My soapy world was rather quiet this week. I only made two re-dos of old favorites. First up, Peppermint. The Mister asked for some peppermint soap-the kind that tingles. He loved the peppermint soap that Delighted Hands sent last summer. He loved the feeling of the mint essential oils on a hot day so I made him a batch in my bigger 2 pound mold. Seven bars ought to keep him in tingles for a while.
Next up was some Wasabi. Six weeks ago I made four bars and then gave them all away. In six weeks I'll have another supply of the spicy smelling stuff because I made that batch in the bigger mold also.
I did give lots of soap away this week. Everywhere I went I took a bag full and handed it out. I was kicking myself for not having any facial soap to hand out with it. As much as I love the cold process soap for a nice hot shower, I still prefer the glycerin soap at the sink for my face.
I spent a morning making more and now I have quite a stash of it but I'm pretty much out of the cold process soap for a few weeks. Then I'll have yet another tidal wave to find a home for. The next time the Jehovah Witness ladies come to the door they are taking some home and I'm not taking no for an answer.
I would also like to show off what some lovely blog friends sent my way this week. I do love the yummy herbal tea, amazing dried cherries and the basket.....
...oh, that basket. Handmade from pine needles. Exquisite, yes? Thanks so much Momolake and Sandflies, you are the bestest blog buddies!
