All Those Soaps - CUT!

I finally found some time yesterday to take some quick pictures. I've turned my focus for just a short bit to making wax products and have certainly enjoyed the designing and testing. But more on that another day!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cream Unscented Soap - made with a double dose of cocoa butter and cream, brown sugar, cocoa, and oatmeal.

Licorice Soap - a new one for my nearly natural line, made with anise essential oil and charcoal for a black swirl.

Apple Mango Tango Soap - (on left) - a delightful and fruity blend of apples, mango, and soft florals. Compare to Gain's Apple Mango Tango fabric softener scent.

Summer Love Soap - (on right) - gorgeous scent combining notes of raspberries, peaches, magnolias, and lilies.

Black Raspberry Vanilla Soap - a crazy popular scent of black raspberries, decadent cream, and soft vanilla.

Sunshine & Rainbows - a tart and juicy blend of peaches, pears, acai berries, grapefruit, lemons, and strawberries, with a touch of lily and rose.

(The coloring in this next picture does not do these two justice. I'm still trying to find the right camera, location, and timing. It's the one thing I can't quite figure out yet.)

Lilac Soap - I absolutely love lilacs and this adaption is the most authentic I have found. I love it!

Confetti Blossom - this floral scented soap is a combination of peonies, hydrangeas, hyacinths, tulips, violet, gardenia, jasmine, and a touch of lilac.It is amazingly soft and a customer favorite. I adore the look of the confetti in the white base.

Sierra Soap - this soap is a blend of several cologne scents with an extra splash of fir needle. I still can't believe I came up with a blend that smells just like Sierra by Stetson! The men love it, the women love their men to use this soap, and some women just want it all to themselves! :-)

Green Clover & Aloe Soap - a fresh spa-like scent combining notes of green clover and aloe. Nothing too complicated here, just super fresh and clean.

Patchouli Rain Soap - Fresh rain and earthy patchouli combine with notes of lily of the valley, fresh ozone, earthen moss, and sweet citrus to form a truly unique and unisex scent. Everyone loves this one! Don't let the patchouli scare you off! I made tall bars this time and love the results!

I somehow managed to forget to get a picture of the Banana Coconut Candy Soap. It is a solid yellow color topped with yellow glitter. :-)

I have been asked many times to show how I make my wax brittle so I uploaded a video yesterday. You can view it and many (ok, A LOT!) soapmaking videos on my YouTube channel.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

All of them are so pretty, but the swirling on the licorice soap is so feathery, so pretty! Love the Birthday Cake Brittle too, I bet it smells amazing!

As always, gorgeous soaps, Holly! I love the delicate swirls in the Chocolate Oatmeal and the Licorice soaps. And I also like the confetti look of the Confetti Blossom!

The licorice soap is my favourite because of its delicacy!
