How did I get my name?

Isn't that a beautiful picture? Well lets see. I have always had a fascination with the winged white horse called the Pegasus. It is derived from Greek mythology. It is such a beautiful horse and I remember as a teenager reading about Greek mythology and reading about the Pegasus is how I fell in love with it. I use to have a beautiful Pegasus figurine that I treasured from a garage sale that I was at and it had broken to little pieces. I loved this figurine. I said to myself that if I died, I would love to be taken to heaven on a beautiful white horse with wings. What a way to go! :-) So this is how I decided the name my business Pegasus Handmade Soaps. My soaps will take you to heaven :-)

Here is some other information on the Pegasus.

In Greek mythology, Pegasus is the winged horse that was fathered by Poseidon with Medusa. When her head was cut of by the Greek hero Perseus, the horse sprang forth from her pregnant body. His galloping created the well Hippocrene on the Helicon (a …

Just listed some new items

I should have had these up a least a week ago but you know, not enough time in the day but better late then never.

What is first on the list of new items. More new soaps. Yes I am a soapaholic. I have made several batches late last month and are now ready to be listed. And yes the Caramel Egg Nog will be back up again. I actually love this soap myself and it was a big hit. I think it was my best selling soap and I want to thank everyone that bought it and enjoyed it. I will have several more soaps listed early next month.

This new soap is Earthy Spice. It has a unique blend of Patchouli, Clove, Sandalwood and a hint of vanilla. I love love love the way this smells. This is a excellent soap for men. Men prefer a much manly smelling scent and this Earthy Spice is great. Not only is it great for men but for anyone who prefers that a little spice in your life.

This soap is called Indian Healing. Don't know why but just thought with all the essential oils and lemongrass that it would be …

Never Enough Time

Why does it never seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything? Sometimes I get so stressed out because there just never seems to be enough time for anything anymore. I feel I need to step back and smell the roses. Between all the work I put in, making soaps, photos, and now having some items on Ebay, cooking, cleaning, car maintenance, family, husband, my son, and all the other small things, there never seems to be enough time for myself. I feel like I am trying to please everyone and do everything. I have always been this way and although I do know how to say NO and on many occasions I have. That is not really the point, people don't expect me to do for them and they know how I am, if I don't have the time or just don't want to do it, I say NO. But its the things that you NEED to do to keep things running in the household and with your family. Those are the things that I am talking about. Especially the cleaning part. Oh don't get me wrong, my husband does his…

Honey Oatmeal Scrubs are back

Yes my original Honey Oatmeal Scrubs are back! I was retaking alot of my photos with my new camera. I had to remake a lot of my products just to give them new photos. As I don't keep many of my products around after a certain period of time because I don't use preservatives that much, I have to remake a lot of them just to get them their new photos. Well I finally got around to making a new batch of my Honey Oatmeal Scrub.

This scrub is one of my original scrubs. I love this scrub as it contains a lot of oatmeal. When I first finished this oatmeal scrub it very creamy but over a period of a couple of days, the oatmeal and other ingredients soak up the castile soap that is added leaving it with a very moist scrub. I love it because it leaves you skin feeling so good and you know it is good because it contains all natural ingredients such as:

Ground Oatmeal
Wheat Germ
Vegetable Glycerin
Pure honey
Honey powder,
Apricot seed as a extra exfoliant
Castile soap (which gives the scrub a litt…

My New Soap Flopped

Well I attempted to make a new whipped soap the other day and it did not turn out the way I wanted it to. (sighs) But I guess you live and learn. I used some really expensive oils like olive oil which I rarely use because it is the most expensive oil to use. In order for me to use it, I have to buy it in large quantities and it can get pretty costly. So I decided to use this oil in the soap and it did not turn out the way it was suppose to and I am disappointed and hoping by the time it finish curing that is is still usable. My colors all faded after 24 hours and now it is a cream color. ggrrr.

What is whipped soap? Well it is when you whip your solid oils such as the coconut oil and palm oils at room temperature instead of heating it up first. When you whip the solid oils to a whip cream consistency, you then add the rest of the liquid oils. Once that is whipped, you add in your lye and water solution and they you whip that up. The soap is caustic at this point. But I like this method…

A Big Hit Item!!!

(sorry for the bad picture) Well I think it is safe to say that these deodorant bars are a big hit. I have it set up to where you can just select the fragrance or Essential oil you like. These are NOT premade. I custom make these per order so they will be fresh. I have sold so many of these in the past month I can't keep the containers in stock. Both on the website and on Etsy.

I have nothing but all natural ingredients in my deodorant and when I say "ALL NATURAL" they are all natural. Stop by my Etsy shop or my website for more info on these deodorants.

A healthy skin means a Healthier you :-)

Newly Listed Items

Well since this is the first day of the new year, I thought I would post some new items. Actually I was waiting to get my new camera before I started taking new pictures. I love my new Canon A570 IS. My pictures don't need much editing now and I can kick that old one to the curb. My sensor went bad on my old Canon and Canon was nice enough to fix the bad sensor (which they knew about) free of charge but ever since I got the camera back, my photos have been having this green tint to the photos. So even though they fixed the problem,(my screen was not coming on and it was pitch black), the camera hasn't functioned like it use to, so thought it was time to get rid of it.

Ok so much for that. Well I have a few new fun items listed. The first item is these cute adorable Sponge N Soap cupcakes. These were introduced to a customer of mine from my website who asked me if I could do a custom order for her. These cute little soaps were made for her Wedding shower. Each of her guest were …
