I’m officially starting to get tired of the snow and cold. February is banal, tiresome, and just all-around boring. I need spring, or at least a break in the weather.
Due to the weather, I’ve found that I’ve been making summer inspired soaps lately, without realizing what I was doing. My top three current favorites just happen to be the next three that are going to be released!
The first is a banana soap. This soap has creamy oils to help with the winter-itchies. dried banana powder adds some depth to the scent and i like to believe that the potassium will help with my mood. It’s a wonderful blend of sweet, ripened bananas, caramel sauce, butter, brown sugar, banana liquor, vanilla ice cream, and just a touch of dark rum and cinnamon. A sweet good-bye to late winter and an eager hello to early spring, imo.
The second is a soap that I made from the concord grapes that I harvested last fall. I went overboard picking the grapes, I admit it. I made more grape jelly than I could even give away and I STILL had grapes left over. What to do with all those grapes then? why, I’ll Make soap! It’s truly lovely. I added an activated charcoal swirl and the sugar from the grapes make this a very nice bar of soap. The scent is intensely GRAPE but not in a “grape soda’ type of way, it’s just the strong fresh plump concord grape that comes through. I added a bit of salt to the top of the bar, because that’ s how I prefer to eat grapes, with a light sprinkling of salt.
The last and maybe my favorite is Watermelon Shine. I MUST be craving summer-time! This soap is just good clean fun! I know, I know, we’re Mighty White Soaps, why would we add so MUCH glitter to our watermelon soap? Because it’s pretty and I miss fresh-from-our-garden watermelon. Frankly, this fragrance deserves a little sparkle, with top notes of watermelon, lime, lemon, and bergamot; followed by middle notes of marigold, sweet, juicy melon; with base notes of white musk and vanilla. It’s a show-stopper! Pics soon.
