Bamboo Shower Puff
A shower puff, in my humble opinion, is the best way to bring your handmade soap to a lather. Did you know that bringing your handmade soap to a fluffy lather with a shower puff saves your soap? Well, it does! You want your precious bar of soap to last as long as possible so treat it right. Soaptree Bodyworks sells the inexpensive synthetic shower puffs, but for some, an all natural product is preferred. At the HSCG conference I came across this wonderful Bamboo Shower Puff. They are amazingly soft and luxurious feeling. The fact that they are made of bamboo really excited me as I love how soft and hearty bamboo fibers are. Besides being soft and luxurious, these puffs can be washed with your towels (and it gets softer with every wash!) which is really important to eliminate any mold or bacteria. In case you are not aware, washing your shower puff, sea sponge or loofah regularly is really important as they harbor pathogens (eew!), so wash yours regularly. Another thing I love about these Bamboo Shower Puffs is that it's made from sustainable fibers. This is a great product for vegans and vegetarians.

Omega Boar’s Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Boar's Hair Shaving Brush 10049Why I like this Omega Boar's Hair Shaving Brush.
- It's a high quality brush made in Italy for professional barbers.
- It's been conditioned to jump start the break-in process. As with all animal hair brushes, boar's hair in particular, the break-in process can take up to two weeks. It is said that Boar's hair brushes that aren't conditioned stink for the first 15 or so shaves. This conditioning has eliminated some of the typical aroma from a fresh brush
- Boar's hair brushes exfoliate the skin. Unlike badger hair which is very soft, boar's hair helps to eliminate some of the ingrown hairs through exfoliation.
- It's affordable. No one should go broke buying a shaving brush. Boar's hair is actually less expensive than a synthetic fiber brush.
- Unlike badger hair, boar's are not killed just for their hair. I love animals and don't believe in killing an animal just for it's fur. Badgers are treated as pests in China and are exterminated 'supposedly' under regulation. Their hair is collected for shaving brushes.

Toss the shower puff into a bra washing bag or a pillow case that is tied and add it to your regular wash. ** PLEASE NOTE: Handmade soap will last a longer and stronger if kept dry between uses.

Recycled Wood Soap Rest
3 inches by 4.125 inches by .75 inches thick Made with natural reclaimed hickory wood, an exceptionally hard and durable wood, ideal for a wood product that will be subject to water and moisture. Hickory also has beautiful colors that are typically light, but will vary from nearly white to dark chocolaty brown. These dishes have been meticulously hand sanded on all surfaces, edges and corners. Each top plank on the dish has been rounded over, making them very aesthetically pleasing to look at. The rounded over top planks also allows water to quickly drain completely through the dish and away from your soap so the soap lasts longer. These soap dishes have been finished on all surfaces, top, bottom and sides, with a semi-gloss spray finish. The finish on all surfaces protects wood from water penetration as well as enhances the wood's natural beautiful colors. This soap saver is an attractive addition to the bathroom and will pay for itself by saving your soap bars.
