CARLA CONNER OF CREATIVEARTH SOAPS PROVIDES THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION: YES, ONE CAN MAKE 10 BARS OF SOAP WITH A SINGLE CUP OF TEA!

I CANNOT STAND WASTE. AND HERE IN THE STATES THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT ONE CAN WASTE.  WHEN I FIRST INTRODUCED RED ESPRESSO TO ALBUQUERQUE, I WAS IMMEDIATELY CONCERNED ABOUT ANOTHER PRODUCT AND ITS WASTE GOING TO WASTE. I'VE EXPERIMENTED WITH VARIOUS WAYS TO EXTEND ITS USE BEFORE IT IS COMPOSTED IN EITHER OUR HOUSE PLANTS OR OUR DRY DESERT SOIL FOR A GARDEN.

ONE SATURDAY MORNING AT THE YOGA STUDIO I ATTEND, MI VIDA YOGA, ONE OF THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS/FELLOW YOGI, WAS POSITIONING HER HOMEMADE BARS OF SOAP IN A TINY CORNER OF THE RETAIL AREA AT THE FRONT OF THE STUDIO. THE SIMPLE, STRIKING NAME CREATIVEARTH SOAPS, STRUCK A CHORD WITHIN ME - ADD RED ESPRESSO, THE ROOIBOS PLANT FROM SOUTH AFRICA'S EARTH!

THE TINY LEAVES WOULD PROVIDE A FORM OF EXFOLIATION, AND THE BREWED TEA WOULD BE SOOTHING TO THE SKIN, WITH ITS IMMUNE-BOOSTING ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, AND ANTI-ALLERGIC PROPERTIES. WHA-LAH! NO MORE WASTE! AND ALL HEALTH AND GOODNESS TO A BAR!

CREATIVE ARTH  SOAPS : NOw WITH ADDED RED ESPRESSO

CARLA TOOK THE 1/4 AMOUNT OF LEAVES, REBREWED THEM, AND SAVED THE LIQUID. THEN SHE DRIED THE LEAVES AGAIN (ON THE TOP OF AN ALREADY HEATED STOVE IN READY FOR COOKING A MEAL), FOLLOWED BY GRINDING THEM INTO A FINER LEAF. WHEN SHE FELT IT WAS AT THE PERFECT SIZE, SHE ADDED THE SMALLER GROUND LEAVES TO THE SAVED BREWED LIQUID AND ADDED IT TO HER SOAP MIXTURE.

THE TINY BROWN FLECKS ARE THE GROUND EVEN FINER, RED ESPRESSO LEAVES

THE RESULT : A BEAUTIFUL, EARTHY COLOR WITH VISIBLE SOUTH AFRICAN RED ESPRESSO ROOIBOS LEAVES ADDING TEXTURE WITHOUT THE ROUGH, AND ALL THE GOODNESS FOR HEALTHY SKIN.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CONTINUUM TO THE ROOIBOS LEAF!

THANK YOU CARLA, FOR BEING OPEN TO TRY SOMETHING NEW, AND FOR BEING SO TENDER AND RESPECTFUL TO THIS SOUTH AFRICAN PLANT!
