{ Succulent Mocha Soap }

Welcome to October my friends,

When my order for new fragrances (along with some re-stocking of old favorites) arrived I was especially excited about the espresso fragrance oil I purchased; the rich, warm, smooth aroma it bears is a perfect complement to the sweet, dense, familiar scent of dark rich chocolate, which is of my favorite fragrances so far.

What better way to warm yourself than by exalting in a truly delectable blend? The spirit of two beans, which pair so well they dance through cafes across the world, make me wish this soap was edible.

In addition to soap making I am busy formulating recipes for salves, balms and butters to help with winter skin problems. For this I infused mango butter with calendula, oils of avocado, sweet almond and grape seed with lavender and am currently infusing a large batch of grape seed oil with hops. I can’t wait to use these to make wonderfully smooth, emollient concoctions.

Waiting for the wind,

Hello & Good Day

This is an inaugural post for Radiant Fettle; please feel free to provide feedback and follow along as we grow our finely fettled family and product offerings! We felt an appropriate tribute would be a preview of a new soap recipe we tried out. We just cut it today and it looks great!

Cinnamon, Vanilla & Coffee Soap

Cinnamon, Vanilla & Espresso Soap

Layering cold process soaps is a new endeavor for us and we upped the ante by trying out a new recipe! The recipe for the coffee/espresso soap was found on the Bulk Apothecary blog and slightly modified for our purposes. This soap smells delightful and will hopefully live up to our expectations.

Now to wait.

Stay tuned for more updates from Radiant Fettle!
