More soap!

The weather was perfect spring sunshine!

Hoping to start selling my soap here at Athen’s Organic this week, too!!

Beard Balm

Are you wondering what this little gem is?

IMG_6029Well, wonder no longer!  This is an amazing little balm that is for men.  They scoop a little out with their finger, rub their hands together and then work this into their beard.  The results?  The smell first is amazing!  I mixed in the following oils, for the following reasons: {following Grace’s recipe here}

orange – antiseptic, treats acne

cedarwood – treats acne, anti-fungal, astringent

lavender – treats acne, prevents itching, helps dry and fragile hair

cinnamon – astringent, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal

frankincense – strengthens hair roots, astringent

This lovely product will help smooth out those whiskers as they grow and it will also offer some great nourishment to the skin and the hair!  This product is seriously a win-win!!

If you order some soap from me and mention *BeardBalm* I will throw in a sample for you to try!!

Soap Fun

Well, its official!  I’m selling soap!!

I finally launched my ETSY store!

And I have a new Facebook page!

And lots of soap to share with others~

I am so in love with this goat milk soap that if I use any other soap I notice within an hour of my shower!!  This soap leaves my skin happy and nourished!!

So check it out and let me know what you think!!

Valentines Soap {coming up}

I finally have my soap on ETSY – and hope to get out to a few stores shortly to get some soap selling in town!

Today I made some valentine Heart soaps – a Cinnamon Orange scent (that is wonderful!)

It smells like my favorite tea : Harney & Sons, Hot Cinnamon Spice.  Yum!!  Can’t wait to see how the swirls turned out with the red and creamy colors.  This is my first recipe with Lard and Castor oil too!  Castor Oil is supposed to make a very moisturizing soap and the Lard makes a harder soap that will last longer.

And of course, every bar has our own honey in it!!
