  • of the oils that should remain in the soap are driven off seeping out through the bottom of the mould and the soap is ruined with gaping holes left in it Not very appealing So the perfect method took three attempts to evolve and we still make this very special soap only in small batches just 12 bars at a time as it is easier to control the heat this way The smell of the finished soap is amazing and worth all the effort The milk gives the soap its nutty caramel colour and sweet warm scent slightly reminiscent of toffee and the kitchen after baking To complete the fragrancing of Just Kiddin Sweet Orange essential oil is added plus a swirl of golden calendula petals within and on the top One of my favourites there s a bar of it in the shower at the moment Anne Posted by Anne Jones at 20 16 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels handmade soap Just Kiddin products soap for sale wholesale soap wrapped soap Newer Posts Older Posts Home Subscribe to Posts Atom Product Catalogue Product Articles Coffee Soap Dave s Soap

  • Soaps are some of the first soaps that we developed however they have proved to be a very popular family of soaps based on Rosy theme Geranium Rose is the base fragrancy however our bars gain much of their appeal and aroma from the rose petals and buds which are incorporated Rosy Swirl The gentle swirls of pink Rose Madder power gives a natural soft rose colour to the white of the natural soap We roll the freshly made round bars in a bed of rose petals to enhance the colours and fragrances These Rosy Swirls have just been cut and are now ready for decorating The round bars are also very popular with our retailers who have made gift sets and hampers included our Rosy Swirls Rose Petal Top Rose petals are pressed liberally onto the crisp white rose scented soap loaves after they have been removed from the mould but before cutting into individual bars Cutting with the petals produces random grooves on the surface of the cut as some petals are dragged down through the soap with the blade This was unforeseen but quite attractive visually making every bar slightly different Rosebud Layer Rose Buds are inserted into the top of the layered loaf making delightful gifts Posted by Christian Langlois at 18 30 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels handmade soap products Rose Bud Layer Rose Petal Top Rosy Swirl soap for sale wholesale soap Wednesday 16 February 2011 How to make Lavender Soap Colne Soap Makers Make your Own Soap at Home This is something we filmed over nine months ago when we were developing our soap it s been edited so it condenses How to make Soap in less than 10 minutes For some reason I didn t release it at the time and didn t even include a recipe durh I just found it again here it is I will find a good starter recipe in the next couple of days so you could make your own soap at home I hope you find it interesting It s a typical BBC Blue Peter How you could do it home with fruit juice moulds but I hope you find it interesting BTW We don t quite do it like this any more and have purpose built moulds but you ll get the gist Posted by Christian Langlois at 23 59 0 comments Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels making soap video Tuesday 15 February 2011 Moroccan Moon with Coffee Honey and benzoine give this tan specimen a rich nutty caramel fragrance A sprinkling of dried coffee provides two dark layers and soft exfoliating characteristics to the soap It has been poured in three layers and scalloped on the top surface It also combines a tube of pure Colne Bar to make a moon affect set above a Moroccan landscape with a little bit of imagination and squinting you

  • quite liked the recipe 550 BC for soap containing ashes cypress oil and sesame seed oil for washing the stones for the servant girls It must have made the lives of those hardworking young women a lot easier The ashes provided the alkali necessary to saponify the oils to make soap Wood ash was and still is the alkali most readily available for the production of handmade soap hand made of necessity by homesteaders in the wild west and elsewhere and still today in countries with lower levels of material well being Tallow or other animal fats were used by homesteaders however in places where vegetable oils can be economically extracted these might be used too I ve recently read about some new soap recycling schemes aimed at the less economically developed parts of the world This is one of them http www cleantheworld org but perhaps there are other interventions that could be effective in helping control disease and wouldn t involve energy expended in mechanically re processing and transporting used bits of soap thousands of miles Making soap by hand involves very little energy and is something people have done for millennia I note however that there are significant tax benefits for the US hotels participating in this scheme So oil and alkali and the beginnings of soap in Ancient Babylon There is a soap museum in Sidon in Lebanon part of the Ancient Babylonion empire http www itnsource com shotlist RTV 2010 03 15 RTV649210 v 1 a 0 Searching around all the sources on this I found the old as olives quote which I like very much Here it is in full Soap industry on the Lebanese coast is as old as olives The age of olives extending in the area from Palestine towards the Lebanese

  • ready Christian s Volcanic Lava Swirl came a close second sweet orange oil again but this time mixed with geranium oil a lovely combination Lots of things noted from people s comments and suggestions for the next range clove cinnamon and orange for winter will be a definite I think Lavender was popular and we also gave out samples of Dave s Soap with nothing in it to several people who need to use very pure soap on their skin We offered hand washing opportunities on a small table in the gazebo a chance to wash off the ice cream and candy floss and try different types of soap There were several children with extremely clean hands that afternoon having made extensive use of this facility Friends children were however very useful for running errands Charlie kindly ran home to re fill our water container and Tilly left us a cuddly lamb for company The gazebo provided a shelter for some of the visiting grandmas too Our stall was right on the front of the quay offering unrivalled views of the duck race blindfold canoeing and visiting barges and smacks The ladies we accumulated over the course of the afternoon therefore had a shady place to sit in our very comfy fold up chairs and they didn t miss a thing we might do them a nice cup of tea next time Maz s mum down from the North for her very first Regatta Well I liked your stall but I ve really enjoyed just sitting here these last couple of hours she said as she made her way off to check if she d won the lucky programme draw Look out for some of Christian s photos of Regatta day and the River Colne coming soon Posted by Anne
