A Wee Drunk Leprechaun...

Welcome to our St. Patty's Day Challenge!

Four Green Fields by Oil & Spice


It's the time of year
for green colored beer
so join your Irish kin
and drink with your skin
because St. Patrick's Day is finally here!

Erin Go Bragh by Krug's Eco-Logic


Let me introduce myself
Erin Go Bragh is my name
After you've used me
You won't be quite the same

Erin translates to Ireland
and thus the inspiration for me
Oh home country, I pledge to thee
my heart, my soul, my loyalty

Tricolour of orange, green & white
I promise my allegiance to thee
Any day
All evening and night

Erin Go Bragh - I'm so fresh and clean
You just won't want to turn off your shower
Lavender, Lime, Orange and Peppermint
You'll want to smell me for hours

So take me into your shower now
and let me get down to business
I promise to clean and make you smell fresh
... and afterward have yourself a bottle of Guinness



ShamRocks by Native Sprout Soap


There once was a fellow from Dublin
Who was known quite well for his stumblin'
He almost always was drunk
And danced around in a funk
We wondered what he could be mumblin'

One day he was approached by a girl
She had hair scarlet red with a curl
He couldn't take his eyes off her
It seemed she made him an offer
We all wondered what would unfurl

The darling girl couldn't have been keener
And the man began looking leaner
We all had our doubt
What this was about
He surely had never looked cleaner

She was seen collecting from the ocean
Many thought she was making a potion
Then she opened a store
We couldn't wait to explore
For so long had our wheels been in motion

The little mans drinking of malt
Had certainly come to a halt
Her store smelled amazing
Many things made for bathing
His craving now seaweed and salt

Locks O' Luxe by Bambu Earth


Some days your locks are a hot mess
Surly look more like a bird's nest
You've searched and you've prayed
To be humbly dismayed
And give up and pout in distress

You might be searching in the store
But you are searching for much more
Don't you worry my dear
I have the secret here
The shampoo you've been waiting for

Rosemary infused into this blend
Mint and Basil from roots to ends
Lavender for soothing
Lime for refreshing
Those dry locks in no time will mend

Followed up with the conditioner
Makes this Luxe set a no brainer
An apple cider mix
Is sure to do the trick
This one's for him too, not just her

Lucky Leprechaun Pot of Gold Soap by Starlet Glam Bath & Body


There was a wee leprechaun named McQueen
Who always wanted to be seen
Taking a wrong path
Got dirty and needed a bath
And now feeling very mean

On with a merry day
Needing a bath in a bad way
A bar soap was found with a pot of gold
With a blarney stone scent that was oh so bold
This was a lucky day

Definitely in need
Was this beautiful green soap indeed
On with a merry day
Being clean in a big way
And feeling good enough to succeed

Irish Eyes by Fresh & Clean


There once was a wee drunk leprechaun
Who couldn't seem to get his specs on
His tears and his cries
From his wild Irish eyes,
Made his efforts more like a marathon!

He was a dirty wee thing
but oh, how he loved bling!
He decided to get clean,
with the soap so green
This bar was just the thing!

It was scented with limes
so happening with the times
Green, and bright
And what a sight!
His soap washed away all the grime.

Irish Shamrock Bath Fizzies by Thistle Delight


You go for a wee dram to the pub
Then after you soak in the tub
In Ireland it's seen
A fizzie that's green
And a scent that you will just luv

You get three in a wee bag
They are dressed in the flag
We know you will smile
As you soak for a while
Sipping wine and reading a mag

Scented with Green Irish Tweed
Hiding them you will find is a need
The wee folk will come
As they all want some
A beautiful shamrock indeed.

Greentea & Bamboo by Earthtones Bath


If you ever like to be seen
And St. Paddy’s day is the theme
You have to make soap
But not on a rope
With bamboo and a tea that’s green

Inspired by the Irish meadows
That’re always green never yellow
No shamrocks here
For that’s way too clear
And clover’s a meddlesome fellow

The scent of this soap stands out
Not so commonly found about
You’ll be fresh all day
Without the cliché

You’ll love this without a doubt

O'Malley's Peppermint Clove Whipped Body Butter by Fullearth's, etc.


O'Malley, A leprechaun true
had problems with his wooden shoes.
They chaffed his wee heels,
and made his skin peel.
What was poor O'Malley to do?

With a head and mug full of ale,
he tripped off to check his email!
He scrolled all through the ads,
with their silly do-dads,
but all of their remedies failed.

Then, while surfing the web that same night,
O'Malley found to his delight,
a site he felt sure,
that might give him a cure
to his terrible skin peeling plight!

Fullearth's "e" "t" "c" was it's name,
and natural skin care was it's game.
Filled with all sorts of charms,
healing butters and balms,
"No fake stuff" was it's claim to fame.

There he found soaps made of Shea,
lip balms that were made the same way,
salt scrubs with anise,
a veritable feast
of almond and clove oils, "hurray!"

Then with a wee happy shudder,
he stumbled across body butter!!
Just right for his heels,
They'd no longer peel!!
To this day, he uses no other!

Pot 'O Gold 'N Shimmer by Bath Buddies


No clothes of green need to be worn this year,
Toss out those lime shoes and socks that you fear.
Just a soak and some shimmer,
And you’ll feel like a winner.
You’ll be glad that you listened, my dear!

Irish Sea by Karramandi


There once was a soap named Irish Sea
Which was up for sale to all on Etsy
"I'm all natural" it cried"
With essential oils inside
And my color from spirulina algae"

Powder of Irish Cream by Get Lathered


Presenting: Powder of Irish Crème

For the Safeteam’s St Paddy’s Day theme.
Taste the honey and clover
As you dust it all over
With feathers that will make you scream!

by Pink Parchment Soaps


There once was a wee old cupcake
That no one ever ate
Day after day it sat
Wondering if people would get fat
And now it was getting rather late

It started to dream
That it smelled like butter cream
Was calorie free
And could one day be
Fit for a queen

All dressed in green
and not at all obscene
came along shamrock
not wearing any dreadlocks
Just in time to get you clean

St. Patrick's Day Bubble Bars by KB Shimmer


I once found man in dressed green
His hat was so shiny it gleamed
A rainbow lead the way to the treasure
Where I took the hat for good measure
Shiny things I did seek
The shimmer makes me weak
Oh that gold is such a true pleasure

Now I must leave quick not stay
To my home I must find the way
With his hat on my head
Quickly I fled
To much of the green man's dismay

Capture the memory I must
>Bubbles, good scents, and gold dust
Micas so shiny
Ginger oh so limey
Painted I did like an artist

Irish Sunshine Lotion Bar by The Skin You're In


A lad from Limerick named Liam
Was tattered and torn from the bringin’
of fish from the Shannon
he sat all day tannin’
until he was burned on his skinin.

This is a true story for sure,
His rough skin,
there wasn’t a cure
His wife’s little sister
Had a cure for his blister
So she made up a lotion he could endure.

Now, he wouldn’t use nothin’ all girly
It couldn’t smell frilly and pearly
And Sue made up a bar
That came in a jar
And for sure it was manly and burly.


Lucky You.... by Anhoki


There is a girl who makes some awesome creme
People love it and say it is a dream
Aloe and Green Tea
Chamomile yippee
This ever so fantabulous creme

There was this man who tried this creme
This man, he said, it IS a dream
he had a bad itcha very bad itch
This man who tried this awesome creme

This somewhat jokester of a man did say
This awesome creme... it made his day
He "says" it made things grow
Which made my face glow and glow
This jokester's wife smiled that day

There is a girl who makes some awesome creme
People love it and say it is a dream
Aloe and Green Tea
Chamomile yippee
This ever so fantabulous creme.

Fizzing Leprechaun Bath Coins in O’Ceallaigh and Oakmoss by Soap Scentsations


There was a wee man of Ireland olde
Who didn’t hide, but washed in his gold.
It fizzed in his bath
Whilst he bubbled and laughed.
Smellin’ of Oakmoss and O’Ceallaigh I’m told.
