Saponification Saturday

Need a break form budget planning 2017?  Me too. Let's talk soap instead.

Thanks everyone who bought soap over the Christmas season, it was a blast sending it all over the country. My production has been slow the first part of this month but it will be picking up soon as more supplies arrive. I was gifted some grand new soap molds (Thank you Brownells) and I'll be using them in the near future.

For this next week, all ready to be shipped out, I have  fun bars created with five different colors and an essential oil blend of lavender, lemon grass and grapefruit. It's light and happy. Just like me! (Ok, now I'm just pushing it.)


Sometimes I like the bottom of my soap logs as much as I do the top. This is one of those times.
The finished bars are a bit Cheshire cat is appearance, crooked smile and all.





And each bar is different from the next since I used a funnel to pour the soap. As the soap thickens the lines look different.


Made with Sweet Almond oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter, these will have a moisturizing lather with a sweet spring like smell. I have only nine left as a few drop by visitors grabbed a few. 



Here's how it works.

Each bar is just $5 and is a hefty 5.5 oz chunk of a bar. Far cheaper than you will find on ETSY  or other websites. I keep costs down NOT by using cheap base oils or less expensive fragrance oils but my using recyclable packaging and forgoing costly labeling/marketing. I do not sell in any stores or on any other websites.  I do not sell wholesale but will take special orders with two month lead time. I use only natural plant  materials or clay powders for coloring and high quality essential oils for wonderful scents . My supplies are limited (the Looney Bin is small and has limited storage) and I rarely make the same bar exactly the same twice, I like to keep the process creative and fun! I post soaps here as I make them, sometimes every Saturday, sometimes only once or twice a month. 

It is first come, first serve, so if you are interested please email me at opies99@gmail.com. Postage in 2017 is as follows:

1-3 bars      Priority Mail $7.15
4-10 bars    Priority Mail $13.60
11-20 bars  Priority Mail $ 18.85

  1. Do you ever sell something like a "grab bag" of the odd ends/soap scraps? I thought it might be fun to have little one-use bars in the camper.

    1. Yes, I could do that. I often use my scraps to make my laundry soap, so I always have some around. email me if interested, I'm sure we can work something out.

    2. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

  2. Are you familiar with Columbus Foods for soap making oils? I found their prices to be very good and they are in your neck of the woods (I think). I wish the were closer to me. I was also wondering if you ever use lard or tallow since you raise your own animals.

    1. I sure am, I get all my oils from them. Shipping is a bit high but price and quality is good and get my order super fast! My essential oils come from Soapers Resource. And yes I do use lard but haven't rendered any in a bit. It's one my to-do list!
