Happy USA Thanksgiving & Get Ready for Cyber Monday Deals

It is Turkey Day! The year 2011 marks 390 years since America had its first pilgrim Thanksgiving. However, it wasn't until 1942 that Thanksgiving became a fixed holiday on the United States calendar. Now enough with history, on this day let’s all give thanks for the many blessings in our lives, like Cyber Monday.

Why Chef Soap is a Must for Your Kitchen

There are many of us who love to cook. Those who love to cook know the value of using fresh ingredients; fresh garlic (not the stuff in the jar), fresh meats, fresh cheeses, fresh herbs, and fresh vegetables.  Unfortunately, all of these fresh ingredients can leave your hands smelling less than fresh. That is why chef soap is a must for your kitchen.

Our chef soap, derived naturally from olive oil removes these pungent smells without leaving your hands dry and rough. 

There are many olive oil soap makers in the Middle East, but in keeping with the quality standards we wish to maintain, From the Earth is pleased to make available Olive Oil Soap from Al-Masbana. Al-Masbana (which means "producing soap" in Arabic), one of the oldest and finest producers of natural handmade Olive Oil Soap in Tripoli, Lebanon, to you. 

Al-Masbana is a family business that was started in 1880. They continue to use the finest of cold-pressed virgin olive oil and other natural ingredients, creating a quality product that is superior to most on the market today. 

The packaging on our chef shop is perfect for hostess gifts, for stocking stuffers, or for present exchanges. With the holidays arriving, why not stock up on a few bars of soap for those last minute or unexpected gift needs.

Amazon UK - not available

Pre-Thanksgiving Reminder + Super Salad Recipes

Thanksgiving is one week away. Let’s all give thanks to Amazon and Amazon UK for having fast shipping. This means you can purchase our unique, olive wood kitchen utensils now and still receive them in time for the big day. 

Whether you are looking for a hostess present or are hoping to impress your friends, the hand carved olive wood salad server set with spiral handles is sure to be a conversation starter. 

Not only are these servers lovely, but they also have a purpose beyond serving you and your guests salad. By purchasing this product you are supporting a fair trade company that employs local, Jordanian women.

Before this blog post ends, here are a few traditional middle eastern salad recipes for you to enjoy on turkey day. Who said Thanksgiving can't be multicultural?

Let’s all give thanks for turkey, for family, for friends, and for people like you who care enough to purchase fair trade products. Thanks!
