Chai Tea & Lavender Soap

We had a great week-end at our markets which was lovely.  On Sunday night at our church my sister preached- if you are interested in hearing it she under the title Who Are You by Caron Somers (she  is an ordained minister) and I am so proud of her. Every time she preaches I enjoy listening to her messages.

I've been having some blogging issues. My sister accidentally posted on this blog twice. Then while I was trying to fix that my new posts seems to be coming up under Splurge Sisters on Jenora's blog but seem okay on other blogs. I'll see what happens this time and try to correct the problem.

The first soap is Lavender which is always a classic scent and we grow Lavender in our back yard which I use in our bath salts, scrubs etc.  Customers often ask if we make our Lavender into essential oil and we don't have the equipment although I'd love to be able to do that.

Here are the latest batch of Lavender Soap photos:

Lavender soap in the mold
Lavender soap poured with dividers
I made two batches and one is all purple and the other has the swirls on top.

Lavender (all purple) Vegan Artisan Soap

Lavender (large bar) Vegan Artisan Soap (I ended up using this one for guest soaps)
Lavender (with swirls) Vegan Artisan Soap
I test every bar of soap I make even if I've make the exact same recipe before as I like to know how the scent behaves, if there are adequate bubbles and how the soap feels on my skin.  I'm pleased to say I'm happy with this bar.  After I test each bar I then have my mother and sister test it as well.

The purple Lavender bar is available here (scroll down the page until you see the Lavender soap).

Next up are photos of my latest Chai Tea Soap:

With added Hempseed oil and cocoa butter this soap is divine and includes our custom essential oil blend. Chai Tea Vegan Artisan Soap can be purchased here.

Hope you all have a great week.

Lovely soaps! Blogger has been weird lately, I could respond on some blogs but not on others. Annoying isn't it?

Pretty pretty soaps!

Just wanted you to know that due to your post a couple of days ago I made my first beer soap. Used Guinness and turned alovely milk chocolate brown. Scented with Clove and Clary sage EO's. So simple pretty. Thanks so much for the inspiration !!

How wonderful that you made beer soap. Glad I could inspire you. Your EO combo sounds great. I'm planning to try a scented batch soon. I'll have to check out your site to see if you posted photos.
