Here's what some of our customers have to say about Greenthoughts Gardens herbal soaps, oils, and balms.

It is the only soap I've found that relieves the rash flare-ups and symptoms from my lupus". Denise, Springfield, IL

"Her pet soap makes me smell pretty." Chewie Springfield, IL

"Got your Sweetgrass Prairie Soap as a Christmas gift last week. I'm using it as my shaving cream substitute, because it's soothing on my sensitive face. I'm really enjoying it." ~Dom

"Thank you very much for sharing a sample of your Lavenderberry soap with my three year old son - he won't use anything else (except perhaps bath toys) now to clean himself! I'm so glad you take the time to learn and practice wildcraft, and that you're so generous to share it with others." Tracy, St. Louis, MO

"I purchased bars of soap and a liniment for sore muscles. I love the soap - the fragrance reminds me of the countryside where the ingredients were grown. The bars are surprisingly long lasting and I use them as both shampoo and body soap. The liniment does just what it says - it soothes sore muscles. I use it for joint and muscle pain after exercising. The products arrived quickly and were extremely well-packaged. I couldn't be more happy with this, my first of many purchases, from Green Thoughts Garden. Highly recommended. Five star for sure!" Jerry, Palm Springs, CA

"I LOVE the patchouli soap. It smells wonderful, it exfoliates and the lather is like velvet!" Carla Redhead, Springfield, IL

"I have ultra-sensitive skin, her Oatmeal Honey soap has been a life-saver." Shawn Andrews, Virden, IL

"As always I am very satisfied with every item I've ever received from Green thoughts Garden, the soap scents not only smell amazing but they are pure and natural ingredients for our skin and body. I will always continue to shop from here, my absolute favorite bar of soap (after trying various different homemade soaps) the trippy hippy patchouli is my favorite. Thank you for selling safe, natural and afforadble products in your shop!! :)" Mahalia, FL

"Last week I went to the opening day of the Springfield Old Capitol Farmers Market and was fortunate to stop at the stall for Greenthoughts Garden.

Greenthoughts Garden sells herbal soaps, balms, body oils and skin care products that are hand grown and handmade. The owner grows the herbs in small batches and harvests and processes herself. And Oh. My. Gawd. can you tell when you use it! I bought her glorious Wild Rose herbal soap with rose hips, rosebuds, rose geraniums, lavender and rosemary. First of all, the soap has a nice lather and has exfoliating crumbles in it. Second, THE SMELL, the scent is out of this world. It's like bathing in a rose garden, a real rose garden, not a faked perfume rose garden.

I'm definitely going back one of these Wednesdays for Patchouli-Sassafras body oil - oh you say it's Wednesday today? Then it's my lucky day!" Posted by Henny Penny From Central Illinois blogger "Henny Penny" http://central-illinois.blogspot.com/2008/05/greenthoughts- garden-soap.html

"I have done business with this company several times, and always look forward to the next time. Not only do they provide prompt, courteous service, but the quality of their products is outstanding. It's always great to open my mailbox, and smell that package when it arrives!" Fred Hammes, Yakima, Wash.

"I'm an extremely satisfied customer! I now use the soaps from Greenthoughts Garden exclusively. Great product, great price, quick service, and heavenly scents!" Dave, Middlesex, NY

"Hi, Your shampoo bars are great. I purchased your shampoo bars last Summer at the Farmer's Market in Springfield and got hooked. Yea, I noticed my hair is growing faster using the shampoo bars. At your suggestion I have been using an apple cider vinegar rinse too. I ran out of the shampoo bars last week and had to resort to an unnamed store-bought bottle of shampoo. I could tell a difference right away. My hair is hard to comb out and is fly-away and full of static. Yes, I placed an order right away. See you in May." Sherry, Springfield, Illinois

"Your soap worked great for my dreads~ it left them clean & without any film!" Lauren, St. Louis, MO

"After only 4 applications of the Skin Balm, the rough skin on my hand turned soft & smooth" Greta, Springfield, IL

"Hi - I was given Comfrey Comfort as part of a gift and we absolutely love it. I just placed an order for several more." J. Craig

"I bought some comfrey mint body oil for my sore neck muscles today from Amy and it's amazing. Thank you Amy!" Delon, Springfield, IL

"I love your Comfrey Comfort, it truly helps with my arthritis in my knee and I just tried your soap, love that too. Thank you !!" Kathy, Springfield, IL
