so today was one of those days and I wanted to just pull up the covers and hide from the day…but instead I got up and aimlessly commenced with my day…it didn’t get better but thankfully…knock on all of the wood I have in the house…so here I am reading a few blogs and I decide what the heck…ever body should be able to wish for a silver lining right…and nice soap with a nice cloth well that is a silver lining when you have one of those days…hoping that perhaps ….oh well…if I can’ t win soap…hopefully tomorrow I will fill like lifting the covers

deedee July 28, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Stephanie A. July 28, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I love that cloth, and I love these soaps! Nothing says “mmmmm…..fresh and clean” as well as handmade soap and cloth. Thanks for the chance to win these. 🙂

Herbi July 28, 2011 at 10:29 pm

This sorta thing always gets my attention-I just revel in the scents of fabulous natural soaps. One of the things that truly makes me happy : )

bev barron July 28, 2011 at 10:55 pm

those soaps must smell marvelous. i love handmade soaps.

Tami July 28, 2011 at 11:15 pm

Holy cow! You have a ton of folks fighting over homemade soap. I’d love to be thrown into the ring.


Millicent July 29, 2011 at 12:01 am

Great giveaway! do you have the recipes for the soaps?

Nicole July 29, 2011 at 12:38 am

I love your blog, and have been very inspired to try many things. I haven’t gotten around to them all quite yet, but in the meantime, it would be wonderful to partake of some amazing-looking homemade soaps. If I win I can use the soaps with your homemade cloth and some of my own, too. 🙂

OneGreenMama July 29, 2011 at 3:05 am

I love reading your blog. And I’m jealous of your soapmaking abilities. 🙂

ramona potter July 29, 2011 at 6:13 am

Love homemade soaps and using a handmade wash cloth. Thank you.

Shannon July 29, 2011 at 7:12 am

Thank you, TL! The soap cuts are beautiful! I love homemade soaps, but I only attempt glycerin bases (I know, I know). I do hope I win, as I love the knit dishcloths (and as I am COMPLETELY inept at knitting), I do not have one (sniff). Thank you for the opportunity!

Lex July 29, 2011 at 8:06 am

I just stumbled upon this site a few weeks ago, and I am loving it!!! Homemade soap is awesome, but expensive at our local farmer’s market. I am working up the courage to one day try making a batch.

Kris July 29, 2011 at 11:04 am

Enjoy the heck out of your website and would jump up and down repeatedly if chosen for this giveaway. You’d know because it would cause the Richter scale to register… 🙂

Keep up the great work girls!!

Kimberly Cain July 29, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I have actually made my own soap and all because of website. It’s perfect for someone like me who wants healthy ways to manage my life.

Jane Smith July 29, 2011 at 12:16 pm

What delicious sounding soaps. Although they might be a bit dangerous around my toddler. Even I am tempted to eat them!

Kay July 29, 2011 at 12:51 pm

I can’t get enough of home-made soaps! and handmade washcloths? too cool!
love your blog!

Brenda Wicker July 29, 2011 at 1:36 pm

I love homemade soaps and I love your website!

Grace July 29, 2011 at 1:55 pm

I love the look of these soaps!

Shawn July 29, 2011 at 4:25 pm

I love your blog and would LOVE your soaps and washcloth. I rarely keep anything I make myself, so it would be a real treat!

Shari July 29, 2011 at 4:39 pm

I have always wanted to make soap, the thought of knowing all the ingredients that my family and I am using is comforting. Your soaps looks lovely! I would love to win one!

ikkinlala July 29, 2011 at 5:16 pm

The soap looks great!

Linda July 29, 2011 at 5:25 pm

During the hot days of summer nothing cools and refreshes like a shower. This lovely wash cloth and handcrafted soap would be so soothing.
ps…I have a birthday in August…

Kim July 29, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Have been using homemade soaps exclusively for the past year, and love the way it makes my skin feel. On my retirement bucket list – learn to make soap.

Heather G. July 29, 2011 at 6:43 pm

The wash cloth does look like Ramen noodles! A good thing in my opinion!

laura July 29, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Kimberly July 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm

What an awesome give-away! Loving your site and leaving my comment, so I get a chance to win. Would love to know how to make them…such a nice gift for someone (esp. ME!)

Pam R. July 29, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Thanks so much for this giveaway! The soaps sound wonderful and the dishcloth looks very nice. I really do enjoy all the posts on here and learned so much about keeping chickens before we got ours. We live WAY out in the country and have roosters so our chicken count has went from 5 to 55 in a year 🙂 I’m still wondering what we’re going to do with all of them come winter. I’m hoping to get a much larger and permanent chicken coop built 🙂

JavaLady July 29, 2011 at 11:10 pm

These look Faaabulous Dawhlin ! I want the instructions for making the dish rag, even if I don’t win !!

kathy July 30, 2011 at 9:52 am

I would like to win soaps and dishcloth. I love handmade soaps, and the soap with dots (I assume poppy seeds) looks very interesting.

kathy July 30, 2011 at 9:53 am

The spotted soap looks fascinating, and I’m assuming those are poppy seeds. They’re fabulous in sweet rolls.

kathy July 30, 2011 at 9:55 am

I want those soaps, and the dishrag. I do NOT know what further comment moderation you might need.
