2015-03-28 09.15.48 2015-03-28 09.15.59 2015-03-28 09.16.25 2015-03-28 09.16.58 2015-03-28 09.17.07I spent last week painting Soapalooza Studio with fun, inspiring paint! We stained the floor, and added vibrant curtains! The lease is locked in for the next 4 years, hurray!

I waited until the lease was locked in to do the redecorating, and then it was a rush to get it all done in time for the Saturday VA Area Soap and Bath & Body Products Meet Up. It was the first meet & greet, so I wanted the Studio to look fantastic.

We had four people show up on this first event, and it was fun! One attendee also had contracted for a Wine Soap Making Class directly after the Meet Up also.

Later in April, a handyman is coming to construct a cabinet and shelf system around the two areas that house mechanical devices for the facility. Can’t move them, so we will encase them so we can show off the space more effectively. Also, an electrician comes and rewires, or ‘tones’ the electrical outlets so we have more places to plug in at! Hurray!

Don’t forget about the current Spring Fragrance Pre Sale… all these fragrances are returning to my fragrance library. The sooner we complete these, the sooner the next batch of my fragrances to return also! The June line up will include several long awaited fragrance oils of mine also! All Pre Sale fragrances are offered at at 15% discount over their regular retail prices, and will NEVER be offered this low again.

Good luck and safe soap making from Soapalooza Soap Arts Studio, where soapmaking is an Art, an Adventure, and a Passion!

Thank You and Many Thanksgiving Blessings

stockxpertcom_id440246_size1[1]

Thank all of you for your continued support at Soapalooza! 2014 has been a year of many blessings and abundance here at the Soapalooza Studio and within my own family.

This time last year my grand daughter had just been born, and come home from the hospital with my daughter to stay with me. My daughter and baby Sophia are now happy in the Atlanta area. My daughter & Sophia’s daddy had their own special Thanksgiving this year! I am Thankful that my daughter & son in law are happy, and that I got to help deliver Sophia at the hospital and have my daughter and her with me while they needed my home.

My son came back to live with me after some turmoil at his father & stepmother’s home. It has been wonderful to have him back here. He is in 8th grade now, and taking some High School credit classes, and I am so proud that he made the A/B Honor list for the first marking period! I willingly let his father have the chance to finish raising him, but am so thankful that I get to do this!

My daughter in Colorado has grown her soap business, Nederland Naturals, to a point that she is supporting her business and supplementing her own income! I am so proud of her also. I am so thankful that I could pass on the skill set for her to do this! I am thankful my daughter is strong and resourceful. I am Thankful that Robert, born early at 5.6 lbs, is a happy, healthy, thriving little boy that I adore.

I am Thankful that my daughter in Miami is safe and happy with her boyfriend, and that she is also strong and prevails over the periodic turbulance that occurs in her life also! She is my youngest daughter, and still making her way in the world.

My eldest daughter, up in New York, I am Thankful that she is happy creating the life that she wants.

I am Thankful that my loved ones are safe and healthy. I am Thankful that I am safe, happy, and healthy… I am Thankful that I am able to do all the creative things that pop in my head, create the Soapalooza Studio and curriculum, to share it with others that want to learn from my experience.

Good luck and safe soap making from Soapalooza Soap Arts Studio, where soapmaking is an Art, an Adventure, and a Passion!

Great Essential Oil Blends!

BloomWorks Soap Company

Years ago, long before I purchased my first ounce of fragrance oil (it just was not available to soap makers back then!), I started using essential oils with my herbal soaps. Originally, ALL my soap was JUST herbal based. I was a spice vendor, so adding herbs and spices was as natural as breathing at the time, I learned to color all my soaps with spice or herb infusions. None of my soap was scented, just pretty. Gradually, I started noticing that there were some essential oils available, and started experimenting with them for scent. This was still back when finding essential oils in more than 1/2 or 1 oz bottles was very hard, and often much more expensive than they are today.

Below are some of my favorite Essential Oil blends that I developed for my BloomWorks Soap Company product line:

Cedarwood & Lime: 2 parts Cedar, 3 parts Lime

Tangerine Lemongrass: 3 Tangerine, 2 Lemongrass

Sandalwood Tangerine 3 Tangerine, 1 Sandalwood

Bay Rose; 2 Geranium Rose, 1 Palmarosa, 1 Bay Laurel

Patchouli Rose: 1 Patchouli, 2 Geranium Rose

Fairy Garden: 1 Lavandin, 1 Ylang Ylang, 1 Rosewood, ½ sweet orange

Cedar Mint: 1 Peppermint, 2 Spearmint, 2 Cedar

Desert Flowers: 3 Rosewood, 1 Ylang, 1 Lavandin, 1 Geranium Rose, 1 Patchouli

Cleopatra: 4 rosewood, 2 ylang ylang, 1 sandalwood
