Field of Dreams

One of my very favorite handcrafted soaps is my 'Field of Dreams - Lavender.' I love raising the oh-so-fragrant lavender, even though it's tricky to winter it over in the house. It's hard to walk past that plant without pulling off a couple leaves and rubbing them between my fingers to release that great burst of fragrance.

Lavender, waiting to be used in my soaps!

Lavender is such a popular fragrance that we've made more lavender soap than any other. Made with all-natural base oils, essential oils, and botanicals (yes, lavender from our own garden, -or from the pot on our deck-  dried and crushed), Field of Dreams Lavender is an all-time favorite. Close your eyes and you can imagine that you're standing amidst the huge lavender fields of England.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, Olive oil, Palm oil, Soybean oil, Essential oils, All-natural botanicals, Distilled water, Sodium hydroxide

Top shelf, Field of Dreams curing for six weeks before getting their labels 

 
Field of Dreams - Lavender, wrapped in cello bag, gift-ready for you!



All my soaps are appx. 4 oz. and wrapped in pretty labels and cello envelopes, which make them nice gifts to give to the new teacher, grandma, new mom, a birthday gift, or even just to add a kind-to-your-skin, luxurious bar of fragrant soap to your own shower! You'll love it!  :-)

So, go to my soap store, Soap'n'Such, and order 5 bars. We'll send you a sixth bar FREE!  Check out my soap gift packages while there. :-)

Make someone smile today - even if it's you! :-)

Ladies: I live by her "store" and I am here to tell you they are WONDERFUL! She does a wonderful job with them and they truly smell whatever the name is that she gives them. Worth ordering at least one and I promise, you will order more. They are very nice!

Wow! You are so talented! I love the scent of lavender. I bet the soap is just fantastic! Have a great night. I am waiting for some more "climb over the dog" lines. :) How did that go? That was cute.

I have a "thing" for handmade soaps. Lavender is a particular favorite! Fortunately for me - and unfortunately for you :) - my friend Lori bought me a year's worth of seasonal-scented soaps for Christmas last year, knowing my weakness. What a TREAT. You are blessed to be able to make and enjoy your own! There's no scent quite as relaxing as lavender...

Hello,
Just found your blog through another blog. I really enjoyed looking over your soaps. This is one thing I have always wanted to learn how to make. However, I don't have time to breathe right now with 4 kids with school & sports. Hopefully this is something in my future.
Anyhoo, I just wanted to stop in & say hi. Love your pictures.
