At events I’m usually asked what my best selling soap is. This post is for my top five best selling soaps.
Number 1- Peppermint Scrub or Candi
It blows my mind that Peppermint Scrub is my number one best selling soap, because, it’s my least favorite. I don’t like “things” in my soap. I like a smooth bar, without any roughness, but my customers think otherwise. The crushed apricot seeds in this bar, combined with the minty peppermint, wake you up each morning.
Number 2- Lavender Lemongrass or Zowie
This bar is my favorite. Lavender Lemongrass. Smooth, calming lavender mixed with some uplifting lemongrass, this was the first blend I decided on for my soap line. The aroma reminds me of the time my mom bought me a gift certificate to a fancy spa. This is what it smelled like when I walked in.
Number 3- Activated Charcoal or Marissa
This soap is another one that surprises me. I made an Activated Charcoal soap for a young girl (Marissa) who asked me if I made a soap with activated charcoal in it. She said someone had gifted her with a bar and she felt it helped her teenage skin. She couldn’t remember the name of the soap company that made it, so I gave it a shot. I wholesale this soap to Remedies Herb Shop in Brooklyn and it must fly off the shelf because they’re always ordering more.
Number 4- Patchouli Clove or Autumn
I make 3 soaps with a patchouli blend, and Patchouli Clove comes in at top seller number four. I’m not a big fan of patchouli straight, but I love it blended with other essential oils. I love to tell people that Rose Patchouli smells like a dirty rose, and my Shaving Soap also contains patchouli, but Patchouli Clove smells just like the 1960’s.
Number 5- Anise Orange or Kizzy
Anise Orange is my sister Lisa’s favorite soap. It’s the soap everyone picks up and says “What is that aroma? I know it, but can’t figure it out it.” Anise has a strong licorice aroma, so I use a tiny amount in the blend. Mixed with orange and lavender, you know it’s there, but can’t quite place it.
So, those are my top five best selling soaps. Was your favorite one of them?
