New Soaps to Come

Over the last two weeks, I have been busy making soap- 4 new ones and more liquid soap. My plan was to make all the soap I wanted to make before the baby arrives. It took some planning as I had to design all the recipes (scents are always hardest for me to pick, any suggestions?) and make sure I had enough time between cooking the soap, curing it and posting it on Etsy.  In the end it all worked out, I even had time to pre-write all the Etsy listings and take pictures. All I have to do now is click “Publish” and share on social media.

Making all the soaps was a lot of fun as I got to play with new and old techniques of soapmaking. I look forward to using those techniques again and let my imagination create new soaps to share with you.

Here are the soaps:

*UPDATE as of June 2016, the coffee soap, the lavender/patchouli, and the marble clay bar of soaps have been sold out*

Coffee Soap made with ground coffee, ginger, clove and cinnamon powder. The ground coffee adds exfoliating properties to the soap. Perfect for the coffee lover!
Lavender and Patchouli rebatched soap. I melted all the random pieces of soap I have gathered over the last few months with some rose water and purple clay. I then added some lavender flowers as well as lavender and patchouli essential oils.
The marbled clay bar of soap reminds me so much of a fire…the different colors remind me of flames twirling around in the wind. I used red Brazilian clay and turmeric for the coloring. I scented the soap with clove, geranium, juniper berry and patchouli essential oils.
The Valentine’s day bar of soap was so fun to make as I got to play with soap frosting for the first time (the possibilities are endless!). I used the cold process method to make this soap (it had been a while since I had made a cold process soap but it brought back a lot of memories because that;s how I got started with soapmaking 8 years ago). I used purple clay to color the soap and red clay for the inner heart. I scented the soap with lavender, clary sage and bergamot essen
