$5 for a bar of soap?
Well, you see, it started with a free sample. The CEO of Organix-South sent me a sample of their lovely Neem toothpaste for an International Toothpaste Museum review. Besides the toothpaste, she sent me several hotel-bar-sized samples of their soap. I got hooked.
When the samples finally got spent, I was desperate for some more. So when a few extra dollars were given to yours truly for Christmas, what did I go out and spend the money on? A bar of soap!
How could I justify spending so much for a bar of soap?
1) The smell is amazing. My shower each morning is now something I look forward to – just because of that smell! (I must disclose that Heather doesn’t like the smell. But it doesn’t wear off on the user – so she is still happy to hang around me!) I have a very weak sense of smell, and this soap has the ability to awaken my nasal powers unlike anything else – if only for a brief second.
2) I have really dry skin. During winter in dry Colorado, some days find me wanting to soak in a bathtub full of lotion. (Never done it – but I’ve thought about trying!) This soap seems to make a huge difference for me.
I’m not advocating your buying this soap. But I thought you’d like to know why I bought that bar over Christmas break.

Very cool blog, Paul. One of the internet’s best-kept secrets. I know you mentioned it in a newsletter at some point, but I was too lazy to check it out at the time and then forgot. I’ll bookmark it.
Thanks Tim! Glad to find you here. And I’ll be checking into yours more often too…
Amazing. Your writing is so personal and real. I’ll read whatever you want to write about.
I’m always on the look-out for a sensitive-skin friendly soap. Folks who don’t have dry skin have no idea how bothersome it can be! (ahem, dave!) I’m trying castille soaps now – Dr. Bronners Lavender. It has an amazing scent also – very true lavender.
