I've been studying hard in my Aromatherapy Certification course and decided to take a couple of Mental Health days to catch up on things that have been neglected, like buying groceries and make a batch of soap that's been on my mind.
In a small brown bottle I've had a mixture of essential oils brewing for a soap fragrance. Each day I have a little smell to see how it's coming along and give it a shake then put it back in the refrigerator.
It felt so good to make a batch of soap and try out my new fragrance, I also tried adding some natural yellow color by using the cooking spice Turmeric.
I think I could stand to add a little more next time!
Here's what my Arizona Sunshine moisturizing bar soaps look like naked. They smell wonderful with top notes of Grapefruit and Orange and base notes of Vanilla and Patchouli - yum!
I also snuck in a Lavender Rose Facial Bar recently.
I used Olive Oil solar infused with Calendula and Chamomile Flowers, Castor Oil for nice bubbles and lightly scented with pure essential oils of Lavender and Rose.
Here's the naked Lavender Rose Facial Bars.
Handcrafted with skin loving pure essential and carrier oils for an extra gentle facial soap.
I used one of my favorite hot process soap recipes for the Arizona Sunshine soap, if you'd like to see the step by step tutorial click here. The other recipe is from Soap Making Resource and was a cold process recipe that I turned into a hot process soap.
If you'd rather not make your own soaps I've added both of these to my Etsy store Life Scents.
