Soapy Business (2 of 5 Reviews)

To continue my adventure in soaps and before I make my first batch of soap, I am testing a few flavors to help me decide what I'd like.  Today I chose to soap up with the Eucalyptus Body Bar.  This bar had a stronger scent than I had anticipated, but was a very clean and fresh scent.

Description (provided by the seller):
Eucalyptus oil is often used in saunas for its detoxifying and soothing properties. The combination of Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils along with moisturizing butters in this body bar will set your mind at ease.
Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Soybean Oil, Dry Rosemary Leaf, Eucalyptus, Rosemary Essential Oils

This bar of soap has rosemary leaves inside the bar which helped with exfoliating.  Since this was a trial size, more like a travel size bar, I only had a few leaves throughout the bar.  By the time I was through my shower, I could see the leaves sticking out from either side of the bar.

The lather from this bar was very sudsy with large bubbles.  I was pleased with how the bar lathered and couldn't imagine a soap getting more bubbly.  I'm not sure what this soap would be like without the rosemary, but I would be interested in trying it that way.  Rosemary makes me think of potatos, maybe because I like to put rosemary on my homemade homefries.  I suppose it makes for a good morning shower!  While rinsing the bubbles off, my skin was left with the squeaky clean feeling but not so squeaky that I needed to apply body lotion after drying off. 

Overall, I would rate this soap: 4 Bubbles!
