'Erbs and Lemons


Above is the new style 'Herbaceous' soap, which has had a complete overhaul.
This soap used to have the infamous black line with a white base and a duck egg blue topping.
Time for change. She has become more grounded, more earthy, more fitting for her name.
She has soil, she has pebbles, she has grass and she has a string of flowers draped over her head.
The scent remains the same. No change required there. This all-pure essential oil blend is incredibly uplifting for gardeners. Top notes of lemon-scented Litsea sparkle amongst Thyme, Rosemary and Marjoram. A nasal clearing blend, which is fabulous for giving the body a boost after a long day digging.


And here we have little Miss Inconspicuous - the new 'Lemonade Lounger' for 2011.
This soap has changed so much during my time making it. The 2 black lines were present last year, but again...yawn...I've done it to death so I changed this up a bit with a scattering of vanilla beans (and paste), again Dead Sea Mud was sprinkled inside and on the top along with some dark Muscovado sugar, which has melted into the top of the bars.
The scent has been changed a little. Inside this beauty is a blend of Lemon, Litsea, Ho Leaf and light Patchouli. Again, an earthy base note with zingy lemons and soft buttery after-wafts!
Balls of all colours are dropped through to add a bit of somethin' somethin' and the Vanilla bean paste is visible so it also takes on a dirty look. I LOVE it!
If you want to see me make it....click here.
Enjoy!

Tiggy, I love Herbaceous's new look. So subtle and pretty in an almost etherial way ~ I can almost see elves peeping out at me! I can appreciate how much work has gone into the making too.

Lemonade Lounger looks like a lovely slab of conglomerate rock has been cut and polished ~ awesome! :)
