Announcing my new soap collection!

Well the moment you've all been waiting for is here. (at least I'd like to think you were waiting for it LOL) I've finally unveiled my NEW exotic soaps.  They are now listed at my Etsy shop I will work on getting them listed on my website, artfire and other online shops, but for now they can be purchased at my Etsy shop.  I was so excited that my first day I listed them I sold several.  I am very proud of these new babies so I won't waste any more time and will get to the good stuff, the pictures!

I'll have to admit I consider this soap my masterpiece. 6 months of research and collecting the right ingredients went into developing this prized beauty.

This isn't for the vanilla ice cream girl, this is for the more adventurous. For those who like to take a walk on the wild side. Very exotic aroma with intoxicating qualities. Contains ground anise from China, anise oil, clove oil and ginger oil to fill the air with an aroma that will keep everyone coming back for more.

I've wanted to make this soap for a long time.  The picture of what I wanted it to look like has been in my head for almost a year and then voila I finally got around to it!!  Smells fantastic too!

It's like sipping on a Mojito on a hot summer day. Bursting with Lime essential oil this soap is a real refresher. Sugar and mint leaves are embedded throughout the soap for exfoliation and a true Mojito experience. It's an absolute delight in the shower. Very refreshing and a great picker upper when you are feeling a little down.

Ok now I know most soap makers have an orange spice type soap and I should have had one by now, I've wanted to make one for years, but others just ended up taking importance over it.  Now I know why, I didn't want it to be just another orange spice soap.  I wanted it to be special.  So here it is!

Just like the name sounds. A big burst of oranges with hints of cinnamon, clove and ginger. Dusted with orange peel and cinnamon for exfoliation. Perfect for the fall season, warming, calming and sweet.

Now this isn't just your ordinary Eucalyptus Lavender, I've put a bit of a twist on it and added some spices.  It makes the aroma much more intriguing and interesting.

It's like Sri Lanka met the Australian outback. With therapeutic aromas such as Eucalyptus and Lavender coming together with a spice blend you are bound to have something unique and special. It's a very interesting combination, for the daring and wild at heart

At first it seemed like an odd combination to try, but then when I started playing around with it I fell in love.  Definitely one of my favorite new ones.  It's just so different and exotic.

Imagine walking through a market filled with Roses, Oranges, Vanilla and a splash of Nutmeg. There now do you picture it better? It's a complex but pleasant aroma. Soft but full and not to mention this soap is a real looker ;-)

Well there you have it 5 new soaps for the holiday season.  I might surprise you and squeak in a few other new ones before the holidays, but not sure yet...the ideas are in my head, we'll see if I can get it done before the holidays.  In the mean time soak up these new babies and enjoy.  They are my pride and joy :-)
They are all at my Etsy shop now, drop by and get yours.
