What's In Your Shower? #1

Posted on December 31, 2017 at 4:20 AM

Most soapmakers have a pile of soaps at their sinks and in their showers and bathtubs. We simply have to try out new scents, try new oils and butters in our recipes, check out new coloring techniques, and experiment in dozens of ways. After we make, we must try out the results! Recently, one of my packaged soaps had an accident with liquid...the labels were ruined, and since there was a hole in the shrink wrap, the soap got wet...what a perfect time to revisit that soap in the shower!

So this bar of Italian Sunrise (featured in an entry from Feb. 2016) has been my favorite soap for the last two weeks! The scent is a citrus-herbaceous blend of essential oils that is still strong and lovely. There is nothing like citrus to lift and cheer my mood! The lather is bubbly but still creamy and the soap has matured nicely. The recipe was never one of my favorites, since I didn't think it long lasting enough, but this soap is lasting well and it is not harsh at all.

I decided that every few weeks I would enjoy sharing an update of what soaps are hanging out in our shower...

Except for the Italian Sunrise (which has a place of honor on a different rack- this is our current soap stash. From left to right:

First off is a tiny sliver of vibrant pink, turquoise, and white that Phoebe got in her bag at the 2017 ADGA Convention in Atlanta, GA. It came from Nikki Chenail at Tiny Dreams Farm in Montgomery, AL. I think it was Raspberry Lemonade...I do love the scent! The mica use is enough that there is a lovely sparkle to the bar, but the white is a tad rough on the skin...I think she may have used a cosmetic glitter in that portion. In all, it is a soap I would be willing to buy to use myself!

Next up is the orange-ish bar. It is an old bar left over from a soap swap from about 8 years ago! Soap makers often join swaps, sometimes with a theme, and send enough soaps (or lotion samples, lip balms, or?) for each person in the swap to a central person with their shipping money, and the central person divies up boxes of goodies, one per participant, and you get a box of stuff to try! This soap has no scent remaining, but it still has a very nice creamy lather. It came from Panjora in CA. I do not remember what this soap was called...but she also sent a stunning vibrant fushia to yellow ombre that I loved- some kind of a grapefruit type note- perhaps her Do You Yuzu? I haven't done a swap in years...it was a lot of fun.

The last bar on the left dish is part of a bar that was purchased from a fellow goat milk soaper in Kansas several years ago so I could smell a fragrance that many people were raving about at the time. It was fig something...which it turns out we didn't like, then or now! The soaper gave up her craft to adopt several children and my favorite fragrance supplier no longer carries the scent. To us it is cloying and gives us headaches...and since it really sticks on your skin...yuck! That small piece of soap will be in the shower forever!

The right dish is all Goat Harmony Soap! The large bar is Simple Calendula (also damaged in the liquid spill with Italian Sunrise) and since we gravitate to the scented soap, it will last a long time. The tiny bits on top are the final remnants of the last bar of Cocoa Butter and Vanilla Salt bars. It was made several years ago and contains ground vanilla beans for a nice light exfoliation and has no scent added. It is Phoebe's favorite plain soap...I will need to make more for her soon.

Finally on the right- I use a nylon soap sack to put the tiny bits in...the salt bar pieces and the Raspberry Lemonade will head that way soon, but certainly not the fig something!

Do you have one favorite soap you use in the shower or at your sink, or do you have a selection, too?
