Natural Soap "Pyramid"

What have I been up to?   Stocking up!   Trying to get a good supply of my regular varieties of natural soap on the curing rack to stay ahead of demand.   Of course, I never seem to be able to limit myself to that....gotta get creative and make a few newbies now and then....

I made these last week.  Yesterday I added 4 additional batches....today I'm waiting for lye/water to cool, but planning a batch of Old Fashioned Lye Soap and a batch of Goats Milk-Honey Soap. 

Only 2 "Newbies" among 9 recent batches -pretty good for me:  Orange-Poppyseed  and an Orange-Rose blend that smells lovely, if I do say so myself!   I enjoy, as you all know, combining essential oils to add excitement to my natural handmade soaps....I did a soap with such a blend a couple of weeks ago that I'm very excited about  - I'll blog about it very soon (how's that for a teaser) ....so stay tuned!

I've had a broken ankle and haven't been able to soap! I'm getting the itch and these photos are soooo inspiring!

Bianca, So sorry to hear about your ankle -best wishes for a speedy recovery! There's nothing like some time "off" soaping to make you crazy for it again, is there? I'll bet you're coming up with some brilliant ideas for soapy stuff to do when you're able, and it will be more fun than ever when you can get back to creating. I LOVE your photos, by the way! I'm putting a link to your site on my blog. Take care. :)
