I am leaving for Costa rica on Wednesday!!! I am so excited. I will attempt to blog while there, but we are going to some very remote places so I may not have access to a computer or internet.

Hopefully, I can get Dylan to take pictures of the many soaps I have curing on the rack before we leave. Last weekend I made a chamomile soap, green tea and cucumber soap, pink sugar soap, sandalwood soap, and some soy mocha cafe candles. So that is at least 10 picture that are due. I really like how all these soaps have come out. The scents are all great too. I think I will be keep them as permanent scents in my line. I will probably start making my Halloween/Thanksgiving soaps when I get back. I am planning right now to make the following scented soaps pumpkin pie, cranberry, caramel apple, apple pie, and brown sugar.

Tomorrow I am going to try to make nag champa soap, neroli soap, white tea and ginger soap, and coconut lime verbena soap.


  1. Have a wonderful trip. I am very much wanting to go to Costa Rica - anywhere in Central America really. Trying to talk my hubby into the whole year long sabbatical idea. It may be awhile so enjoy it extra for me!

  2. Sounds like you'll have fun!
    And Pumpkin Pie soap sounds sooo good right now! Humm....guess what I'll be doing later this week! Lol!

    Oh, the colors I used in the last two batches of soap were Red Oxide (patchouli) and Green Oxide (coconut lime verbena)
