Blackberry Sage Soap

Hello Soapie Friends,

This week is a busy one for us as we just finished our last Wednesday market at Oak Bay (we got rained out halfway through) but it was nice to see all the customers who came out.

I ran out of my last batch of Blackberry Sage which was a black colour and decided to switch up the colours.

Here she is in the mold looking streusely (a made up word)

I took a few log shots as well.

Close Up Log Shot (pretty happy with the colours especially the purple)

This is a palm free batch and it's a Blackberry Sage scent. I love sniffing this soap and will be snatching one for my berry own.

Another shot with a bit more light

Can you tell I enjoyed taking photos of this one? My soaps are like my children, I get so excited with each new batch and then I preen over them and talk sweetly to them and make sure they look as pretty as can be. Then I usually get pretty excited about it all and can hardly wait until they are ready to use. (really I'm not crazy just passionate about making soap and all things related to it :)

I decided to stamp half the batch for fun.

Thought I'd add a photo of the town cryer who officially opens the Oak Bay Market once a month on Wednesdays. It's pretty fun watching it all and they also have a dance group that comes out and does a dance during the night.

Hope you all have a great week-end.

I'd like town criers please. I need someone to help with my farm marketing.

Soap is delicious looking. Dee-licious.

Your blackberry sage looks beautiful.

I use grape pop mica and green apple pop mica to add colour to my blackberry sage ... but it looks nothing like your soap!

I like this colour combination very much. And the topping is beautiful.

Thanks everyone for the lovely feedback.


Your post made me laugh. If only we could hire the town cryer to market for all of us :)


It's a fairly new mold that I've been making a lot of my soaps with lately.


I'm running scarce with my grape pop mica so I can't use it as much as I'd like. Not sure what I'll replace them with when I run out and so wish I'd bought more.


Thanks, not sure I can duplicate the topping as I just went with the moment but hopefully I can :)
