A useful tip from my local Mexican bar/cantina regarding herbs in drinks: http://3dogcantina.com/
Mixologist Tip of the Month:
When muddling fresh herb, be sure not to use too much force. It will bruise the leaves and leave your drink with a bitter after taste. Very true.
My new order arrived today of our favorite scent, Ginger-Lemongrass. My husband and I are delighted to have our own bars now! No more worries as to where my soap went! He sends thanks for the gift lotion and has already tried some…… I snuck a little myself…..fair is fair….lol! I do like the smell of the sample Oatmeal Clove and will buy some next time. Thanks for sending it! I left you positive feedback, but there is never enough space to say truly thank you for such great soap! We are a dedicated Soap Farm family!
Keep up the great work!
This just in: So excited about finally launching "Bamboo Musk". Out of the kitchen it smells better than drafted. Lots of subtle and fresh grassy green hints, musky middle notes and a reed-y wood base. It's richly masculine but also a little romantic. This custom fragrance blend has a lighter side that will work perfectly for spring and younger guys. (I suspect.) Can't wait 'til it's ready for the shelf. You know the deal: 3-4 weeks. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this one. Once again, a men's scent I will want to use.

We are thrilled, okay, maybe even ecstatic to announce after some time our Vintage Enamel Soap Dish returns in red trim and yellow. These sold out months ago and we had them custom ordered just for us. Hugely popular, these reflect the 40's - 50's era colors. You can just imagine them in a farmhouse kitchen or bath. These two colors have been asked for many times over and as they say "Ask and you shall receive." :) Also available online in the store.

We had an awesome Sunday at Patchwork Festival this past weekend despite the intense hot sun. I have the oh so lovely farmers tan to prove it. The weather was goregous with a capital "G" and we especially enjoyed meeting so many soap enthusiasts. (I think I love Long Beach.) If you are one of the people that picked up some SUPERFAT soaps, then we're talking about you. As always at Patchwork shows, lots of truly talented designers there and beautiful works. My space was right next to another amazing children's clothing designer of Little Wellies, some of the most fabulous little girls clothes I've seen anywhere. All in all, a really nice crowd on a great day. Well done Nicole and Delilah. No rest for the weary on to Santa Ana...
Most people don't realize that there are actually different kinds of shea butter on the market found in finished beauty and skin care products as well as raw materials used by crafters and soap makers. The usual response is positive. Everyone knows that shea butter is good, or thinks it is but there's more to the story. Ultrarefined shea butter is the equivalent of sliced white bread or bleached flour; no real health benefits or food value other than its carbs. We only use natural shea butter in our soaps. It costs more but what's tragic about ultrarefined shea butter is that all of the nutrients are zapped from it from bleaching, cleaning and filtering. Core vitamins A, E, and F are lost in this process and while it retains its moisturization properties, the natural healing properties have been diminished and it's likely had added preservatives added to it for this reason. So check your labels and see what your product says about its shea butter, if anything.
