The Soap Tribune, Issue #045--Summer Vacation
August 19, 2021

Summer Vacation

August is a time to relax and enjoy life. Go for a hike, bike ride, swim, read that book you've been putting off reading because you've been so busy.

The Northeast Region of the Catskill Park is one of my favorite places to go. Head over to Phoenicia, NY for some great hiking, camping, lunch at one of the many terrific eateries in Phoenicia and Woodstock, and camping essentials at The Nest Egg on Main Street, like Ithaca Soap and LiXTiK Lip Balm.

Beeswax Lip Balm


The best kitchen soap is the dishwashing liquid that leaves your dishes, pots and pans, utensils, and all of your kitchen tools sparkling clean and free of any soap residue or smell. It is imperative that my dishes showcase the the food and not the dishwashing liquid used. This includes my canning jars.

Canning isn't that hard to do, but it is critical that your jars are perfectly clean, otherwise you will be sealing in unwanted bacteria.

What's your opinion

We have used 100% water processed essential oils for the life of our company. The Lemongrass essential oil we have been using for the last 17 years is what I call grassy. We are considering replacing it with a more perfume-y Lemongrass essential oil.

For all of you long time lemongrass fans, what's your opinion? It's important to us.
