A few days ago, the mailman came stomping up my front steps. I was very happy to see him, not only because he was carrying a luxuriously large package, but also because he did not try to shove it into my two-sizes-too-small mailbox. Not that he’s ever done that before.
Getting packages in the mail is one of my favorite things. It doesn’t matter if it’s a surprise of if it’s something I ordered myself. Seeing a brown box with my name on it turns me into a kid again.
But the surprise packages are still the best kind.
And it was a surprise package the mailman brought to me.
The kids opened it, and as soon as they did, my home was filled with warm fragrance. “What is it?” they asked.
Do you know what that is? A whole package of beautiful, handmade soaps and body-pampering products from Sharon Rowland at Lovin’ the Lather.
No one said anything at first. Then all five children slowly exhaled. “Oooooooooooh!”
The box was packed full of the most unique and wonderful soaps I’ve ever seen.
The twins started stripping off their clothes. There was some serious bath time in their futures and they were not going to waste any time.
Sharon crafts each soap and body product with the finest ingredients. They smell, feel, and look luxurious.
My kids love the bunny packaging Sharon used. Look–Carrots and Cream soap! How perfect is that for an Easter basket? Paul, my sensitive skin boy, will be getting that one. You can’t see it but this little soap is wrapped in a green ribbon and secured with a little orange carrot. Adorable. I love Sharon’s attention to detail! Details make me happy.
I love having sugar-free options for Easter baskets. My kids are just as excited to have their own soaps as they are to have jelly beans. Actually, I think they’re even more excited because these soaps are all so special, and they know it.
But, Sharon also included some things I won’t share. Like this:
Those are bubbling bath salts in that green bottle. See how the lid is open? That’s because it smells like spearmint, rosemary, and eucalyptus. I’m tempted to walk around with it under my nose all day. It’s not at all overpowering like eucalyptus can be. It’s just…perfect.
I wish I could show you everything Sharon sent! It is all incredible. Be sure to visit her site if you’d like to try some of these yourself! I’ll be in the tub.
*Sharon did not compensate me for this review. She sent me these products out of the kindness of her heart, and I honestly loved them so much, I had to share them. I am grateful for her kindness and amazed by her generosity.
Guess what else? She gave birth to her third baby, Celeste Eliora Hope, on Sunday. She is going to be one sweet smelling baby! Congratulations, Sharon!
