Tinas Hand Crafted Soaps
The other day, I received a package. Here's what was inside: An avocado soap, an oatmeal yoghurt soap, a honey, cream & lanolin soap (up there on the left), and sample sizes of rose and egg soap.
Tina has been making her own hand-crafted soap for a while and is considering opening an online shop. She asked me if I would mind trying out her creations and giving her my feedback.
Included in the package was a detailed hand-written ingredients list for each soap. Just reading them was enough to get my appetite going – yoghurt, avocado oil, oatmeal, rose, egg (yes, really), honey, and cream.
Love the feel.
Love the scent.
Love the look.
And, after a week of non-stop testing, I have fallen well and truly in love with Tinas beautiful creations.
Tina, how soon until your shop opens?
The soaps started developing in my mind as I was making balms and peeling/washing powders and reading more about cosmetic products. It is very fascinating to see how they turn out. My poor friends have had to listen to a lot of talk about soapmaking and have been testing them for a while now. I like to make both more "natural" soaps with e.g. egg, carrot juice, honey and avocado, but also some colorful soaps with micas and scents.
I am working on selling my soaps and will keep you informed :-)
