Frankincense & Myrrh (a.k.a Starry Night)

December 2, 2015

Frankincense & Myrrh (a.k.a Starry Night) is one of my favorite winter soaps.  The design is just lots of fun (though a pain to make!)  Once again I had to change fragrances this year.  The original blend I used last year got changed.  And the new blend no were near as good.  I ended up blending two different scents to get this mix of Frankincense & Myrrh:

First:

Frankincense & Myrrh: Traditional riches of blended frankincense with myrrh.

Second:

Three Wise Men: A classic favorite of frankincense, myrrh, patchouli and warm, powdery sandalwood.

The two together really work well.  I call this my “church” soap.  It just reminds me of church time over the holidays.  If you like Frankincense and Myrrh scents I think you’ll enjoy this soap.

Those pesky annoying star embeds!

Sugared Spruce

November 30, 2015

Sugared Spruce: A sweet and fresh blend of pine needles, orange, strawberry and a touch of sugared vanilla.

I sold out of this soap in 2 days. I brought it to two events and all 16 bars went.  Next year I’ll make a larger batch!


Apple Balsam Pine

October 31, 2015

I saw this light bulb mold and thought I could make a really cool soap with it. I DID NOT expect the fragrance to set up super fast.  It meant I didn’t get to embed the light bulbs at a leisurely pace.  Inside didn’t quite end up how I wanted it to, but the top is cute and I like it.

Apple Balsam Pine: A unique blend of juicy apple, cassis, jasmine and Siberian fir.

It started off with me making LOTS of light bulbs.

I then figure out the exact order I wanted to put them in the soap in and had them lined up and ready to go (not that that helped much with the acceleration!).

This was after I poured and pipped the light bulb strings. My goal was to make it look like a string of Christmas lights.

And here you go: I had to add some real lights to the picture!

Frosted Pinecones & Santa’s Tree Farm

October 21, 2015

I have been trying to find a new pine to add to my winter soaps.  I got four different winter/pine type scents.  Not sure which I like best so it’ll be interesting to see what my customers think.

Santa’s Tree Farm: It’s the aroma of freshly cut evergreen branches. Reminiscent of a refreshing walk through a tree farm as your family prepares to cut down their season tree on a cool winter day.

Pretty winter tiger swirl anyone? I’m quite in love with this soap!

Frosted Pinecones: is a wonderful blend of herbaceous pine and spruce, combined with notes of rosemary, carnation, cedar, and hints of spice.

Spiced Cranberry

October 15, 2015

The ever popular Spiced Cranberry!  I’ve made this soap for the past three years now and it always sells.

Spiced Cranberry: a refreshing blend of cranberry relish and orange zests with hints of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

I kept the same design concept as last year.  I’m frustrated that the brown didn’t get darker, but otherwise I love the fall colors of this soap.

In the pot swirl embeds!

Apples & Oak

September 30, 2015

Three years ago I made this soap. I really liked it even though it wasn’t one of my most popular scents that year. I felt like apple soap when I was buying fragrances one day and decided it was coming back this year! If nothing else, I’d get my fix of apple.

Apples & Oak

A blend of McIntosh and Granny Smith apples, with notes of woodsy fresh oak leaves and oak moss.

Turkish Mocha

September 28, 2015

It’s back! I’m not a coffee person, but this scent went over really well last year. So, it’s back! I’ve changed up the design though.  Let’s not talk about the trouble embedding those chocolate pieces were :P.

Turkish Mocha

It starts with creamy top notes of milk, cardamom, cocoa and a touch of nutmeg. The alluring, complex blend winds down to heady scents of vanilla and honey run, and of course, Turkish Coffee.
