Make Natural Soap Last Longer

All Natural Soap can seem to give you trouble but really its simple. All you need to not have a mushy bar of soap that doesn’t last is a soap dish. But not any soap dish will work. You need to have a draining soap dish so that your soap can dry in between uses.

Soap gets mushy when it doesn’t dry and is left on a flat wet surface or a soap dish that has water in it.

Here are some photos and links for good soap dishes. You can also type in the name of the soap dish in google and find the price range that fits you.

I use a metal rack that hangs from my shower and I put my shampoo and my bar of soap on that.

Deep in the Woods

The temperature is beginning to drop, the leaves are changing colors and covering the ground like a plush blanket. The smell of the first rain will be here soon and so will the smell of damp soil and plants.

I have created a new scent to take you into the woods to calm your mind after a long day.

Wedding Shower Soap Favors!

I recently had a great friend who was getting married and I wanted to contribute in some way so I decided to make favors for her wedding shower. This was my first custom order from the scent and color of the soap to the way it was wrapped. The bride was amazing and let me get creative and add my own touch!

She decided on grapefruit soap with dark pink and white coloring and rose petals on top. The wrapping was pink with a custom label made by a fellow designer Breanne Bumanlag, owner of Japer and Peg, and was finished with a twine bow.

Here are some photos!

Organic Cedarwood Litsea Cold Process Soap

I think this may be my absolute favorite soap I have made so far! The layers of color remind me of a sunset in the forest and smells like a warm woodsy aroma with a hint of citrus.

In order to achieve the different colors I infused annatto seeds with olive oil for light yellow and deep yellow/orange. The bottom two layers is olive leaf powder, and natural brazilian clay for colorants.

Organic Sherbert Cold Process Soap

I began experimenting with different scents and colors in small batches and this is a new soap I made. I call it sherbert because it is sweet and citrusy with grapefruit, lemon, and sweet orange. I used three different natural brazilian clay colorants: pink, yellow, and red.

Ingredients: saponified organic olive oil and organic coconut oil, grapefruit/lemon/orange essential oil, pink/yellow/red brazilian clay, water.
