Photo of the Day – July 22, 2010: Lavender Sachets, New from Nordea Soaperie!

If you haven’t tried the handmade soaps and beauty products from Nordea Soaperie, you are missing out on some fine quality soaps, body butters, lip balms, and more.  Proprietor Nordea McKoy uses artisanal soap making processes with incredible care and imagination.  I love the scents she creates, including cucumber/aloe and fig.  I haven’t tried the blue musk yet, but I look forward to it.  The “Oh What A Man” body bar is scented with sandalwood and a hint of lime, which is appealing to both men and women alike.

And now McKoy has focused her olfactory expertise on a new product line: lavender scented sachets for your drawers, linen closet, or inside your pillow.  She uses lavender essential oil, which makes these sachets very fragrant.  The scent will last a good, long time.  She embroiders each cotton muslin sachet by hand with sweet retro images, including Wally Whale (pictured), Lonely Robot,  Moon Man and Lovebird.  You can purchase them at the markets around New York City (check Nordea Soaperie’s Upcoming events page) and on

It seems to be lavender week at Markets of New York City.  Maybe that’s why I’ve been sleeping so well!
