I'm sure everyone has heard The Legend of The Four Thieves but in case you haven't.
The legend is that during the Bubonic Plague in Europe the homes of stricken or dead people were robbed. It seems that the people who committed the theft didn't get sick. When they(four alchemist)were caught and asked to divulge their secret in exchange for leniency, they said they used a formula consisting of essential oils, herbs and spices.
My recipe consists of the following essential oils: lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, clove and rosemary. I also add eucalyptus leaves. Every winter I make soap and room spray using the recipe.

I guess you could say that I'm in a New State of mind. I purchased these molds from Chase Molds and couldn't resist using them for one of my cp soap recipes. I used rose fragrance because the Rose is the official flower of NY.

This is one of my very favorite soaps to make. It reminds me of a delicious pot of homemade oatmeal when making it and it feels so creamy when soaking in the tub. It has the extra benefit of bringing back a bit of nostalgia with the patchouli essential oil I use to give it the wonderful aroma. It is a favorite with my friends, family and customers.

This classic aromatherapy blend is made using my own blend of spearmint and rosemary essential oils. I'm trying to use more natural colorants so I've experimented with spinach power in this soap. It came out rather nice. Thanks to Essential Wholesale for the essential oils.
