So here we are all packaged and ready to go! The bride wanted something simplistic but with a "gift" feel to it, and I couldn't think of anything better than brown paper packages tied up with string....yes, I'm corny, but hey...
I filled each bag with loose peppermint tea then dropped the soaps inside. They smell wonderful-not too strong and not too light. One side is labeled with ingredients and my website (at the bride's request), and the other side is a label with the bride and groom's name and their wedding date. I'm pretty pleased. I hope the bride is too!

|'scuse the bad pics, took them on my iphone...|
Let me tell all you Etsy sellers something: If you don't have your location listed in your profile, you could be losing money! I say that because about 25% of my sales are local, and they're big ones because the shipping is cheap, and people truly want to support local sellers and retailers. With that being said, a lovely young bride-to-be found me on Etsy last week, and we immediately struck up a dialogue. She's getting married next month, and she needed 32 soap favors for her out of town guests. No problem! And these soaps aren't just little 1 oz squares, but full-sized bars. She wanted something really eco-chic and natural, so I scented them in a very unisex, pthalate-free blend of mint & herbs and added peppermint tea leaves throughout. This soap is so light and refreshing-you know I had to save a bar for myself!
Up next...the packaging. It too will be very eco-friendly and "clean". Pics of those coming next week:)
Oh yeah, it's not too late to enter my giveaway...I'm just sayin'...you could win some fab-ass soaps!
