wee essential soap bits giveaway




I am so excited to share this fun and yummy giveaway with you today!! I "met" Candice on Twitter and she makes these super delicious all natural/ 99% natural (depending on the soap) soap bits and she wants to share some with one of my lucky readers! YAY! She has a great etsy shop called Wee Essentials. I knew we were meant to work together when I saw her motto was Green Living for Moms and Babies!

What do you do with a soap bit you ask? Well, lots of things! If you cloth diaper, you can dissolve one bit into a cup of hot water, let it cool and you have a great wipes solution. I have been using it on Sass this week, who has the worlds most sensitive skin and it's great! She is super soft and no rashes from it.

I also made foaming soap with some of the soap bits that Candice sent me. If you double up your bits to water and dissolve and then refill one of those foaming soap bottles, you have a much less expensive, much healthier for your skin foaming soap. I will admit, I was skeptic when I read that this could be done. I didn't think it would work, but it did! I am so excited to because my kids are much more excited about washing hands with foaming soap and I didn't like any of the brands on the market because none of them were natural.

You can also use your soap bits in you child's bath, when you travel, or on a soap dish as "one guest" use soap! There are tons of yummy scents to try out to. Candice let me pick a few to try out and I chose snuggles, baby love and cherry vanilla. I expected cherry vanilla to be my favorite but actually I have fallen in love with baby love. It smells so clean and fresh! I can't wait to use this solution on our newest arrival instead of chemical laden baby wipes!


Here is what her site says about her soaps:

All undyed Essential Oil soap bits are 100% natural. All other fragrances are made with high quality phtalate-free fragrance oils, but since they are synthetic, the final product is only 99% natural. As well, any of my FDA-approved dyes will lower the percentage another 1%.




Candice wants to share some soap bits with one of my lucky readers! By entering our giveaway you can win a soap bits sampler!! You will get to choose 6 scents to fill 6 small jars. One small jar holds about 15 bits, so you are getting a lot of fun soap! I was amazed at how many bits fit into a jar and how little you have to use to make your soap solutions at home. This stuff will last!

And for all my other readers who want to try out Wee Essentials Soap, Candice is being so sweet to offer FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $15!! Use the code FREESHIP when you check out. This makes for a great deal being that a small jar is only $3 and a medium jar is $7! Think about what one bottle of foaming hand soap cost and you can see the savings!

Here's how to enter: (remember, for each thing you do, leave it as an INDIVIDUAL comment to count as a chance to win!!)

I had no trouble picking 6 scents! If I had to choose 1 flavor I would say "Lick Me All Over" and not just because the name cracks me up but with cherry, pineapple and vanilla it sounds like an upside-down cake!
