“Lizette is the owner of this eco-friendly, homemade soap and personal care boutique. Her products feature essential oils and organic ingredients. I absolutely love the lavender-vanilla body scrub, the orange-sandalwood lotion and her "must have" traveler's bundle soap. It is a bouquet of many "slices" of custom made soap designed for individual use for travelers or someone wanting to sample something delicious in the shower or bath! We thought it so nifty that we decided to offer the travelers bundle at the Sweet Little House as a complimentary part of your stay. She even has personalized grooming products for the guys, too, including beard oil, shave cream and other masculine skin enchantments! Whatever your skin needs may be or whatever your olfactory senses may crave, Buffalo Girl has it! ”
