I have decided to make soap batches inspired by my talented friends. This batch is inspired by Jessica and her handmade business Lovinity.
While this bar may be a little boring compared to my colorful creations there is a good reason. Jessica starts with a bare piece of wood, a plain mug or cup and brings it to life with color and adds personality with names, quotes and images.
I will be putting some of her items into my "gifts" section but she also has an etsy store where you can browse or even order something custom made. You can find her here https://www.etsy.com/shop/Lovinity
As for the bar, it smells like fresh Cedar Wood, Earthy tones of patchouli and a hint
of rich leather create country accents. Sandalwood is sweetened
with exotic amber and soft mosses at the base of the scent, while
clean musk surrounds the woody creation. Coffee grounds are added for texture.
Made with Coconut Oil, RSPO Palm Oil, Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Rice Bran Oil, Unrefined Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Fragrance Oil, Skin Safe Colorant.
Barn Wood & Coffee Soap
All Soaps are hand made with love and excitement. (Yes, I am like a kid on Christmas day when I get to pop these soaps out of the mold!) Bars will vary in appearance because they are AWESOME and one of a kind! I highly recommend storing your soap bars away from standing water. Doing so will extend the life of your handmade soap as long as possible.
I use the same recipe for almost all of my handmade soap.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, RSPO Palm Oil, Olive Oil, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Rice Bran Oil, Unrefined Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Fragrance, Skin Safe Colorant.
Feed Your Face Soap
Ingredients: Liquid Aloe, RSPO Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Shea Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Colloidal Oats, French Green Clay, Zinc Oxide, Activated Charcoal, Sea Buckthorn Oil
Occasionally, some of my soaps will have small decorations on top made of melt and pour glycerine soap. This soap is a base that I add color or cosmetic glitter to and mold into decorative shapes. While it is soap, it is not made from my usual recipe.
If a bar has a decorative soap on top the ingredients of the decorative piece are listed below:
Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Stearic Acid, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Myristic Acid, Lauric Acid.
If a soap has glitter on it, the glitter is cosmetic grade and safe for skin.
