Stormy Monday

Just a short post this evening to check in and thank each and every one of you for reading my blog. 
I have been unable to write as often as I would like because the soap shop has been busy.
In between filling various orders and special requests, I have been re-stocking the shop with old favorite standards and some seasonal offerings. 
I am excited about the new soaps! Most will be available by the middle to the end of May, 2011. 
I will surprise you with photos of the new soaps as soon as I complete the soap making.
In the meantime, I will leave you with three citrus-based, scented soaps that seem just right for now. All three are enriched with raw, unrefined and organic butters. Yum!
Lemon Sugar
Pink Grapefruit & Apricot
Orange Vanilla Cream

Like so may other areas in the United States, we have been plagued with extremely treacherous weather lately. I may have mentioned before that I do not like to make soap during rain or high humidity. Well, I had no choice today! Amidst tornado warnings, rain, lightning, thunder and hail, three new logs somehow managed to get poured. Typically, I can cut my logs within 24 hours (or sooner). Lately, I have had to wait 48+ hours to cut the soap logs with no recipe changes. So much moisture in the air!
Keep your fingers crossed and pray to the soap Angels that the batches I made today gel and cure properly. 
Thank you!
Be safe in this stormy weather.
In Love, Truth and Beauty..........

Green Soap

First up - Peppermint Cream, actually a bluish-green, but made with peppermint essential oil and ground mint. I love mint, so I am partial to this beauty. Chock full of pampering ingredients so as not to dry or irritate skin.

Peppermint Cream
Next, Green Tea Supreme, a very hard, yet moisturizing bar that has the fresh, dry, soft, yet crisp scent of green tea, topped off with crunchy raw, organic sugar. Only one bar left of this soap!

Green Tea Supreme
 Herb Garden is my current obsession! I love the fresh bay, basil and lemon balm oils. The base recipe is very hard and rich (and giant bars!), creamy and moisturizing, so I tossed in some ground nettles to balance the recipe. I seriously love this soap!

Herb Garden
Forest Shea is all good things in one bar! It has all the evergreen scents - pine, cedar, balsam fir, softened with ground vanilla beans, nutmeg and other spicy essential oils. It is on the sweet side, but perfect for a person who feels 'grounded' when surrounded by nature. It is not the candy-like green that shows in the photo. It is a softer green, topped with a white frosting and sprinkled with iridescent fairy dust. This soap just gets better with time. Hurry! Only two bars left and it is on SALE!!

Forest Shea
 One last bar of Thieves in the Garden, also specially priced. Only one bar left! This is eucalyptus rich with sweet orange, cinnamon and clove essential oils to ease colds, sinus issues and allergies. This soap is fabulous in a hot steamy shower! 

I hope that you have liked my little green soap treasury! Each one of these soaps would be suitable for a man or a woman.

May you have a great rest of the weekend!

Angelic Hugs!
