Soaps of Taste and Class...

Listing some new soaps for spring over the next two days that are classics, reinterpreted. Most of the new soaps are made in the hot process method, that is, over a kettle on a stove. This method produces a rustic looking, almost translucent soap that is mild and always seems to retain a slight softness to the bar.
The new soaps include Honey-Beeswax (swoon), Pure Castiles, Caramelized Honey and Smooth Colloidal Oat Castile, Rosewood, Vanille-Fig, just to name a few.
Here is a group shot of the lovelies...

I see some cold process bars in the photo too - particularly a larger bar of the much-beloved "Mermaid" - an outrageous combination of decadent cocoa butter and coconut cream with all of the colors and pearl of abalone shell. There is also an Ayurvedic Vata Soap (Perfect for Spring!!) of my design that has been my personal facial cleanser for many years. 
Cold process soaps typically are silkier in texture, many times swirled with fine arabesques of colors.
I find that my cold process soaps cure to a harder consistency than the hot process soaps. They are mild and last a very long time.
I am excited about these new soaps.
I am listing these on Etsy and hope to be finished by the end of business on March 18, 2010.
I will keep you posted.
Thank you for reading....
In Love, Truth and Beauty.......
