Seattle Sundries Soaps are fun and just a little Odd in a special sort of way.
Each soap comes in its own little round tin and has an art label which is a mixture of vintage images specifically for each product. Anne, the Seattle soap maker, “enjoys making soaps that not only spark imagination and conversation, but put a smile on your face while they do it.” Having a conversation about the soap you use could be Odd. When I wanted to talk about my new tins of soap with my fourteen-year-old, he looked at me like I was, in fact, Odd. Maybe this is more the kind of excitement you share with a girlfriend or mom.
All the soap ingredients are natural with no synthetic fragrances or dyes. Instead of using fragrance, each soap is made using only pure essential oils and natural colorants. Nope, My Odd Family has not been hijacked. In fact, I am drinking a coke and eating M&M’s as I type this. My clothes are in the washer being scrubbed clean with Tide detergent, soon to be in the dryer with their best friend, the Bounce sheet. Maybe it’s Odd for me, but I still like and appreciate these all-natural soaps, so there.
What I like best about Anne’s soaps is they are FUN!
The tin – Fun!
The round shape – Fun!
The labels – Fun!
The enclosed explanatory note – Fun!
The soaps themselves are fun: Bitchin Kitchen Soap contains borax, ground espresso beans to give it texture, and cinnamon essential oils to clean garlic odor from hands. Really, could you want much more? Buck Naked describes itself. There is nothing added to this soap. It’s just buck naked, plain and simple. Haute Goat Soap celebrates the noble goat and is made with a generous portion of fresh goat’s milk. It’s lathery, creamy, mild, and best of all, luxurious. Gender Neutral Soap – Not quite sure what soap category you fit into? This might be the soap for you.
Although I have never met Anne, the Seattle Soap Maker, I like her. Her website made me smile and I bought several tins of her soap. The soap was delivered promptly and it out-delivered my expectations. Now I can point to my fun tins of soap, smile smugly and say, “Oh, of course, it’s all natural, environmentally responsible, handcrafted, and TA DA, certified Roundtable for Sustainable Palm soap.” Wow, that was REALLY FUN!
Glad you were in my Odd neighborhood. Feel free to drop by any time. Odd Loves Company and odd loves you and you and you!! I would love to hear from you in the comment section of this blog, or on Facebook or Twitter!
