Four Green Fields
I have a new soap of the month for March. I have done it in honor of St Patrick's Day. I'm still debating whether this soap will be a limited edition or not. Beer is very tricky to work with and initially I almost had a volcano on my hands. It all worked out in the end and this soap is lovely but it still leaves me wondering if I should relegate it exclusively to St. Patrick's Day.
Four Green Fields truly does make it seem like you are literally in a field. I like to think of myself as being in an Irish field although I have yet to actually place my toes in the soil there, but still I can dream. I tried to use scents that would compliment the beer so I chose sage and rosemary and colored it with parsley powder. My sister-in-law compared it to the freshly mowed grass. You'll have to smell it to decide for yourself what you think it reminds you of.
So lift your glass (or your soap for that matter) and give three cheers for St. Patrick's Day!
