Random Beauty In Soap

I love good lighting in soap photography. Natural lighting is what catches my eye, so I found some today that I share for no other reason than the sheer beauty...

Cinnamon Almond Soap by Amber's Ambry
Amber Reddinger makes beautiful soap, knitting projects, creates garbage into
household and garden art, gardens, plays banjo and is the ultimate house magic mama.


And then I found this gorgeous soap.... holy moly:

So very whimsical. Check out her blog; The soaps are very beautiful...


BLOWING BUBBLES Handmade Cold Process Soap

"A fruity berry combination of strawberry, blackberry and wild huckleberries touched with a hint of pineapple and soft rose on a sweet caramel bottom. This scent is a mouthwatering treat with berry notes that explode into the sweet realm of fun! "

This looks amazingly sweet, bright and fun! I've been an admirer of Beacon Creations for about a year since I discovered her shop. I'll have to purchase a soap when I get through the ones I have! :)


15% OFF Sheep's Milk & Lavender

"Macadamia nut butter, sweet almond oil and avocado butter deeply moisturize the skin while calendula infused olive oil and raw sheep's milk acts to calm and sooth. Lavender essential oil has been used to moisturize skin as well as aid in the healing of scar tissue. The sheep's milk was hand milked (by me) on a small farm in central Minnesota."
I love Dennise's photography!


15% off BUBBLY GRAPE  natural handmade, cold process soap, vegan friendly
"This candy scent reminisces of sweet and juicy grape soda. The dark purple color comes
from alkanet root, a traditional natural herbal dye"


Vanilla Dream soap bar - 4 oz
"Enjoy the sweet comfort of rich vanilla..Instantly it evokes a sense of tranquility."


NEW - HUNTING CAMP Deep Exfoliating Soap
"made with pumice, sandalwood exfoliating powder, frankincense powder, spikenard powder and moisturizing natural oils. Just right for the sink at your North Woods cabin—but looks and works great at home too. HUNTING CAMP has a deep sandalwood fragrance and is slate black in color, from the addition of activated charcoal, which naturally lifts toxins from the skin"

Great pictures ! I stare and stare and stare trying to figure out HOW ON GODS BUBBLY EARTH DID THEY DO THAT ?!?!?

And to make life even better I recently traded soap with Denise and actually have one of those sheep milk soaps in my shower, Fabulous on skin and HAIR. My Grandaughter got some fun looks from her 2nd gr teacher when she told her I washed her hair with sheep milk. :)

Aw, thanks Jo! I am absolutely honored to be in such gorgeous company!!!
