Irish-American soapmaker, Cindy Helgason was in town, and Corey and I couldn’t resist getting together with her to rehash the good times we had on the Des Moines stop of our Irish-American Roadtrip… has it really been nine months already?!?
Cindy had a gorgeous bar of her Irish flag soap on hand for us… love its scent called “Inis” – which means “island” in Irish. This time she insisted we keep the bar for ourselves… so this one WON’T be a giveaway item, and I can’t say I’m disappointed about that 🙂
I must confess, I’m a huge fan of Cindy’s soaps… and she’s pretty swell herself.
You can purchase a few bars for yourself from www.soapourri.com. She has a great line of Irish-themed soaps on page 2 in her OFF-SEASON category… including some great soaps in the shape of the Claddagh and her Irish Oatmeal Soap that she crafted just for US!
