When I think of Red, White, and Blue; instantly I think of America! The land of great opportunities. Which is held to high standards of freedom, the pursuit of happiness and justice for all. I think of my home! The USA is a big melting pot of people from all walks of life that deserves to smell amazing. And with Smells of freedom they shall. It is hard to put freedom, or justice or even the USA into a smell but when I made my post ‘Chasing the American Dream’, which in fact will be called Smells of Freedom – I made it with the goal of love and a subtle scent that has a powerful presence if that makes much sense.

First purchase the soap, second loath your brand new soap all over your skin, head to toe but careful with the eyes then rinse off and third but not least store the bar of soap into a soap dish away from puddles of water in order to have a long-lasting soap.
