Doggy Soap

Okay, as we all know doggy needs soap too. Probably more than the rest of us. And yes they deserve to be pampered with a luxury soap all their own. That's why I formulated a CP recipe using essential oils just for them. No cat's allowed! I make these pretty bones using eucalyptus, citronella, tea tree, lavender, rosemary, peppermint and penny royal essential oils. No colorants. One of my customers commented that she liked to use them for herself. Well, no comment to that!

Buzz Off

This is the time of year when mosquitoes are on the hunt for unprotected skin. I think they especially like me but I have found a few things to ward them off and even made soap with them. I'm not sure if the soap works but the oils that I used to make them with helps a lot. They are The Bug Be Gone from Lebermuth & Brambleberry and just plain old lemongrass & geranium essential oils. The soap actually smells very good and now I'm off to see if it works.

Peppermint Soap

Peppermint soap was the third batch of soap I made when I first started making soap. It has always been one of my favorites so I have searched for just the right essential oil. I wanted it to pop like when you put a stick of Wrigley's Doublemint gum in your mouth. That is just what I get when I mix Essential Wholesale and Lebermuth Peppermint Essential Oils together to make my fabulous Peppermint soap. So refreshing. So uplifting.

Just Ducky!

This little fellow is a baby soap I make using cp soap in a six cavity mold that I bought from Brambleberry. Can't remember where I bought the cute little ducky from. Possibly Brambleberry also. I used Chamomile Bergamot and Lavender for fragrance. I think the babies love it more than the parents and insist that they buy them more and more each time. It is a favorite with my gift shop customers.
