Orange & Cranberry

April 1, 2014

Fragrance: Freshly squeezed oranges kissed with tart cranberry.

Technique: Embeds

I was less than pleased with this soap.  It just didn’t quite work the way I wanted.  I was playing around with a new way to do embeds.  I made a bunch of round embeds to start.

Then I cut them in half or left them whole and placed them throughout the loaf.

Pink Sangria

March 28, 2014

Fragrance: A refreshing combination of zesty mandarin, raspberry , fresh blueberry and layered sweet sugar crystals..

Technique: Layering Embeds

This technique was really easy and I was surprised at how much I liked the final soap.  I just made a small batch of black and white soap and cut it up in thin slices. Then I made a new batch and embedded the slices into it.

New Recipe for Shaving Soap

March 8, 2014

I never really LOVED my previous shaving soap recipe.  It worked, but I just didn’t love it.  I finally got around to reformulated it.  It’s a blend of coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, Shea butter, castor oil, and apricot oil.  I also tried something a little different.  Instead of making them bars, I put them in twist tubes.  I’ve seen shaving soaps made both ways and I know I always drop mine in the shower.  I think the tube will make it easier to apply the soap.  I also think it work well for men.

Because it’s a new recipe and a new “container” I would like a few testers.  I have three scent options: Bay Rum, Old Spice, and Arabian Spice.  (All geared towards men.)  If there are any men out there who would like to test a sample bar let me know (or women if you know of a man who’d like to try it out) let me know.  I’ll send you a free bar.  All I ask is that you pay for the shipping cost.  I will include a questionnaire with the soap.  The questions will just be a guideline for you and it will give me feedback so I can see if I need to make changes or if it’s liked as is.
