Another Castile Soap

Another Castile soap…scented in essential oils of lemon, sage, and ginger…Again what is Castile soap? It is soap made with a formula of 100% olive oil-meaning no other oils or butters were used in the making of this soap. This soap is still so friggin soft even after 3 days in the mold! I steeped some grated lemon peel in my lye solution to give it a sunny yellow color which of course you can’t see cause I didn’t angle the soaps right duh…I sprinkled the tops with some dried calendula.

I’ll have to let this soap cure for at least 3 months-just in time for the holidays. I’m hoping it will be rock hard by then…

It's Loofahpalooza 2k14!

New year. New look...I love putting "stuff" in soap lol and loofah is one of my faves. The grocery store near my job was selling footlong loofah's for around $4 and it was divine intervention because I swear I was looking for loofah on Etsy and other suppliers. Score!!!!

Anyway, this one's about as all-natural as it's gonna get-no coloring and scented with litsea cubeba (May Chang). It's very sweet with a heavenly citrus aroma almost like a flowery orange for lack of a better description. I love it! Yup, that's about all I can say...
