NuMe Natural Soap
The last oils you rubbed on your skin were of the Hawaiian Tropic variety. There were top notes of artificial coconut.
Alas, no exotic beach locale was involved.
Deanna Sellers, creator of essential oil-based NuMe soaps, slathers on only the good stuff.
Sellers is one part chemist (who knew it was so scientific to make soap?), one part hippie (she started making bars for her kids’ sensitive skin), and one part fragrance tailor (take her four ounces of an essential oil, and she’ll create a few dozen bars of your signature scent).
She mixes and stamps batches in her Woodstock kitchen. Our favorite scents are rosemary eucalyptus, lavender vanilla, and honey almond.
Your own lathered paradise. No passport required.
NuMe Natural Soap (770-366-0793 or numenaturalsoap.com). Available at The Broadwell Cottage, 765 Mid Broadwell Road, Milton (770-777-0444); Davonshire Home and Garden, 1430 Dresden Drive, suite 200, Brookhaven (404-437-7826).

Kirklands’ Wood Garden Protecting Potions
A rose is a rose is a rose. Until it’s a puncture wound and a wrecked manicure. Then it’s a @$%^&** piece of $$$%% of a rose.
But you digress. Hopefully just long enough to pick up Kirklands’ Wood gardener care products.
Union Point-based farmer/mixer Kirk Moore applies skills he learned as a Colonial Williamsburg gardener to growing and bottling garden pest deterrents that are safe to flora and fauna alike.
If the names don’t give ’em away, the results will. No Does’s dehydrated egg solids and white pepper alter deer feeding patterns for up to three years; Slug-go’s mix of subterranean minerals keeps things clear of peskies; and arnica-based repair lotions and waterless cleansers work like a charm just when you’re ready to give your garden the finger.
And we don’t mean your green thumb.
Available at Madison Gardener, 144 Academy Street, Madison (706-486-4630); online at smithsbathandhome.com.
