SOAP

Above: Coffee Soap



I'm working on all these batches of soap again this year. This years batch has been easier and more fun. Probably because I have more experience.

I received requests for the coffee soap. My favorite is the rosemary. The aroma is so fresh, clean and calming! Lavender and Lemon/orange oil are also wonderful and clean smelling. The mouthful, but don't eat it, is cucumber melon green tea lime oil poppy seed bar! Peppermint is a good one for the Christmas season. I saved the peppermint stars for a baby shower.

Wrapping the soap can be tricky. The wrapping paper I used on the lavender soap became sweaty and gross. I used some heavy mulberry paper as well as some thick handmade paper which worked much better. The green soap, rosemary, to the left, is wrapped in wax paper to show off the color and texture. All the peppermint soap has a bit of glitter added to it.
