Check out what’s been cooking in the kitchen.  Big blocks of our soap!  Coming soon, you’ll be able to buy in bulk and cut it up as necessary.  PS.  No color dye has been added to our soaps, it is all natural!

We visited this tea farm in Korea! It’s on an island and also has a volcano crater.  Well, now I am drinking an iced green tea from Teavana.
