I have finally advertised my first bar of the lovely olive oil soap on ebay. I have an excuse honest, I have been busy (bad excuse, I have had plenty of time, I know). Also the soap improved with storage so it should be better now than when I first received it! If it sells then my sister-in-law will send me more. Photographs dont do it justice but my photgraphic sjills didnt actually improve much with the college course I attended last term. Sigh!
I have also managed to link my ebay ad to the blog ! This is easily the most sophisticated thing I have ever managed to do with the blog!
I have also been reading up about my beautiful soap.
Stacked Soap - curing prior to shipping out.
Aleppo soap was the first hard soap ever made. Small scale production methods and ingredients have not changed since the 8th Century, family secrets are kept. There are no artificial substabces, colouring, frangrances, preservatives or other artifical substacnes added. The product is 100% natural. Even today most of the processes are carried out my hand.
The Suq - original shopping mall from the time of the Crusaders, still in daily use.
More soap stacks - simple but truly beautiful.
