Meet Christmas Spice. It smells like pumpkin spice to me and you know how much I like that.
This is another attempt at making a butterfly. It's a pretty messy butterfly but this soap thickened up quicker than I expected. I was lucky, it could have been so much worse than this. So far no disasters like I had with the fall scents. Winter is playing nice.
These little mini bars are Christmas Forest which smells just like it sounds. I didn't think anyone would want to smell like a pine tree so I made little hand soaps for washing up at the kitchen sink after a day of cookie making.
This is Cranberry Fig. Slap dash is what I call it. I made 4 loaves that day and I was just pouring the batter in, giving it a stir and moving on to the next. It shows.
Ditto with Peppermint Stick. It was midnight by the time I got around to this one.
Sleigh Ride smells very brisk. It's a bit minty and and a little bit piney.
Santa's Spruce is one of my favorite new scents. It's a sugary, sweet pine. Odd but nice.
Hot Buttered Rum is very rummy. It makes me want some rum cake. I love rum cake. I need to make some rum cake.
Finally, meet Peppermint Bark.
It came about because I haven't been able to get my usual deodorized cocoa butter. I bought a pound of natural cocoa butter and discovered it smells just like chocolate. I never thought about chocolate soap being a good thing but if this scent doesn't cure out, it's going to be really, really yummy.
