Christmas Tree Glitter Soap


Oh my gosh! Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get all of my stuff done in time. I know Christmas is a few weeks away but if I procrastinate, everyone won’t get their presents until March. Yikes. That is scary. I dug down into the far reaches of our fragrance drawer to pull out our bottle of Christmas Tree Fragrance Oil. I am going to pair it with our Emerald Green Glitter. I think it will be really pretty.What do you think about this soap? Does this fit your idea of the holidays? It this soap suitable for Hanukkah? Winter Solstice? Kwanza? What would you do differently for this soap to fit your holidays?

I really like our Christmas Tree Fragrance Oil. I have never had a fresh cut evergreen in the house but I have walked in the lots that sell trees for the holidays. It smells bright and fresh. I love the clean smell of the trees and fresh fallen snow crunching beneath my feet. When smelling this fragrance I can almost feel a cold wind nipping at my nose! After the terrible heat of this summer, it is really refreshing. Come join me in the kitchen in preparation for the holidays.
