Fantastic-smelling soap, makes skin smooth

Before I go rave about how much I love this soap, a word of warning - the scent is not for the faint of heart or those who avoid incense and Lush stores for too much fragrance. This soap, similarly to the Chandrika green soap, smells a lot. And it smells good and it leaves the scent on the skin after washing - it lingers a long while. If you prefer unscented or mildly scented products, this is certainly not for you. If you love Oriental and Indian scents, however - BUY THIS. In my opinion it smells amazing, it lathers up very well, and while the bar is small, it isn't expensive. Works as a bathroom air freshener as well, just sitting in the soap dish. It has an interesting effect on skin - it makes it feel a little dry right after use (but I do have dry skin to begin with), however, after moisturizing, I noticed that this soap makes the skin feel much smoother despite not feeling at all gritty when I used it. I suspect there is something in the ingredients that naturally exfoliates the skin, accounting for both the smoothness and the slightly-dry feeling.
Excellent and moisturizing!

I use this on my hands instead of hand cream, and occasionally all over body after shower or bath. It absorbs quickly, does not leave a greasy feeling and smells amazing! I craft and cook a lot so my hands are in and out of water frequently - this helps against dry fingers and cuticles wonderfully. Definitely recommended!

Fine grained beads, melt quickly - convenient for crafts. Smell faintly of honey.
Very gentle shampoo

I use this on my fine, henna-treated hair, and am very happy with the results. Plus, the scent is wonderful!

Very nice bath salts with Epsom salt component which is good for sore muscles. Smells great, literally like a fresh Christmas tree!
Not the hugest and best-looking I've ever received, but way better than average store-bought ones.
Large, clean sunflower seeds.
Not much else to add, other than they are great in bread, and that I didn't see any bits of peel in the bag (a good bonus as those frequently happen with shelled seeds).
This flour has a very mild taste, not at all like the usual whole wheat flours' bitter aftertaste. I've tried it in flatbreads, and look forward to making carrot cake with it shortly.
Have tried it in a couple of recipes so far

This works well enough in bakery. My boyfriend is allergic to egg whites and this allows me to make spongy cakes and banana bread and the like without compromising quality. Really like it.

Smells great, moisturizing like other Nubian Heritage soaps. I would prefer to buy the coconut one though.
