Jasmine Rooibos

There was a time in my life when Jasmine was growing outside my bedroom window. At night it seemed to give off the most wonderful fragrance. I would drift off to sleep with that beautiful smell drifting through the window.

Lebermuth had the perfect Jasmine fragrance oil to evoke those memories. I added Rooibos, (African Red Bush Herb) for texture and to gentle exfoliate. I used the natural colorant of Indigo from Southern Soapers to add a tad of light blue.

Kokopelli Soap

One of the legends of Kokopelli says that he travels from village to village, blowing his flute and changing Winter into Spring. When I made this soap I think I heard the magic of his song.

In honor of the beginning of Spring and as a tribute to Kokopelli I made this cold processed soap using Thai Coconut fragrance oil from Southern Soapers. I can still hear the sound of his flute.

Rhassoul Clay Soap

This soap is made using Rhassoul clay and a fragrance from ChemEssence that reminds me of Ivory soap, with the faint hint of honeysuckle. Too bad it didn't come out white as snow.

Chocolate Mint Soap

These sweet little beauties were made using Peppermint essential oil from Essential Wholesale and Lebermuth. The Chocolate fragrance oil is from Sweetcakes. No colorant was used. Color comes from the reaction of the fragrance oil in the soaping pot. So yummy, smells like a York Peppermint Patty.

Lavender Oatmeal Soap

One of my friends commissioned me to make this Lavender Oatmeal soap for her. I had never mixed the two but it turned out great . Now I'm thinking of adding it to my regular collection. There are no colorants, just oatmeal, lavender flowers and lavender essential oils from Lebermuth and Essential Wholesale. It is simply fantabulous.

Two Mints & Hard Candy Soap

This soap reminds me so much of Christmas. I used a little Peppermint Essential Oil from Lebermuth, a dash of Spearmint Essential Oil from Essential Wholesale and a fragrance oil from BrambleBerry called Sleigh Ride which smells just like those minty hard candies I'd get in my Christmas stocking.
