Natural Selections

I have been brewing up essential oils combos like crazy for the past few weeks! I was inspired by a lecture I saw at the HSMG Conference by Robert Tisserand, an expert in aromatherapy, and got to work revisiting my essential oil books and formulating up a storm! My goal is to expand my all natural line of soaps to give customers additional all natural options while still striving for a unique look! Soaps made with essential oils hit your body differently than soaps made with fragrance oils. They have the power to soothe, relax, calm, get you energized, - the benefits are physiological and psychological! Now, I am not dogging fragrance oils. Sometimes I want to wake up to the smell of fresh baked blueberry muffins or strawberry cheesecake, or a soap that smells like a far off place from my childhood that a particular fragrance oils has perfectly captured. Everything has a place. Right now I am mesmerized by essential oils and I hope you enjoy what I have come up with! FYI - I am showing some love to the gentlemen with a new beer soap with orange and spices that the ladies will love too,  and a woodsy spruce combo with a touch of citrus! The beer soap is made and pictured below and the Spruce is in production next week as soon as my larger sizes of the oils arrive!

I hope you enjoy the pics and welcome any suggestions you might have for future all natural soaps!

Natural collection from front to back: Lavender Lime Italian Soda, French Lavender, Lemongrass, Rosemary Mint, Bath Tub Brew
Castile soaps made with 100% olive oil, essential oils, botanicals and clay. I sell these as facial soaps but they are lovely for the whole body! from front to back: Unscented Castile, Tea Tree, Lemon Geranium

New Lavender Lime Italian Soda available at the end of June:
New Bath Tub Brew available at the end of June, made with organic fair trade red palm oil, Stone IPA, and a warm spicy blend of essential oils - ok, it smells like a pumpkin pie!
The newly redesigned Rosemary Mint!


  1. Erin, your soaps are all very nice and also with soft colors for my taste what are some elegant soaps.

  2. They all look and sound amazing! I'll have to get me some during the summer for sure!

  3. Thank you for the comment Dorte!
    Jabonera and Pili - lovely compliments - Thank you!

    I will have two other at the start of July as well - the spruce mentioned above and a Bulgarian lavender with vanilla infused olive oil and cardamom spice! I love that one so much I have been wearing the test vial of that scent as perfume! I am a sucker for the lavender though - Bulgarian lavender is more floral than the french, and blends well with the spicy cardamom and sweet vanilla!

  4. Your soaps are wonderful! I'm a newbie, making soaps for myself and family. I just began making CP. I'd been looking for MP recipes and came upon your terrific site. It's very inspirational to say the least.
