International Soap Obsession

When my friends and family travel, they usually bring me a little something, and that little something is almost always soap. I love trying soaps from other places.



These are soaps from the Middle East. The three down the middle are a gift from my father (who lives in Turkey), and the two on either side were brought to me by my friend Ann who has been travelling in Jordan. I'm especially keen on the olive oils soaps. The soap to the far right (with the emu on it) is a 100% olive oil soap. The Komili soap is a blend of olive and tallow.

I do! The first soap on my list is the birdie olive oil.

It took me awhile to figure out how to post it, but it's there! :)

Have you used any of them yet?? I am curious to hear the outcome.

I tried the pure olive one tonight and it was lovely -- very lightly scented with a typical olive oil soap lather.

There's a description how to post pictures to the group pool.

I found the instructions! Still, it takes me twice as long to do computery stuff. I'm a bit hopeless. :)
