Being in Paris has given me a new appreciation for beautiful hand and body soaps. They take pride in their washes! And I, too, remember the lathers and scents accompanied by a wonderful bar of the finest soap. It doesn't hurt that they look absolutely gorgeous displayed next to the sink.

Here are some to try:

 L'Occitane Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap  - Generously sized for everyday use and the bath. Formulated with a 100% vegetable base and enriched with nourishing Shea Butter. L'Occitane works directly with women's Shea-processing collectives in western Africa, supporting economic recovery--and a heritage of natural harvesting traditions. $10.00

Fresh Linden SoapA pure vegetable oil base enhanced with nourishing shea butter. Because the bar is milled twice, there are no air pockets which makes the soap dense, luxurious, and long-lasting. Scent - a green lime blossom. $14.00

Savon de Marseilles Pure Olive Oil Soap from the South of France - This is the traditional French Soap made with local lavender flowers. Big blocks of olive oil soap has been made in the south of France since 1688. It takes 2 weeks to make it. The delicate mixture of olive and vegetable oils, alkaline ash from sea plants and Mediterranean Sea salt water are heated for ten days in cauldrons, then poured into open pits where it hardens. all natural and unscented. $7.00

Split Creek All Natural Handmade Goat Milk Soap - generously-sized 2.5 oz. bar soap is hand-made using the finest ingredients. It contains pure vegetable oil and Split Creek Farm Grade "A" Goat Milk. The fragrances used are from 100% pure essential oils. The use of herbs and flowers may cause delightful color variations. Choose from our variety of scents, each possessing special healing and skin softening qualities: Unscented - gentle, pure & soft; Orange - delightful & invigorating; Tea Tree with Calendula - antiseptic; Peppermint - refreshing & uplifting; Rosemary - clarifying & stimulating; Lavender - calming & relaxing; Cedar - grounding. $4.00

Sparta Handmade Soap - Lavender - Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil has a wonderfully soft lavender scent without the strong, "medicinal" fragrance some lavenders have. The lather is very creamy and gentle. We've added powdered Chamomile Flowers, Calendula Petals & Lavender Buds to this naturally colored soap. The color of this is a little darker than usual. $4.00
