When I was at the Draft Horse Classic yesterday, I wandered into a booth that had horse shaped, natural (good for your skin) soap. Silver Meadow Soap.
As I was poking around the booth, the lady inside was happily sitting there, glowing. Her skin looked fresh and she literally – glowed.
She seemed so happy that I asked her how long she had been making this beautifully shaped soap. And I commented that she must be very happy doing it!
And she told me her story…
SHE’S A REGULAR GAL THAT LOVES NATURAL SOAPS and horses!
She told me how she felt a bit lost in her life… and while she was bemoaning her predicament, her husband became allergic to most soaps. So, she forgot about her own life and decided to dive in and so the research on soaps for her husband’s health… Eventually, she decided to try her lot at making healthy soaps for him.
Hubby loved her soaps… her friends, family and neighbors loved her soap… so she decided to make a few bars to sell at a local horse show. Also, she quietly wanted an excuse to hang out at horses shows because she loved horses.
Well… her wares were a huge success!
So, she made all of her soaps in horse-shaped bars and a new business was born!
And now, this very new vendor is selling exclusively at horse shows in CA. I asked about her schedule and she said she is gone almost every weekend and loves what she is doing – making soap and talking to horse people while surrounded by horses!
INEXPENSIVE, GREAT FRESH GIFTS!
I wanted to tell you all about these handmade soaps because they were very fragrant, reasonably priced and lovely to use. I chose the ‘Mist’ scent (citrus). To be honest, I could have taken home all the scents but she had run out of my favorites in the shapes I wanted. My nose would describe the scents as ‘floral lavender’, ‘easy citrus’, ‘citrus spice’, and ‘patchouli’. There may have been more, but I got there so late on Sunday, she was mostly sold out.
Since she is still a new vendor, it would be great to support her, if you liked her goods!
This is what I like… I love thinking about slathering myself in all this good stuff!

I bought a bar and helped myself to a few samples! To me, this is a great gift – and inexpensive enough that you don’t feel guilty buying for yourself!
This gal is local to Northern CA and very new. Don’t you love finding new artists?!
Here is her website: Silver Meadow Soap.
Here is her FB page link.
Last week to help the JOSEPHINE 5! Read their story here!
I preferred MIST – it is citrusy and fresh. She actually has more scents than she describes on her website.
If you email her, tell her I said there was a spice citrus, lavender and Patchouli that she didn’t list on her website.
Wow… Just love this!
I sure am going to order these for gifts!
She had me at the “FIRST LOVE” soap.
I have one question though…..since you were there and had the opportunity to smell the two different smells.
Give me your take on how they smelled.
I can’t decide and need a second opinion since you were there and I trust your words.
Thanks Dawn for sharing this with the people that follow you and love your deep compassion for our “FIRST LOVE”
