Well… it was a productive Easter Monday and look at what has come out of the moulds !!!!!!!!!!!!
They are all curing now and will be ready for the next market on 2nd May and some have been made specially for the Mothers Day Pamper Packs so they are a very limited edition!
It was a huge soaping day and I am so happy with how these soaps have turned out. I can’t wait to start using them.
I will cut them up tonight, the EVOO Castile is still sooooooo soft and buttery and has an awesome Lemon Eucalyptus scent – so very refreshing! The colour is a bit darker now from this batch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil but could lighten over the next few weeks.
I am also very pleased with how the super conditioning bar turned out – it will be a very decadent bar with lots of shea butter and organic avocado oil with Green Tea and lots of beautiful organic flower petals sprinkle don top!
This is a VERY LIMITED Edition and I am not sure how many bars will make it into the store.
The Rice Bran Castile is also very nice looking and feels firm already but will still need to cure until the next market. It is totally natural, unscented and uncoloured – a pure and gentle bar.
Some Close ups of the bars………………. !
So…… now to wait for these to cure and if you are interested in reserving any of these, drop me a line and I will keep you on the list…. I already have a few reservations for the Floral Confetti bars!
It’s been a busy weekend and the market at Penneshaw on Sunday was a huge success.
I ran out of my extra mild castile soap but the good news is that I have made some more today and they will be ready for the next market on 2nd May at Penneshaw.
There will be some changes with the market from next month, apparently the food stalls have decided to relocate to another part of Penneshaw but the Art & Craft stalls will stay at the oval right through winter.
I should be okay with my gazebo set up and hopefully it won’t be too wet the day before so the oval won’t get too muddy for the market days. Not sure how it will go but I am determined to make it to the market every month unless somehting major happens.
There is also a good possibility that I will be sending soaps and balms for sale at the Penneshaw Visitor Information centre before the next market provided I can get enough stock together in the next couple of weeks. Exciting times and lots of projects to get stuck in to.
I am also working on the Mother’s Day packs – the bars of soap for Moms are looking very pretty and curing well, hopefully my other items to go in the Pamper Packs for Mother’s Day will come along nicely as well…….. stay tuned!
