Acai Oil

pronounced Ah-sigh-ee.

Where might one purchase this very elusive oil in the UK? I've been doing more research for future products and came across this little beauty.......but can I find it? Can I buggery!!!!

One is not amused.
All I've come up with so far is that anything even Acai related is extortionately expensive.

This is an everyday shampoo bar made with my usual blend of olive oil, walnut and coconut oils, with added sunflower oil and a dash of honey.
Scented with bergamot, palmarosa and an hint of Ylang.

Again, made using the hot process method.

A new shampoo bar for brunettes, or those with itchy, flaky scalps.
Made with sage infused olive oil, walnut oil, avocado oil and a touch of coconut oil.
Scented with cedarwood, tea tree, peppermint and sweet basil essential oils, all of which are reported to help maintain an healthy scalp and hair.

I made this one HP, as I will be making all my shampoo bars as this allows me to add specific oils/butters and additives for specific hair care needs.

What a wonderful idea, online networking at it's best. Just imagine the journey this could take you on....

I was browsing some serious soap p0rn on Flickr and came across this delicious soapy beauty.
It's incredibly eyecatching, and visually unusual, which always appeals to me. This is the kind of soap I would buy, the kind of soap I aspire to make.
It really is very beautiful, and deserving of the title 'artisan'.

This was made yesterday and I've just finished cutting and trimming.
Although it's unscented it's beautifully sweet smelling, very fresh and mild.
Made with extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil, along with pureed cucumber this little soapy wonder is incredibly mild

Just need to wait for a few weeks whilst it cures!

I Avo Dream

My latest soapy offering, entitled 'I Avo Dream' in reference to the inclusion of avocado oil, avocado butter, and pureed avocado! Phew :D

Scented with sweet basil, peppermint, rosemary and a touch of litsea......the resultant scent is of mint humbugs, sweet, minty with a hint of something deeper from the sweet basil.

Scaremongering much!

Whilst I was browsing the interweb for bio-packaging for my products, I came across an article that made me giggle, not because it was particularly funny, but because it is scaremongering at it's best, as well as being ill-informed and poorly written.
Entitled Are cosmetics destroying the planet it contradicts itself in several places, and produces barely credible 'evidence' to back up it's claims.
May I suggest that, if you need to write an article so entitled, you take the time to research the subject fully, not just use gross generalisations to promote your own agenda.

Creativity continued.....

For once, I have actually managed to stick to my creativity pledge *woohoooooooooo*  

I've begun stitching my cross-stitch art card, I've made a soap, and a 'poo bar, plus I've been continuing playing with a recipe for a soap-based shower smoothie, and so far so good.

Here are some pics to prove to the world that I can indeed remain motivated, if I put my mind to it   

I'm really happy with both soaps.

Man, I adore this song

Such beauty, and purity in both voices, such simple yet striking lyrics.

Enjoy :D
