Soaping Weather

A stretch of rainy weather that prevented any outdoor work getting done got turned into a soaping streak; some new essential oils & colorants collected recently added to the fun. This week's work includes:

  • Sweetgrass & Spruce--infused sweetgrass and spicy Black Spruce essential oil make this outdoorsy, manly soap fragrant and inviting. I used to use white spruce but the black spruce is even "moreso".
  • Sweet Orange--sweet, juicy, cheery orange oil and luscious orange peel wax
  • Pink Grapefruit--mmmmm sweet and sunny.
  • Lemongrass & Lavender--I'm loving lemongrass more and more. This time it is paired with French lavender and the result is crisp, clean, & fresh.
  • Avocado-Chamomile--unscented, soothing, gentle. One of our richest soaps.
  • Wild Wind (Black Vetiver)--deeply dark soap tinted with charcoal, scented with the deeply manly vetiver and a touch of sweet orange.
  • Chamomile Goatmilk--golden chamomile infused oil, chamomile tea, and creamy goatmilk.
  • Chamomile-Lavender Goatmilk--a new lavender from Eastern Europe begged to be added, and there's hardly a kindlier combo than Lavender and Chamomile.
Pictures as soon as I've taken them; and here's a sneak at what's coming next:
Cardamom--spicy, rounded, warm scent, a spin-off of our popular hand cream.
Striped Lavender--because there's more than one kind of Lavender
Lovely Lemon--our highly popular lemon wax soap, amped up with folded Lemon eo
Northern Lights---signature scented soap
Rose/Rose/Rose--triple threat rose soap, with eo, wax, and infused oils
Lavender, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus goat milk soaps
Evergreen & Cedar forest scents
