In the summer there is nothing better than a rich lather soap with oils from the tropics. Enjoy the splendor from a rich lathering soap with the luxury of Shea Butter. Tropical beaches with warm sand and cold drinks are now no more than a shower away! Who knew such a rich, extravagant vacation [...]

Tropical Rose Soap

Yesterday I shared the Chocolate Mint Layered Soap. While it was fun to make the soap, I do have to say that chocolate and mint reminds me of the winter holiday season, not the summer! I decided to make another layered soap with chocolate layers, but this time I wanted to use a vanilla layer. [...]

Chocolate & Vanilla Layered Soap

Lately I have been craving any chocolate that I could get my paws on. (I mean hands!) Now, I truly mean any chocolate. Chocolate bars, chocolate chips, chocolate ice cream, brownies, chocolate shakes, you name it. If it contained chocolate, I wanted it 10 minutes ago. 😛 I’m beginning to feel like I should [...]

Chocolate Mint Layered Soap

A little while ago I had someone ask for some help formulating a stiff but non-greasy hand cream for her husband. Her husband had been using a “No Crack” Super Hand Cream that he loved, but he had just ran out. He begged her to see if she could make something for him. I helped [...]

Yesterday I made a Huckleberry soap. Today I will be using the same recipe but with an increased percentage of the Huckleberry Fragrance Oil. The soap smells so wonderful I want to go find a berry patch and spend the day grazing. 🙂 Just be careful using this soap in bear country. You might lose [...]

Huckleberry Soap – Day 2

The other day Tina asked me to make two soaps using our Huckleberry Fragrance Oil. She wanted me to record my temperatures, time it took to trace and which one I thought smelled better. I couldn’t wait to get started. I love Huckleberries. A local wood fired oven pizzeria has a dessert pizza has apples, [...]

Margarita Lip Balm

I have really enjoyed reading and researching these Heirloom Toiletry recipes. How amazing it is to make and use toiletries whose recipes are older than your grandmother! What a special way to connect to the generations that came before us. This recipe is from the book The Woman Beautiful by Helen Follett Stevans. Come join [...]
