Natural Soap For the Holidays: "Pumpkin Pie" & "Tannenbaum"

Last year Heirloom's Holiday Natural Soaps went over big with our customers, so I've been busy creating a couple of new varieties to add for 2011:

Tannenbaum Natural Soap from Heirloom Soapworks
 "Tannenbaum" is colored with therapeutic Cambrian Blue Clay and scented with essential oils of Austrian Fir Needle and Spearmint. While these bars are decorative and make festive gifts, they are formulated (as are all of our soaps) with skin-care first and foremost: no synthetics, detergents, parabens, or "fragrance", not tested on animals, and are 100% natural.

These bars are extra-large at a whopping 6.3 oz. each.  These will be ready to ship on Nov.1

Up next "Pumpkin Pie" Natural Soap:

"Pumpkin Pie" Natural Soap from Heirloom

Another new soap for the season is "Pumpkin Pie" Natural Soap.  With skin-friendly ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, honey and essential oils this soap will care for hands & body as it decorates your bath or powder room!  As always, they contain no synthetics, detergents, parabens, or "fragrance", are not tested on animals, and are 100% natural.

I'm a bit anxious about getting these out of the molds...but I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Slices should be ready to ship around Nov. 11th.

For those who read the entire post, I'm doing a giveaway of Holiday Soaps for two lucky soap fans.  Up for grabs is 1 bar of Tannenbaum Natural Soap and 1 bar of Pumpkin Pie Natural Soap.  I will draw 2 names from those who comment on this post (or the sister post at heirloomnaturalsoap(dot)com) on Monday.  The first name drawn will win the Tannenbaum Soap and the second name drawn will win the pumpkin pie soap.  So, to enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment below and you'll be entered.  Good Luck to all!

Thanks Michele, I wish I could figure out how to keep the "ash" down on my decorative soaps. Got any tips?

Your new soaps look divine and the second one looks editable.

I have a few ideas to try, 1) try not gelling your soaps (put in fridge or freezer). I never get ash when I do them this way. The other option is to spray the soap tops with alcohol before curing them.

Ooo, great ideas from Michelle on preventing ash. I knew about spritzing with alcohol, but didn't know about preventing gel. Love your soaps, Becky!!
