Win Garden Voyage Botanicals Soaps in Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest
For our August 2016 Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest, Washington Gardener is giving away a set of new botanical soaps that were inspired by public gardens. (The prize pack is valued at $20.)
There’s nothing quite like the natural smells of garden herbs and flowers. So it’s no surprise that the all-natural, made-in-America soaps from Garden Voyage Botanicals were inspired by long walks through the world-class botanic gardens in the Delaware Valley.
The fragrant soaps from Garden Voyage Botanicals produce a rich, creamy lather than leaves skin feeling clean and rehydrated. The Gardener’s Soap contains cranberry seeds, the essence of the Southern Bayberry shrub (Myrica cerifera) and delicate notes of floral, balsam and spice to provide a pleasant garden aroma. Lavender Soap contains lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia) to provide a calming, stress-reducing fragrance. Peppermint Soap features peppermint essential oil (Mentha x piperita) to energize both the mind and body. All three soaps contain Shea butter, Certified Sustainable palm oil, and natural botanical ingredients. Gardener’s Soap, Lavender Soap, and Peppermint Soap come in 5-ounce, triple-milled bars that sell for $6.95 each at garden centers and online at www.gardenvoyage.com.
To enter to win the soap set, send an email to WashingtonGardener@rcn.com by 5pm on Wednesday, August 31, with “Garden Soap” in the subject line and in the body of the email tell us which was your favorite article in the August 2016 Washington Gardener Magazine issue and why. Please also include your full name and mailing address. The winner will be announced and notified on September 1.
We have a winner! Congratulations to Elizabeth Berry of Washington, DC. Her entry was chosen at random from among those submitted. We know she will enjoy the relaxing and restorative scented soaps :-).
