Calming Calendula

I've made my Calming Calendula soap with goat's milk and infused the oils with organic calendula. Calendula is a wonderful all-around skin treatment, that soothes, heals and helps maintain skin in perfect health so is a great addition to handmade soaps. Fragranced with essential oils of Rose Geranium, Sweet Orange, Lavender and Patchouli it smells warm and inviting. I've taken this photo outside as you can see:) as it seems to be easier for me to get a decent photo there, just wish I could do the same inside lol.

I've been watching the news showing all the heavy snow some of you are getting over there, I hope you are all safe. Thinking of you....

  4. The soaps look so gentle and lovely! I have to agree with Annette. The scent you put together sounds divine. May I add what a straight line you manage to create? That says a lot about your skills and patience!
