Christmas Gift Sets

Are you looking for a nice personal gift for Christmas? Look no further! I created a little gift set that has my latest soaps, new bath bombs and sugar cubes.
Bath Bombs are great if you want to take a relaxing bath and enjoy the pleasant aroma. Fragrance or essential oils can be custom made to suit your taste and preferences.
Nice thing about Sugar Cubes is that they are absolutely mess free. You can keep them outside of your shower and just grab one cube and use it right away. I add a little bit of Shea butter to nourish the skin, but they don’t feel that greasy feeling as other sugar scrubs do.

Why Goat Milk?

I have a lot of questions from people - why do you use goat milk? Why is it so good for your skin? What makes it so special?

Well, to answer these questions I need to explain what the goat milk does for the skin, and what the benefits are.

Milk soaps in general are more creamier bars and contain whey protein and lactic acid. I'm sure you've all heard about Cleopatra, and her legendary beauty secret - milk and honey baths. Honey is a great antiseptic and milk helps to moisturize and soften the skin.

However, not all milk is the same, though, and when it comes to making natural skin care treatments goats milk has several unique properties that give it the edge over cow's milk.

First, goat milk has better moisturizing abilities due to the nature of its fat and protein structures. If you've ever smelled goat milk that was old or improperly processed, you know it has a very distinctive odor. (Properly processed goat milk does not smell any different from cow's milk, by the way.) The unique odor comes from the significantly larger amounts of three medium-chain fatty acids, known as capric, caprylic and caproic acid.

Because goat milk has a much larger number of these smaller fat molecules, it is more readily absorbed by the skin. Goats milk protein structures are also shorter than those of cow's milk. The increased accessibility of the fat and protein from goat milk helps leave skin smooth and supple.

Finally goat milk is rich in vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant and is important to maintaining skin health. Goat milk provides up to 47% more vitamin A than cow's milk. Furthermore, goat milk contains vitamin A in its final form--ready to use--while cow's milk contains the precursor form, beta-carotene, which our bodies must then convert to vitamin A.

We went pro

It is official - we are in the business :-)

I just got registered with the state as EZ Soaps, LLC. It looks simple, but I'm sure there are some things that are not obvious to me yet. I'm working on purchasing insurance, setting up with the state, thinking how am I going to sell my soap. Thousands thoughts are running through my head. But I'm excited, soapmaking is fun and I enjoy doing it. There are a lot of things to do yet, and I'm at a very beginning. Hopefully, it is going to be fun and interesting journey in my life.

New Soaps

We were playing with soaps all past week, and here what we’ve created:
Organic Goat Milk Soap, smells amazing! I can't wait to try it!

Beer Soap.. Yep, you heard it right, it is made with a real Leinenkugel Beer. All in all I live in Chippewa Falls - home of Leines :-)

Organic Tea Soap (all herbs came from my garden).

Red Wine Soap. I was just curious after the beer soap, my mind went "what if" road...

Organic Calendula and Honey Soap. It has real honey in the recipe, and it suppose to be bubbly.

I'm home...

I’m finally home … for another 24 hours … tomorrow I’m heading to Chicago for another interview … Busy!

KDV Internship had been a great experience. What a wonderful people work there, I enjoyed every single day! It was amazing how interesting and challenging it was. Some days I just couldn’t wrap my head around the client’s situation, but all other friendly staff would help me, or just guide me in the right direction. I can’t even count how many “aha” moments I’ve had in the past three months. I’m just so satisfied with my experience, and I know for sure that public accounting is where I want to be. I’m also thinking about law school in the future, that would be interesting too, but we’ll see…

New soap… Wayne and I just made a batch of the Tea Soap. But you’ll have to wait for the pictures. He was bugging me to make soap with him so much; he was like a kid literally! But it is so fun to work with him, I really enjoy that I can share this wonderful hobby with him!

New Orders Coming Through...

Well, I guess I'm up and rolling!

Geraldine, my wonderful host mom, asked if I could make 10 bars for her and 35 bars for Ashley. At first I was a little bit worried - my first order, is it going to be easy, are bars going to turn out ok, what if I'll screw up? Millions and millions questions run through my head.

But than I started to put the recipe together, what color I want, what smell, what design, and it just came out naturally - orange and lavender for her, and some whimsical swirls for Ashley... and here they are:
Finished look for Ashley's soap - all princesses, buterflies and cute flowers are soooooo pretty!!!

New soaps, news and more.

Yes, I was bad... I didn't update my blog for a very long time. Between school, work and occasional soap making, I didn't have any free time to sit down and write something. Well, I'm currently an intern in St. Cloud, MN. I work at KDV and I absolutely love it here! Except the weather, this is even worse than Chippewa Falls, WI. I know for fact, that I was born to live in a wormer climate, somewhere closer to the ocean... I hope to find more time and write about my new job and new people that I've met. But for now, here are some of my new soaps:

Ginger Pear with Walnut Seeds:

Chai Tea with Semolina & Cocoa:

Cherry Coconut with Poppy Seed:

Honey Oatmeal with Cocoa:

Hot Chocolate with Coffee Suds:

Minty Christmas:

And... my recent fail: (Forgot to put Olive oil... oooooopsy)
