I have some soaps planned, and in a moment of wild foolishness I actually promised them to some wholesale accounts, even though I haven’t made them yet. I’m still behind, and I can’t help noticing that my mouth is keeping me lodged firmly in Panic City.

No worries.

I have a three day weekend, and I’ll be a soaping fiend the whole time. I’ll take pics and post updates and complain so you guys can see what I’ve got in the works.


...once the soap is in the molds, I’m kinda left standing there and staring at it until it cools enough to come out. So there’s time to revamp a few other things. Currently, I’m brainstorming bath bombs.

I have a couple of scents that are going bye-bye in 2009 – Gardenia and Strawberry Lemonade. And I’m considering a whole big list of stuff to add! Here are the contenders:

  • Almond
  • Ambre de Nepal
  • Isis
  • Jellybean
  • Lavender Honey
  • Magnolia
  • Pele
  • Pomegranate & Black Currant
  • Rare Earth
  • Sandalwood
  • Tonic
Or, you know, whatever strikes my fancy.

How do those all sound? I’m excited to make them.

Even though I never get to use them.

I have one of those el cheapo all-in-one Tupperware shower and tub enclosures, with the bathtubs made for ten year olds. You know, the ones where you can get your back wet, or your legs wet, but not both at the same time? I’m a tall girl, and pretty damn wide if you must know, so I pretty much fill the bathtub and THEN turn on the water. And then sit cramped up with my knees under my chin, wondering if I can possible slither my arm free to get the soap.

I’m sorry, I got distracted.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the new bomb ideas.

Gardenia and Strawberry Lemonade are two of my favorite bath bomb scents, in addition to Pink Lotus. Please don't discontinue them. :(

Hmm, although I would probably try an Ambre de Nepal or Magnolia bath bomb...

LOL, of course I picked one that someone loved! You can probably twist my arm to get your favorites. :)

Armi said...

Okay, I'll take you up on that! I'll ask you to make them just for me, LOL! :)

I wish I could use bath bombs but my tub is like yours and apparently we are the same size. (: I would love Almond as a soap. my wooly soap is not working out as I had hopped but I am still working on it. :)

the new scents sound great, and how about stress relief? Could be a good seller right now.

Molly said...

The Pomegranate & Black Currant sounds wonderful! Wish I had time to take a long soak everyonce in a while! :)
