Inspiration comes with a little green leaf and absolute freedom of a sea gull. It comes with beautiful impressionism paintings and fresh chilly mountain winds. It comes with a cup of coffee and a long walk along Montreal streets...

Solid perfume "Vintage Chic"

I'm happy to announce my solid perfume "Vintage Chic"!

This solid perfume has full body and deep flower & citrus flavor. It's very feminine and perfect for wearing in the evening with elegant cocktail dress and antique pearls. The most intense note of this perfume is sweet and bitter ylang ylang with slight patchouli touch and wonderful light adding of citrus bouquet.

I use only finest essential oils in a base of organic coconut oil and bee wax. Their combination gives very delicious and complicate flavor that will work with your body chemistry and create unique and one of a kind aroma. Also the composition notes are changing during perfume wearing -- it's the most interesting and intrigue feature of essential oils.

Apply solid perfume on your pulse points and enjoy natural, complex and deep bouquet. This perfume will stay close to your body and will be very intimate but its touch can be very noticeable. As I don't use any synthetic fixatives it will not last as long as factory perfumes are -- you will need to reapply it every few hours, but it's really enjoyable with such a beautiful locket.

The delightful brass locket is 2" x 1.5", made in USA and has a replaceable tin that contains about 2g. of solid perfume. This tin can be removed when empty and replaced with a new one that will available in my shop soon.

Bath Salt "Orange Sorbet"

Have a wonderful and relaxing time with the "Orange Sorbet" Bath Salt!

It has great citrus scent, contains only natural ingredients and will help your skin feel amazing after the bath.

I used Mediterranean and California Sea Salts for this mix, so it's not just average salt, but rich with mineral elements and add a high nutrient content to bath water! Also I add Almond oil to my blend so your skin be more soft and nourish. And I use just pure essential oils, not synthetic flavors and colors.

To use it just add 2-3 t.s. to your bath and enjoy!

Salt comes in a beautiful glass bottle that you can use for the room decor or fill it up with your favorite spices or whatever you'd like.

Hot Process stages :-)
I love to prepare hot process soap after the soap mass stabilized (between few hours and 1 day). It's much easier for me as I don't expect any surprises such as "cottage cheese" frustration :-)

Here you can see the second-day soap mass right after I put it in a double boiler.

Буйство фантазии и цвета

Итак, На прошлой неделе я сделала довольно большой брикет марсельского холодного для дальнейшей переплавки (решила на будущее не испытывать трудности с расслоением и прочими прелестями мгновенного горячего, а переплавлять заготовку -- результат выглядит и ощущается, как идеальное горячее мыло). Кое-какие эксперименты я уже с ним провела -- попробовала паприку в одном и толченные листья крапивы в другом. Оба эти мыльца двуслойные и невероятно симпатичные. На очереди новые эксперименты :-)

Грядет 8 марта!
