{ Sweet Innocence Soap }

Hello loves,

I have a hard time letting things be simple and decided to make some fancy versions of the { Innocence Soap } with lavender essential oil and honey. If you know me, you know I love honey and have a small, sort-of rotating collection which I acquired from various locales, so it shouldn’t be any surprise when I toss some honey into a recipe.

This soap promises to be wonderful!

While it may be a good fit for your baby’s bath time it’s always wise to do a small patch test before lathering up for a full-on bath. ( This is true for adults, too. It’s often hard to predict what your skin will reject and is much safer to only suffer on one square inch than on your entire face or body! )

Sing-songingly,
Kelly

{ Turmeric Twist Soap }

Hello friends,

This week we bore witness to a lucky occurrence of a Blood Moon. I slept through it but have indulged in pouring over pictures of it online, and it was stunning. A strange thing happens to me during full moons: my sleep becomes horrible. Perhaps the extra luminescence makes deep sleep more elusive or maybe full moon madness stirs my thoughts, keeping them from settling enough to sleep. Whatever transpires causes in me a restlessness that wriggles from my toes all the way up through my awareness. It’s bothersome but a minor complaint. However, because of my recent sleep deprivation I will not be attending tonight’s Yoga + Wine Under the Stars, John Lennon Vintage.

Instead I will stay in and work on soaps, butters and balms for you lovelies.

Languidly yours,
Kelly
