You just know you're in the right job when you wake up in the morning, excited to practise your craft. Warren and I have long been fascinated by the patterns that arise when different tools and methods are applied to soap making. Like glass blowers, we're working with a liquid medium that will later set hard. It's a thrill to capture the beautiful liquid movements of the soap as it makes its way across the whole area of the mould.
A little while back we were asked to prepare a custom soap for a Mother's Day Promotion, to be held at the Cellar Door Cafe. All the Mums were thrilled to find little brown paper packages tied with pink ribbon on their tables when they arrived - filled with Lemon, Lavender and Mint Soap and matching organic lip balm. Nathan and Sarah at the Cellar Door Cafe have told us that their customers have come back looking for the same bars, so we've decided to add them to our regular line.
Another of our wholesale customers, Steff Kennett at Cosmic Jam in Robe, South Australia has also asked us whether we could make this one with goat's milk. We've done just that Steff! Lavender, Lemon and Mint bars are scented with essential oils - no synthetic fragrance. They are coloured with pigments - no dyes are used in Washpool Farm soap. These bars are formulated to be gentle for customers with normal skin. Washpool Farm also makes a wide range of bars for people with allergies and skin sensitivity. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs. Lavender, Lemon and Mint will be available on the website as soon as it has cured - approximately four weeks.
