You’re Gonna Love Me: Tropical Traditions Lavender Liquid Soap

image For a long time, I never liked the smell of lavender.  I guess it reminded me of old women. 

Or perhaps I had never smelled pure lavender essential oil.  When you smell the good stuff . . . ahh, it is pure nostril enjoyment. 

I use lavender essential oil for a variety of body ailments and for relaxation.  I have only successfully grown lavender in my garden once. 

Lavender and I are friends.  When I discovered that Tropical Traditions had combined lavender with their coconut liquid foam soap . . . my hands begged me to try it out. 

And they weren’t disappointed.

I wash my hands a lot throughout the day.  During the winter season, I used to DREAD washing my hands.  They would become painfully dry and split from all of the times I had to wash my hands after changing a diaper to washing dishes for five people . . .

BUT I just realized that this year I have YET to have this problem

I have the Tropical Traditions liquid soap foam pump at my kitchen sink.  And I hope that I don’t gross you out, but often I wait to wash my hands from a dirty diaper that was changed upstairs until I get to the kitchen sink downstairs.  The lavender hand soap smells good and leaves my hands feeling soft and moisturized without using lotion! 

You won’t believe the ingredient list – organic virgin coconut oil and an organic essential oil, if that is what you ordered!  They are packaged in a foam pump dispenser that adds air to the soap, causing a rich lather of foam to come out.  You can also purchase a 32 oz refill container and use the foaming pump over and over again (that is what we do for our bathroom dispenser).
