Almond Biscotti

August 29, 2015

I have been asked repeatedly over the years if I have an almond soap.  So, last year I made a small batch of almond biscotti soap in the Fall. It sold out in less than a month. I brought it back this year! I changed up the design a bit and I really like how it turned out.  If you like almond this smells just like almond extract to me!

A mixture of toasted almonds, sweet cake flour, and drizzled chocolate.

2015 Fall Soaps

August 26, 2015

I picked out my fall soaps (most of them) back in February this year.  For all that time I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do design wise.  About a week before I was set to start making them (in the end of July) everything just came together and I figured out what I wanted to do.  Not sure why I was so uninspired this year, but ultimately the inspiration kicked in and I think I have a cool batch of fall soaps this year!  Here’s what I went with! Pictures will follow over the next couple weeks of each soap!

1. 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.

2. Almond Biscotti

A mixture of toasted almonds, sweet cake flour, and drizzled chocolate.

3. Pinot Grigio

The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud.

4. Nag Champa

Renowned for its earthy scent, it contains Juniper, Patchouli and Vanilla, Rose Geranium and Jasmine.

5. Pumpkin Spice

Dark, creamy, and rich pumpkin with notes of Cinnamon, Cardamom and Nutmeg.

6. Pumpkin Lager

A warm blend of Pumpkin Puree, Fresh Ginger, Crushed Nutmeg, Warm Cinnamon, Vanilla Sugar and Sparkling Rum.

7. Spiced Amber Ale

 The fragrance starts with a fresh citrus top note and has a warm, exotic finish.  The base is a wonderful synergy of pine, clove, honey and vanilla.

8. Patchouli Cinnamon

I can’t stand Patchouli, but so many have asked for it! I’ve gotten a large number of requests for different blends. Ultimately I decided to go with Cinnamon. The two scents work together!

9. Oakmoss

Wet and earthy oakmoss with green vetiver, vanilla and nutmeg.


It’s a Black Tie Affair!

May 24, 2015

Here’s Black Tie Affair–a soap for the men!  I love the colors of this soap.  It just makes me smile!

Black Tie Affair: Sophisticated notes of black peppercorn and leather are carefully crafted with warm woods, patchouli, musk and citrus.

Orange Blossom

April 26, 2015

There’s a lot of work that goes into my soap photos.  The set up process takes more than the actual taking and editing the photo sometimes!  This is just one example of what the end set up looked like and then how by manipulating the angle the camera was at changed the whole composition of the soap!

Orange Blossom


set up


orange blossom

Orange Blossom:  the blend starts fairly sharp and heavy on the bergamot, and calms to a lovely orange blossom heart with citrus notes and just the right amount of sweetness. It is a sparkling, cheerful, summery blend.

Huckleberry Harvest

April 22, 2015

I was in the mood for purple the day I decided to soap with huckleberry.  Part of why I decided to make this fragrance is because I thought it would work well with purple.  I am really pleased with the swirls in this soap.

Huckleberry Harvest


Huckleberry Harvest: a bouquet reminiscent of blueberry with raspberry, grape, strawberry and peach top notes with a sweet background.

Watercress & Aloe

April 18, 2015

The design of this soap came about because I was looking at my dry rack and going I don’t have a single blue soap.  I’ll make blue today!  It might not match its name, but I love the rock look of the embeds.

Watercress & Aloe


Watercress & Aloe: a blend beginning with subtle top notes of lemon rind and fresh palm leaves, followed by fresh watercress and aloe notes, and finishing with jasmine & eucalyptus.

Moroccan Mint & Midnight Pomegranate w/ Loofah

April 16, 2015

I did this soap years ago (with a slightly different fragrance blend).  It was a popular one and I’m not sure why I stopped making it, but it’s back again!

Top Layer:

Midnight Pomegranate: sparkling notes of Citrus, Dewberry and Cassis to dress up the deeper notes of Musk, Sandalwood and Vanilla. This fragrance is deep and sensual with a sweet tart twist.

Bottom Layer:

Moroccan Mint: This is a scrumptious blend of Spearmint, Peppermint and Corn Mint, with just a touch of black tea sprinkled in to provide a stable, full bottom note. It’s cool, crisp, and refreshing.

Shredded Loofah in the bottom portion for some scrub exfoliating!
