One World One Heart Giveaway

One Heart One World is an International blogging event I am participating in for the second year. Last year was great fun. The event was started by The Whimsical Bohemian in 2007 as a giveaway to bring bloggers around the globe together. So here is how the event works, I am hosting a giveaway and so are all the other bloggers participating in the event. Click HERE to see all the other participating blogs.   All winners will be announced on February 17th.

For my giveaway I am offering one of my 9 Half Bar Sampler Sets giving the winner a wonderful selection of handmade soaps to try.   The set includes 9 half bars of Sweet Sally's Soaps. The soaps included are Coconut Milk, Lime and Shea, Patchouli Vanilla, I Love Coffee, Clove, Charcoal and Tea Tree, Rosemary Mint, Patchouli Orange, and Dead Sea Mud. For detailed information about each soap see listings in my etsy shop. Sweet Sally's Soaps

I have been making soaps for the past 6 years.  Last year I gradually made the shift to using organic oils in my soaps.  Organic products have become a very important issue to me.  I try to feed my family as much organic food as I can afford and use organic products for skin care and cleaning.  

To enter my giveaway please leave a comment at this post before Midnight EDT February 16th  and make sure to leave contact information so if you win I can contact you.  The winner will be announced February 17th.  Good luck to everyone and have fun blogging around the blogging World!
