Eucalyptus and Rosemary 100% pure coconut soap with French Grey salt brine. This whole production of the coconut soaps were difficult to work with. The soap is not my favourite, though it is a good one for cleaning greasy, dirty hands. The batter set too quickly to put it nicely into the molds. I still have two molds in the freezer which have to come out shortly. Freezing helps the soap slide out of the mold.
This is Solseife brine soap with a little natural colourant and Shamama attar from India. Attars are painstakingly made over a long time, with flowers, herbs and spices. Under the pink soap is Aleppo, laurel berry and olive oil, one of my absolute favourites. It is mild and beneficial for skin and I shampoo my hair with it too! The bright yellow is canola solsiefe (brine soap) with paprika infused oil.
That is it for from scratch bar soaps. I have double this amount already boxed and curing. There is some melt and pour soap base left and I will do some of those with pretty colours and smells that are popular and some liquid soaps too. The shea will whipped with various oils for body butter and I will make some solid lotion bars and that is it. The big craft fair is the best attended in St. Paul usually and is November 28th this year. One good thing, soap is not a perishable commodity and improves with age, so if it doesn't all sell, it will only get better. Are you coming to the craft fair?
