Too Blessed To Be Stressed...Soap

Up next in my new Naturals line is Too Blessed To Be Stressed. It's spicy and tangy all in one, and I can't stop sniffing it. Neither can Pepper although she. I colored this one with white clay because I wanted a really white soap without having to use titanium dioxide. I'm obsessed with lines now, so I used pink clay to line this one. I love how it's a lovely, dark shade of pink-almost burgundy. Enough about the aesthetics, here's the skinny on how it aromatizes. I used all essential oils, of course:
  • Lavender 40/42: Not really therapeutic but provides a delightful, floral aroma and takes some of the edge off the patchouli
  • Palmarosa: The "anti" EO-antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral...also a wonderful stress and fatigue reliever. I like inhaling this one right out of the bottle!
  • Patchouli: Most people think of hippies when they hear "patchouli", but it's also heavy in "anti" properties as well as relieving stress and exhaustion. Did you know that patchouli was traditionally used as an insect repellant when shipping fabric?
  • Sweet Orange: Uplifting and guess what? Stress relieving!
