A Lot of Soap

18 Nov

It seems like I spent almost all of my weekend working on the soaps.  It’s a busy time of year with the holidays coming up, and I want to make sure I have a good supply on hand.

Coconut, Lucky Bamboo, Cornmeal Scrubbing with Lemongrass Oil, Baby Powder, and Cottage Rose

I made nine batches over the weekend.

Apple Mint, Lightly Lavender, Tea Tree, and Jasmine Dreams

Of course, I used a bar (or two) of each to beef up my supply of soap kabobs.  I think they are perfect gifts.  Sadly, I haven’t figured out how to mail them.

I also updated my on-line market page.  I added several new soaps:  Chai Tea, Candy, Woodland Elves, and Lucky Bamboo.

I made labels and put on quite a few bars.  I still have more to do.

I currently have forty-four varieties of soap that I’m making, even though I don’t quite have them all listed on my market yet.  I made Spellbound Woods, but it still need to cure just another week or so before I can add it to the market.  I have to say this is an amazing scent!

This weekend I tried two new soaps.  It’s sometimes a guess as to what they will look like when finished.

I like the way the Jasmine Dreams turned out.  It reminds me of  Starry Night by van Gogh

The Cottage Rose also turned out just the way I had hoped.

I still have two (or three) more batches to make, and then I’ll be fully stocked.  At least until the next order comes in!
