Here’s my first soap made for 2016! Handmade soap cold process method. Cucumber mint with coconut milk. Looks nice and creamy. I am going back to work next Monday, so my soaping times will be only on the weekends.
Making gift sets are always fun to make. I have created a gift set for some of my co-workers, she wanted to gift her children’s teachers. I added a handmade soap, lip balm,bath bomb and a wash cloth. I created a bag topper in microsoft word, printed it out on a beige cardstock, folded into two and stapled onto a plastic cello packaging for the bath bombs. All the labels were created by me. I inserted all the products into a plastic bag and decorated it with a ribbon bow and some raffia.
We can’t forget to make some masculine scented soaps. Here’s the one I made using cedarwood essential oil, orange sweet essential oil, sandalwood fragrance oil and gingergrass essential oil. I just love gingergrass, it has a smell off lemon and pepper. I named this soap Handsome Devil. I used activated charcoal and ultra marine blue as colorant.
My version of “Savon de Marseilles” soap. Did some research on the ingredients of this traditional soap. They use 72% of Olive oil. So my recipe also contains 72% of olive oil , coconut oil and tallow. French green clay , benzoin gum powder and fragrance is Rice Flower. Simple soap but i am sure it will be awesome.
