Contest/Giveaway: Gardener’s Soap

Please read this post in it’s entirety.

This is a fairly simple contest, just email me a picture of your, or a family member’s, hands during/after you’ve been gardening. The top 4 dirtiest hands will receive a bar of my handmade gardener’s soap! Any kind of gardening counts – planting seedlings, preparing your garden space, etc. NO CHEATING. Please be mature and honest – don’t just run outside and slop around in the mud.

This soap is mostly natural – all natural ingredients with the exception of the very small amount of fragrance oil used. I have been using a bar from the batch at my kitchen sink for a couple weeks and love it. I think you will too, it really gets the gunk off my hands and leaves them nice and soft. It’s got great lather and bubbles. This soap has a high amount of “scrubbiness” and is not recommended for highly sensitive skin or children.

I will send the winners an email after a couple of weeks asking for feedback on the soap, so please expect this and respond, even if you end up hating the soap!

Value: Approximately $10 USD | Open to residents of the US and Canada

Ingredients: Local Tallow, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Distilled Water, Gardener’s Scrubby Mix (Whole Ground Oats, Cornmeal, Coffee Grounds, Lemon & Orange Zest, Dill Weed), Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance.

The soap you receive is a gift from me to the winners and the winners agree, upon receiving your gift, not to hold me responsible for any injuries or other issues that may occur during use of the soap. As with any bath/body product, I recommend the winners test their soap on a small area of skin before full use. Do not get soap into eyes.

      You’re welcome. It’s a pretty basic recipe, most gardener soaps use similar.

    Are the home made soap safe to use on kids?

    • Amy June 29, 2011 at 5:43 pm #

      Yes, homemade soaps are safe for kids, often safer than store bought. If a child has sensitivities to colorants and scents however, it would be best to buy unscented and colored homemade soaps for them (which are available in abundance).
