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.

Teddy Bear Soap

I love doing holiday themed workshops with children. Here are some little brown bears we made using melt & pour soap. I had them color the nose and decorate . I gave them stockings and asked if they'd like to write Santa a letter. One little girl asked me if she had been bad would Santa still stop at her house. I told her that if she wrote a letter explaining her side of the story it would probably work.

Remember the good old Santa days?
