New soaps - and soap classes

Since our holiday sale in December our soap stock has been seriously depleted.  I haven't had time to make new batches of soap until this past week, and was so happy to get my hands back into it.  I love making soaps - it's relaxing, creative, scientific, beautiful, and unique and slightly unpredictable every time.   Best of all, in making your own soap you know exactly what will be going on your skin.  Soaps can be modified to suit all skin types, also providing healing properties as well as good cleansing.  You can use local ingredients, herbs grown in your own garden, etc.  So, finally the soap batches are curing on our shelves again - including some of our old favourites (lavender-goatmilk, patchouli-cedar-sage, rosemary-lemongrass), loads of new shampoo bars, some wedding soaps I'm making for an early summer wedding, as well as soaps for our shop.  The new favourite as pictured below - a refreshing peppermint soap that is marbled with natural indigo.  So pretty! 

For those who have been asking, yes!  I'll be offering 3 soap workshops coming up this winter-spring: one in Feb, March and April.  This is the traditional cold process soap method, using lye, pure vegetable oils, and pure essential oils and botanicals.  Details (dates and registration) will be posted later this week - here on our blog and the website.  Sign up quickly if you want to take part - these soap classes fill up fast!
