Just wanted to drop a line and thank you for our yoga session, it was very pleasant and well educating on all the yoga poses, I appreciate the one on one session it just made it more personal and I got more out of it rather than just going to a class with more people. You were very helpful and patient. Thanks again.
"I've purchase three different types of Mary's soaps. Lemon, lavender and tea tree. All of them have been great for different things. I own my own pest and wildlife control company so I have a very dirty job. The lemon soap was a great hand soap to keep me fresh. The lavender soap has a very soothing smell and was perfect for before bed. Sometimes I have sleep problems and I found the smell of the soap before bed was really nice. Finally my favourite - the tea tree. I spend a lot of time out doors. Camping and fishing and even working in backyards, I tend to have issues with mosquitos. The tea tree soap helps to keep them away. Tea tree has natural insect repelling properties anyway but by using Mary's soap rather than something loaded with artificial scents I'm far less appealing to biting bugs. I'm fairly sure it's lake friendly too. I'm the best smelling guy at the cottage and the bugs keep off. I bought four. I can't recommend Mary's soap enough for keeping clean at the campsite or cottage." Thanks Mary!
