Exactly a month to go before Christmas! Do you feel the Christmas spirit yet?
I have been on a soap making marathon since I got back from Japan, but starting this week, I am going to take it easy all the way to December, or at least that’s the plan. I have started working on new scents and designs, and as it is with unfamiliar territory, there have been surprises. I will be writing about them soon, but before then, here are the last 3 of the 9 holiday soaps I made this year (you may find the others here and here). This last batch looks the least Christmasy, and in fact, they are scents that can be enjoyed the whole year round.
Minty Apple – deliciously tart and minty. I make this popular scent regularly, not just during the holidays.
Sugar and Spice – the lower part smells invitingly of fluffy marshmallow, and the blue and orange portion of spiced orange and vanilla. This photo was taken when the soap was newly made. Since then the colors have become more saturated because of the vanillin content.
Citrus & Pine – Christmas forest meets candied citrus and cranberry. Smells so good, I want to smell this the whole day!
Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
