Mar Bar


I present a new recipe. I liiikey, folks. I may have to work with it time after time, but I jammed a whole lot of yummies in there and I feel darn good about that. No filler oils. Goodens. Sadly, I spaced and left out the scent. Not such a bad thing. It looks virgin like anyway in the natural light of my shop window.

I introduce the Mar Bar, except I haven't cut them into bars yet. Still, I am coining it. My Mar. See the chair they rest on while I photograph it? You could be sitting there and chatting with me in my shop. It can be THAT peaceful in here when I am not running around formulating.

I'm pretty sure I'm starting to realize that my goal is to open up my own shop. I can't stop thinking about it.

It's my dream to one day sit in that chair and chat with you at your chop (and run up the credit card with your lovely goods and fill up the luggage so dh will wonder why the darn thing all of a sudden weighs 20 pounds more than at the start of our vacation)! In the meantime, I'll just enjoy your lovely soaps here...

That looks fantastic Joanna! I love how pure it looks and then the star anise to top it off. Its virginal, but naked at the same time since its sans scent :D (That probably sounds weird.) So, what exactly went into it?

Gorgeous soap and gorgeous photo! The light is just so perfect.

I can't wait to come to Florida for a vacation and sit and chat in your shop. Give me another year or two... ;)

Hi, I am a soapmaker who lives in the Caribbean. I know how to make a great swirl soap and all, but I have been wanting to learn how to make soap that looks wavy/like icening at the top. How is that done exactly. Are there any books/tuturials on how to do this.

By the way, your soap looks gorgoues.
