I worked in the soap shop today until a few minutes ago. Working with soap makes for some of my most fulfilling moments in life.
To the left is rose scented goat milk soap, and to the right is the plumeria that I always carry. Both contain a touch of complexion clay. The colors are very nice, they do fade somewhat while curing, which I like. The rose soap will be ready for sale in 4 weeks. Plumeria can be viewed in the soap store on my site.
I have received a lot of requests for floral fragranced soaps recently. I think it is the spring bug!
I had a lovely phone conversation with a potential customer today from New Hampshire. She had been reading the blog and stated that she saw that I studied soap making books (years back) that I had borrowed from the Indianapolis Public Library system. It is a small world, the friendly woman on the phone was also from Indianapolis! And, she asked for rose scented goat milk soap, the second request that I had received today. I told her, "Would you believe I have a fresh batch in the mold right in front of me?" I enjoyed our conversation tremendously!
There is a rose blend soap in the discount section on the website currently. The scent definitely has lingering rose base to it. That particular soap also contains the complexion clay.
Have a wonderful Friday!
