Ocean Breeze Goat Milk Soap Passed The Test

When I create a new soap I always save the small sliver from the end of the batch as a test soap. Yes, I am blessed. I get to try all kinds of soaps. For the tried and true soaps I leave the end pieces for customer samples.

I am happy to announce that the Ocean Breeze goat milk soap passed the test yesterday!

It smells wonderful, best described as fresh!

What inspired me was the dream of a clear ocean, beautiful blue green color, white sand, gently rolling waters, along with a cool breeze. I have not gone on a vacation in years, but I am one to get up before anyone else and take a beach stroll. Absolutely heaven. Back to the soap...does the soap smell like the ocean? No! It can also be described as a scent close to clean cotton. Fresh!

The soap lathers well and has some nice glycerin qualities.

Ocean Breeze will be moved to the website tomorrow.

I do not need to tell you this, but I appreciate and enjoy it, half of the first batch is on reserve for Alix at Casa Hice. She scooped the bars up as soon as she learned that they had been cut. She has an Annie's Goat Hill Goat Milk Soap addiction. There is no cure.

There will be more Ocean Breeze soap in the soap pot in the near future, it is a keeper!

Have a good evening!

What a pretty color! :-)

Enjoyed getting caught up on your blog. Love the babies!

Mary @ Annie's Goat Hill said...

Thank you, Bethany!!!

Amy said...

It's a lovely color Mary!

Yes I do have an Annie's Goat Hill addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. No twelve-step program for me... I can't get enough of your soap and intend to stay stocked!

You sent me a sample of Cherries And Berries, and it's one of my new favorites! The lather is insane and the fragrance is light and intoxicating. There I go with those addiction references again.

Thank you so much for remembering my pre-order. The soap is gorgeous and I love the fresh cotton scent. Before I found you, I was a Bath & Body Works customer. They have/had a scent called "Cotton Blossom" that I used to buy regularly, so I am looking forward to the Ocean Breeze soaps very much.

Thanks for the mention on your blog too, Mary. I always get so excited when Casa Hice shows up on other blogs. Yay!

Hi Mary,
The "cutting"parts at the end are most of the times the best!

I have a list, to be ordered later in June. I hope there will be some of this left. I have a few other soaps on my list too. Ocean Breeze is a beautiful soap and if it smells as you describe it, even better!

Ocean Breeze soap sounds heavenly!
If I wasn't trying to move I would order some right now, but I would probably loose it, so I better wait.

Ocean breeze is definitely on the soap list re-make as soon as possible. Right now there are bars remaining. Could be out this evening.
