IN A LATHER
Ditch the basic bar of soap and reach for one of the new shea butter soaps from FarmHouse Fresh ($11.50 each). First, choose your scent: Coconut Cream (a mix of coconut and tonka bean), Citrine Beach (a blend of lime, coconut and rum) or Front Porch Punch (a sangria-like combo of strawberry, grapefruit, mango, melon and peach). Then lather up and watch the 97-percent natural bar get to work. Thick enough to shave with, the hydrating soaps feature a nourishing blend of shea butter, olive oil and sweet almond oil. Find the soaps and other FarmHouse Fresh products at local spots like Sanibel Day Spa (239-395-2220, sanibeldayspa.com), the Spa at ’Tween Waters Inn on Captiva (239-472-7722, tween-waters.com/the-spa) and the Green Leaf Day Spa in Fort Myers (239-334-1400, thegreenleafdayspa.com).
