Great service

Prompt delivery and excellent range of stock. Unfortunately I haven’t had time to make try out my Basil, Black pepper and Ginger soap yet, but I’m really looking forward to it!

Thank you for the great feedback Lucina. We hope your soap making goes well. The mix of scents together sound incredible. Thank you for the support.
