Spring time soaps

Spring will be coming soon or maybe it's already here....I'm not quite sure yet.  I enjoyed a beautiful weekend with temperatures in the 70s and woke up to snow and temperatures in the teens on Monday morning.  But with daffodils and hyacinths popping up and Easter only a few days away, this girl's fancy has turned to spring time soaps.  Here are a few that will be at the upcoming market here in Monroe and listed soon in my Zibbet shop.

A new fragrance in my line-up, but I'm certain it will be well-received.  And I'm already looking forward to making another batch, because it soaped beautifully!
Cucumber Melon
I was getting requests for this scent way back in February!  This spring's batch came out just as I'd pictured it in my mind.
Honeysuckle



It's a rare, sad day that I don't have this soap in stock--Lemon Poppyseed Scrub.  I'm glad other people like it as much as I do.  I add a bit of rosemary essential oil with the lemon scent to give it a little bit of zest.

 I use poppyseeds, cornmeal and oatmeal to make it good and scrubby!

And for one more--I call this one South Pacific.  It's a fresh, clean, soapy scent that many guys like, especially my Mister.  As you may have guessed, I thought my first version, a simple blue soap with some white swirls, was a little bland, so I gave it a much more beautiful existence in a new white and aqua batch.

Happiness is spring soaping.  And spring just wouldn't be right without fresh floral and fruity scents after the cozy, rich winter scents.  Do you have a favorite spring scent?

  1. Really beautiful spring set up. The colours in the first soap are gorgeous, what are they? Honeysuckle colour combo is also very nice. Actually, they all are beautiful, but the first one got me with its colours!
    I'm one of those who like a scent or don't like it. When I like it, I don't mind using it all year round, as long as I don't get fed up with it. But, the things change when it comes to perfumes, I make a difference between summer and winter fragrances.

    1. Thanks, Diva! I used Brambleberry colors--a combination of tangerine and fuschia wows for the orange and hydrated chrome green/titanium dioxide for the green.

    1. You must try honeysuckle, and I'll give hydrangea a try! I don't think I've ever smelled the fresh hydrangea flower, now that I think about it.

  5. Happy spring Amy! What a great lineup for springtime! I love your honeysuckle soap, it's fun and makes me think of picnics in the park. Rosemary and lemon, I'd be tempted to take a bite out of that one. :)

    I haven't thought that much about winter scents being rich and cozy but that totally makes sense. I like anything fruity and that to me is always spring/summer-like.

  6. Beautiful spring soaps, Amy! I especially like the bright colors in Cucumber Melon. The embeds in South Pacific look great, too. Lemon Poppyseed looks and sounds wonderful, and I love honeysuckle. Those are all perfect spring scents.

  7. Love your Spring range Amy! Melon and cucumber is one of my (many!) favourite FO's, and I really like the vibrant colours you've used.
    The honeysuckle design is beautiful - did you find the FO accelerated trace? I'm so wary of trying floral FO's because of their tendency to speed things up, but I'm itching to do it - there are so many gorgeous florals I want to soap with!!
