Now available from my futureprimitive online store and on my etsy are the first 2 organic 6oz soap chunks.
i am using 'no. 11' already! very nice 'tis too. a blend of juniper, black pepper, cedarwood, ho wood and patchouli.
A creamy bar with a thick lather and a subtle woody scent. the notes of black pepper stand out, as does the juniper...in fact all of the essential oils come up trumps in a 'one by one' kinda way.
The patchouli works in the way it should....it doesn't actually smell like itself in this blend...more of a deep tone that mellows, than a full on hippy scent.
the other is 'floral marquee', which i was going to name 'pelargonium parfait'. I changed my thinking cap and floral marquee is way more fitting. it's what the scent combo reminded me of after a week of thought.
After having worked at the RHS Malvern Spring Gardening Show (in the floral marquee) on many an occasion, I remember the heady rush of floral scents that hit my nasal passages as soon as I entered the doorway...a very pleasing aroma!

I have a busy old week this week, then next week I'm on hols. Supposed to visit cornwall but it looks like i may be busy coming up with new ideas for new soaps. This evening however, I have soapers block!
