On The Rack and Other News

It seems this time of year finds me frantically replenishing my soap stock and this year is no different.

I sold out of the always popular Lavender Meringue at the holiday bazaar I participated in a couple weeks ago. I even have a couple back orders for it. Thankfully, I was able to make more and it should be fully cured and ready to ship next week!

Lavender Meringue is coveted not only for it's tantalizing scent (only essential oils are used to scent all Lora's Beauty soaps; never any fragrance oils) but also for the all-natural ingredients that go into it including a rich, moisturizing head of shea butter rich soap (aka the meringue.)

Also running low, but not completely out, is the very fragrant Honey Safflower bar. I've made this bar of soap from the very beginnings of Lora's Beauty without much change. Sometimes you get things right the first time!

And because I was in the soap making mood this past weekend, I made a new bar; Oatmeal Calendula. I plan to replace the Oatmeal Ginger with this bar.

Since colloidal oatmeal is added to both bars I decided that my oatmeal bar should be over-the-top skin healthy! So instead of ginger, I added calendula petals and instead of scenting it with cassia essential oil, I used spearmint and eucalyptus essential oils! If you have sensitive skin, this is the goats' milk bar for you!

Lora's Beauty is currently stocked with plenty of fine, crafted bars of goats' milk soap and these bars on the curing rack will be available next week, in time for holiday shipping!

Lora's Beauty ships free in the US on all orders over $30!

If you want to smell and handle the soap yourself before purchasing, I will be at the Madeleine Marketplace on Thursday December 6 from 2pm - 8pm. The address is 3123 NE 24th Avenue in Portland, Oregon. Stop by and say "hi", there's a free gift in it for you if you mention my blog, while supplies last.

I may be bias, but I can't think of a better gift for that hard to shop for person than a luxurious bar of goats' milk soap!
