Frankincense and Myrrh – 31 OCT 2014

1 12 2014

I did not make the Siberian fir scent soap for Christmas this year. There’s still a good deal of other soap at the store and I’ve only made the much more popular frankincense and myrrh. There is about seven dozen bars though.2014-11-30 22.19.36

Another batch. Eucalyptus dragons disapprove of sniffles.

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.
