Facebook Photo of the Week (May 3rd ~ May 9th)
This week we kicked off a series of sales and promotions that will continue into next week. Be sure to keep your eyes on the blog and the Bramble Berry Facebook page for the coupon codes. If you’d like to be the first to know about sales and specials in advance, sign up for the Newsletter. Newsletter subscribers were given advance notice of coupons and the schedule for coupon release.
Paired perfectly with the promotions is a collection of soothing, floral-themed projects. The Rose Water Lotion tutorial uses rose water to give the lotion a light, rosey scent. If you have never made lotion before, it’s a great recipe to get started. The recipe also includes Chamomile Extract, which helps to calm the skin and reduce redness. If you are curious about extracts, the Sunday Night Spotlight: Extracts explains what they are, their special properties and how to use them.
The Lavender and Chamomile Goat Milk Bath Tea is another great project for the beginning crafter, and it’s the perfect way to unwind after a long day. If you are looking for more bath time additives, the Soothing Bath Soak with Oat and Lavender is made with Aloe Extract and Colloidal Oatmeal, making it great for dry skin. If you are scrambling for a last minute gift for mom, our Mother’s Day Bath Tea can be made in no time!
Our Facebook Photo of the Week was also inspired by flora! Made by Evie Soap, this beautiful cream and aqua swirled soap is scented with the Gardenia Fragrance Oil. If you’d like to learn more about Evie and her soaping journey, you can read her inspirational interview here. Not only is this soap lovely, but Evie’s photography really makes it pop. If you’re looking for ways to improve your soap photography, this blog post has a few tips.
Evie’s soaps are full of bright colors, texture and beautiful swirls. Shown above (left to right, clockwise) is a collection of cold process, Snuggle Up Soap, Sexy Bloom Soap, and the Crisp Apple Rose Soap. Topped with rose petals, the Crisp Apple Rose Soap would make a great Mother’s Day gift.
Post pictures of your crafty creations on the Facebook page each week for a chance to be featured on the Soap Queen blog and receive a sweet soapy package from Bramble Berry. Photos are chosen based on consensus from the Bramble Berry staff, so the best way to increase your chances of winning is to show us lots of photos!
