Christmas is Coming...

The Christmas season is here, and man, does it show! Orders for Christmas gifts are flying in as quickly as I can fill them. Here are a few of the special items I have available this holiday season.

Frankincense & Myrrh soap. This warm, incense-like fragrance is unisex and the perfect Christmas gift. The white layer contains ground vanilla beans for a bit of texture and a touch of sweetness.

Winter Solstice soap - Inspired by gray wintry days and white snow swirling against the sky. A refreshing blend of cedarwood, clove, patchouli and pine.

Pumpkin Pie soap smells just like a pumpkin pie fresh from the oven. Contains organic pumpkin puree and holiday spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

A Winter Therapy gift basket will keep the blues away all winter long. Includes 1 Relax soap (a mellow minty scent), 1 Relax solid lotion stick (with mango butter, shea butter and olive oil to soothe dry, chapped skin), 1 Soothe solid lotion stick (with menthol, eucalyptus and rosemary to relieve aching muscles and open airways), 1 Peaceful Sleep pillow mist, 2 Sea Salt soy candles, 1 Herbal Balm (with herb infused olive oil to relieve seriously dry skin, chapped lips and noses, and cuts and scrapes), and 1 100% cotton washcloth.

See all of these and more in my Etsy shop.

Aussie Mint, Shea Baby, Coffee Shop Trio

Here are some of my newest soap creations. I'm making a couple of batches a day now to get ready for an upcoming craft show, so my kitchen is absolutely covered in soapmaking tools. Thank goodness for an understanding husband!

Aussie Mint: A swirled olive oil soap, scented with Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Spearmint and Orange, and colored with oxides.

Baby : A perfect choice for babies, made with 50% unrefined shea butter and scented with an all-natural Honey Almond blend. No added color.
Coffee Shop Trio: This combination was my aunt's idea (thanks Aunt Carrie!) and combines three coffee shop inspired soaps: Red Tea, made with African Rooibos tea leaves; Double Dark Chocolate, swirled with dark cocoa powder; and Espresso Express, made with double strength Italian espresso.
