White Sage & Sea Salt

March 18, 2016

Swirls, embeds, and stamping…three techniques in one soap!  It makes for a lovely soap.

White Sage & Sea Salt: An inspiring blend of fresh sage and trendy sea salt backed by white washed driftwood will transport you to a place of natural harmony.

Top Notes: Lemon, Mandarin, Sage, Sea Salt
Middle Notes: Beach Juniper, Jasmine Vines, Island Gardenia
Base Notes: Weathered Driftwood, Cedar, Musk

I love stamping soap and I do it so rarely I couldn’t help but make another similar design (to Sweet Tea) so I could stamp again.

White Gardenia

February 18, 2016

Each year I try and do a couple floral scents (not my thing, but I know others love it).  One of the florals I went with this year is Wisteria and White Gardenia.

White Gardenia: begins with top notes of citrus, lily of the valley,  and aldehydes, followed by middle notes of white gardenia, jasmine, and muguet; sitting on a subtle note of amber woods.

Apparently I don’t really make blue soap. I was looking at my dry rack and all my standard soaps and I realized there was no blue in my soap collection. For whatever reason blue is just never a color that calls to me and so I never think about using it.  It really is a pretty color though and so I’m going to try and use it a little more!

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.

Wild Musk

February 2, 2016

It’s that time of year where I’m starting a new round of seasonal soaps.  I’m bringing back a couple I did last year (Honey Almond, Beer Soap, and Huckleberry Harvest) and then trying some new scents!  The first of these new scents is Wild Musk.

WILD MUSK  

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden smells similar to Coty’s Wild Musk.  Sensual skin musks  blended together with exotic jasmine, ylang ylang warmed by sandalwood and amber.

There’s something about the zebra swirl I love.  Every batch turns out different, but it still looks so cool every time!  I decided to add an exfoliant to this soap and used a grounded vanilla bean.  I love the black speckle look.

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!

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!
