Happy New Year!

Hello all my lovely friend!

This year will see some wonderful changes.  I'm trying some new shows.  Our first of the season will be:

Dover Days, Dover, DE

So, looking forward to that show.  Slowly getting stock ready.  

We now have an abundant supply of Unscented Coconut Soap, which was one of our biggest sellers last season.  Currently curing is GOAT MILK CASTILE!  Isn't that an awesome idea?
Current Project

Working on homemade laundry detergent AND Shampoo!

I've tried several recipes I found online using Fels Naptha, Borax and Washing Soda. 

In the last 6 months I've had to THROW OUT ALL my face cloths, t-shirts, hand towels and bath towels!  Why do you ask?  

1) EVERYTHING repelled water.  The water beaded off.  Couldn't dry off, wipe up spills or dry hands.  YUCK!  

2) Grey, dingy whites.  No amount of bleach could help. It actually caused the t-shirts to shred!  

WASTE of money, time and resources; but it'll save YOU money from my trial and errors!

Working on liquid shampoo using Molasses Stout and Silk with Chamomile & Rose Water.  Just waiting for them to cure before I start the arduous process of making an awesome shampoo!  

I promise to keep you updated to my adventures!
