I have been buried in pounds of soap the past week. A couple years ago, I made several soaps using Rice oil… it made for a very nice soap. But, because I have to have it shipped in, I switched back to Olive oil. However, the price of Olive oil has risen past the point of being reasonable. It is more cost effective to ship in large quantities of Rice oil, than to continue purchasing Olive. Which makes me happy, as I prefer the Rice soap anyway.
Later I will give each soap it’s own page, description, but for now here’s what I have on the cure shelves:
Lavender, made with essential oil – my all-time favorite face soap
Sheherazade, an exotic, sensual scent
Oatmeal Milk & Honey, one of my most popular scents, consistently over the years
Yuzu, citrus – still a big favorite also
Egyptian Spice, very popular, earthy, warm and sexy
On my to-do list this weekend:
A Love Spell, maybe
Sandalwood Vanilla, maybe
On another note, I’ve opened a shop in a local Emporium. It’s a new market place located in West Carrollton, Ohio, in the old Roberd’s Furniture store. It’s dubbed, The Mall without Walls. Vendors, crafters, resellers – all are welcome to come set up shop. Hours are Thursday – Sunday from 9 a.m – 5 p.m., subject to change.
My shop is the Picket Fence Gifts – and won’t be missed – a holiday gift shop, rotating with the holidays. And of course, I’ll have soaps… and maybe soon some lotion too. Special requests welcome. It’s also my hope to start reselling other wahm products. So, if you sell a handmade product, with a low wholesale minimum, please contact me.
