We had a fun field day at Otion with a reporter (stay tuned for our October 14th story about Otion). Erik and I taught her the basics of melt and pour. If you’ve never made melt and pour soap, check out our instructional here.
Here are some photos of our creations. The above photo is done with the Aloha Molds Plumeria mold (which has been discontinued), orange and coral mica and Cellini Blue and Stormy Blue Mica. We used our ever-popular Energy Fragrance Oil for a positively uplifting tropical vacation feel.
Erik and I also started our Halloween display for the store. Check out our use of Vintage Gray Mica and Silver Glitter (discontinued) in our fun Skull Mold. The soap is ghoulish, kid-pleasing and scented with anise essential oil.
It was a trip to Hawaii where I discovered the beautiful plumeria. I purchased several plants and have many colors growing. Time to bring them in for winter soon. Definitely a scent I cannot live without.
Plumeria is a super popular fragrance during summer months at BB- probably because we’re all longing for some sun and Hawaii!
I LOVE THAT MOLD!! Plumeria is my favorite. Its the number 1 FO I use in my soap and lotion. Its also growing in a pot in my backyard. LOL
