    I am getting ready for our local Farmer's Market and have made two scented gardener's soaps which I made in a clay pot. They have pumice and clean sand mixed in and are so good with dirty gardening hands (especially when I forget to put my gloves on). The two scents I have are rosemary mint and clary sage.[​IMG][/IMG] 2018-05-24 12.46.52.jpg 2018-05-24 12.47.07.jpg

    That is adorable! Will you be selling it with the pot? What is your price point?

    Thank you so much! Yes the pot is part of the purchase. I was thinking between $5.75 and 6.00 - not a big piece of soap but it is good stuff!

    So, how big is it? Hard to get the proportions. Is that one of those cute little mini pots?

    Pricing would depend on the weight of the soap, cost of the pot and , and the cost of making the soap. I sell 5.5-6 oz soaps for $7

    The soap weighs under 4 oz so I think I am pretty good to go!

    I agree that it is very cute and would make an adorable present for a gardener. Congratulations for your idea. Also if you can paint or even stencil a cute flower or some other decoration would really push the pot over the edge. :D

    That is so creative and beautiful! I do a lot of gardening, actually have a small market garden, and make a gardening soap for my constantly earthy hands, but I am having trouble getting the right material and the right proportions of the exfoliants in my gardening soap recipe. May I ask what proportions of pumice and sand you use in yours?
    I am also curious about what is underneath the soap in the pot? Do you just leave a space there or do you put something under there?

    Such a cute idea! Is it hard to get out of the clay pot?
