I decided that for my part of this giveaway hop, I wanted to focus on some of my favorite home grown businesses, from right here in Oklahoma. The next one I want to share will probably be new to you, but once you try it, you won’t forget. It’s Okie Suds!
I found Okie Suds totally by accident about two and a half months ago through a totally unrelated Twitter party. Autumn tweeted me and I noticed her name (@AutumnNOklahoma) – so of course I had to respond. We Okies have to stick together! We traded url’s and the rest is history.
Let me tell you why I was so excited to find these products. When I was a little girl, my first love was Mr. Bubble. He made every bath fun. I could pretend the mile-high suds were drifts of snow or frothing ocean waves. But my favorite daydream was that I was a beautiful princess in a castle (instead of a plain preachers kid in a parsonage). I’d pile the bubbles high on my head in a grand and fashionable hairdo, then lie back in my bubbles while my imaginary maids lit candles and brought warm towels, and birds and bunnies on loan from Cinderella sang me a bathtime serenade. Sadly, when I was still small, the daydream came to an end when I developed a persistent itchy rash on the backs of my knees. My mom took me to our family doctor, who immediately decreed “No more bubble baths! No more scented soaps! This girl will use Ivory only!” And I did. I am nothing if not brand loyal, and I still buy Ivory for my family.
I was so happy to find Okie Suds. Their wonderfully fragrant soaps are scented with 100% pure essential oils, and they are colored with oxide like those used in mineral makeup. There is nothing that could irritate my sensitive skin. You can read more about the carefully selected ingredients they use at OkieSuds.com. Just setting this soap in my bathroom makes the whole room smell fabulous. As soon as I walk in, that scent is tempting me to stop for a quick soak. The rich lather leaves my skin silky smooth and softly scented. And it’s not hard to slip back into that princess daydream when I’m lying in a warm tub surrounded by those luxurious scents.
Okie Suds make a wonderful affordable gift idea for the beautiful women in your life. You can find a list of retailers here. And don’t miss that it’s available on Amazon, so you can get it no matter where you live. Try it, I know you’ll like it!
I chose Rosemary Mint for the bar Okie Suds sent me to review. (Thank you Autumn!) And you can win a bar of Rosemary Mint from Okie Suds too! Just use the form below to enter.
