I admit – I’ve never been to Vermont. But I’ve often thought about making a side trip there on one of my yearly writing trips. When I do think of Vermont, I think of maple syrup, quaint bed and breakfasts, skiing, and the Bing Crosby movie White Christmas. These elements, minus Bing Crosby, paint the quintessential picture of this New England state. But beyond ski hills and pancakes, what you may not know about Vermont could surprise you.
For one thing, it is the home of Vermont Soap Organics, the purveyors of everything soap – from cleaners to wash your counters to sultry body soaps for your shower and tub. And, like the name says, the products are made from all organic ingredients, handmade from hypoallergenic vegetable bases like coconut and palm oil. The facial and hand soaps are made to fit any skin type from sensitive to dry. Plus – and this is my favorite part – many of their soap products come in a number of scents, including lavender, citrus, butter, and honey.
How do I know all of this about Vermont soap when I haven’t even visited the state? A few weeks back, the folks at Vermont Soap Organics offered to send me a few of their soap products to try. Now, you all know by now how much I love soap products, especially little guest soaps, so I just couldn’t pass up a sample or two. After doing some research about the product, reading about the ingredients and history, and more, I was smitten with the little soaps.
