Well Happy New Year! The start to the New Year was a little unusual for us. We had two ice storms, that hit us, one right after the other. As beautiful as they are, the chaos they cause. We had no power for 4 days, and just got internet yesterday. Some trees came down across the driveway to my little soap shop,and with the ice and debris everywhere, made it very treacherous. We have quite the clean up job ahead of us.
But now with everything up and running again, I am back to work. A new soap that I made in early December is Turmeric Soap with Activated Charcoal and Coconut Milk. You probably know that turmeric is good for you when you eat it, but did you know that turmeric is also good for you topically. Turmeric possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Did you know that it has been used for thousands of years to treat various skin disease and heal wounds.
Using turmeric in soap is very beneficial for your skin. It is known to be a natural acne treatment. It is also know to revitalize your skin. It provides a gently exfoliation to excess skin. It invigorates the skin, acts as a natural anti-bacterial agent, and it helps to treat and prevent dryness. This soap is now online and available for purchase.
Some other new products that will be on the website soon, is our luscious cream shaving soap. This soap is a combination of liquid soap making and cold process soap making. It has a nice soft, creamy lather, and gives a really nice close shave. I have been using it on my legs and love it, but it is also good as a facial shaving soap for men. Also new is our Beard Balm. I was asked several times if I make a beard balm, so here it is. I don’t have a beard (thank goodness) but I have used it on my hands, and I really like it. Like any balm it helps to moisturize and protect the skin.
Something I’m working on and hopefully will have available soon, is a natural deodorant. I have made a couple, but I’m not 100% happy with them, so I will keep trying.
If you like bath bombs, you can look forward, to a nice selection in the near future. I will be offering two sizes, as well as regular bath bombs, and foaming bath bombs. So keep checking the website, as I try very hard to keep it updated.
Wishing you a healthy, happy 2018~Darlene
