The Week in Soap: 26th March ’17 – BATHBOMBS!!!

Yesterday (Saturday) brought the first craft fair of the year, and a lot of last week was spent wrapping and labelling in preparation.  It also saw the first outing for my bathbombs, which are FINALLY available for sale. I’ve been so busy dispatching wholesale orders and restocking the curing shelves that creating labels for my bathbombs was never a priority – until the night before the craft fair 😮  I took just four varieties – Clarity, Serenity, Lavender and Bewitched (was LoveSpell):

I was busy Mon, Tues, Wed evenings this week, so couldn’t make soap until Thursday night, and then realised that I was so low on Olive Oil I could only make a two batches of Boho Baby (fragranced with Patchouli & Orange essential oils):

Friday evening was spent wrapping bathbombs for the fair on Saturday, so I wasn’t able to make more until this evening, but I made up with it with two double batches of Serenity (Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Orange & Lemon essential oils) and Botanica (Lavender, Lemon & Lime essential oils):

I now officially a yellow belt kickboxer!  I went through my first ever grading on Monday evening. I had no idea what to expect and it was intense – I arrived home bruised, exhausted and ravenous, but I absolutely loved it, and I’m ridiculously proud of my yellow belt:

Orange belt, I’m coming for ya!!

  1. The soap and bath bombs look great! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at bath bombs but they seem intimidating.

  2. Hurray for the first show of the year! Mine was this past weekend as well. How did you fare?

    1. It was a bit slower than I would have liked, but I did ok. I only do this one fair, once a month, so it’s nice to get out and chat to people. Hope you did well?

      1. My show was slow as well. I typically don’t do Spring shows and hadn’t done this one in 5 years but a friend of mine wanted to participate so we booked spaces next to each other. It is always wonderful to get out and chat with people and meet new crafters!
