When I make a batch of soap, I cut off the end pieces so othat I can cut consistent, uniform bars of soap that are the same shape, weight and size. These small end pieces are still great soaps, but smaller than usual. They're perfect if you want to test out a wide variety of my products without committing to a full priced, full sized bar. They're awesome for traveling, too! Going away for a night or two? You can take your favorite soaps with you without worrying about leaving them behind! Put some beside your bathroom sink, use them in the guest bathroom, put one in your dresser drawer and use it as a sachet!
