WeeEssentials Review & Giveaway


I first stumbled across WeeEssentials when looking for soap bits to tuck into my cloth diaper cakes. After absolutely falling in love with her shop, I ordered a couple packs to try out. I'm now proud to say not only do her soap bits find a place in my diaper cakes, but also permanent residence on my bathroom counter.

Her soap bits are either 99% natural (those with fragrance oils), or 100% natural (those with essential oils). However, you can rest assured that ALL of them are SLS (sodium laureth sulfate) free, and contain only the highest quality ingredients.

How do you use them? Simply dissolve 1 cube in 1 cup of heated water. How easy is that?! You can then use the resulting soapy solution for moistening cloth wipes (for cleaning just about anything!). Other suggestions for the solid cubes are using them as single-use guest soap, or taking them along with you to use in public restrooms.

My thoughts? Like I said, I've been using WeeEssential soap bits for quite a while now, and I just love them. The scents smell fantastic- strong enough to make stinky diaper changes a little more pleasant, but not enough to be overwhelming. I also think the owner, a mother of two (soon to be three!), is just the sweetest person, and doing business with her has been nothing but wonderful.

Want to try WeeEssentials soap bits for yourself? Winner of this giveaway will receive a small pack of Lavender Chamomile (12 soap bits), a sampler pack of Energize! (3 bits) and a sampler pack of Witches' Brew (3 bits). (Note: she now packs her soap bits in cute jars, but these particular soap bits will arrive in her previous packaging of little labled baggies).

Mandatory Entry: Visit the WeeEssentials' Etsy shop, and leave a comment with your favorite scent. Be sure to include your email address where I may contact you.
