I like the beeswax soap. I made some more for me but I made plenty.

Tea Tree Liquid – 4 SEP 2014

7 10 2014

I’ve had some people tell me that the tea tree oil liquid soap has been helping with skin conditions and asked me to make some more. So, I did and here it is, ready to be pumped into bottles as needed.

Goat Milk 13 AUG 2014

7 10 2014

More goat milk soap. I went a bit wild on the molded soaps and didn’t leave quite enough left for the bars making them narrower than usual. It’s not much fun to pour out of the molds; makes a big mess and it doesn’t do to pout into the bar mold first. The soap gets thick quickly after trace and the shapes don’t show up well if I don’t pour them first. The bars are still a good bath size though. I usually make them quite large.

Green Clover and Aloe 29 July 2014

4 09 2014

I’ve heard a good deal of rave reviews for the little leaves so I’ve made some for this batch. I think they’re appropriate for the Green Clover and Aloe scent. Hopefully, they disappear quickly. Likewise with the dragons.

There are a few scents that make sense for the leaves. Of course, I could make laves with other scents. They are a great size for hand soaps. What do you think; would frankincense and myrrh or grapefruit leaves be good?

This is a link to a poll.

Lavender 11 July 2014

3 09 2014

More lavender. It seems in the fruitier scents do better in warm months and other scents do better at other times. I attempted to get both colors in the circles and molded soaps. Obviously I could not get as much swirl as in the square bars but I don’t think it turned out badly. There are only the three each of the flowers and dragons. Currently I plan to save one of each for my mother and bring the others to The Old House so if you want to stake a claim, do so in the comments quickly.

Cranberry Soap 24 June 2014

4 08 2014

This is a new scent. It does smell something like cranberries; perhaps more like cranberry dressing. I think it’s stabilized with mint. I get just a hint of it and the coloring is similar to the way the mint I’ve done in the past looks.

Some fragrance oils accelerate the trace and this is one of them. I barely got it in the molds. The bubbles are because it was so thick while I was pouring, scooping really. I’ve tested the Ph and it’s fine.

Twigs and Berries 24 June 2014

This scent was popular at The Old House the last time I made it. This time I made some of the little leaves as well. I’ll be bringing some over today or tomorrow.
