Soaping in full swing again

I can't believe I haven't blogged for such a long time!! I hate to admit, but sometimes there are things more important than soap. And now I can't believe I had the nerve to even say that!! The  past few months were really busy for me. It all started off with three sales in two different cities. They went well and I had one returning customer who was looking for a particular rose soap she bought from me last year. Unfortunately I had none of those left, but she agreed to try a different one. The feeling of having a returning client is unexplainable...I felt so thrilled and satisfied. Following the sales we had cousins coming from different parts of the world. It's so great to be able to meet up with family and we had a blast talking about our childhood and going to the movies and also many many family potluck dinners. And while I was having a great time with my folks, my soap stock slowly started dwindling to a point where I had no more soaps to sell. Wake up!!!!!

Thankfully I got bitten by the soap bug all over again. YAY!!!

Rose: Scented with Geranium FO and
colored with Calamine and cocoa powder

Very Vanilla: Colored with Cocoa powder and Kaolin clay and
scented with Vanilla FO

Scented with Rosemary EO. This contains a mix of ground lentils
also known as Sunni Pindi (in a south Indian language...Telugu)

Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Bergamot EO's

Thin line colored with wheatgrass powder

Scented with Basil, Citronella and Lemongrass EO's
and colored with cocoa powder

I'm finding it hard to try out any new swirl techniques because of so many almost seize and volcano situations. But I still get a high every time I soap and the excitement at the time of unmolding and cutting up the soap to see the design....I feel like a little kid with a wrapped up gift in hand, waiting to open it up. :)

Have a great day people and happy soaping!!
