I've never made a coconut lime soap before but I'm so glad I did! This soap smells fragrant but not overpowering. This mix is warm and tart and smells amazing! This bar weighs a great five ounces. Take this bar into the shower and feel the warmth of the beach, and let your troubles just flow away. This bar is now listed for sale so grab one up

Wow this soap smells absolutely amazing! Rich banana, vanilla, apple, sandalwood and rum. Smells rich and decadent so banana lovers this soap is for you! For those of you not familiar with vanilla in any product, it discolors it quickly as you can see from the picture. Skin softening Jojoba oil and oatmeal was added to this bar and kinda makes it look like chocolate nut brownie!
This soap is by far my favorite soap to make looks just like a oatmeal cookie bar loaded with goodies but only for your skin. Made with ground up oatmeal, honey, shea butter and jojoba oil. Feels absolutely amazing on your skin, leaves no build up just washes clean. This soap is great for those alllergic to scent but not good for those allergic to honey or shea butter. Shea butter is terrific for all skin types but bad for those with nut allergies.
My favorite bath and body item to make is rebatched cold processed bars. I get to enjoy part of the process without messing with lye. In case you would like to try your hand at it or just to see what I'm talking about please check out http://www.brambleberry.com/. There you will find so many bases to choose from and experiment. Rebatch bars are nothing like melt and pour soaps because it doesn't melt the same. In the beginning of my blog I showed you how to melt these bases using your oven.
Finally I have a bunch curing on my racks but the first one up is my Purity Goat Milk Soap bars with Shea Butter and Jojoba oil. That's it no colorant or fragrance just the good stuff!
As you can see rebatched (also known as Handmilled) soaps are nothing like cp bars because they have a more rustic look than smooth. Although they are rustic looking I like them best and have been told that rebatched soaps last longer. Samples will also be available for each bar listed.

So in new york city it's just been raining like mad! I feel like I'm in seattle again. So finally got some things in order. My web store has specific items with specific fragrances. Its very easy to get caught up in so many scents that are out there but that can leave a deep whole in your pocket. So in other news, I finally ordered some goat's milk cp bars for rebatch! Someone asked me what I wanted for mother's day and big surprise I asked for a salad shooter! It will make my life sooo much easier as the machine shreds up the soap and all I do is cook it up. Sounds easy but a lot of work and I feel more comfortable not having to mess around with lye. I do not have patience for cp soap but love the results when I purchase a bar! I'm not sure which types I will make first but I purchased 30lbs and only two wood molds LOL. I imagine I will make the unscented varieties first and then off to the scented ones! Well that's all for now as soon as I start making soap I will post some pictures here. I'm also going to try to do another tutorial on rebatching but with crock pot.
