Good morning and Happy Wednesday! How have you all been? I am running at full SPEED! Not only am I whipping up NEW products but I am also working in the kitchen....yes the KitChen.. cooking that is. I had this idea to create Freezer Meals and have started the process...lots of cooking is going on but I think it will be worth it in the end, especially during the first few weeks of school. It is always an adjustment.
Freezer Meals put on the back burner..check check! On to the NEW product! I had an idea to whip up soap using the loaf method. As I was going thru the cupboards in my Craft Studio, I stumbled upon a bag of dried herbs..hmm..I knew that I was onto something. The first loaf that I made was Fresh Mint Herbal Buttermilk..have you ever smelled Fresh Mint? I tell ya, it is delightful! I poured the soap in layers, the first layer has glycerin soap, dried Chamomile, Lavender, Spearmint, Rosemary and Juniper. As soon as it set, I poured the buttermilk soap along with a sprinkling of more of the dried herbs. I continued on until I reached the top of the loaf. As the soap was setting, (it takes a couple of days) I went to work on whipping up lotion, sugar scrub, European Spa Bath Salts and bubble bath. Viola! A new Gift Set!
The soap fresh out of the mold and hand cut, doesn't it look scrumptious?
I was on a Roll! I also whipped up a separate batch with my Rosemary Mint and Goats Milk Soap..ooh laaa laaaa!
I have another NEW Loaf that is setting up as we speak, can't wait to share it with you all! Catch ya all later!
