New Products and new packaging.

Since being made redundant I have re-found my enthusiasm for soap making. Whether that is because life is a little less stressful (as long as money is taken out of the equation), or because the weather is good, or because I have the time to play I don't know, but I am having fun.

There are two new soaps on the curing rack and another on its way. The first of the two soon to be ready, is a soap specially designed for the gardeners among you. Fragranced with a beautiful blend of Lavender and Clary Sage essential oils, it has nettle powder for a touch of colour, and poppy seeds for exfoliation. This blend is becoming a firm favourite here, not too floral or herby, but a lovely light scent.

The second soap is Bergamot and Green Tea, seen on the left in the photo. This soap set up really quickly and the depth of colour really surprised me.

Soap packaging has had a revamp. The boxes will be made of plain, coloured card and labels will be in a neutral colour.

There is a new Liquid Soap fragrance. Orange and Pettigrain has joined the party and they have all had new labels too.

I am very happy with the way all the packaging is finally coming together in a more co-ordinated way and hopefully it will not be long before there are new style labels for all the products.
