Soap Giveaway!!!

I am having a giveaway to christen my new Etsy shop! I am going to be selling my soap,which I have been told is pretty good!  I am going to giveaway 4 bars so there will be four winners. All you have to do to enter is go visit my shop and leave me a comment on which bar you would like to try. That's it! Easy Peasy!  If you would be so kind as to do a post about my giveaway on your blog or Facebook leave me three more comments saying you did and I will give you three more chances to win!


Let me tell you all a little about my soap. I started making my soap out of desperation that only a mother can have. If  The Boy had been a junior super hero he would have been "Rash Boy"!  I tried every soap out there from so called mild to organic. No luck. He remained Rash Boy. After some research I discovered I could make my own soap and put nothing in it but skin nourishing oils. So I did. And Bamm! Rash Boy was defeated and  became a regular boy once again! Two of the soaps I am offing right off have herbal infused oils,one calendula and the other peppermint. Oh,and a chamomile made with chamomile tea.There are no dyes or preservatives  in my soaps or lard .   Just skin healthy oils  and fragrance. The color differences are from the herbs,oils and fragrances. All my soap is cold process,which means good old fashioned lye soap! Don't worry,there is no lye in it when you use it, they lye turns the oils to soap then it is gone. My soap is not drying and lathers well for homemade soap. I am not good at "tooting my own horn" so this is a little hard! I will just say we like it and everyone that has used it says it's great!

I wish you the bestest of luck but as a goat I don't need any soap. And the publicist says she is up to her eyeballs...

She put you in my circle on etsy though...

Melodie said...

Thank you Pricilla!

The Peppermint Avocado sounds LUSHISH!!! I would love to try a bar of that.

I do love to use handmade soap, so much nicer on the skin.

I like the calendula tangerine! Congrats on your Etsy shop :-) Hmmm. I have a rash boy that was just at the allergist yesterday....and we spent way more on prescriptions (with insurance) than the cost of soap!

I will toot your horn for you!! I am a believer in homemade soap and I can see by your photos that they are gorgeous also!! Wow!
I'll do just that, blog about you and etsy too! Anxious to see how the etsy thing goes too. I can't keep up with making enough to sell through the summer at the Farmers Markets as it is...Etsy will have to wait until I retire. I think its a great tool to hawk your wears..LUCK to you!!

Wow, those all look really good. I have to say I'd like the peppermint avocado one though. Thanks for the chance at winning!

Michaele said...

Best of luck to you! Soap making is tons of fun!

Texan said...

Girly you know I think you should sell your soaps!! I know just how fabulous it is first hand! For those that read this comment I have a niece that is like Melodie's son. Bless her heart she can't use much of anything on her skin soaps, lotions, shampoos well the list just goes on and on. She can use Melodie's soap, no rash, no irritation no bumps!! She loves it! She finds it just like me to be moisturizing and just amazing! Her DH uses it too so I have to send enough for both of them now!

You really should try one bar. That's all it will take and you will only want this soap from now on! Its all I use now!

Yes Melodie is my friend but before we became the BFF's we are now, I loved Melodie's soap!

Ooh count me in! I would love to try the clean laundry flavor. (I also favorited your shop on my etsy)

the wild magnolia said...

You bet I'm in on this one. I made your Etsy a favorite and two bars of soap favorites.

I'm off to blog about you and your soap now.

the wild magnolia said...

I'm back. I created a post just to announce your giveaway and the Texan's recommendation.

Give it a view if you will.

I am so excited for you and proud of you , and for you!!! Great idea.

I ❤ this idea. Best Wishes!!!!

I know plenty of folks who could use some of your soap. Curious to see what the clean sheets soap smells like. I love clean sheet smell!
Good luck with your new business!

Your soap is beautiful, Melodie. Not entering, as I do have alot of my own -- good luck to everyone who enters. :)

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Hi Melodie- good for you! This is great news. I'm signing up- we've got rashy family issues, too.
Heading over to take a look, but wanted you wish you all the best with your shop- you go girl!
