Clowns......(elllll....shiver...yech) -can't stand 'em. Never could -even as a kid I thought they were C-R-E-E-P-Y.
I know, I know, there are wonderful folks who dress up for charity, and more supportive of that I could not be.....but clowns still creep me out. To me, there is something disturbing about a painted-on-unreadable-face. Call me crazy (a bit Kramer-ish?)
So, imagine how I felt when I cut this soap today
o.k. -not really sinister, but get a load of this one:
Yikes! It's like having "Chuckie" curing on my rack! LOL!
Plus -freakier still, THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN THIS WEEKEND AND WE'RE GOING! AAAARGH! LOL!
On a more serious note (but not much) I bought some lovely-sounding "Essential Oil Blends" that were not "certified"....methinks mesmells a "fragrance" slipped into one of them.
1. It clogged my nose & gave me a headache almost immediately upon soaping with it (EOs have NEVER done that to me -EVER, but "fragrance oils" often have this effect -one of the reasons I don't use 'em)
2. I couldn't get the scent out of the house! I've had every exhaust fan running for HOURS -I've never had an EO linger like that!
3. It started to really seize up my soap (my recipe NEVER does that with EOs)
I'll be chatting with the company that I bought them from tomorrow. Their website says they allow "easy returns" -I'm hoping that's true. I suppose that I will attempt to exchange them for the "certified pure" varieties. I'm disappointed and hope that the other varieties I've received don't contain fragrance....because they do smell nice. I can't stand headaches, though, and I suppose I'm fortunate that what brings them on is so glaringly obvious.
Friends and Relations be advised: I may be giving some "Nearly Natural" and "Freaky-Clown" Soaps as gifts this year! LOL! If you happen to receive one? Well, try to act surprised, o.k.? :)
