I Love Orange So That Must Mean I Like Carrots!

Carrots are everywhere. At our house, we eat the baby carrots by the bag, every week. They're delicious, and good for you! The nutrients in them are apparently good for your skin, too. Here are some soaps with REAL carrots inside.

I think I have to start making fruit and veggie soaps. I'm all curious about it. How wholesome and luscious it all seems.

Carrot Soap

Carrot & Urucum Oil Soap

nourishing bar with a mild, sweet fragrance of spiced carrot cake.

Look how cool that last one is... I'm trying to figure out what kind of mold they used to get that effect. Very cool....
I want one!

I really like the last one. To me it looks like they used a Popsicle mold.

Celine Blacow said...

Looks fabulous! If you're trying it out Jo, a combo of buttermilk & carrots is divine!

Joanna said...

Celine: I already have a quart of buttermilk ready for some honey and banana soap. Mmmm.

I think I'll do fruits first (summer) and then veggies later...


Royal Suds: You may be right! I guess I imagined them larger, but you are probably spot on, Royal!

I think I like carrot soaps more than carrots. ;)

Love those "carrots" at the bottom -so clever and creative! I have never done a veggie juice soap, but I do have a juicer
...hmmm, food for thought...;)

Cathy said...

I have some of Rocky Top's carrot soap, and it is spectacular! Smells sweet and pure, like the first batch of unscented CP soap I ever made. Totally took me back, and makes my skin feel wonderful.

Such a bonanza of carrot-y goodness!! I am so pleased to find my soap included here. Thanks so much!

I love Rocky Top's carrot soap! I used it as a facial soap and it left my skin amazingly soft! AND lasted for over 5 months!

Anne-Marie said...

Yay for carrots! The last one on your list is so creative, love it!
