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.

Lianna’s Soap Booth Designs

I have played with many different booth styles at all of my events. Sometimes I make more elaborate booths and I also keep it simple for small fairs or markets. The best part is just making a comfortable and open space for people to shop. Here are some photos!

Ingredients: Organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, clary sage essential oil, sodium hydroxide, water, natural brazilian clay, ground pumice, indigo powder.

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.
