I've found a new-to-me favourite soap. It's full of invigorating herbs grown by a local herbalist, and is made by soap-maker Jean Barry, who has a shop in Penzance. Her workshop is in a converted and restored barn just outside St Just, on the Tinner's Way, a path which follows the ancient route taken by the tin miners to transport copper and tin from the mines on the cliffs around Botallack, to the waiting ships in St Ives.
This soap is bursting with the fragrant smell of thyme, and is my go-to soap for my morning shower.

I'm pausing now until next week - a family visit beckons. When I get back I can finally share a project very dear to my heart, which I've frustratingly had to keep under wraps since Christmas!
