Navi’s Handmade – Soaps and More!
Did you notice the shelf full of bath goodies in the main picture? Those bath bombs, bath salts, and sugar scrub all come from my friend Navi of Navi’s Handmade.
I have horribly sensitive skin that breaks out in hives at the least provocation. (Did you know you can actually be allergic to the sun? Apparently it’s true!). I tend to stay away from fancy, scented products because I’m never sure how my skin will react.
I’ve used several of Navi’s bath products now and have never had any sort of skin reaction at all.The scents are lovely too, and his bath bombs have become one of my favorite treats.
