Happy Fall everyone! The leaves are changing and so are my soap scents! This week I am making another batch of my pumpkin spice soap, so look for it on my Etsy shop come October. In the meantime I made a few new batches of some soaps that are not super popular on my Etsy store, but are really popular when I sell them at street fairs. Funny how that works sometimes. The first soap is my Coffee Scrub bar, which contains no essential oils, just strong brewed coffee and freshly ground beans. It surprisingly smells a bit like chocolate (no idea why!) and I almost considered renaming it mocha scrub bar. What do you think?
The other soap is kind of a funny story. I made this bar a while back and wasn’t a huge fan of it. I’m not even sure I ever sold a bar online either, but I sold a ton of it at a Christmas Festival last year. I made it again to sell at the street fair I did recently and it was a best seller! I guess that just proves I can’t assume everyone wants the same scents in the shower as I do! Oh yea, it was Bergamot Citrus by the way. Made with Bergamot, Grapefruit and Lemongrass oils, along with some pure orange powder for added vitamin C. The scent is fresh, light and citrusy.
That’s it for now, I hope everyone is getting into Fall, it’s been too hot here in Portland to think about pumpkins and cider yet, but hopefully it will cool down soon!
