Everything’s coming up roses

Katy's Rose 6

This soap was named after one of my co-workers whose fiancé sets the bar high for all men when it comes to romantic gestures.

Every Monday, he brings her a fresh bouquet of flowers to adorn her desk, usually roses. I’ve worked with her for five years and I don’t think he’s missed a week yet. I should quit my job and become a florist—her beloved would keep the business afloat.

A Rose for Katy is a soap that features red Brazilian clay, which is good for oily skin. Katy says her skin has never looked better since she’s been using this soap—though I think the weekly flower delivery may have something to do with that, too. Either way, these bars are long lasting and good for getting the oil off your hands after cooking and removing “gardening ick” off them after an afternoon of playing in the dirt.

And, just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can give yourself a rose at a discount! Now through February 16, you can get a 15% discount on your entire order in Emmet Street Creations’ Etsy store by using the discount code BLOG15 at checkout!
