All the Pretty Colors!

You may know that I like making soap, some fancy, some cakes, but also some good old "Everyday Soap Rounds" Today I'll share images of the 9 flavors I have left. (Yes, there were 10, Dragon's Blood sold out at the Maryland Faerie Festival.)

Everyday Rounds are filled with goodies even though I call this my ordinary soap line, there is silk, clay, oatmeal, honey, yogurt, coconut milk & coconut water. All these items add luxury to your personal washing time. I love the creamy lather and the slick feeling of the clay and silk. Best of all, your hands aren't overly dry or squeaky after a good wash. Here we go...

1. Cosmic, Blue, purple, natural and green tie dye with a little bit of gold dust. This one has a cute see-through star. Fragrance: Grapefruit Lily

2. Aqua Love, Beautiful aqua water color. Fragrance: Fresh Bamboo with a touch of Cucumber Melon.

3. Cherry Pop, Red and Natural swirl. Fragrance: Maraschino & Black Cherry with Ginger Ale.

4. Sunshine, Yellow, Natural and Golden Yellow. Fragrance: Verbena & Bergamot with Fresh Bamboo. My mom is happily using this one. Second place favorite of my Everyday Soaps- only 2 left.

5. Good Morning, Blue, Aqua and Natural. Fragrance: White Ginger & Amber and a touch of Fresh Snow and Bamboo.

6. Valentine, Pretty pink with a purple see-through heart. The see-through's are made with clear melt & pour soap. The shapes can be a bit distorted on some of the Everyday Soaps, but it's still cute. Fragrance: Lily of the Valley

7. Lilac, Purple with a see-through shooting star. Fragrance: Lilac by Bramble Berry.

8. Lavender Chamomile, Orchid and Natural. Fragrance: Lavender Chamomile from Nurture Soap. This one is my husbands favorite. Move quick on this one...only 4 left.
Did you know that Frank Sinatra wore Agua Lavanda exclusively? 

9. Juicy, Orange, Natural and Hot Pink with an orange see-through heart. Fragrance: Fruit Fusion by Bramble Berry. Not many of this one left. It's a walk up and smell favorite at our booth.

And that Dragon's Blood got away before I could photograph them. I hope something here tickles your fancy. These soaps sell online at my Big Cartel Store for $5.00 each. If you happen to live in my town....we deliver. Happy Happy Joy Joy!

These soaps are moving fast...can't say I have more than 6 of any now. (wow)

Our next market is August 4th in lovely downtown Havre de Grace for their "1st Fridays" summer Event. Following on August 19th & 20th is THE BIG ONE ELIZABETH! The Havre de Grace Art Show. I'm not just selling my wares there......I entered Bay Breeze Soap and was selected to exhibit. Please wish me luck!

Blogger comments have stopped working and I am tired of trying to fix it. 
Most likely you came to visit from FACEBOOK, and that's really the 
best place for comments anyway. Cheers

Summer is for Watermelon!

 I've been wanting to make watermelon soap since last year! I thought I'd try it in Hot Process and keep it within my "Everyday Soaps" line. More of those in another post. I love the rustic and yet still fun look.

Wonderful stuff is in this soap! I've used mango butter, coconut water, kaolin clay, tussah silk, oatmeal powder, yogurt and honey!

These will cure and be ready by August 4th when we set up and at Havre de Grace's First Fridays. My "Everyday Soaps" are fun rustic's in a convenient size and still just $5.00. Anyone may reserve a Watermelon Soap. Just message me at my Bay Breeze Soap Facebook page.

Seems my comment box 
doesn't work any longer in Blogger. 
That's OK, the best communication 
is commenting at Facebook anyway.

And now....The Loofah. A short history.

The history of the loofah

See the entire story loofah. 

Most people use it for showering. It’s generally used for exfoliating dead skin and can also be used as a sponge, said Tom Colgan, owner of Loofah by the Inch. But where did it originate?

Something New: My Soap as Cupcakes

Soap can be beautiful and wonderful to use. 

You may have seen soap as bakery items, it's too fun not to make these. My first adventure into cupcake soap started with "How did they ice that thing?" After some research I found out I could pipe fluid soap through pastry tips. Oh boy it was fun watching both videos on soap making and cupcake icing! This is an art too. Your real royal icing is not going to harden up on you and you learn to work fast! But iced soap is so divine to look at.

Love Love Love Wax Melts!

     I first heard of wax melts from my sister who was supplementing her Christmas mad money by making and selling them. They smelled lovely, lightly scenting the room. At that time she was using the little melt units with votive candles. Since then I've rediscovered the wonders of having wax melts in my home. I have two warmers, both electric and with a deep 3 inch bowl. 
Love, love love these wax scents!!

"Moonlight Ice" CP & MP Soap Challenge

Iridescent sparkle and crystal clear ice in a cute soap. Blue, pink & lavender highlights on little tiny ice cubes. They look like ice in the moonlight. This month the Great Soapcakes Challenge is all about fun! Soap makers love (well this one does) to mix their melt and pour doo dads into cold process soap. I've had a ball playing around with lots of different techniques!

Pink Tiger Lily and The Soap Challenge Club

Speed Demon Video Included! Tap the YouTube button after the arrow click.

My Soap

My 20th loaf of soap! And I worked up the nerve to enter the Amy Warden Soap Challenge Club with the challenge "Tiger Stripes". I have never tried tiger stripes before and I spent lots of time studying how to keep my soap manageable and runny for the pouring process. The video's offered at Amy's site were a real help too.
