Did I ever mention....

that Im a soapmaker?
My memory isn't what it used to be.
But, I do remember that Im quite proficient.  I think.
Here are some random soaps Ive made.  Although, I don't make much soap anymore, I still enjoy it from time to time.

First is Flowerchild, topped with dried floral buds.  I had one woman tell me it reminded her of a particular flower that grows in Scotland.  She stood there and huffed it for several minutes before purchasing a few bars.

The second one is Black Raspberry Vanilla, girlies love this one.

Third, Mantra, it won an award!
See?  I told you I was proficient...well, at least once I was.

This one is Cuban Coffee Bean, it smelled like Starbucks...sold VERY well lol.

The one below is French Lavender, I need to make some today.  Ive got a market at the end of the month and my customers will expect that one.  I may get lynched if I don't have some.

The white and pink one next is Peppermint Stick.  Oh, how I love peppermint.

For the two above, the green/blue one is Cedarwood Patchouli, yum....and the last one Mint Cocoa Bean.
The swirl is made with pure cocoa powder.

I called this one Bad Moon Rising, thought it looked kinda cool, in a groovy, heavy kind of way.  It smelled herbally earthy, a great dude scent!

One more...Cedarwood Mint, I love this essential oil combo.  Earthy and refreshing all at the same time!

So, there you have it, some of my favorites from the past few years.
This is the one I made last night, just cut it this morning.  Its Goats Milk Oatmeal and Honey.  Probably my best seller next to Lavender.

In the mold, it will make 11 bars and a sliver left for meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Here it is being cut...I know, you are all so very impressed with my state of the art soap cutter...ahem.

And all in a row like soldiers, ready to cure up for a few weeks and be packaged.  My troops will then be sent to various bathrooms in homes across my state for the sole purpose of ridding the masses of dirt and smelly smells.

Have I bored you to tears yet?
My next post will be food...back to your regularly scheduled programming, I promise!

Ahh..soaping! How I miss it so!Sadly, I have not soaped in over a year..life has gotten really really busy lately.
I remember drooling over your mantra soap on the dish a few years ago. I've always loved good soap porn and this post is no exception!

I use to make cold processed soap about 6 years ago. Mine never looked as beautiful as yours! I still have some ugly bars I use when the urge hits me.

Oh soap porn is never boring, and your soaps are divine! I just love the Mantra and all the blends sound so yummy.
