However, once in a while I do make a "limited edition" batch or two because I can't resist a particular fragrance. This happened to me recently, after using Cocobong's fabulous Sandalwood-Vanilla soap (you can read all about how her soap became an instant favorit here in IL on my post of Oct. 25th) the fragrance was heaven on earth! I had to have more, and since international shipping is outrageous, I knew I would have to attempt a batch myself. I did CPOP, (cold process/oven process) and while it smells quite nice, it's not quite the same....: ( Next time I'll do HP (hot process) in the ol' crock pot which always retains the true scent best for me.
Here's the photo of my batch:
This soap has a scent that I really like...it's unique, with mostly sweet floral Orange Blossom, but then there's the "sandalwood" ( from Amyris EO) for a "dusty" finish. A soft feminine fragrance that lingers lightly on the skin.
These Limited Edition soaps will be included as a special treat in my special-order gift baskets, and as gifts for certain folks who are on my "nice" list (Santa's not the only one with one! LOL!) I'll list a few in my Soap Shoppe as 97% Naturals at a Special Holiday Price, but keep in mind that these are VERY limited in quantity, so if you want to try one please don't wait too long.
