Two New Ones

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I wanted to show you my two new soaps. The first is called Summer Vacation and it is a lovely blend that I mixed myself. I am trying to use up some of my samples and small amounts and so blended 5 different fragrances for this one. I mixed a Beach by Bobbie Brown type fragrance, with Aqua Type fragrance, a bit of Ocean Breeze, with some sweetgrass and another green ivy type scent. It smells so good! The Beach by Bobbie Brown is dominant which is great but there are those subtle sweet, fresh, green, scents backing it up. Love it!





This one here is called Crisp & Clean and it is another fresh scent blend, but it is a clean cotton and fresh air type of scent. Once again, I love this mix! I like clean cotton/laundry scents but they usually give me a headache. Although this one is still strong, it doesn't give me a headache and that's a super duper bonus! :-) The top has tiny blue jojoba beads mixed in. I love the little pop of color that they give.





I do not have a making of video for the Summer Vacation soap. That fragrance totally riced on me! What is up with the ricing fragrances? The soap gremlins are on the loose! I can't even tell you how many people are struggling right now with their batches ricing...I have been getting comment after comment and each person has had several different batches go awry. Anyway...I did whip it back into submission but I'd already turned off the camera in frustration. So no video on that one but I do have a making of video for Crisp & Clean. The cutting video for both is going up now. I've found it easier not to embed my videos here as it makes it difficult for my page to load. I will make a point of putting some sort of link over on the right somewhere...once I figure out how to do that. :-) In the meantime, click HERE to go to my YouTube channel.

Lovely Holly and the dramatic pencil line is awesome! The reformulations are behind the ricing in my experience don't know about others.
