While we wait for our last very interesting batch of soap to cure - and I really can't wait to unmold it to see what it looks and smells like, since there's ginger involved! - Eric and I decided to try something new tonight.
It's a success, I think.
We have made our very first sugar scrub! It's brown sugar and oils, together with cocoa and some other spices to make it smell just heavenly! (So it's vegan-friendly.)
Halloween in December, a fundraiser for the family of Isaac Bonewits, a noted author and teacher who is fighting cancer and as a result has a lot of bills to pay. Eric and I would have been attending anyway, but now we're donating a gift basket to the fundraiser's silent auction. Plus, we'll be vending, selling our products and donating a portion of the proceeds back to the fundraiser as well.
Please note that the container in the photo is the one that will be used for this initial batch of sugar scrubs only; it will not be the jar that will appear on the website. This is a glass container, and because we are concerned for your safety in the bath, future scrubs will be available in a clear plastic jar with a white lid.
Eric and I both tested the scrub tonight, and then washed our hands with our Oatmeal Honey soap. Even after washing, our hands were notably moisturized and softer. We're so excited that it worked!
