Shame, Shame, Shame! :-)

Shame on me for neglecting my blog so much! I really do love my blog but it seems I've only had time for tidbits here and there, which makes Facebook and Twitter so much easier to post on. But I will try to be better I promise!

My most recent soap is my new batch of Rainbow soap. It is scented in a fresh, juicy pear scent. This is about my 6th batch of rainbow soap now. It is really quite a lot of work and so it is best to do it in a really big batch. I was still just a bit off on my batch size this time (I knew what I needed to do for it to be just right but got distracted, ha!) and so the bars are super huge again!

I have made several more soaps since I last posted. I've made a Lemongrass Avocado soap, a new one to my Nearly Natural line of soaps. I also remade Patchouli Rain. It is such a well loved fragrance. I should rename it as Patchouli can be a turn-off to some and this scent is just way more than patchouli. I don't have pictures of either of those two yet but I do have videos of those two if you want to see what they look like. My YouTube Channel

Here are some of the others:

A new batch of Princess Kisses - disks on the top instead of chunks - scented in a blend of fresh dew, exotic herbs, green grass, sparkling rain drops, and floral gardens - it's a very lovely tart scent and comparable to Herbal Essences shampoo

Fallen Leaves - a classy and acceptable year round scent blend of maple wood, new dawn blossoms, laurel, sweet clove, balsam, patchouli, and sandalwood -

Summer Love - a beautiful scent blend of raspberries, peaches, magnolias, lilies, cyclamen, and white musk -

Chocolate Oatmeal Cream - an unscented bar for my Nearly Natural line, loaded with cocoa butter, cream, colloidal oatmeal, with a cocoa powder swirl - also a remake -

J'Adore - compare to J'Adore by Dior - I've decided to keep this batch just for my daughter and I since we are big fans of this scent -

Beach by Bobbie Brown Type - A blend of sand, sea spray, salt, jasmine, and mandarin -

Finally, I made a few batches of Camo soap -

So there you have it! Some of these are already for sale at my Big Cartel and Etsy stores. Thank you so much for stopping by! I do hope you are having a wonderful day!

I love all of these soaps, Holly! I especially like the rainbow soap. What a beauty! And the Chocolate Oatmeal Cream looks good enough to eat! It kinda reminds me of tiger butter. Great job on all of these, they're all just gorgeous!

Wow, you've been busy Holly, I love them all! Your rainbow soap is always such a happy soap, and your camo soap technique is awesome, very admirable. The chocolate oatmeal cream sounds so decadent!

Glad to see you are back and posting. I absolutely adore the rainbow soap, it's so super cute. =)

Louise said...

I don't see any indication anywhere where any of these soaps can be purchased. Are they no longer available? I went to your big cartel site and you only have 4 listed there for purchase.

Holly said...

Hi Louise,

Yes, these soaps are all sold out now except for Fallen Leaves. I have one of those left on my Etsy site. I'll be listing new soaps on my sites on Sunday afternoon.
