It's Almost Spring

Next week is the official first day of Spring.  This week in central Pennsylvania we had beautiful weather which is so rejuvenating after a long cold snowy winter.  This month's Etsyblogger's Blog Carnival is about Spring  and how we are celebrating the season with items in our shops. 

I am currently working of four new soaps.  The first one is by popular request.  I can't count how many times I have been asked if I have Lilac soap, so it is number one on the list.  Next is Pink Grapefruit and I am making this mostly because I like the scent but I think it should be popular too.  The third soap is Lemon Dill which might be a little offbeat but I am making it for The Herb Festival I will doing in April.  Every year there is an herb of the year and this year it is dill.  You don't see a lot of bath and body products with dill essential oil but I thought lemon and dill would be an interesting combo.  Lastly I want to make a lime salt bar because my By the Sea Salt Bar has been very popular. 

I also am planning on adding to my shop perfume oils.  I have been playing with scent combination's and I have come up with some pretty interesting things.  But I am not going to disclose any more on that for now. 
Enjoy the beauty of the season!

Soaps of the Month Giveaway

Time for a Giveaway!  Starting this month I decided to do a monthly giveaway.  Each month I will be giving away the 2 featured Soaps of the Month.  This month's featured soaps are I Love Coffee Soap and Dead Sea Mud Soap. 

 I Love Coffee Soap                                                                                                                                 Dead Sea Mud Soap                                                                                                                                    

These are both really great soaps.  I Love Coffee Soap is made with both brewed coffee and coffee grounds and is scented with orange and peppermint essential oils.  It makes a wonderful kitchen soap because coffee acts as a natural deodorizers, so it washes garlic and onion smells right off your hands.  Some people expect this soap to have an intense coffee scent but it doesn't because of the added essential oils.  It is also has added cocoa and shea butters for skin conditioning.  

Dead Sea Mud is rich in minerals and is especially beneficial for people with acne, eczema, and psoriasis.  This soap is scented with a blend of lavender, patchouli, and clary sage.
