Evergreen Breeze

Well, here is one of the results of listening to good advice from Linda Stevens of Upland Soap Factory. She said to get rid of all those little bottles of oils that have been sitting on your shelf eating up your profit margin.

These great smelling babies were made from a combination of fragrances I had in my supply cabinet. I used Evergreen Breeze & Sweet Pea from Planet Earth. I also used a small amount of Cedarwood from Rainbow Meadow.

They get their color from parsley powder but how long the color lasts is still on the table.

Hot Processed Liquid Soap

I received my supplies from Dianna's Sundries and thought I'd make some more liquid soap. Here is a batch that is about to reach the "Vaseline" stage. It's coming along really great. I think I'll use it to make more some shower gel for Christmas gifts.

Gardener's Hand Soap

This is my version of gardeners hand soap. It has ground pumice to get grime off hands and is scented with white tea & ginger fragrance oil from Brambleberry. It is tinted with green chrome oxide and poured into individual 4 ounce molds. I can't wait for fall harvest.

Eucalyptus Soap

Some people like Eucalyptus all year long but I tend to make it in the fall because it gives me a comforting feeling. Probably because it reminds me somewhat of the camphor fragrance my mother used when I had a cold. The essential oils I used came from Rainbow Meadows and Majestic Mountain Sage. I have a habit of blending oils from different suppliers to get just the right aroma. I also used ground eucalyptus to help carry the fragrance.
