What do you think?

I've changed the look of my Juice Bar, why? I've no idea, just felt like it could do with a bit of a change. I've also added Sea Buckthorn Berry oil, which not only adds to the colour but is wonderful for your skin and fresh cream which also makes it extra special, but I'm just not sure if I should change its name as well.

I'd better tell you what other goodies are normally in the Juice Bar:) it's made with Organic Carrot Juice and contains olive, coconut & rice bran oils, cocoa and shea butters and carrot oil and now the Sea Buckthorn berry oil and makes a wonderful facial bar.

I was sort of thinking maybe, Carrots & Cream Facial Bar?? or does that sound silly? I'd love to know your thoughts, keep the same name of change it? or if you have a better idea, I'd love to hear that as well:)

This is what it used to look like, so please don't tell me you like this one better:) Well OK, would like to know that too, I can always change it back again next time:)

Tickled Pink!!

I just wanted to say a great big heartfelt thank you to lovely Jen from Jenora Soaps, for doing a post about one of my soaps. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to do a soap swap with Jen and I had been waiting on tenterhooks in the hope that she would like them.

You know the feeling when you give someone special a present and you have no idea if they will like it or not, until they open it. You really want them to like it, but that doesn't mean they will and you wait with butterflies in the hope that they will.

People have very different tastes when it comes to handmade soap, I think some are naturally drawn to ones made with essential oils and others prefer fragrance oils, some like lots of big bubbles and others like creamy soaps, what one person loves, another might dislike.

Jen is a very busy lady and a very talented soapmaker, so knowing that she liked one of my soaps and took time to write about it means a great deal to me, thank you so much Jen:)

You can see Jen's post about Lemon & Lime Loofah Bar on her blog Jenora Soaps.

Lavender & Mint

A new batch of Lavender and Mint is now ready, coloured with natural alkanet and green clay, and fragranced with the pure essential oils of lavender, peppermint and spearmint, it has a lovely fresh, uplifting aroma, really nice for cooling down on hot, steamy days, sorry to anyone who is now having cool weather, I'd gladly trade you anyday, the humid Mackay weather can be a bit hard to take sometimes:)

Long overdue!

I must apologize for being away from my blog for so long, BUT I've been really busy and had a lot going on, thank you so much to the lovely ladies enquiring if I was OK, you don't know how much it means to me knowing that I've actually been missed:)

I've been away on holidays to beautiful Port Macquarie and had a totally relaxing time while my hubby was out playing his beloved golf. Here's a view from our unit.

I've done a couple of soap swaps with some very lovely ladies from way over the other side of the ocean, I'm still waiting on one and can't wait till the parcel arrives, it's so exciting!! thank you ladies, I'll be sharing a bit more about these in the coming weeks:)
I've been making a few new soaps, here's one of them, not too bad if I must say so:)
and bringing back some old ones. Cedarwood and Spice is now back in stock for the people who have been chasing it:) Sorry the photo isn't great, I think I need some lessions from Jen!

I'll try not to leave it so long next time, I sure have a lot of catching up to do:)
