Great article Helen ... I haven't used anything but handmade for years now, nor have any of my family and our skin is thanking us for it! Love handmade!

There really is a world of difference between that, that has been made by hand (I guess you could say the old fashioned way) and many commercial types of soap. Such luxury and indulgence x

Great article Helen, I enjoyed reading it. Hopefully people will begin to understand the reasons for buying handmade soap. I use far less moisturiser than I did with the commercial stuff. Thank you for featuring Scent Trail.
