Have a Heart...

The ever elusive soap cupcake.

This sweetie is made with an organic soap base. The foamy top is a combination of the organic soap base and an all natural liquid soap. Scented with Pearberry. Divine. - H

My new felted soap habit

Hearts a la Valentine's Day, with a chai/honey fragrance oil blend.

I LOVE this bee. I used a stencil that I thought was super cute.
The bar is scented with Oatmeal Milk and Honey fragrance oil.

This bar is scented with a Citrus Essential Oil blend of Pink Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Litsea, Mandarin, and Sweet Orange. It smells like Botan Rice Candy!

I have been having way too much fun with these felted soaps. First of all, I'm all out of my made from scratch soaps so I used a glycerin soap base for these. It's not "all natural" but it gives me more flexibility to figure out what kind of shape and scent I use for the bar. I think I am going to continue to use the base for these. I think I'm going to switch to an all natural soap base in the future though.

Don't think I'm getting lazy on my other soap making though... I'm expecting a shipment of raw materials this week which includes a 35 pound bucket of coconut oil. Wheee! - H
