Solar Spice aka: Spiced Amber Ale

September 16, 2015

I just had “fun” with embeds here. Fun = ready to pull my hair out I hated making these embeds. ;) Oh my word. I had to great idea in my head…and then I started soaping with the fragrance and it got thick quick. And out the window went my idea of these beautiful embeds. (I won’t mention that one of my molds split open when I was making these either!)

Overall, these do look cool, but nothing like what I was imagining.

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.

Pumpkin Lager

September 13, 2015

There are 16 bars of this soap and once they’re gone, they are gone. Bramble Berry discounted this scent. I actually like it (which surprised me…I didn’t think I would!). The design isn’t anything special but this soap discolors! I added a lot of white (more than I probably should have) just to get the middle to end up a tan color!

Pumpkin Lager

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

Pinot Grigio

September 10, 2015

Did you know that back in 2011 I was on the Bramble Berry Tester panel for this fragrance! It was the #1 choice of all the testers (including me).  It doesn’t remind me of wine, but there’s just something about this scent that draws me to it!

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.


Now available!

Pumpkin Spice

September 2, 2015

I was really disappointed with my pumpkin soap last year.  I made pumpkin cheesecake which had a large amount of vanilla and the entire design was lost cause the whole thing turned dark brown. This year I went back to my Pumpkin Spice fragrance and I planned accordingly for color change.

I make the pumpkins with no fragrance and then less fragrance in the green than brown so it wouldn’t morph as badly.  The theme of this soap was pumpkin patch. I really love how it turned out with the pumpkins embedded on top and vines and leaves piped across the top.

Pumpkin Spice

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

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!

Almond Biscotti

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