New Whipped Soaps Are Finally Here!

Image
Well you don't have to wait much longer. I finally have the ready.

So what is up first. Our Whipped Monkey Farts soap. Everyone has been asking me to make another batch of this wonderful soap and it is now ready. I have been waiting weeks for this soap to cure as this soap take a bit longer to cure as it does not heat up like the traditional cold process soap, so the curing time takes much longer. There is a little more involved in making this soap but I am so glad it is finally ready. I used a bar this morning and oh my the lather is wonderful.

Next up is our new Whipped Ultra Violet. This is scented with a floral scent of violets. Very nice scent that I know you will just absolutely can't stop sniffing. This is made the same way as our Monkey Farts. These are now available at our Etsy shop. We will have both of these wonderful soaps up on our website soon as well. Next up on the list is our Mango Sage Tea Whipped Soap. OH my this is wonderful too.

What will we have coming lat…

Remembering 9/11

Image
What does this day mean to you? No I haven't had a family or a friend lost during this day. No I haven't personally been affected by it. But for those families that have lost love ones and for those that have lost friends, this is the day to remember them. I remember this day like it just happened yesterday. I live near DC and near Dulles Airport and when I hear the planes descending to Dulles Airport I can hear them over my home. I have only lived in this area for a couple of months prior to September 11th. Yes it does make me nervous especially since one of the planes took off from Dulles Airport to hit the Pentagon. So it is a constant reminder. I wasn't much of a flyer before 9/11 actually I haven't flown at all before then. But I finally was able to take a trip to Vegas a couple of times after 9/11 and I must say I was very very nervous about flying. But I got over it eventually.

I have to say that this day will always be a reminder in many of our hearts and mind…

All Ready To Make Soap But....

Image
Uh huh? All ready to start making a batch a soap when I realize, I have no LYE! Thats right folks, can't make any soap without lye. Being that I am in a new home I keep all my oils in my supply closet and this resulted in me running up 2 flights of stairs. I have decided to keep all my oils in my kitchen so I don't have to lug all those huge jugs and canisters down the stairs. I kept forgetting things like my apron, gloves and goggles along with the scale. So up the stairs I go to retrieve those items that I really need.

As you can see in the photo, I was all set up to make some soap last night and realize there was hardly any lye left. Fortunate for me, I don't have to purchase my lye online. I can get it at Loews for 7.66 for a 24 oz bottle of 100% caustic soda. So now I had to wait. Today I was able to get a batch of my Whipped Monkey Farts Soap done. It should be ready in about 3-4 weeks. Sometime early in Oct.



Update:This is how it looks the day after when it is ready…

Shape of My Heart

Ok for all the oldies out there who would remember this song. I just saw The Professional and love this song that plays at the end of the movie.

This is one of my all time favorites from Sting. It's so awesome! I kept rewinding the DVR back just so the song would start again. LOL. I just wanted to share this song for those who have not heard it and for those that have heard it remember how great it is. Give it a second to start.

Well I managed to get one batch of my Whipped Soap done. Have you tried Whipped Soap before? Well here is a sneek peek at one of my finished batches for September. This will not be ready til around the end of this month

This is Mango Sage Tea. This is made with the combination of a unique combination of refreshing leaves of rubbed sage, juicy mango, papaya, and strawberries, with a wonderful base note of freshed brewed white tea leaves. Smells awesome. Sorry for the bad photo, this is not the best lighting at the time. As you can see I only make very small batches as I wish my soap just flew off the shelves like many other soapers but in time they will. I know they are great and others will soon realize this too. This bar will be approx 5.5 oz of whipped soap. It is a very large bar. But as it continues to cure, it will feel much lighter due to the whipping that was done to make the soap. I have to say that it took me quite some time last Sunday to make this soap. I have had problems …
