Sasha's Soaps & Scrubs - New at Something of Value
Greetings, I would like to introduce myself along with my handmade natural soaps & scrubs.
My name is Sasha Pharr and the soaps and scrubs that I make from home are healing and relaxing. I use all natural ingredients in my products.  For my soaps I use a goats milk base that soothes and cleanses the skin and the essential fragrance oils that make you want to melt in the shower or bathtub.  For my scrubs I use natural sea salts, epsom salts that get rid of muscle aches and all organic natural oils (ricebran oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil) that moisturize the skin.
Nourish Your Body & Soul Naturally with Sasha's Soaps & Scrubs!
Soap Bars $5.50 for 4oz.  Body Scrubs $6.50 for 12oz.
Call in, make a payment over the phone and we will bring your item(s) out to you curbside
Make an in-store purchase, drive up to the front of the shop and we will bring your package out to your car curbside.
