Adventures in Soaping!

Yesterday I ran out of palm oil, which put the brakes on any soap-making for the remainder of the year, since the new tub is not scheduled to be delivered until January 2nd. Instead of creating new soaps like I would have like to have done, I browsed the web to look at all of the lovely suds that my fellow soap-makers from around the globe have posted. One of my favorite soapers is Celine Blacow, of Soaperstar. She hails from Ireland, and her designs are to die for. You can take a gander at her designs on her website: http://www.iamhandmade.com/.
As I perused her site, I realized that all of her recipes are palm-free. I have been one of those people who has always utilized palm in my soaps, so it was hesitant to try it myself. However, today I am going to take a stab at making a good bar of soap that is palm-free. Amanda at Lovin Soap (www.lovinsoap.com) has lots of palm-free recipes that I will start with...keeping my fingers crossed!

Re-stock update

I would like to thank everyone who has supported us this year! As you may have noticed, the Sassy Sundries Facebook page has been fairly silent over the past month or so. The holiday season was so busy that we had to close our Etsy store temporarily. Definitely not a bad problem, but a problem nonetheless.
Our shop will re-open in January, but in the meantime, here are a few tidbits of what we have been designing and creating. Enjoy!


Wet Soap Alert! Kentish Rain

Love Spell in the mold. Ready mid-January.
