Apricot & Peaches

June 11, 2016

The goal of this soap was to get embedded cubes (of different oranges) in a light orange base soap.  I made plenty of embeds, but when I cut the soap I missed most of them! (The pictured one has the best bare of the bunch for actually hitting the embeds!)  So as you use the soap you’ll see different colors emerging.  The smell is nice and light and sweet and fruity.  It’s a perfect summer blend. I put one aside for me already!

PS: A little side note – I meant to have an apricot in the picture too, but somehow (despite having a list) I walked out of the food store without an apricot!)

Vanilla Bean

June 7, 2016

I’ve been asked a lot for vanilla, so here we go: vanilla!  I really dislike the smell of straight vanilla.  It’s too sweet for me and this soap it definitely one I’ll never use.  However for everyone that’s asked for vanilla now’s your chance to get it!

Vanilla Bean: is a sweet, sugary aroma of fresh vanilla beans.

Wisteria Boulevard

March 24, 2016

Last year when I made my cider soap I did a five layer alternating diagonal design for a 10 lb batch of soap.  It took FOREVER.  I loved the look and wanted to make it again, but I knew I had to do it on a smaller batch of soap.  So, here it is again with just four layers.

WISTERIA BLVD: classic floral fragrance comprises ultra-feminine notes of Wisteria, Rose, Violet and Ylang with undertones of precious woods and tender musks for a captivating and enchanting scent.

Top Notes: Melon, Peach, Coconut, Apple
Middle Notes: Ylang Ylang, Rose, Jasmine, Violet, Wisteria
Base Notes: Vanilla, Musk

I think it turned out really pretty.

Raspberry Porter

February 11, 2016

I bought this fragrance on a whim. I like raspberry and I thought why not I’ll try a small batch.  In the bottle I loved the smell, and it holds true in the soap so I’m really happy!

Raspberry Porter: It’s a fresh combination of Sun ripened Raspberry, Squeezed Lemon and a winey fruit scent with hints of Green Leaf and Rose.

It’s a clean and simple design (did some soaps like this last year), but I love the look.  Added jojoba beads to it for look and exfoliating.

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!

Holiday Berry

November 18, 2015

And the last winter scent: Holiday Berry!  My favorite and the favorite of many of my customers. I changed up the design again this year.  I like this.  I kept the pink/green/white color scheme, but only did an in the pot swirl for two colors and end had that pink surround the ITP swirl.  I like it! Now listed!


Holiday Berry: Ripe raspberry intermingled with orange zest and warm musk.

Cedar & Balsam

November 15, 2015

This is by far my most popular “pine” scent soap that I make.  Same design as last year.  I really like the different green colored cubes embedded in another green base.

Cedar & Balsam: A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam.  This fragrance is composed of top notes of  orange, raspberry, and plum;  middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth;  base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.

I had some left over cubes and a tree cookie cutter so I decided to make a small batch of tree embeds. Didn’t quite work out how I imagined, so next year I’ll just stick to the same design I’ve done the past three years.
