Keeping the World Clean, One Bar of Soap At A Time

I was very lucky to get to try a sample of Eucalyptus Hemp & Tea Tree olive oil, hemp oil & shea butter soap from http://www.nothingbutsoap.etsy.com/.

The intense Eucalyptus and rich Tea Tree with peppermint leaves make this an eye opening treat. It helped wake me up and made my shower smell devine! My husband even loved it!!!

The eucalyptus will energize your day while hemp, shea butter and a wonderful base cleanse your skin. Eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils are known for their medicinal properties in anti-fungal and anti-staph capabilities.

Peppermint leaves are added for additional exfoliation, which is great at removing all the dead skin and made my skin feel so fresh and clean.

Everything rinses super clean, no left over residue at all! You will be squeeky clean and refreshed after you use this great soap!

So visit http://www.nothingbutsoap.etsy.com/ to get a bar of her fabulous soap.
