I’ve been making summery soaps lately, with wild gathered herbs & fruit, plus infused oils, all to capture the season; High Plains, with sweetgrass oil and sage & conifer essential oils, a summertime limited edition,
Roses (a creamy goatmilk soap infused with Damask rose petals and swirled in shades of pinkest pink), Huckleberry (with shea butter and huckleberries), Fireweed, which uses the flowering tops of one of my favorite wild flowers, and smells deliciously of jasmine, ylang and patchouli, Green Dusk for Dreaming (an herbal blend of marjoram, lavender and pine) and Thundershower, with mint and French lavender to cool off with after a day in the sun. ‘Pend Orielle Skies’ reflects the shimmer of skies on big water, with a refreshing grapefruity-lemony blend and silky shea butter.
More cooling, from the peppermint of ‘Glacier’ and the cool lavender and fir needle of ‘Secret Garden’ are on the curing racks and will be ready to ship soon.
Spring having slipped away from us with the last of the rains, the last few Hyacinth and Lilac bars are on sale while they last.
