Pretty as a Peacock

winner: Sandy









Peacock Republic is a purveyor of EcoLuxe soaps. I was lucky enough to try their liquid hand wash and facial/body bar soap recently and I knew I had to share it with you as part of our Tea Party. The products I received featured the exquisite Chai Tea Latte fragrance, a spicy, sweet scent perfect for cool Fall days… it actually warms me up! The cinnamon-gingery undertones also remind me of the holidays ahead.



Other proprietary Peacock Republic fragrances include Mint Bliss, Lemongrass Love, Lavender Hill, and the evocatively-named Fields of Grace, which is a blend of calendula petals, sage, spearmint and lemongrass. All are available as liquid hand soaps in a pump dispenser or bar soaps wrapped in plantable handmade paper that has been embedded with wildflower seeds.



Peacock Republic also offers handcrafted clay bowls and sculptural installation art.



To enter and win a set that includes one liquid hand wash and one facial/body bar soap, please visit Peacock Republic and comment on this post with your favorite finds. Let me know which fragrances you prefer in your comment, too.


Entries will be accepted through November 26th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


For an additional entry, post my button on your blog, fave me on Technorati or subscribe via email or subscribe via reader and leave an extra comment letting me know. You may also leave an extra comment with your favorite non-Tea Party post from any of my co-hosts' blogs!
