This week has been quite the whirlwind, hasn’t it? The team and I filmed Soap Queen TV videos on Friday. It’s always a fun, but long day. We filmed three videos, including melt and pour, bath bombs and a cold process recipe. I can’t wait to share them with you! What kind of Soap Queen TV videos would you like to see in the future?
Next week , get ready for more dessert-inspired projects using fragrance oils from the limited edition Seasonal Sweets Fragrance Oil Collection. The collection will be gone after the 18th, so don’t miss out on the chance to save on these amazing fragrances! If you missed out on the live introduction on Facebook this week, check out the video below. =)

Speaking of Pure Soapmaking, did you catch the latest Soap Queen TV video? In the video, I share the Annatto-Yarrow with Embeds Soap. It is a more challenging recipe that results in a totally unique looking bar.

- I love, love, love kale. Before the kale craze in 2013, Pizza Hut was the largest consumer of kale. But they didn’t put it on pizza!
