POMONA Handmade Soap

 This is a super delicious fragrance blend that I use to call Honey Pear.  It's a realistic yummy pear scent with crisp effervescent "fizzy" notes on a base of sweet honey nectar and vanilla.  The old name doesn't really seem to fit because of the extra notes, so I've renamed it POMONA.
I mentioned in my last post that soap names don't come easily to me.  Coming up with one a really a long process that involves a lot of time on Word Hippo's thesaurus, Wikipedia and, when all else fails, an exhaustive search through Greek and Roman mythology.
 All else failed, so I did a search for pears in mythology and came up with Pomona the goddess of fruitful abundance.
I've been playing around with my swirl patterns a lot more lately too.  Always gotta find a way to keep em uniquely me and a little different from the rest, lol.  Also, I've found that grounding my neons with a bit of iron oxide is really helping the colors to stick much better. I'll share more of those results in my next post.  Until next time...
