This reminds me of a stand in the NZ mall that I tried to walk past. All organic handmade soaps.. crickey they were the craziest combos ever and they smelled dreadful.. I'm talking chocolate and lavender.. both are nice separate but combined.. YUCK!
OP I believe it's easy to make your own soaps just don't go making ones without making sure the scents blend well :P Or if you go scentless that they aren't bigger than a brick.
I used to carve soaps when I was little :) It was really fun and made my hands smell pretty. Now coffee grounds in soap? Sounds interesting..
