Sneak Peek At The New Store


Well dear friends, I’ve admitted this many times, I am technologically ignorant.

BUT I have gotten the online store up.

Say what? Oh yeah, I have finally figured out how to do this. *smile*

Right now, the store is preview mode, so why don’t you mosy on over and take a quick peek? Not all products are listed just yet and some of the soaps will be released as they are fully cured. And as a special treat, all of you dear readers will have a special 25% off discount code ready for grand opening! (You may even get some other treats. Shhhhhhh!)

So for now, check the store out at http://havelinasoap.com. The grand opening is only days away…


Beer Soap 2.0


After getting positive reviews on beer soap, I’ve started making more for sale in the online store. Today’s post shows some photos of the soap in progress.

This is what the soap looked like after I’d combined all the ingredients and poured it into the mold.

This is what the soap looked like after I unmolded it, 3 days later.

Unfortunately the picture I took doesn’t do the batch justice. There was very little soap ash and the colors were still gorgeously vibrant. I was also pretty happy with how the bars look cut.

The bars smell so good too, with hints of chocolate and spices. The colors will get brighter as you use the bar and will look almost as if they were just made. These will be available in the wine & beer 4 pack sampler and as single 4 oz bars. And don’t worry, the online store will be up and ready before the holidays hit!
