In an unpolluted area like rural Newfoundland, the fresh air makes the nose more sensitive to scents. Many human-made scents, which are supposed to be pleasant, actually become irritating and offensive. All of us need to be careful about which chemicals we expose ourselves to.
A business here, in our lovely historic town, called East Coast Glow, makes delightful soaps from pure iceberg water, and wild ingredients foraged along our rugged coast.
The results are beautiful, aesthetically pleasing soaps. Each bar of soap is like a miniature work of art. As we pay more attention to the small details of our lives, including the soaps we use, gradually we enjoy more and more of the abundant life that the Lord desires for each of us.
