This past week I had an opportunity to go to Van Etten, NY. Of course my first thought was seeing the fall foliage along the way. This time of year the hills of the Finger Lakes region are dotted with red, gold and orange. The views are breathtaking!
As I was driving along I passed a sign for Finger Lakes Soap Co. Of course I was intrigued and had to stop. Boy was I happy I did! This cute, little shop is worth checking out.
When you walk in, the amazing smells will instantly surround you! As you would expect from the name, they have a variety of soaps but I also found candles, shampoo’s and so much more.
The scents are all made with a local twist. The Macintosh apple hand soap smells like you just bit into a juicy apple plucked right from the tree. I couldn’t resist bringing a bottle home!
If you are looking to take a relaxing drive to do some leaf peeping, head toward Van Etten. These winding back roads are perfect for viewing the fall colors and they will take you right by the Finger Lakes Soap Co. Do yourself a favor and stop in to look around and smell the delicious scents. If you want to check them out before you go their website is http://www.fingerlakessoap.com
A funny little side note – I realized after I got back home, the hand soap in my bathroom was made by the Finger Lakes Soap Co. I bought it at a winery over the summer. It smells amazing!
Thanks for exploring with me – Shelly
