DIY Liquid Soap

Posted by on Aug 22, 2011 | 1 comment

With even more information coming out regarding the hazards of Triclosan – the active ingredient in conventional liquid soap, deodorants, hand sanitizers, etc. – and after receiving some questions on facebook today and several in the past I’m finally posting the simple trick to turn my bar soaps into liquid. I prefer bar soaps (obviously). They save on water, packaging, and with a good soap dish they last for ages and mine never contain triclosan or other yucky ingredients...

sparkling apple cider floats

Posted by on Oct 31, 2010 | 1 comment

This is the easiest thing in the world.. so easy I will actually post a “recipe” for the first time in a zillion years on my once recipe-rich blog. I love apple cider this time of year but seeing that our highs temps are still near 90 sparkling cider sounded more appealing. I used to love ice cream floats as a kid but soda is so bad for you and after not drinking it for years it tastes pretty gross to me now. We were picking up a bottle of sparkling cider right next to the ice...

Ok.. so I’m not really going anywhere, but my soap is! I have been working hard on expanding my wholesale market here in the Phoenix area and low and behold, an awesome eco-conscious boutique, Primrose Organics Salon & Boutique, in LA contacted me to get in on the bulk soap action. I am thrilled to have my soaps offered in this adorable shop as they are not only super cute but also highly dedicated to the health of their clients as well as the planet. Primrose Organics is now...

mini soap sale! $12-$13 $10 It is not always size that matters, my friends! At 5’2″ I can attest to the saying that great things come in small packages. My Strawberry Hedgehog short cakes prove my point! These mini trios make fabulous stocking stuffers or little gifts for friends or co-workers. Give individually or gift a whole set. Set these cuties by your sink and enjoy a different aromatherapeutic benefit every time you wash! Great way to try a variety of scents! Each half bar...

“Its All In The Bag” vegan craft sample boxes are super cool! I’ve ordered them the past two months and love all of the random goodies I get.. everything handmade, everything vegan and all of it great! I’ve decided to participate this time around donating cutie pie mini heart shaped soaps in pumpkin-spice, pure lavender, and eucalyptus-lime! The coolest part is 100% of the money that goes to get these awesome samples gets donated to an animal shelter! Click here to get...

candy corny soap!

Posted by on Sep 23, 2009 | 2 comments

Happy Fall! My friend, Kelly, suggested I take a stab at making candy corn soap. While I’m not a huge fan of the candies themselves (usually not vegan and often too sweet anyway) the idea of a super sweet smelling soap in time for October made me smile. This was a real challenge. As you know I deal only with 100% pure, natural scents, usually from essential oils, sometimes from food grade pure extracts. I made use of my favorite organic vanilla extract, pure almond extract, benzoin...

Just a sneak preview of the lavender-lemon soap that will be heading over to Hip Green Deals shortly. If you aren’t already following that site you really should. If you are a bargain hunter and care about the environment (or even just fabulous accessories and products) you should put your email on their list. I would be ashamed to list how many things I’ve gotten from this site out at least they are all eco-friendly: fairly traded, organic, sustainably mined, etc. I don’t...

Time flies when you’re having fun. ;c) To celebrate the one year anniversary of this wildly successful program I am offering up my Mini Soap Club Birthday Set including two smaller sized soaps for those commitment-phobes out there who haven’t been keen to take the plunge yet and for those who are entirely new to the concept.

MS is a serious, cripling disease that affects thousands of people, with no known cure. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society works to find a cure but they need funding in order to do what they need to do. My friend, Robin, has a goal of raising $500 by August 12th, if she meets this goal her donation will be doubled! Lets help her make that happen! With such a short deadline the most efficient thing to do is to make this extra exciting. Every bar ordered will be a Mystery Bar! They are full...

August Soap of the Month Club

Posted by on Jul 30, 2009 | 4 comments

The soap of the month club is in for a real treat! The monsoon has been generous so far this season and so to honor that (and beg for more!) I made a desert rain soap. If you are lucky enough to live in the Sonoran desert you know this smell well. It is the scent that hints to you that rain is coming, or the dewy scent that lingers after a good storm. If you have ever crushed a creosote leaf in your fingers you know exactly what I’m talking about. I’ve spent a couple of months...
