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...

A new one :-)

At last I've cut and made pictures of my avocado HP soap :-)
It will appear on Etsy very soon! I'm almost ready for the Holidays.

This soap is made with avocado puree, skin-loving oils and spearmint essential oil. 
I highlighted bar textured tops with golden mica -- looks terrific and really "Christmassy"

(Hot Process soap)
Ingredients: Saponified Corn oil, Palm oil, Palm Kernel Flakes, Olive oil, Grapeseed oil; avocado puree, Spearmint essential oil.

Guest Soap

Some time ago I made a batch of guest soap just for family usage (with sweet and spicy "Marrakesh" fragrance oil). I have lots of these fragrance testers from Bramble Berry so I wanted to try them out (not in soap for sale of course, only for my small hand/guest soaps). And it turned out very nice -- wasn't tricky to use in my cold process and has great smell in soap (strong enough as I added lot of this fragrance)  :-)

And just can't choose a picture :-) So uploaded all of them:

Oh, yes! A Winter Holiday Theme! :-)

New packaging

Now I have new wonderful Damask pattern bags for my soap and scrubs! Love them a lot :-)

Carrot & Citrus

Вот какое мыло замесилось :-)

Делаю его холодным, потому как боюсь потерять тот шикарный фруктово-цитрусовый аромат эфирных масел, которые я так щедро добавила. Мыло замешано на морковном соке (organic) и с маковыми семенами (масла: оливковое, виноградных косточек, кукурузное, пальмовое и пальмоядровое). Состав масел такой же, как у авокадного :-)


Love my polymer clay stamp and also thinking about a rubber one to use on paper and fabric bags :-)
So it's time to do some research on Etsy!

Shea butter and some soap

Today I received a new 5 lb. bunch of Shea butter :-) I'm so glad I can repeat my "Sweet Rose" recipe plus make something new with this wonderful butter. By the way it's white this time :-)

And here is "Sweet Rose" from previous "collection" :-)

This soap is made with Shea butter, Olive oil, Coconut oil, Grape seed oil, Rose Kaolin clay and essential oils.

Avocado Soap

Yesterday I made a new avocado soap :-) It's a hot process soap so will be ready before Christmas time and hopefully will appear in my shop by holidays!
It's in a mold right now :-)

It's a time to start preparing soap for Christmas! Hooray! :-) 
I made few new soaps one month ago (one of them was facial soap made with 100% Shea butter! Yummy). And going to make one with avocado puree right now :-) Looking forward to see a result.
