Goodness! Is it Monday, and have I not yet done my daily post for November? Eek! Well, here's just one thing that kept me busy today: shipping soap for Christmas!
I made a batch of soap last week -- "Warm Cider" scented soap, "Christmas Tree" scented soap, plus lavender, sandalwood, and tea tree oil. I especially like how the Warm Cider turned out. That's a picture of it, above. The swirls are simply parts of the liquid soap that had more (or less) cocoa powder stirred in.
So I sat down with my cut soap and my scale, and started packaging.
My soap is about $1/ounce. It's a good deal for handmade scented soap. So many people tell me how gentle it is on their skin, and how skin irritations/itching/redness/dryness goes away when they stop using commercial soaps and begin using homemade soap.
Making soap is lots of fun. I love having a fine product to offer, I love having little gifts on hand when I need them, and I love never, ever having to buy a bar of soap -- ever! Yay!
People are shopping for Christmas. Have you started?
