I made six huge batches of soap for a custom order (using rose clay, turmeric, rose buds, Lavender, chamomile, calendula, cocoa powder, honey and beeswax from my beehives). Also made some beeswax votive and tapered candles for my websites. I spent over 7hrs standing in the soap room to get all these done. I have never worked in the soap room for more than 3hrs, thank God i master-batched my oils yesterday. I hope to post pictures when I cut them tomorrow.

I did nothing but post here. Today, I'm going to test my tester bars to see how they are curing. They should be about 3 or 4 weeks along but since they're lard soaps, they ain't cured yet to mine nose.

Default Farmers Market

I did my first farmers market in our local town, and I was surprisingly happy with the outcome as my sales were very good for just a small market and I plan on doing this every Saturday through September.

Tested 3 different black soaps I made while in Mendocino a few months back. I cannot say I like black soap at all. Too much black sudsy drops in the sink as I wash my hands. One of them might get by in the shower, but the other two are just plain too black. I began shredding one of them to use as confetti in soap. Too bad, because they're pretty enough on their own. But I just won't use them and can't see how anyone I know would want to have black suds dropping all over their sinks or showers.
