Hey everybody! Sorry I've been a little MIA--Americorps is keeping me pretty busy. But I'm home on winter break and thought I'd share, belatedly, some winter-themed soaps I made back in October.
This is the winter version of my "Midsummer Night's Dream" soap, inspired by Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening." I love the scent of this one--fir needle, peppermint, bergamot, patchouli and tea tree EOs give it a spicy, woodsy fragrance. Bars like this make me want to convert solely to EOs and never look back! (Too bad bergamot is so freaking expensive....)
This one's all-natural, scented with orange, litsea, cinnamon and clove EOs and colored with red palm oil. It's delectable, sweet and Christmassy--very much an "I want to eat this" bar. Num!
This is my first dedicated shaving bar, and I'm mainly proud of the sheer amount of stuff
in it: Magic Hat ale, pumpkin puree, shea butter, castor oil and kaolin clay. Due to No Shave November I haven't given it a try, but, you know...
This one's scented with warm butterscotch and vanilla FOs.
And the gingerbread bar. This baby's made with apple cider and scented with ginger, orange, cinnamon and clove EOs.
Thanks for looking! C&C welcome.
