From My Soap Kitchen

It's been awhile since I last showed you what I have been mixing up soap-wise in my kitchen.  So I thought I would give you a little peek today.

First up, oatmeal cookie soap scented with oatmeal fragrance oil and cinnamon essential oil with a little colloidal oatmeal for the final touch.

Next up is my Tea Girl soap which was inspired by a blog friend and her love of all things tea.  Made with Earl Grey tea and scented with lavender and bergamot essential oils.

Everyone loves a little chocolate.

Chocolate Swirl Soap

Finally, my newest soap is Midsummer's Daydream scented with lavender, peppermint and pink grapefruit essential oils.  The pretty pink colour is due to the addition of pink clay.

Not only have I been busy making soap, I have also been dabbling with some new products.

Body Butter

My whipped body butter contains cocoa butter, mango butter and sweet almond oil.  It has the consistency of room temperature butter and melts into the skin, leaving a nice glow.

And my latest creation:

Chocolate Cupcake Bath Bomb
The frosting is bubble bath and the cupcake base is a chocolate bath bomb containing cocoa powder, sweet almond oil and chocolate fragrance oil.  A little decadent perhaps but a heck of a lot of fun.


  1. Oh my goodness, each one I read about kept being my favorite until I reached the cup cake and then they all truly were my favorites. I want to smell them so badly : )

  2. Love the look and sound of these soaps! I have one that is similar to the first one, just with Cinnamon, Clove and Anis EO. The lavender peppermint pink grapefruit EO combo sounds scrumptious!! xo Jen

  3. you are good! I am really impressed.

  4. That chocolate soap looks so pretty!!! And that bath bomb...I'd probably mistake it and end up eating it!!

  5. Everything is so beautiful(esp.the soap.)I can feel your care and attention to each and every bar from here. Lovely!!

  6. mmmm. i wish this blog was scratch and sniff. my daughter loves bath bombs - making them was a little more challenging than we thought it would be. your cupcake is beautiful!

  7. you are becoming a serious artisan with your body products. a cupcake bath bomb? you're killing me here. so....when are you putting some of this in your etsy shop?

  8. These all make me oh so happy! You are quite the scientist/artist! Love them all, but of course a certain one is a personal favorite:)

  9. The soaps make me hungry! Where are they available for purchase, please? (Found you from Teagirl's site.)

  10. Wow, they all look so pretty! You are really good!!!

  11. Man oh man. I want all of these. You really have a gift.

  12. Your soaps are so beautiful, Tara. Amy is probably thrilled to have one of your yummy bars named for her!

  13. These are absolutly AMAZING! I have never ten anything like these. I'm pretty much awestruck.

  14. Thanks for the SOAPS they're GORGEOUS!
