My mom was always one who liked to keep organic or hand-made soap on display in our family bathroom. They smelled nice and they looked nice too in a decorative basket. She would never let us use those ones though I have received hand-made soaps myself as a gift from time to time. I find hand made soaps great for skin like mine which is prone to break out from chemicals and such used in the average bar soap. They also make a beautiful addition to gift baskets for birthdays, weddings or baby showers.

I was recently introduced to PoppySoap, hand crafted botanical soaps. Poppy Soap Co. is an organic skin care company who believes what's best for your skin should also be safe for the community and the Earth. Their soaps are hand crafted with care and love in small batches with certified organic ingredients. The ingredients used to make these special soaps are beneficial to the body and mind. They have no sulfates, detergents, synthetics, artificial fragrance or colours, no petroleum, phtalates, GMO's or animal products.

The idea of Poppysoap came to founder Lindy LaRoche, who once worked in the medical sales field, when her son was born and she wanted to pursue her own dream of providing products that literally changed the way a person would live the rest of their lives. With her husbands loving support they worked toward a mindfully sustainable and healthy lifestyle to both their family and the environment. It can be difficult to switch from store bought to a more natural skin care product and that is why Lindy has personally created an organic skin care line that will nurture your skin and take care of your body. Not only does PoppySoap give to you but also to your community with "Bar for Bar". By purchasing a PoppySoap bar, a bar is also donated to your local women's shelter.



Lindy was kind enough to send me a 3-pack Holiday Gift Set which included the scents of our choice. The soaps come individually wrapped in a little cloth bag, all three soaps are beautifully gifted in a hand-stitched burlap packaging and wrapped with a bow.


We received Lavender Lemon Grass which is a calming face & body soap, Oatmeal Calendula which is a soothing face & body soap and Orange Patchouli Walnut which is an exfoliating body soap. As you can see from my photo, the bars are a pretty good size. They smell nice and you can tell just by looking at them that they are hand crafted and all natural. Typically I wouldn't want to try these out just because they are so pretty, but I did try out the Oatmeal Calendula which left my face and hands feeling soft and smooth with a nice soft scent. It's nice to know you are using a product that is safe for both family and environment in PoppySoap.
