I love the idea of handmade soap as wedding favors. These soaps, from Life Tree Botanicals have some yummy scents that you can choose from like: smooth peppermint, wild oats and apple, cedarwood chamomile and a bunch more. Life Tree Botanicals also offers gift baskets which would be a nice gift for your out of town guests. Check out the website for details on how to obtain a sample. Lead time for your event is 3 weeks.
