On the Curing Rack...Honeybell Handmade Soap

Honeybell is a  blend that was inspired by a tea that I drink.  Honey Chamomile Vanilla.  I didn't add any vanilla to this but like I said, it was just an inspiration.  The base is blend of Lemongrass, Honey and Orange.  I also added Orange Peel Powder.

(Coconut Milk, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Soybean Oil, Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Fragrance/Essential Oil Blend,  Natural Pigments, French Green Clay, Orange Peel Powder, Chamomile Powder, Safflower Petals, Cocoa Powder)

The top portion is scented with Chamomile and Honey with added French Green Clay, Chamomile Powder, and topped with Safflower petals.
It's a fresh herbal type blend sweetened with the Lemongrass and Honey.  I'm in love with this blend.

On the Curing Rack...SUNDANCE Cold Process Soap

Lately, I've really been trying to get back into blending my own fragrances.  Sundance is a citrus blend of Blood Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Yuzu, Lemon Drops and Clove.

(Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Soybean Oil, Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Fragrance/Essential Oil Blend, Pink Clay, Orange Peel Powder, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt)

The base is colored with Pink Clay which is great for different skin types, with a softening affect that refines the skin texture and provides hydration through moisturizing properties. This delicate clay has firming and toning elements that improve connective tissue and therefore is perfect for mature skin.

 The lighter portion is contains Orange Peel Powder which is known for toning and rejuvenating the skin.  The top is dusted with Pink Sea Salt.

On the Curing Rack...Snow White Cold Process Soap

I just did a remake of Snow White, sans the M&P embeds. (embeds aren't my favorite :0))

Last summer I did a contest on YouTube and on Facebook inviting my subscribers to help me create soaps.  They were able to choose scents, colors, designs, etc.  I chose to combine the following  request to create two new soaps: 1. do a theme soap, 2. do a black red and white soap and  3. add some embeds

The result was Snow White & the Huntsman

 Fluffy Almond Marzipan Frosting "poisoned" with hints of delicious Red Apples

A dark and haunting blend of spicy Apples with rustic woodsy notes of Sandalwood, Oak and Cedarwood

So, here are the new bars of Snow White.
I've mentioned this before in several of my older post, but Bramble Berry really is my "go to" for many of my staple fo's.   I purchased an apple blend from another supplier to add to the original batch and I just wasn't happy with it at all.  So I went back to my Bramble Berry apple and the difference is noticeable straight away.
In this particular blend, the apple is not the top note, but it's in the red "apple" portion of the swirls.
