New Soaps Coming...

Yesterday I brewed 3 batches of new soaps. They are ready to cut and then will cure for 4 weeks. I made black raspberry soap which has actually turned into a cream color, so I will need to find a clever name. Then I made a chocolate soap and added real cocoa powder, but it smells sort of like card board at this point. So we shall see how it turns out in 4 weeks. If it turns out as good as planned, I will name that Death By Chocolate Soap. My 3rd batch of soap is a creamy white soap scented with white tea & ginger. The scent has really held up in this soap so far, I will name this Good Witch Soap. I am hoping these batches turn out okay and then I will add them to my shop. In the meantime I am working on some new body cream ideas as well. I also have lip balm in the works, and some more potions to come. Keep an eye on my shop for my latest bewitching (and possibly bewildering) creations!

Everyone Loves Zombies and Vampires...

I have been having so much fun with my new shop every single aspect has been a fun challenge. Coming up with product ideas, names, labels, listing descriptions, packaging... I honestly love it all!

I'm not sure how these ideas come up, usually it is a quick joke coming from my husband "How about a Zombie Scrub, that removes dead skin?" Brilliant.

Then I thought of a body cream for Vampires. I named it Vampire's Kiss and it made it to the Dark Romance etsy gift guides. Awesome.

I had a customer write to me requesting a Werewolf item. Hmmmm. Werewolves. So I asked her for some ideas and she suggested a woodsy scent. My imagination took flight from there. I created a Werewolf body cream scented like a dark forest.

Also having fun with my Frankincense and Myrrh candles, smells amazing. So I hope you will take a moment to check out my shop and see what I've been up to...

Have a delightfully dark day!
