HOMEMADE WATERMELON SOAP

When we think of watermelon, most of us might remember those summer days of soaking up the sun rays. Maybe eating some watermelon too! You might think of sitting out by the pool, beach, or porch. Just taking in the warmth and happiness that summer has to offer you and your loved ones. Our P&J Family absolutely loves summer and usually start the season a little early!

Thus, for those of you who might be a little eager for summer to arrive like we are, try making our homemade watermelon soap with us. Here at P&J Trading, we are so very excited for the summer months to come. We even just made batches of these watermelon soaps this past week! These soaps not only smell delicious but offer a fun way to start off the summer with your little ones. Or maybe use as a gift for your friends and family! Besides, why not start the season a little early if you’d like?
