We bought some soaps in France and decided to make cotton sacks to wrap them for our web-shop...the sacks, decorated by tranfers, can be used, filled with lavander flowers, to scent drawers , or to contain jewels or toilette products...I like hanging them from shelves too...I find them very decorative!
The Marseilles soap is fantastic for body care and for laundry too...it is traditionally green or white. The white soap is made with palm oil, the green with at least 50% olive oil. Both varieties are exquisite, ultra-moisturizing skin care. Marseille Soap is recommended by dermatologists throughout the world for dry skin and other ailments. Its incredible purity and moisturizing properties make it ideal for sensitive skins. In France it has been trusted for generations to cleanse everything from linens to little faces.
The Aleppo soap, all-natural product, is world famous for its purity and skin cleansing properties. Won't dry out sensitive or dry winter skin, and produces a nice, rich lather. It's hand made, unscented, and with all natural ingredients - lots of olive oil! It's great for anything - fine hand washables, bath, face - even sensitive baby's skin. You can even wash your hair with this soap!
...don't you think they're a nice gift idea??
