In the mean time I signed up for supplying samples of my soaps.. oh my.. so for january I am creating two types of shampoo bar - one tee trea & fir needle and the other with geranium & plumeria. I'm loving it.. they came out so good :) might actually have enough left over to sell whole bars :)
My second sample set will consist of winter fresh ...absolute devine smell of the elements and I am thinking the other with either passionfruit & rose or more of a eucalyptus-minty scent.
In addition to this, I am planning out valentinesday gift ideas..that will have to go into production real soon. And when that is not enough..well I sit around and crochet haha..

In the mean time I signed up to create 200 samples for two different sample distributors/advertiser companies..who I just find awesome. The issue is now what kind of samples do I create? Well in one I am creating my shampoo bar because I heard that people are actually wanting this...its a blend of white tea, ginger and tea tree ...and then I am also creating a Winter Fresh scent..but that is a regular soap which are blended with sample scents from free gifts I received for supply purchases. It smells awesome with a hint of spearmint...
Something else I have been working on:

So I made this facial soap probably a week ago and despite the hot process it needed some time to cure. I am extremely happy with this soap as it heavily consists of shea butter with olive oil, coconut and palm oil and evaporated milk. Since the fluid solution (whatever it may be) and lye get pretty daggone hot and the oils are pretty warm when they are mixed together, the milk got a little cooked. I am okay with this because this allows me to not add any color because sometiems the less additives we add the better and while I like to use mica powders in some of my soaps I tend to plan them out carefully allowing me to change it in the last minute if I am so inclined.. this is creativity now isn't it? I have made this in 2 inch rounds but also in squares.
Now to the scent of this, well.. umm I don't know how to describe it.. I added milk, honey and oatmeal fragrance oil and something was missing, so I added a little yuzu and boy this is something else.. it is so good that I have a difficult time describing what it really smells like because it doesn't really smell like what I put in but it certainly to me is the best smelling soap I have ever made and thats tough because I pretty much love all my soaps.
