As promised, here are my home made Goat’s Milk and Green Tea soaps in a 7 chakra guest soap gift set.
The tiny flecks that you can see are caused by tea leaves, I simply can’t get them all and a teensy microscopic leaf fragment will blossom in the soap. These are available unfragranced, white tea, green tea, chai or strawberry/rhubarb. $4.00 per set. Also available in Honey and Chamomile Tea – which will be a clear soap.
Available at my farmer’s markets or at Rebecca’s in Peterborough, NH. By arrangement at your reiki session and by mail if shipping is paid.
