Waking the Dead


Like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, One With Nature’s Dead Sea mineral soaps are infinitely greater than the sum of their parts. Each bar contains 21 different minerals that exfoliate and rich shea butter that soothes, a combination without rival in your shower caddy; not even your shampoo-conditioner hybrid is 100% vegetable-based and free of artificial colors, fragrances, and animal ingredients. Plus, One With Nature helps preserve its soap's fragile namesake by supporting Friends of Earth Middle East. The 7-ounce bars are available in 16 scents, such as Granny Smith, Rose Petal, and Coco Walnut, and sell for $3.79. However, in the tradition of new and refreshing pairings – dual salt and pepper shaker, anyone? – One With Nature is offering a Valentine's Day treat: a pack of three different soaps for $9.99. Visit the One With Nature website to give those chocolate-covered pretzels a run for their money.
