    I love the Clary Sage Lemongrass! It removes all musk/odors and leaves the skin so fresh and moisturized. Also, the scented soap aroma lasts well on skin.

    While we no longer live in the Tampa Bay area, we do visit your store and purchase your products at every visit. I would like to inquire about your “Dead Sea Mud” which I don’t see on your website. My wife uses it and swears by it’s quality and result. Is this product still available and can we have some sent to Seattle?

      Oops…. we do very much still do dead sea mud. I have been in the U.K and fallen behind with my web maintenance. I will get it back on line as soon as I get a chance and set up an order page. Meanwhile you may order via phone 727 937 8193. Thanks for pointing this out and helping me notice that we have about 50 products that are not on the website. I had better get my camera out and get to work before my wife notices. sincerely Russell Oakley.

      Good question. We have discontinued carrot soap and I am mad about it. I love carrots and I love them in my soap. Unfortunately it seems that most people don’t appreciate the subtle smell and we do not sell enough to produce a batch. As business picks up in the future carrot is on my list to bring back. I wish I could bring it back right now and send you some. Since pure carrot oil is really expensive and really good for your skin we hope to launch an all natural organic moisturizer in its place. Best wishes. All at

      yes we still make them eleni makes them and adjusts the recipe all the time making it difficult to list online. They also sell out fast. I try to tell her to be more consistent so we could list them on the web but she shouts at me. She has promised to make larger and more consistent batch so we can put them online in the future…..we shall see. thanks for your interest in Getaguru and I hope you are able to drop in and visit us.

    I recently relocated to St. Petersburg Florida from Manhattan. I always heard about the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs so I went to check it out. It’s full of pushy Greek people literally harassing you and pushing you into their trashy little shops with factory made garbage soaps and dried out sponges that are left out in the 100 degree florida heat to die. Then I came across Getaguru. Your store stands out from the rest. It looks like a very artsy East Village type of shop which intrigued me to go inside plus nobody was standing outside harassing me to go in. I was so pleased to see REAL all natural olive oil soaps In different varieties. My favorites are lemon verbena, rose, patchouli, and of course the goats milk. Your shop is ten times better and way cheaper than going to LUSH, Whole Foods, or Earth Origins. Every month I drive up to Tarpon Springs to stock up on my favorite soaps. All I have to say is THANK YOU for not being pushy. Even when I’m looking at the soap there is nobody yelling at me about what I should buy and how many to buy. You’re business is a class act and it is the only shop in Tarpon Springs that I will use my money at.

    I have been buying your soap religiously for about 6 or 7 years now and have converted at least 3 other people to your soap. There is nothing like it anywhere else and no matter where I have bought before, yours is head and shoulders above the rest. What do you do that is so different? Are you magic?

    several years ago I purchased patchuli/cinnamon soap. The best I have ever used, and the smell was hevenly. Do you think you may be making it again. I would be tempted to buy the whole batch.
