Wondering if the wooden bowl some soaps come with has any practical function other than aesthetics. They look pleasing, but I recall one gentleman's recent photo of one whose lid had warped badly after (I think) the first puck that came with it was gone. Which leads me to wonder how reusable they really are. Reason I am wondering is because I am thinking about getting a cake of GFT rose, which I would put into a pyrex bowl unless there is a better reason to get it in the wooden bowl. Concerned that the constant exposure of the wood to water and lather makes wood a poor choice. Thoughts? Thanks!
