Cardamom Vanilla Luxury Soap


I love to make Cardamom Vanilla soap for the holidays. Cardamom is a very lovely expensive essential oil so I don't make this all year but it's warm and spicy and rich and delicious!

Here is a freshly cut log. Notice the light inner color when cut? This will eventually all fill in to be the same shade as the dark vanilla shade on the outside. Cool, huh.

Ohh Alkanet root you are a wonderous natural soap colorant


So, you may or may not know that I don't use synthetic lab created colorants in my handmade soap. There are wonderful colors which run the full color spectrum to be had with synth colorants, oxides and ultramarines but I like to be difficult sometimes and so I don't use them. What I do use are natural sources colorants which can be obtained from various cosmetic clays, herbs, spices, infusions, teas and the like. Alkanet root is a putrid stinky herb which can give natural colors which range from black and grey to blues and purples. The trick is finding the amount that works for you and that my friends, is not as easy as you might think, because soap has a naturally high Ph level which alters your colorants. Alkanet is an oil soluble root which means it will release it's color in oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba and so on.

For the last 3 years or so I have been trying to achieve a lovely muted lavender. While I have gotten some nice rich color, I haven't gotten what I wanted, until yesterday.
Here is a pic of a soap I will have ready for the holiday season. It is a lively festivus blend of kadota fig, blood orange essential oil and tart cranberries. I have not named it yet. Right now my biggest hope is that the color will not "grey" too much.

Maggie the laundry girldog turns one!

Maggie our newest rescue baby just had her first birthday!

She loves to jump onto the warm laundry pile fresh from the dryer. She comes running when she hears the dryer door open and chases me to the spot where I drop the fresh warm clothes and jumps in for a snuggle or some good burrowing! Whee!!!

See how happy she is with her little devilish smile ...

Shampoo bars that rock!


Okay so here's my hair, the back of my head actually *wink* after washing with a solid shampoo bar! I think it did a great job. I have fine straight hair that is thick and it tangles easily. This combed through nicely and I did NOT use any conditioner. I did follow the solid shampoo bar with a herbal vinegar rinse of chamomile tea, distilled water and ACV. I have medium brown hair and there is a bit of natural red.


If you are interested in giving them a try you can visit her Etsy Shop here called In A Lather.

Amber Sambaca perfume is back!




Our Amber Sambaca perfume is now ready for order and back in stock!



Amber Sambaca Limited Edition Perfume 1/3 oz.
Our Amber Sambaca perfume is not for the weak at heart. It is a complex, heady exotic perfume said to inspire provocative thoughts of romance and sensuality. Opening with a medley of lush ambers and musky Arabian jasmine sambac, fresh ginger, folded orange and rose absolute into a deep rich array vanilla bean oleoresins, vetiver, sandalwood, lavender seville absolute and tuberose absolute. Finally grounded nicely by myrrh and patchouli in a base of fractionated coconut oil and jojoba oil. This perfume dries down very differently on the skin than the scent directly from the bottle. That said, it must be experienced on the skin for an hour or more to enjoy the many layers and evolutions.
