Well, it’s been a while since your intrepid correspondent checked in with Penelope over at the Soapothecary, but what awaited me struck me really as sort of visual, and tactile, art as well an olfactory pleasure that I didn’t fully recall.
But it all came back to me quickly. They say your sense of smell is the source of your most vivid recollections.
People wandered in and out and she let everyone know that touching and smelling the product was a good thing (except when it’s some of her natural laundry detergent since it’s a powder), in order to get the full measure of all the types of soap available.
Right now, she’s dreaming up something for Jim Thorpe’s Earth Day Celebration, an event that grows each year. And there’s a clear fit – everything is made with natural vegetable ingredients, and no animals are involved.
In general, there’s the fragrant air of creativity, especially when you peruse the various new soaps that have been just made, but not yet cut into bars.

When you get there, just relax and let your senses take it in. The store is really an extension of Penelope herself, and you couldn’t be more welcome. Enjoy!
