Born to Blend
I've just received some new essential oils and wanted to give you a heads up.
2 of these oils in particular are born to blend. I just can't wait to get my pipettes on them.
They are a new Clary Sage and a new Frankincense.
Both are slightly different than the ones I had (of course) with some amazing potential for freshening up a nice lemon/citrus blend as a room freshener, deodorant or soap.
A Kick You Know What Lemon Soap
I've been wanting to make one of these since the day I opened (my company name is Sunshine Soap Co, long story as to how my websites ended up with different names, but the name has been calling for a signature lemon soap for a looooong time!)
So I am going to be spending some time in blending land this weekend and barring anything weird coming up.
LIKE BEARS DOING A B&E ON MY VEHICLE
I've been on a roll lately, the latest escapade being a bear smashing in the side passenger window of my jeep with a repair bill of 380.00, the good news being that I yelled at him (from my house window and he sauntered off in the right direction, which was down the driveway) and the saddest being the loss of our family dog Maggie to pancreatitis.
I will have more on that as it was a shock to us and something everyone should know about to protect their pet. The place sure seems empty without her smiling face.
ON MY LIST OF OILS TO BLEND
The main oils that I am looking forward to playing with are our new frankincense, clary sage and 5 fold lemon (I was so happy to get one with better staying power iin soapmaking), and white grapefruit, sandalwood, geranium – I'm not sure whether or not to go with chinese or rose, maybe a blend with both? Basil, lavender (wish I still had some high altitude, it would be perfect), bergamot, patchouli and maybe cinnamon.
Who knows what else?
You can see more about those essential oils.
I'll keep you posted on the new blends next week and maybe even have a rockin lemon soap recipe for you to play with and some links for you to check out the new oils.
I worked on them last night, but wouldn't you know it, managed to lose half of it.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE?
On the subject, the new cart is coming. I am basically setting up a new site with the new product pages so it's taking more time than I had planned on, but when it's finished, it will be far more functional and have better features than the one we've been using.
I'm really looking forward to it.
Be sure to let me know if there are any features or products that you'd like to see and I'll do my best.
Here's a bit more info on it as well as how you can put up your own site if it's on your list of things to do.
