That's 72 little bars of soap waiting for a good home. It's time to toss your blobs of gingerbread men and slivers of Sleigh Ride and open a new bar for February.
They've all been made with the same recipe except these two. Patchouli was made with red palm oil and is very lightly scented. Pomegranate Geranium has pomegranate butter in it and smells like roses to me. All the bars have a healthy dose of colloidal oatmeal which makes them nice and scrubby.
Awaken is a Lush knock off scent. I really like it. It's smells a bit like citrus and is very fresh. I'm a fan. White Thyme and Rosemary is lightly herbal. Note that these two are the only bars that have yogurt spelled correctly on the label. My spellcheck apparently has let me down and I was not about to go re-wrap all those bars to fix it.
Lavender Woods is a mysterious lavender. I liked it so much I am using it in the lotion bars. Mediterranian Fig is my all time favorite because it smells like my grandmother. She used White Shoulder perfume and this is faintly reminiscent of it. It's pretty strong. I can't get enough of this one and make it often.
Chocolate Mousse is pretty obvious. It smells like natural cocoa butter which smells like chocolate. I should have called it Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie because I went a little overboard with the oatmeal in this one. It's pretty scrubby but sometimes it's just what you need. Love Spell is a Victoria Secret knock off. It's described as a combination of cherry blossom and white jasmine. The Mister gave me a bottle of this body spray one year for Valentine's Day so it smells like a red doily heart to me.
Finally Huckleberry Honey which is made from the honey Betsy sent me. I used a berry fragrance oil and it is yummy. I could spread it on bread-but I won't. Remember, no matter how yummy these smell or how creamy they feel, they are soap. Make sure to rinse well and keep it out of your eyes. Stop using it if it gives you the itchies. If a particular one doesn't agree with me I find using it as a hand soap works. My hands can take anything, my lady bits-not so much.
This is another no strings pick two giveaway. I'll send you two bars of mini soap or a soap and a lotion bar of your choice or a soap and a Milk and Honey glycerin face bar.
The tinned lotion bars is the Lavender Woods bar with a splash of real lavender essential oil. It is strong. I like to slather myself in it at bedtime and I want to be able to smell it since lavender is so soothing. In the heart wrapper is the new little pink lotion bars. The fragrance is another Lush knock off called Love. It smells very spicy. Ylang, ylang and caramel is how it is described but I swear I can smell cinnamon. It's an unusual scent for sure.
You know the drill....send me your mailing details on Ravelry and check your messages often in case I have a question. I'll be packing and mailing your goodies this week along with a Valentine from my February card kit.
And look what just showed up this afternoon. Supplies and fragrance samples for SPRING soap!
Thanks so much for participating. Playing with soap (and cards) is my therapy!
