Rubber Ducky Sale!
Did you know that Soapourri has over 70 different kinds of rubber duckies swimming in soap? They are all on sale right now at only $5 for small duckies and $7 for large!
Our newest loaf soap-of-the-month is Yuzu. Yuzu is a citrus that grows in Japan. Its flavor is similar to the regular grapefruit but has definite overtones of Mandarin orange. It is very fresh and tangy-tasting and is considered one of the most fragrant of Japanese fruits. In orange with a block of yellow inside. Only $4 while it lasts.
Don't forget the Skeeter Beater! A natural mosquito repellent in an aloe vera gel base. Very cooling! Safe, effective, natural. We blend three essential oils with the aloe vera gel to get this pleasantly lemon-smelling mosquito repellent. $9.50 for 4 ounces.
I hope you're enjoying your spring as much as I am.
Spring is my favorite season - watching the buds and flowers appear on the
trees, seeing the hostas shoot out of the ground and then spread, seeing new
tulips appear for the first time - so thrilling, especially after the winter
that we had!

We Been Up To? (Besides No Good, Of
We recently hosted the Irish Fireside.com lads on their trip
west. We made soap together and got some great ideas for new products. You can
read about all our exploits at my blog.
At our last show a woman approached us with a request - Soap to Go. She
travels to school kitchens and washes her hands frequently with the harsh soap
there, and was experiencing dry hands. She was looking for some good soap to
carry with her. Well, this was all we needed to hear, as we struggle with the
same issue when we leave the house as well. We're so used to our soap that it
really bothers us when we use "ECS" - Evil Corporate Soap. If you
work at a place that uses ECS and you'd like to be a tester for our Soap to Go,
reply to this newsletter with your mailing address and we'll pick a few of you
to be our guinea pigs!
