As I look at the calendar, it reads The End of July. What it actually means is, it's almost Christmas. As in, it's two days before Christmas, and you have started Christmas shopping yet. Welcome to soap. If you're not ahead, you're late. Taking anywhere from 6 weeks upwards of a year to cure, soap is most definitely a.work.of.patience. But patience is rewarded. Much like wine, soap gets better with age.
In preparation to ready ourselves for Fall, Winter and Christmas, we've been on a soap-making frenzy as of late. Soaps for Fall, soap for Christmas, soap restocks, and new soap fragrances. Soap here, soap there, soap everywhere. To phrase it, we're soap-ward bound. Here are some of the soaps we've been working on.
We recently did an in-store soap-making demonstration making our Black Raspberry Vanilla Goat Milk Soap. Had a good turnout and were able to show folks a bit of an inside look on how we make our soap.
Another restock was Avocado Sea Salt, a very clean spa fragrance that I find very calming and uplifting. Salty sea breezes mixed with white rose and touches of grapefruit here and there. If you're ever looking for a new clean bar to try, definitely check this one out.
We just had to another batch of Blackberry Cedar Sage. The smell and the colors on this one is off the chart.
Some of the new soaps were bringing back for the holidays are Christmas Splendor, Royal Vanilla Bean, Cider-Day Nights and a few other secrets we'll be testing soon. Here are some of the pictures taken right after pouring.
