St.John's Soap Works

One of the things I love to enjoy after a stressful day is a nice refreshing bath, with a nice self-care routine. St.John's Soap works handcrafts Artisan soap and bath products, to bring your shower or bath routine to the next level. Not only are their soaps handmade, but they are also aesthetically pleasing and unique, step aside plain jane soaps. The newest soap they have created looks like the classic marshmallow peep, perfect for Easter!

Salt, definitely one thing we love here in NL, whether that be for preventing slippery roads in the winter or an overly salted slab of beef for Jiggs dinner.
