Ruby (that’s her, in the middle) had her birthday party at Otion. She just turned 12 years old and judging from the peals of laughter and the giggles of delight, enjoyed her birthday party at Otion. Her dad even got in on the action for a bit, helping to pick out a few colors. Just a few of their creations are in the top picture. They turned out great! Can you believe they had never made soap before!?
While the girls were having fun at the soap bar under the careful tutelage of the ELFman, I was upstairs in the Otion Testing Lab making bath fizzies, fresh lotion and sugar scrub (all in the effervescent Cranberry Fig fragrance). All of the recipes turned out lovely and the lotion, with the addition of hydrolyzed oats and liquid silk, is positively over the top smooth. Between the energy of the soap bar partiers and the fun of creating handmade goodies, it was a jubilient Saturday.
