At the beginning of this season, I realized that I had just about run out of those little pre-packaged hotel soaps. My pack of them had lasted five years. To be honest, I was never happy with them. They looked, well, like pre-packaged hotel soaps. I have other bath items, like shampoo and shower gel, which are spa products that I love (although I hate all the packaging - too much plastic). But the soaps were nothing special. So I decided to take a different tack.
I bought bulk olive oil soap, made in Marsailles of 72% olive oil. I am breaking the blocks down into small pieces and wrapping them in unbleached paper and raffia. A solution that fits our concept. A beautiful product, and a lovely, pure touch.
