It is October 10th, and I’m already thinking about Christmas. The smells, flavors, and joy everyone looks forward to each holiday season. How can I capture the essence of Christmas in a bar of soap?
I’m going to try this weekend, by whipping up a batch of Peppermint Mocha soap. Warm coffee mixed with refreshing peppermint.. comforting, relaxing and seasonally inspired!
I’m going to make my soap special by using all organic base oils, and only scent it with natural coffee and peppermint essential oil. I’m hoping to get a bar that is nourishing for your skin, rinsing away clean and leaving your shower smelling like your favorite local coffee shop or kitchen after your morning cup-o-joe.
After I try peppermint mocha, I’d like to make some more holiday scents.. I’m thinking maybe a Mulled Red Wine bar made with red wine replacing the water, or perhaps an exfoliating Gingersnap bar made with honey and cinnamon and ginger! I made a Pumpkin Spice soap for fall, with organic pumpkin puree and scented with cinnamon and clove essential oil. It has organic castor oil to leave your skin soft, and makes such a big bubbly lather! I love the way it turned out.
What are your favorite holiday scents?
