Since Andee did that segment of kitchen spices in cold process soap, whenever I make something (anything for that matter), I wonder about using it in soap. Ack! She has corrupted me! Will I ever be able to cook in peace again? [Seriously, I keep wondering about sesame seeds, nori (sheets of seaweed), almond paste, [...]

We all have had a blemish at least once in our lives. (Some of us wish we had them less.) However, it is a fact of life that we all get them. I wanted to make a soap that was refreshing and useful in cleansing the skin. I used Tea Tree in this soap. Come [...]

The other day I made the Tropical Rose Soap which I had to force through saponification because my temperatures were too hot. I was so in love in the color, smell and feel of this soap I decided to make another soap without the cosmetic problems my first batch had. Come join me this delightful [...]

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been able to ask my grandpa for stories about the fishing trips he used to go on with his buddies. Most of these stories bring a smile to my grandpa’s face and he can’t stop chuckling as he tells the story. After hearing some of these [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

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



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, [...]

When I was in school, growing up here in Cache Valley, we would always cover some part of the valley’s history. Some of the stories I have not been able to forget. Ask any local here the story of Old Ephraim and you will be sat down to hear this incredible tale. Our valley was named [...]
