I’m a wellness nut and do my research before something comes into our home and bodies. I battled acne for 14 years. After trying product after product, I decided to eliminate rather than add one more. I have not worn make up in 6 years, went a year without any product in my hair, and switched to all natural products.
In a short time, my skin cleared up and I no longer battle acne. After years of struggle with it, I don’t want anything to send me back there. I knew our skin is our largest organ. Think about how much your skin is exposed to and everything it absorbs - when you consider how many times a day you use soap, it adds up quickly!
Pre-baby, my husband and I dabbled in soap making. My husbands had a dream of living in Hawaii and making soap as a profession. Post-baby, we’ve passed the soap making supplies on and have a higher appreciation for all those homemade bars.
My Urban Garden has been making soap since 2012, their experience shines through strongly in the detail, color and beauty of each bar.
As soon as I opened the box, it was an oasis of beautiful aroma. I received 4 bars - Cranberry Pomegranate, Green Sea Clay, Blackberry Sage, and Avocado Mint. They all were great combinations filled with high quality ingredients.
My Urban Garden crafts each product in small batches to ensure the freshness and quality. Their recipes include simple ingredients and are focused on sourcing the finest ingredients for products that are as naturally chemical free as possible.
You have the option between vegan moisturizing soap and goat milk soap, and each of these types come in many wonderful blends.
One bar of soap lasted us over two weeks for a family of 3. No one had any negative reactions to the soap, including our 2 year old son. I loved starting my day with a hot shower filled with the amazing aroma. The bar did not crumble apart like some homemade soaps I’ve experienced.
Not only are My Urban Garden’s soaps beautiful, effective, and high quality. They also focus on helping others and supporting local. For every bar of soap that is purchased, they donate a bar of soap to a local homeless shelter near Alexandria, VA.
They love to use local ingredients from Virginia in their products.
“We use fresh and dried herbs grown in our urban garden in Old Town, Alexandria. We use fresh, locally sourced goat's milk in our speciality soap for sufferers of eczema, psoriasis and dry skin. We use Virginia honey; a wonderful natural addition to our moisturizing Oat & Honey soap and Lemon & Honey Sugar Scrub.”In addition to buying My Urban Garden soaps by the bar for $4.99 - $6.99, you can order a gift basket of 4 soaps through their Etsy shop for $19.99. They also carry a range of sugar scrubs and bath bombs - if you're looking for a few good Valentine's Day gift ideas, this may be just what you're looking for.
