made in hawaii

filthyfarmgirl If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know one of my obsessions is soap.

I love buying the kind that smells citrusy, musky, clean...bigger bonus is if it is locally made.

I recently saw an article in the "Honolulu" magazine and they mentioned Filthy Farmgirl as a locally made soap.

I went online and ordered the "small" size because they didn't quite specify how big their bars were, these were US$3 each.

Anyway, another thing I like about this company is that they have free shipping! If you live in Hawaii, you know that free shipping is a rare thing.

I think International shipping will cost you something, but you should check their site to be sure.

So, I ordered 6 different bars and another bonus, they gave me a sample bar for my order over US$12.

Most of their bars are made on the Big Island (the Island of Hawaii) and it seems like some with goat's milk are made in Vermont.

When I chose the bars I chose the ones with "made in Hawaii" on their labels...they smell incredible and I can't wait to try them.

Do you have any obsessions?

I love products made in Hawaii! I have some body lotions (I adore them!), an After Sun Maui Babe Lotion, and a perfume White Ginger. I didn't mention Hawaiian pineapples which are the best, and Hawaiian coffee!

I LOVE the name of this soap -
Filthy Farmgirl!
It's been so long since anyone has called me 'filthy'...maybe not since mud pie and sandbox days.

I'm addicted to huge Provence 72% olive oil cubes that never wear out. After a year you're truly sick of looking at the scooped out dent and just toss them.
Very wasteful but I do think they are pure and scent-free as well.
Soap is such a personal thing...
Thanks Kat

Very fun--I love the labels too. (I am a sucker for anything that A. Smells good, B. Has a cute label or packaging). ;-)
