I don't really gift it once it gets hot because mailing it can be iffy.
I don't use the fancy colors or techniques. I just make big chunks of rustic soap using all the odd ingredients I seem to collect over the year. In the summer I like clay soaps. They aren't pretty but they do the job.
I've also got quite a collection of sea salts in lots of different colors for my beachy soaps. I don't even use my fancy glitter.
Who needs it when you have black, red and pink sea salt.
The jewelweed soap is cured and ready for use. My yard is full of poison ivy so I'm pretty sure I am going to be needing it. I also bought a big bottle of the Tecnu cleaner. You can't be too careful.
Being a plain jane soap I got to use my soap stamps on it. Meow.
I'm still making bath fizzies too. A bath just isn't a bath without them anymore. I've spoiled myself.
Speaking of bath fizzies, Daughter brought me a surprise home from Vegas.
It's a bath bomb that is supposed to be a sheep. It's actually in two parts. You get to use the head one night and the body the next. Cute but also a little scary, right? If you want to see this guy in action there is a whole blog post about him here complete with a video of him dissolving in the tub which is oddly fascinating.
I also need to thank Sandflies for the surprise that showed up last night. Yummo. You made my morning very happy. Thanks so much!!
