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!
