Frosted Apple Spice Handcrafted Soap

Frosted Apple Spice

Here in NW Wisconsin, it went from hot summer to chilly autumn practically overnight! Sadly, all of my butternut and sunshine squash looked a tad translucent when I checked on them Sunday morning. Although had I covered many other plants to protect them from frost, I totally forgot to cover the squash - which live in their own garden behind the garage. I wonder if the people at the huge, nearby pumpkin patch had to cover all those pumpkins on Saturday night!

Because of a hard frost last spring after the McIntosh tree was in full blossom, it bore no fruit this year, although I do still have dried apple peel and several pints of applesauce from last year's crop.

There's something so inviting about the fragrance of spiced apple! Do you remember going to the apple orchard when you were a kid? We did, and they gave us spiced apple cider as well as samples of several apple varieties. I remember the blue skies, the warm sun, the cool air, and the bees that hovered near the apple bins. Our Frosted Apple Spice homemade soap will most certainly take you back to those wonderful weekends at the apple orchard (minus the bees.)


Frosted Apple Spice is made with all natural base oils. Creamy, fragrant, natural. No animal products are ever used in our homemade soaps. It's a favorite soap for a quick shower or a luxurious bath. With dried and ground apple peel from our McIntosh tree, Frosted Apple Spice soap has just the right amount of botanical. Both the apple peel and the textured top of this bar of soap make it a beautiful, visually appealing, 'frosted' bar of soap.

Good Morning, I have fond memories of visiting apple orchards in north Georgia. Apple pies, cider, etc. Your soap sounds wonderful! Enjoy your Monday.

i am allergic to perfumes, but not to cinnamon apple spice, i bought a candle yesterday and it is scenting up my kitchen right now with the sweet smell of apple spice. cranberry and vanilla are the other two scents that don't make me sneeze and cough. i love spiced apple cider or even plain apple cider, cold or hot. we have a cool spell this morning, woke up to 72

This looks amazing! I promised my husband I wouldn't buy anything until we have a place to live, yes, we are kind of just floating around at the moment, but I want soaps! He is afraid it is going to get lost in the mail....

I can't believe how fast the weather turned all of a sudden. I missed sweatshirt weather in Texas.

The soap looks very inviting - now that even looks like it had frosting on it!

I bet that is a wonderful soap. I've never tried using the dried apple peels in my soap, but it would be a great exfoliant.
