This year like every year in the Fall, my Sweetie goes Fishing with the GUYS.
Has been like this for well over thirty years.
Last year I sent SPECIAL Soap for all that participated.
The results I was told were gigantic.
The perfect soap for fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts. It keeps the bugs off, masks the human scent, attracts fish, and contains fine pumice for exfoliating. With anise essential oil, this bar makes a great gift for the sportsman as well as a useful household soap, especially when preparing raw fish or meat. The smell of licorice (anise) masks human odor and that fish are attracted to its smell. As an added benefit anise oil has strong antibacterial qualities.
This year I needed something different.
