Soap Babbling

It was a so-so day at the market today. I did have some regular customers come down, which is always cool… especially when they tell me my soap is the only kind they will use and they buy it 12 bars at a time. That’s nice.

Anyway, I’ve been mulling over making an orange soap with a black swirl and calling it Alma Mater – because I went to OSU and all, and their colors are orange and black. It’s not that I have a lot of school spirit (I’ve never been much on school spirit) but I figure it’s a good market as a fall/early winter soap. I just need a scent, something that screams “Autumn! Fresh! Football games and leaves!” or something like that. Right now something oak-y or pine-y I suppose would work. I need to get it figured out fast, though, because I’m running out of fall…

I also figure I can do a soap I’ve been calling Cactus Spice (the perfumer named the scent Feliz Navidad) in green and red (it’s dark green right now) and call it Feliz Navidad as well.

I’m also looking for THE PERFECT vanilla spice. I went to The Body Shop with DH a few Saturdays ago, well, it was a trip to the mall actually, and we stopped at TBS because I have to spy on all the big bath and body stores. Anyway, TBS has this killer vanilla spice that I MUST HAVE NOW. So I’m still on the lookout for that from my scent suppliers.

That’s all the news that’s fit to print. I’m dreadfully low on stock, having been in a total funk for most of last week and not getting much done. This coming week I’ll need to crack down and start getting some soap made. Come down and see me at the market, say hi…

    If you make a killer vanilla spice, I am SO THERE.
    I will collect bottles and cans, redeem the deposits, and add it to my soap fund so I can buy 12 bars at a time of the stuff, no less.

    Yep – I’ll be duking it out with the professional bottle collectors, taking beer out of their bellies so I can wash my body with wondrous soap…

    Well I do have the killer Cinnamon Vanilla… The Vanilla Spice I’m looking for is more of a vanilla and nutmeg combo. I have iteration #1 in body butter right now – it’s a blend of gingerbread (lotsa nutmeg there) and sweet vanilla. We’ll see how it does at market this weekend…

    I loved Claire Luna soap–I used to buy them 12 at a time because I lived so far away from Portland! My favorite was ‘fireweed’ (actually, I loved them all). Are you still in business? I finally moved to the westside of the state, only about an hour from Portland. Your soap was the ONLY kind that didn’t make my skin itchy. Any chance of you making more of your amazing soaps???
