Pine Tar

Bean picked me up some very peculiar soap. Knowing I'd dig its dark and mysterious scent, she bought a bar of Grandpa's Wonder Pine Tar Soap. Hard to describe the aroma - smoky, dark, rich, and clean. I brought the cardboard packaging, still loaded with pine tar scent, to the office with me to get a consensus on the odor (and to have a few laughs). The reaction was unanimous - they hated it. Trust me on this though, it's great. Earthy and rich.

The site boasts healing properties. I told my coworkers my grandmother cured her shingles with only one wash. They weren't buying it. The story, or the soap.

If this is made the way it was made 20 years ago, it actually helps to cure psoriasis. My husband used to use it when he was younger.

I think Satan is involved in the process. I'm unnaturally addicted to the scent.

Glad you like the pic : )

Currently I'm trying to find some suitable pumpkins for my fall lineup, but not having much luck. Hoping that Michael's loads up this weekend though.

I'll keep you posted.
