Frugal Friday find: 4 Maine-made soaps for $4 or less

Written by: Laura Serino

Tree Trunk Soap from Wings of a Fairy Herbs, $4

They call this the “naked in the woods” scent, which I can totally get behind.


Exfoliating Lemon Poppyseed Soap from Blissfully Simple Shop, $4

The goats milk moisturizes, the poppy seeds exfoliate and the lemon oil and peel smells like heaven.


Everything and the Kitchen Sink Soap from Green Barn Soaps, $3

A nice travel tin of soap made from a mix of goat and rice milk with a bit of peppermint oils.


Goat Milk Soap from Chubby Bubbles Bars, $3

Goat milk, honey, oatmeal and vanilla bean! I can’t tell if I’m hungry or if I want a bath.
