something new! Tidal Wave!

Introducing Tidal Wave! Let the waves roll in with this crisp, fresh aquatic fragrance. One of the cleanest, salty ocean type scents ever!

This one has something special in it as well. I used sand from Point Dume(Zuma) beach in Malibu, California for light exfoliation. This is the same beach Matthew McConaughey likes to surf on so there is always a chance his feet touched this sand.

Long ago I used a bar of soap that had sand in it and I loved it and this has been on my list to do for ages which is why I brought sand with me when I moved from CA to CO. That beach always had the best sand out of all the beaches.

Took me awhile to find the scent to go with the sand. I did a poll on Facebook to find out how much exfoliating people like and it seemed light was the winner so I took it easy on the amount of sand I used.

I do have to say this scent gave me some trouble when I was making it(think instant cottage cheese) so the plan I had with the colors went out the window, but I am still pretty pleased on how it ended up. Sure got lucky! This one will be available in a few weeks.

I will be at Florence, CO Pioneer Day this Saturday so come and say hi!

The soap looks like the sea. Wonderful blue colour!

That color is killer! I'm telling you we're psychic soap sisters...I'm developing my own little soap project dealing with sand, well, pumice which is like gray sand, lol:)

It's definitely a beautiful soap! Is there salt in there too, or is that my imagination?

no salt I think the white is part of the soap giving me troubles when I was making it.
