I’ve got quite a few supplies coming this week for the projects I’m raring to get started on. I had one delivery today, and I’m waiting on two more – fragrance oils and general supplies.
Here are the projects that I have planned over the next few weeks:
- Mermaid Bath Bomb
I wanted to make a bath bomb inspired by Lush’s Big Blue. It won’t be the same scent or the same colour, but it will have sea salt and dried seaweed inside. I’m still waiting on the citric acid and fragrance before I can make a test bath bomb.
- Rosey Rose Bath Bomb
I’ve been hankering to make a rose petal filled bath bomb for ages. I don’t know why I haven’t done it sooner, but now, at least, I’ll have the supplies on hand once the citric acid and fragrance oils arrive. I’m scenting this one with a fragrance that smells like pure roses. I can’t wait to test this one.
- Passionfruit Tea Sugar Scrub
I had a passionfruit herbal tea about two weeks ago and I couldn’t get over how wonderful it smelled. I did some research and tea leaves are totally awesome in sugar scrubs. Since I’ve been wanting to add sugar scrubs to my product line, this seems like a perfect starter scrub to do it. I have everything except the preservative which I’ll receive later this week. So looking forward to making this.
- Choc Sugar Bubble Bar (not sure if this is what I’ll name it)
You know I like my bubble bars. I’ve been eyeing off the Lush dupe scents from one of my supplies and finally caved and got the one that smells like Honey I Washed The Kids. I think if I mix that scent with real cocoa, it’ll smell like chocolatey heaven. I’ll let you know.
- Cucumber Melon Body Wash
I’ve had the cucumber melon fragrance for a while now, but haven’t got around to using it yet. Once I get the lovely green colourant I ordered, I’m going to make this into a body wash. It’s more a summer scent than a winter one, which doesn’t make any sense why I’d be adding it now. I just want to. So there’s that.
Other projects I’m waiting to make: whipped soap frosting, face cleansers, shampoo bars, body oils, leave in conditioners. I have no idea if I’ll have time for any of this, but it’s on my wish dream list. So one day.
As for the April soap dot box, I’m going to close off the preorders on the 31st March so I can order the last of the supplies for that. I have most of everything I need, just a few more extra supplies and I can start making those. Hopefully I’ll be able to send them out early.
I’ll update the blog later this week on the results of the Mermaid bath bomb.
P.S. I forgot to get the beetroot powder. Note to self – get this Thursday.
