First Batch of Hot Process Soap

Yep...That's meeee! My husband really couldn't keep from taking this picture. I look like I'm about to go do ....actually I don't know. I do know that I look crazy. Well as they say "better safe than sorry".

I am so excited I made my first batch of hot process soap on Saturday. I am truly a soap addict now. I loved my finished product. I gave some out as samples they were a little too soft still so as of now they are still on the rack curing. Hopefully they will harden a bit more. It doesn't matter I DID IT! TOTALLY FROM SCRATCH! Lye and all. I will post more as the testing phase continues. However you are still more than welcome to order my regular olive oil and goat's milk soaps from the website.

Don't forget to sign up for the October Giveaway. You have until the end of the month to do that. Thanks for looking...I'll keep posting if I know ya'll are reading.

October Giveaway!!!

Hawaiian Tropic Soy Candle in Tin


Mulled wine Parraffin Candle in Victorian glass jar


Hi all! I decided to do a giveaway at the end of this month to encourage people to follow my blog. Here's the deal...Do these three things and be entered to the monthly drawing:
1. Sign on to follow my blog
2. Leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me what's your Favorite scent (in candles or bath and body)
3. Leave your name (first name will do) and link in the comment (if you have a link)

Do ALL three of those things and I will put your name in the drawing. To be fair I will have my 22month old nephew pull 2 names out of a bowl --- hope I can get him to pull them ;-). I will be giving away a bar of soap and a soy candle. The first name pulled will win "soap" and the 2nd name pulled will win the "candle" (the winners choose any soap or candle that I have in stock).
Hope you participate and tell a friend!
If this goes well I'll do something different every month!
Giveaway ends at midnight on October 31, 2009
My best to all,
Miranda Yvette

Soaps and Body Sprays -- Made Yesterday

I'm really trying to work on my photography skills LOL! It's really hard trying to make these pictures look like a professional took them. I think they look pretty good.

I'm also thinking about doing a monthly giveaway to try and get more people following my blog. So if you're reading this go ahead and sign up to "follow" me and you can get a chance to win something every month. I'm considering a "Candle Giveaway"...I'll try and have everything posted this weekend. If anyone has any marketing ideas I'm all ears. I would love to hear any advice.

Assortment of Soaps

Our Body Sprays contain no alcohol or water and they can be used to freshen up linens, detangle hair, as a room spray, car spray, and of course body spray! The list is endless...

"Fresh Lavender"
Lavender Goats Milk Soap with Lavender petals added! Smells so good! These are all 4.5 - 5oz. Sizes vary since they are all hand poured.

(Need Help Naming this one's the same as the other green one
just a different mold)
4.5 - 5oz Sizes vary because they're all Handpoured

This soap is all natural with the essential oils of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Patchouli
(it's a real nose opener especially for these winter months)
Patchouli: is really woodsy &earthy it's good for relieving stress, headaches, anxiety, and depression.

A Few of Our Products

This is a packet of bath bombs! I know bombs right?! They dissolve in your bath water like an alka-seltzer tablet. There are two in the pack for $2. You only need one per bath unless you're like me and just dump them both in because I like to see them fizz up! Loads of Fun and good for your skin too! They contain emollient oils and butters.
"Bath Time Critters" soap you just choose the critter
$3.00 each

8 oz. Hand Soaps $5 each
Some are made with jojoba beads for that extra scrubbing..the orange bottle on the right is an example of how it would look without the beads.
