Moonlight Sonata Handmilled Soap with Emu Oil

Just cut my Moonlight Sonata Nearly Natural Handmilled Soap with Emu oil today! 21st century grandma's olive oil lye soap without the bite. Moody, more intense Musk. Strong, unisex, heady fragrance, with notes of fern, lily, hyacinth, jasmine and a hint of orris. This fragrance is completed with a powdery and sweet amber note. Incredibly sexy, yet not too heavy or cloying. All vegetable soap with added triple refined AEU certified American emu oil for its well known healing and moisturizing properties. Includes shea butter and cocoa butter! chuck full of NATURAL goodness. NO added synthetic chemicals except for pthalate-free fragrance oil and a dab of colorant. Highly recommended for those with problem or sensitive skin. Nice hard, long lasting 5 ounce bar of soap with good cleansing properties and good suds. Taking orders now, I have 6 bars, this will need to cure for 2 weeks to harden up nicely and be extra long lasting. $6.50 a bar. Multiple discount of 15%. USPS Priority Shipping.

Cooked New Batch Handmilled Soap Today

I made my first new batch today, all the better so I won't be overly fretting about my mother. I made a robin's egg blue and white marbled Moon Lake Musk Handmilled Soap with Triple Refined American Emu Oil. It smells oh so divine and hopefully will come out halfway pretty. Swirling in the mold with rebatch is difficult, it comes out more a marblized effect but still nice and two toned. I added a bit more water to this rebatch in order to get a better two toned effect. anxious to unmold it but must wait till it cools down. I will pic it when I do and see what you all think! this is what it looked like the last time I did it.

NEWSFLASH! Greening up My Line

I am now offering my glycerin soaps in all natural pure soap base, the only chemicals in this true soap is the lye used to make all soap and the fragrances and FD & C colors I may add. Melt and pour glycerin soaps are not true soap, they are chemical stews, even the premium glycerin soap base I was using had them in it. Old fashioned glycerin soap is not even SOAP it is classified as a cosmetic by the FDA. It bothered me, I did keep the chemicals to a minimum but I have searched high and low in order to offer a better product that is safer and healthier to use. My NEW natural glycerin soap does not have these chemicals in it. It is true soap, pure and simple. Classified as SOAP by the FDA. The only chemicals will be the little bit of fragrance oils and colorings I add to some of them. I will be updating my sites to show this new greening of my soaps. I am proud to offer this vast improvement in my products, your skin will love it, and I will be able to do it without raising my prices much at all. Remember, it is the synthetic petrochemicals our skin hate, this new soap will be far kinder to your skin. It is a superior product and still affordable. Be kinder to your skin and body, use pure soap!

What Soap should I Make Poll

I have 6 pounds of cold process soap in to make 3 2 pound batches of handmilled soap. I am wavering on what to make at first. I am leaning towards Moon Lake Musk for my first batch and perhaps one unscented batch and some more dog soap.What do you think? any requests or suggestions!
