Here is Otion‘s latest Springtime Inspiration display.
The theme is Jojoba Beads and spring. Jess, the director for the project, said this about her vision: “Since we’re a small store, we’re limited in floor space and therefore display space. I used the small mini molds so they wouldn’t crowd with the full bottles of jojoba beads. I especially liked suspending the jojoba beads in the suspending liquid soap base. It’s like a magic that they stay up there!”
One of the things that Jess was most surprised about was how cool in temperature the melt and pour soap needed to be. Since the jojoba beads are a wax, the hot melt and pour soap can easily turn them into liquid. Jess waited until the soap was getting ready to set up before she added the jojoba beads. In the top photo, the green leaf soap on the right, shows what happens when the jojoba beads melt. The soap turned a luscious green but has no in-tact jojoba beads for scrubbing. While it’s a nice color, you could achieve the same color with our Shamrock Green mica for less money.
I’ve only tried jojoba beads in CP soap and they did great but when my soap when through a super hot gel phase (I added honey) a few of them melted so the temp thing is a factor in cp as well.
Thanks for the heads up! I have it fixed now. =)

Anne-Marie, just wanted to let you know that your Otion link (right under the photos) is misspelled (otionsoaps instead of otionsoap) and brought me to a totally weird page. 🙂
