Herbal Soap Recipe from Mountain Rose Herb

Have you ever made handmade liquid soap before?  The closest I came to making liquid soap was taking a class at The Nova Studio, but I have never tried to do it on my own.  But I have found this recipe from Mountain Rose Herb called Theives Herbal Soap that really looks tempting.

Easter Egg Hunt Candles

Can you believe that Easter is Sunday?  Time flew by so fast.  But this weekend there will be a lot of Easter Egg Hunts around the country.  Brambleberry is having their own Easter Egg Hunt by creating these adorable Easter Egg Hunt Candles. It maybe too late to create these candles for this year's egg hunt but keep this in your mind for next year.  But if you cannot wait you can make them for a different occasion.

Carnation Cube Cuties Melt and Pour Tutorial

Along time ago I took a class at The Nova Studio to learn how to make single use sugar scrubs from Erin Pikor. When I saw this melt and pour tutorial on how to make Carnation Cube Cuties I thought of Erin's sugar scrub recipe.

This project is great for beginners and a great way to build some melt and pour soap skills. It requires you to keep your eye on the temperature of your soap because you do not want to melt the delicate jojoba beads or break the smooth layers.
