Man oh man, does it ever smell good out in Momma Sharon's Studio! I haven't mentioned it, but she's been on a soap making rampage (that explains why I've gotten so much computer time lately). All week long there have been containers of oil, mixing bowls, utensils, and bottles of essential and fragrance oils taking up space on the kitchen counter.
At the recent Saturday morning Blue Ridge Rally Flea Market, we sold soap…LOTS of soap. We sold so much soap that it just about wiped out my Camper Mom's supply! We sent lots and lots of Blue Ridgers on their way with bars from our little 6th Street Soap Company. Squeaky clean campers for sure!!
With the MD DOG and Coastal Caravan coming up, we've got to make sure that our camping buddies have a good supply to choose from. Mom's soap notebook has a whole lot of new recipes to try, so there will be squeaky clean goodness to be shared.
The drying rack in the Studio is now full with 80 bars of luxury that will be curing and drying for the next 6 weeks. If you are wondering what "flavors" she made, take a look at these..
Fireside: a blend of cedarwood, sandalwood, leather, amber, & musk
Dreamsicle: a blend of orange citrus & vanilla
Bergamot & Mandarin: a blend of bergamot & mandarin
Calypso Sun: a blend of mandarin, white peach, & mango
Sweet Luxury Bar: a blend of orange, peppermint, & spearmint
Tangerine & Almond: a blend of tangerine, almond, & orange
Got No Scents: fragrance free
Bayberry & Sage: bayberry essential oil in olive oil with a sage infusion
These eight soaps will be ready by the first of August, just in time for our big trip up to Cunningham Falls State Park in MD for a big Dutch oven gathering with our Chef friends.
The creative juices continue to flow around our part of the camping world and I'll have another Story ready soon to tell you all about it. Thanks for dropping by for my Story Time. Until we meet again, always remember . . .
"Peace, Love, & Squeaky Clean Campers"
