Bathing is important! We vegans have to ward off those demonic rumors about us being stanky beasts, so finding kickass, gorgeous-smelling soaps is key, yo! Deets on one of my fave soap makers, WEBA (Whole Earth Body Actives) Natural Products: Every soap (~$6) is handmade and environmentally-friendly, using high quality and organic ingredients (palm oil free, too)—and their soaps are intended to help set the mood (you moody, betch!)! ALSO, their soaps are SLS-free, gluten-free, soy-free and they smell hellamazing (← okay, did I not just create a bomb-ass new word? I think I done did!) I can’t forget to mention that their packaging is SO beautiful! These soaps make perfect gifts (you know, my half-birthday is coming up in September)!

“Indulge” Shea & Cocoa Butter Bar Soap – This bar is my fave! Why? Because it contains CHOCOLATE!! Well, sort of… cocoa powder, actually. This bar smells insane, and I would totes eat it if it said I could on the label. Read these ingredients and drool: Saponified organic oils (extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil), organic cocoa butter, organic shea butter, organic sweet almond oil, vegetable glycerin, organic cocoa powder, essential oils of sweet orange, pink grapefruit, and cinnamon. YUM!
