Coming soon!

We have a beautiful Pinot Grigio scent in our possession and have combined this with an equally gorgeous jasmine.
The end result is a 3.5-pound batch of soap that is entering its gel state.
Interestingly enough, this is not an overly floral or overly wine scent. The combination of the two fragrances appears to have a sweet, fun and flirty note that we'll describe later once this log has gone through cure.
Waiting to become a batch of soap is our latest essential oil combination of pink grapefruit, lemongrass, rosemary and a tiny bit of litsea cubeba for a very fresh, energizing combination. The trick will be to see how this survives gel, once we get the batch made. I do not want the heat from the gel to burn off particularly the pink grapefruit EO. It will still be an energetic blend even if we lose the grapefruit, but we just don't want to lose the grapefruit.
Look for more soaps to be included online within a week, starting with Patchouli Mint and ending with a gorgeous Olive Leaf blend, pictured, that could be called That's Amore!Suggestions for names are always welcome!

Madness and mayhem

The website has finally been updated. Our sincere apology to everyone. We ran into a glitch in the web design that led to erased photos and other electronical quirks. It was absolutely maddening.

Winter was hectic and we have been scrambling to get soaps back in stock. Last year was a record year for our bars and that means we get to play more in the laboratory than normal.

We will be adding all new items to the Create-A-Tory and keeping it updated now that most of our data has been restored and the midnight oil has been burned.

There are plenty of new scents and lot of favorites back in inventory. We're also upgrading our site with the ability to add video so you can see your products made or get a virtual tour of our tent etc. We have also joined Twitter and you can follow us there for updates on the business, our playtime, products and sales, and even spur of the moment sales.

So join us on Twitter! Facebook coming soon!
