further. wash responsibly.

I LOVE the concept behind Further Soap. Apparently, glycerin is a by-product of the biofuel distillation process. Who knew?! Well, the couple behind Further soaps, that’s who…

Further soaps and candles are made from the leftover grease from Mario Batali and Nancy Silverton’s restaurant Mozza in L.A.. Unbelievable! {I had a life-altering food-experience there involving a marrow bone…but I’ll save the details for another time}. The signature fragrance is from the essential oils of Bergamot, Olive, and exotic grasses. Lovely!

As a little aside, and as some of you may know, my husband is partnered with Mario Batali…so I’m a bit of a fan! Um…truth be told, I’m a huge, crazed fan…My hubby makes the ovens that have Mario’s name. See them here {shameless self-promotion}.

Hope your weekend is fabuloso!
