When My Skin Soap Studio blogged about her luxurious soap bar that included Blue Chamomile, Bergamot and Vetiver Essential Oils, I was intrigued. I wouldn’t have the guts to make a soap with Blue Chamomile Essential Oil – it’s $505 per pound!
Tracy was generous and sent me a bar of the soap. It smells deep, musky, sophisticated and unlike anything I’ve smelled before. In addition to the super splurge on the essential oils, she has extra skin-loving oils in the recipe (Avocado, Mango Butter, Babassu, Sesame, Macadamia Nut) to make a well-formulated bar that leaves the skin feeling moist and supple.
As you can see from the photo below, it’s a smooth, even bar of soap. In the shower, it lathers well with a dense bubble structure that washes away cleanly. The smell is heavenly with unique layers of exotic scents bubbling up everywhere.
The little vial (in the top photo) is a bottle of one her exquisite Amber Sambaca. Her all-natural perfume blend is a complex blend of Arabian Jasmine Sambac, Mandarin, fresh Ginger, Orange and Rose absolute with final notes of Vanilla Bean Oleoresin, and Vetiver. It warms on the skin and turns into an entirely different scent after a few hours of wearing.
If you are still stumped on what to get that special someone for Christmas and you’re not making your own goodies, consider getting some of the of the unique and special blends that Tracy designs at My Skin Soap Studio.
