Beer Soap

Took my turn at making some Beer soap. I have a large number of male buyers so I was looking for a few new scents to offer this year and decided on one scented like Beer.

I can't say making this one was fun, let's just say when beer mixes with lye it makes the most putrid smell you can imagine. Yet some how after it is all done it doesn't smell bad.

I had to give this one out to a tester since I am not familiar with the scent of beer. My tester reported back that he liked it so I am now adding some to my line to see how it sells.

Beer is a truly unique fragrance, it is a combined aroma of malt liquor straight from the tap, with a fruity twist. Combined notes of malt liquor and hops with fruity notes of strawberry, pineapple, apple, and raspberry.

Spring is in the air!

The weather if finally warming up some and I can already tell my mood is improving. I can't say I enjoy winter, I do miss the weather from my time living in CA.

So this is my first spring in my first home and I am starting to see all kinds of flowers popping up in the yard. (see picture) Did some more raking today and found even more. Can't wait for everything to bloom.

I think I am all nuts about flowers and gardens right now. I have all kinds of seeds ready to be planted once we get past the snow days. Going to plant some lavender, strawberries, CA poppy, Russian sage and a top secret pumpkin seed. I already have my next Halloween pumpkin planned out and I have to grow a special pumpkin for it.

I have even been using the Floral Bouquet soap because I think I am really craving the smell of spring/flowers.

Who else is ready for Spring Flowers?

Cream Soda soap

Next in my Cola/Soda line is Cream Soda.

An old fashioned soda shop classic having all the bubbly notes frothing over the glass with the truly characteristic, caramelized sugar and vanilla cream aroma.

Sent off 3 craft show applications today, getting closer to those starting again.

I have a new apron to wear at the shows and my new business cards are on the way.

Sea Shell Garden

So I have a house to decorate now but since I don't have extra money to really do cool stuff yet I got creative. My grandma had given me a number of boxes with sea shells in them so I turned them into a sea shell garden.

Don't mind the brick that is on the list to work on this summer.

Blue Hawaiian soap

New soap!! Posted this on facebook earlier :)

Blue Hawaiian begins with mouth-watering top notes of juicy orange, lemon, and maraschino cherries; followed by tangy pineapple, acai berry, and sea spray; well rounded with base notes of sweet coconut, vanilla rum, and fresh ozonic notes.

Tooth Fairy Taffy

Tooth Fairy Taffy is a luscious blend of confectionery sugar paired with fruit syrup of wild berry, orange crush, black cherry and tangerine molded into vanilla taffy to create a sweet tooth, bubblegum dream! Top notes: confectionery sugar, wild berry, orange crush. Middle notes: black cherry, tangerine splash. Base notes: sweet bubblegum, vanilla taffy, musk.

This is another of the soaps I made a solid color since I didn't have any other straight pink soaps.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently I have been making lots of new soaps but some I am still seeing if they shift colors or not before I photograph them. I am also trying to get back into working out since my foot injury from last year is finally healed I think. But that extra time for working out has cut into soap making and blog posting.

How does one find balance to fit everything in a day?!?!?
