I occasionally make a goat-milk soap that is just “plain jane” (no colorants, fragrance, etc). It was because of the plain nature of it that I decided to call the soap “Jane“.
I have begun making my soaps palm free, however, so my old recipe had to be re-done. This one is palm free and I call her “Ethical Jane”.

Hi all! I have been away for a couple of weeks. I needed a break from work and from book writing, and maybe a little bit from creating too. I took 2 weeks to do just “whatever” instead of having a plan. Sometimes that is good for the soul!
My plans were somewhat interrupted due to the recent hurricanes and preparations for the next ones. This made me have a “working vacation” since it caused some extra work at work. At least I got to enjoy some free time in between “on call” events.
I started out last weekend with a quick visit “up north” to see my sister, nieces, and deliver all the goodies I have been making them. It was a nice trip, a beautiful day, and very enjoyable. Needless to say everything I gifted them was well-received. Especially the bath bombs — always the bath bombs! Continue reading “Menagerie – Vacation Round-Up”

I think my husband was a monk in a previous life. He likes everything plain and simple. The same holds true for his soap. He likes plain, un-fancy, un-scented soap. He will accept goat milk, even though it might be a little bit sinfully decadent.
Last week I made him a batch of plain-jane goat milk soap and this week it was finally ready to unmold and cut.

Another weekend has come and gone already, but not without something to show for it!
I spent the weekend making a couple of soaps and bath / body products. In all I got 9 things completed. Continue reading “Busy Weekend = Fun Weekend”
On Saturday I posted a teaser for a couple of soaps that I made that day. Today I unmolded and cut them. As promised, I am posting the “after” pictures.

I am so happy that it’s Saturday again. Weekdays go by so slowly lately, that it seems Saturdays are not very often, even though they occur once a week. However, on Saturday, I am enjoying myself, so they go by so fast it’s like they didn’t even happen.
My favorite thing to do on a Saturday is to make soap. Today I got to make 2 batches. Continue reading “Saturday Soap”
