I’m hard at work today on the projects for the Martha Stewart Radio Show tomorrow. They’ve requested me back on as a guest to talk about Valentine’s Day Projects. We’ll be talking about the Rose Bath Fizzies (here), a new melt and pour project that I’ll be posting on Friday and the Champagne Face Mask (here). I’m dragging a bit though. It’s been an exhilarating, thrilling week with our site launch, Congressman Larsen’s visit (here) and fragrance planning (coming soon? Toasted Rice/Quinoa fragrance and an upgraded candle line that’s skin safe). I’m losing focus. So I looked for awesome handmade soaps to get me back on track today. They totally did the trick.

Your Morning Cup of Coffee Exfoliating Soap with Olive Oil and Cocoa Butter
(Could this get any better? Yum! It’s ideal for the great Pacific Northwest, home of Starbucks and the $4 latte)
Shari is the Creator of PureHeart Soaps. She uses natural pigments, essential oils and her creative genes from her Mother to create her magnificent soaps.
Visit Shari’s website www.pureheartsoap.com.Barnyard Soaps (Way too cute! And, speaking from experience, I know how difficult it is to do melt and pour dioramas. These are superb.)
Since 2005, Jennifer has owned and operated this fabulous soap company. I appreciate her green living philosophy, her use of bright colors and unique ideas. Every bar starts with 60% unrefined olive oil, organic palm and coconut oil and the rest is pure inspiration.
Power to the Peeps Gourmet Soap
(These chicks make me ready for Spring and the yummy marshemallow Peeps that come with the turning of the season.)
Their soaps and body product look divine and their labeling is professional and eye catching. Jed is the owner of the company and says “Our Cranberry Almond smells freakin’ awesome. It’s sweet, spicy and exfoliating.” This made me laugh and instantly crave a Cranberry Almond bar.
I hope these soapy inspirations get you pepped up and inspired for your own stellar creations.
