I bought a bar of Wind Song Acres soap in Spring Lilac scent. I don’t usually use bar soap. And I definitely don’t usually spend $5 on a bar of soap. But it smelled so good, and it was my birthday, and they’re a green company, so I decided to splurge and try it.
The smell. THE SMELL. It’s good, and it’s strong. I keep it in my bathroom cabinet when I’m not using it, and I get a big whiff of it every time I open the cabinet. Sometimes I even get a little whiff of it before I open the cabinet. Sometimes I just hold it up to my nose and breathe it in for a few minutes.
It also has a nice lather and lasts a long time (I’ve been using it as a shampoo, face wash, and body wash, and I’ve only just started to notice that the bar is getting smaller).
They have A TON of other scents too (I also bought Summer Cottage scent, but I haven’t tried it yet).
And their castile bar is vegan (I haven’t tried that one yet though).
The price scared me at first. $5 a bar is a little much for me. But after seeing how long the bar is lasting combined with how good it smells and how green the company is (they use just a few natural ingredients in their homemade and handmade soap, and they grow their own herbs and have their own beehives), I think it’s worth it.
These soaps might be a little hard to find. You can find them at some festivals and fairs and a few stores throughout New York state (you can see their schedule of fairs and festivals here) or you can order online here. The shipping prices are a little scary if you don’t plan on getting much, but shipping is free if you spend more than $50.
Most of the soaps contain beeswax, so they’re not vegan (they are considering making more vegan soaps in addition to the vegan castile though, so visit their facebook page and let them know if that’s something you’d be interested in!)
Also, the smell doesn’t stick to me after I shower with it. But really, that’s a pretty minor complaint. That’s basically me looking for something negative to say.
I really like this soap. A lot. I wish they had more vegan options and hope they will soon. In the meantime, check out the castile soap if you’re vegan or any of the others if you’re not. If it’s not sold anywhere near you, buy it on their website. Go ahead and buy $50 worth. Because there’s no way that you’re not going to like it, so you might as well get the free shipping! If you don’t know what scent you want to try or aren’t picky about scents, you can also save a bit of money by getting the bag of soap.
