Fragrance: Spicy-sweet blend of French verbena and lemon, a green Florentine iris and violet leaves, and sublime notes of Mysore sandalwood and ambergris.
Technique: Beer soap, soap stamp (dusting in mica)
Every time I’ve made beer soap the soap has gotten really dark, so this time I decided to work with it and do a white stamp on top. And of course this time it didn’t get any darker than what you see in the picture …guess that’s how it works sometimes.
And despite trying to get the bottle to photograph I couldn’t get my camera to focus

And I’m officially playing around with new scents and new designs again! First one up: Amazon Lily & Rain.
Amazon Lily & Rain Fragrance Oil: A light scent that smells just like line dried linen. The aroma is pleasantly comforting with notes of fresh cut grass and pine enveloped by sweet florals.
I got this fragrance to have for March/April (part of my spring line). I am not a floral person, but I have to say if you like florals this is really nice in the soap. Bramble Berry’s image on their webpage with this fragrance totally inspired this design!
I love the purple! Turned out much more bold than I thought it would. And then the top layer is an in the pot swirl of white and yellow. It all worked out perfectly. Just love the design of this one!
This soap will be available on my webpage the first week of March!

Sometimes I see something that inspires me and I sit and make it and it comes out great. The peppermint bark soap was one of those instances! I made a CP version and a MP version. I’m happy with both.

Sometimes I feel that soap making can be like watching the clouds. I used to always try and find shapes and animals and other objects in the swirl of the clouds. This latest batch of Fresh Snow soap I felt like a kid again finding animals in every slice of soap!
Bat/Bird (depending on how I look at this one I see multiple animals):
Pumba (Remember Pumba from the Lion King? I swear I see him in this soap!):
Dragon (This one is my favorite!):
There you have it animals in soap! Do you see them too?
