Why a GIANT pot? Well, summer squash and zucchini season is the only time I cook with these vegetables. And when it is zucchini season, we are FLUSH. Plus, it is hot and humid during zucchini season, so I like to cook a huge pot of dinner one day and then eat leftovers for three days.

If you read here much, you likely know I’m a bit granola when it comes to body products. It began nearly 20 years ago when I started making my own soap in large batches, right in my own kitchen. My roommates and friends gave me a bit of side-eye as I mixed my lye solutions, read up on adding oats and essential oils, and jabbered about sapponification. I may have been considered eccentric. I still make some bath & body things and upgraded my ingredients to things like raw shea butter instead of generic grocery store oils. I like knowing where it all comes from. I like knowing the ingredients. Knowing the story.
Soapbox Soaps is a source of bath & body items that fulfills my love for fine ingredients and a good story.
Soapbox Soups is a one-for-one company that donates a bar of soap to someone in need with each purchase. They have donated soaps all over the globe to those who can benefit.
We all benefit from soap. While simply using water and friction does an alright job of cleaning something, soap reduces surface tension and allows one to get the job done more efficiently. The reduced surface tension of water also means less dirt being redeposited. A more efficient clean means less illness and spreading of harmful substances.
Wouldn’t it be great to take part in something that helps everyone have access to a simple bar of soap when they need it?
Aside from a nice cause, Soapbox Soaps offer quality products. The body wash, and hand soap are all free of parabens, petrochemicals, and EDTA. The hair shampoo and conditioner are also free of SLS, SLES, and silicones. They are also vegan and cruelty free. The hair products are color safe and lightly scented, so they are safe for processed hair. I have a tendency to have blue or pink hair these days, so color safe is a must. These are moisturizing items, but without the use of silicone. Instead they nourish hair and skin with shea butter and aloe.
With aloe! Actual aloe plant in background not included.

A Soapbox set of luxury body products is a great gift idea. I especially like gifts that get used up so they don’t leave clutter around.

The citrus & peach rose scented items have a lovely light scent that isn’t overwhelming. Plus, the bundle packs are only $29.95 for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, and a bar of soap. I easily spend that much at Target on those items, so having them delivered to my door, knowing the ingredients, and supporting the #SoapEqualsHope cause? Awesome.
