I’m going to have a Busy week making Soap, especially Loofah Soap!

24 Jul

I had another busy week at the Boonton Farmers market. The funny thing is that my online customers buy completely different soaps than my farmers’ market customers. I just can’t figure out why? But they do……

Anyway, I’m almost “Sold out” of all the Loofah soap I made. People are just  loving it. Who knew?

Loofah Soap

This is what some of them said:

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the loofah soap

“Keep stock on that loofah boy, I love it!

(of coarse I’m not a boy but I understood what they were saying)

I’m just amazed and thankful that they are loving it! So guess what I’m doing the next few days? Yep! making Loofah Soap. I am so happy that people are loving my soaps. I guess it’s because I’m a people pleaser. It just bothers me when someone isn’t pleased w/ one of my soaps that I have to make it right……

P.S.  if you are interested in buying a bar – this is where you can buy Loofah Soap!

Have a great Day! I’m off to make soap:)

Well, I’m not sure about you but I’ve had a short long week. (if you know what I mean) I’ve been trying to get my head in order. But I think the heat has got the best of me….

I’m trying to get the Soaps ready for tomorrow’s Farmers market. Sometimes, I feel as if I’m going into reverse. It’s going to be so HOT —-

Will there be anyone at the Farmers market? If people come …. Good time to sell right? What’s better than a Great bar of Soap to wash the Stink off of your Body when you’ve been sweating All Day. LOL

Here are pics of  a couple of soaps…I made this past week. The 2nd bar I believe I may have added a little too much titanium dioxide….O’ well. I think it still looks good…….What do you think?

I think this is a Great Day to talk about Sea Salt in soap……

26 Jun

Hello,

Hope everyone is having a Fine week. Mine going fairly well…….No complaints…thank God!

I thought today would be a Great day to talk about Sea Salt in Soap………..Why? because One of the frequently asked questions I get at the Farmers Market is why Salt Bars?

The first few times I gave  “duh” kind of answer and then I realized that wasn’t the answer I should be giving. The answer I should be giving is this:

1) Sea salt contains minerals such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, potassium and iodine which are nourishing to your skin.

2) The salts exfoliate your skin. Which leaves  your skin soft and moisturized.

3) Salts can detoxify your skin.

4) Salts can relax muscles.

*****Dead Sea Salt  is  however different since the Dead Sea has a higher concentration of Salt****

Did you know The Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth? Yep…It is! AND the evaporation rate is higher than the water that flows into it.

It’s called the Dead Sea because no life can live it…..No plants, fish, sharks nothing! But, it’s great for people with Skin problems such as eczema.

I like using all kinds of Salts! Here’s what I have listed in My Shop:  Salt Soaps….

 

Now, onto other things: I’ve started a Soap of the Month Club. It’s a way to sample some of the different kinds of soaps I make. I have a 3, 6 & 12 month club…….

Soap of the Month Club!

 

Here’s the soap I was making yesterday..Didn’t come quite like I wanted but it’s acceptable:)

White Tea Scented Soap

So, here are just a few of the things I’ll be doing. I have a few requested soaps that I need to make……and I want to try something different. I have this Great idea in my head but I’m not sure if it will work.
