Soap Surprise Give-A-Way

 I have already shared my excitment over the great soap I discovered a while back.  You can read my last blog entry about it HERE.  It is time to get another soap order ready.  I was excited to see the all of the wonderful products Natalie has available.
Natalie and family not only make soap, but a wonderful salve that I will be reordering.  I originally bought the Soothing Herbal Salve to use on Friendie's very sensitive skin.  Because I keep it handy in the kitchen, it gets used for every itchy and owie that shows up.  (Friendie has an ink tag irritation, so any clothing that has the tagless ink tag markings inside the garment makes his skin break out in a rash.  We try to always cover the ink with a large bandage, but sometimes they fall off and his poor little neck needs a good slathering of Soothing Herbal Salve because it really does sooth his skin.)
Something you won't find everywhere are the all natural Shampoo and Body Bars.  I will order the guys some bars for their gym bags so they don't have to worry about their liquid products leaking out....or freezing solid in this Minnesota winter! 
Speaking of Minnesota winters.....they also sell a Lip Balm called Minnesota Winter.....and only $2.50 a stick....why didn't I have it when I was running around in the -30 degree windchill??? 
I have purchased their Lanolin Wool Wash Bar to give as a gift.  Check out their blog entry on how to use a Wool Wash Bar.  

I sent Natalie an email with a question about her soaps.  She is so gracious and offered to GIVE-A-WAY a FREE BAR of soap to one of my blog readers!!! 

I hope you will take time to check out Apple Valley Natural Soap online.

To enter your name in the drawing for a free bar of soap, just leave me a comment with the name of one of the bars that you would be interested in trying. 
(I need to limit this gift to mailing in the US only this time....not that I don't totally appreciated my foreign blog friends)

If you want to meet Natalie and learn more about her family and their buisness, stop by and visit her blog
What a great looking family!
(gotta love the little bashful one in the front)

I will leave comments open until the end of the month.

Omigosh! I just spent about 10 mins. and had to stop myself from reading and looking. Amazing product and great prices. I bookmarked and Liked them for future purchase. The first one I'd like to try is Green Tea and Nettle. But, so many others too. I love the complete explanations.

Thanks for introducing me to this site!
I would love to try the acne battle soap for my teenagers. It would be nice to find a natural product that works for their skin with out all the harsh chemicals.

OH< and THANK YOU for the idea of using the book shelves in the hallway. My daughter and I just moved 3 of them up to the upstairs hallway and they fit perfectly. I'm going to put all the kids books on them and then when they are done brushing their teeth at night, they can grab a book to read in bed. Thanks again!! I post pics when it's all done.

This soap sounds wonderful. I've been using more natural products lately, and love them. I think I would choose the Lavender Buttermilk bar.
Thanks for hosting the giveaway :-)

I would like to try Kitchen Spice Bar but the The Chamomile and Orange Blossom Shampoo and Body Bar
sounds yummy too! I would love to try any of their bars. I spent a lot of time looking and really can't choose.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Wow~ it is hard to choose one, but when you mentioned onion fingers, it made me think that the kitchen bar would be the one used most here! LOL The Chamomile and Orange blossom sounds heavenly too. Thanks for the chance! Have a happy day!

I'd love to try their Rhassoul and Avocado Shampoo and Body Bar....I just recently discovered this Christian business and love their variety of choices and packaging design. It looks like they have a great thing going and happy customers. :) I am just starting to get into soap myself, so am interested in trying their bar.
