wannabeahippy follower giveaway

To celebrate reaching 200 fans on the wannabeahippy facebook page, I'll be giving away some more soap. Any excuse for a celebration and to offload some more of this soap! I'm not trying to get rid of it because it's not good, I love it. But... being made from recycled oil, I have a constant supply which outstrips demand, and maybe, just maybe, some of you will try it, like it and want to make it yourselves.

It has lemon essential oil for a fresh fragrance and mild anti-bacterial action, lemongrass tea for fragrance and colour and chopped lemongrass and cane sugar for exfoliation.

If you think you would like to try some of this soap, just become a follower of or subscribe to this blog (buttons to the right) AND leave a comment on this post. In a few words, tell me what you would like to see on the wannabeahippy blog. Tutorials? Events updates? What's happening around my place? I'll pick a random comment using a random number generator and post the result here. Good luck guys!!
