I have a bunch of these too. Last year I gave everyone in the choir a Frankincense and Myrrh, a Fir Tree, and an Unscented. I don’t think I’ll have enough unscented for that this year but I can give the other two. It’s been pretty busy at work and I’m being sent to Germany for part of this month so this may be it.

29 Nov 2013: These are ready now. I’m planning on bring some by the Old Store tomorrow. Not in time, I’m afraid, for Black Friday. I usually hunker down for it.

More Frankincense and Myrrh. I give these as gifts and I’ll need a bunch but there should be some left.

Goat Milk 12 OCT 2013

29 11 2013

One coworker has taken a specific liking to the goat milk. He says his tattoo has been gray for a long time due to dry skin but has been darkening since he’s been using the goat milk bars.
Last batch I made a few larger bars. He bought them all. This batch, there’s more.

Lilac and Lavender – 4 Oct 2013

6 11 2013

I’ve run out lavender soap and I don’t have any more of the fragrance either. This is a combination fragrance with both lilac and lavender. They go well together. It will need to stand in until my order comes in.

6 Nov 2013: These are ready now. They, and a bunch of others, are at The Old House if you’re in Starkville.





Unscented 25 Sep. 2013

6 11 2013

It wouldn’t do to run out of my signature unscented recipe.

6 Nov 2013: Nice and simple. And ready.





Banana Leaf and Acai 19 Sep 2013

6 11 2013

I’ve had a request to make some more of these. Remember, they continue to darken so by the time they are ready, they’ll have turned completely from yellow to brown.

6 Nov 2013: These are ready now. They’ve actually been ready for quite a while. It’s been busy and I haven’t been updating things fast enough.





Grape soap 11 Sep 2013

6 11 2013

It’s been a little while since I made a batch. It’s been rather busy. Last week I made a batch though and it is now out of the mold, cut, and stamped.
The is grape scented and smalls just like Concord grape juice. I didn’t want to use the premade color that I’ve been using with the lavender soap. It’s, well, lavender. I wanted a purple, so I mixed it myself. It didn’t darken as much as I expected but is otherwise as I intended.

6 March 2014: I would like to note that this scent reacts to light. Any that have seen any sunlight become more of a puce color unfortunately.
