#IBCOMFEDGPPE Day Four: On a Branch Soaps

Guess what? Today marks the halfway point of our party. That makes me both happy and sad. It's going so quickly. I hope you are loving all the fabulous products and giveaways.

Since we are halfway though this extravaganza, I thought we should take a little break to catch our breath, relax, and rejuvenate. And what better way to do that then with some amazing handmade soaps, bath bombs, and sugar scrub truffles.




Today's giveaway comes from the handmade hands of On a Branch Soaps



Tara of On a Branch Soaps is giving away a bundle of goodies which includes:
 3 Bars of Natural, Handmade Soap, 5 Sugar Scrub Truffles and 3 Lavender Butter Bombs


This picture has me swooning! I seriously want all this stuff and a big ol' claw foot tub right about now. I had Tara tell us a little bit about all these goodies...
The three bars of soap are, from top to bottom, Chai, Midsummer Daydream and Summer Breeze.  The Chai soap is made with chai tea, has a swirl of cocoa powder and is scented with cinnamon and clove essential oils.  Midsummer Daydream is scented with lavender, pink grapefruit and peppermint essential oils with a swirl and a dusting of pink clay.  Summer Breeze is scented with lemon, lavender and pink grapefruit essential oils and topped off with dried lemon slices.  All of my soaps are made by hand in small batches using a traditional soap making process.   
I cure my soaps for 4 weeks to ensure a mild, longer lasting bar of soap.  I do not use any chemical preservatives, synthetic colours or synthetic fragrance oils.  The colours of my soaps are due to the natural ingredients I use butters, oils, clays, botanicals and herbs. 
The Sugar Scrub Truffles are individual solid sugar scrubs for the body.  They are not made from a soap base like traditional solid sugar scrubs.  They are a blend of shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil  that, when gently rubber across warm skin, melt and moisturize the skin while the sugar gently exfoliates the skin, leaving skin super soft.  They are unscented in that I have not added any scent but have a faint chocolate scent due to the cocoa butter. 
The Butter Bombs are a cross between a bath bomb and a bath melt.  Once plopped into a warm bath, they slowly fizz away, releasing a skin-softening blend of shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa butter and mind-soothing lavender essential oil.  


I'm telling you, I want all of that right now.




I'm also loving this foot scrub. Since my feet will be living in flip flops for the next few months I could defiantly use a tub of this stuff!


Simply Lavender Soap

And doesn't this lavender topped soap look amazing!? Love that!

Chai SOAP????????

I absolutely LOVE Chai tea! Who would have thought to put it in SOAP??? Can you imagine waking up to that? Now that would definitely make it easier to get up at 5am (aka the butt crack of dawn) every morning!

And if that weren't enough...two seconds later, I saw the chai tea lip butter.

Swoon.
