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.

It’s summer and pear soap is great for after the pool if you don’t want to smell like chlorine for the rest of the day.Pear 2014-04-29

Beeswax soap 26 MAR 2014

29 04 2014

A coworker owns bees and asked if I had ever tried beeswax in soap. I had not but I’m willing to try new things.

Looking through blog posts and such suggested that just a small amount of wax goes a long way and to much will eliminate all your lather. I decided to try 2% and he gave me a small piece of beeswax.

2014-03-26 17.18.55The soap is ready now and I have tried a sliver off the end as usual to test after checking the Ph. It’s silky smooth. The beeswax still had a bit of floral scent. That’s almost imperceptible now. You wouldn’t notice it at all unless you smelled a regular unscented bar next to it.

Goat Milk 14 Jan 2014

22 02 2014

22 Feb 2014: So, I made these and then completely forgot to post them. A coworker asked me last night if I had any goat milk and I assured him that I did. When I got home this morning, I checked the batch and all was good so I can bring him some. I guess that’s about the state of my mind these days. Anyway, these are ready now.
