And the winner is... August 2016 giveaway announced September 2, 2016 06:35

August has been a busy month, kids going back to school, harvesting the garden and canning everything in sight, plus maintaining my business and making new requested products.  I apologize this announcement is late but better late than never.

Most of my customers know that once a month one lucky customer is picked to win free goodies from Lisa's Natural Herbal Creations LLC.  I was able to notify the winner yesterday by email even though my schedule has been hectic.  So, without further ado, please congratulate Ashton Herndon of Ranger, GA.  Ashton won a multi-variety pack of big chunky soaps which included mountain jasmine coconut milk soap, absinthe coconut milk soap, sea island grapefruit soap and cedar & saffron soap.   Enjoy!

I have been debating over what item to have as the September 2016 giveaway but have narrowed it down.  What better way to introduce my herbal shampoo bars.  These shampoo bars are one hundred percent natural, made with herbs and botanicals that are said to promote lustrous, shiny, healthy hair.  Each one is made with a special essential oil blend that smells amazing.  September's winner will receive one bar of each (a total of three bars).

1) Down to earth beer & wheat germ herbal shampoo bar (essential oil blend of lavender, peppermint, anise and fir needle)

2) Patchouli and friends herbal shampoo bar (essential oil blend of orange, patchouli, lemongrass and sandalwood)

3) You, me and Rosemary herbal shampoo bar (essential oil blend of rosemary, lime, grapefruit and basil)

 

The top soap is Down to Earth Beet & Wheat Germ Herbal Shampoo Bar, below it is Patchouli and Friends Herbal Shampoo Bar.  You, Me and Rosemary Herbal Shampoo Bar has not been cleaned up and stamped yet, so not picture yet.

If this sounds like something you would like, get your order in for your chance to win.

Good luck everyone!

Tangerine Dancing Funnel Swirl Soap August 8, 2016 08:00 21 Comments

This month's Great Cakes Soap Challenge was the dancing funnel swirl technique.  I really enjoyed this challenge and do plan to make more soaps using what I have learned. The guidelines were as follows.  The soap had to be made using the cold process method in a slab mold.  The outline color was to remain the same and no embellishment added to the soap.  There were two categories to enter into, either all natural or synthetic.  I chose the all natural category.

My recipe consists of:

25% coconut Oil, 20% palm oil, 15% apricot kernel oil, 15% babassu oil, 15% sunflower oil and 10% shea butter.  I used a water discount of 30% in this recipe.

I began by infusing olive oil with my chosen natural colors, black walnut hull powder, and paprika.  I used my crock pot with some water and placed it on the warm setting for a few hrs, then turned it off and let it cool down completely and strained the oil.

 

Next, I lined my mold and gathered the rest of my ingredients to begin making the soap.

 Besides, the infused oil for color I opted to use the straight herbs/spices as well for a more concentrated color.  The scent I chose was tangerine essential oil.  

  

With my squeeze bottles all ready to go, I was ready to make soap.  I did not use a stick blender to achieve emulsification of the soap batter, I hand stirred, which took me 27 minutes.

 Here is the soap batter in the squeeze bottles.  From left to right, colored with black walnut hull powder, colored with paprika powder, colored with paprika infused oil, no color added to the last bottle on the far right.

So I began making my dots as in the tutorial, once finished I placed plastic wrap over the mold and put it in the oven for approximately one hour on the warm setting of my oven, which is about 150 degrees to ensure gel.  I completely forgot to take a snapshot of it before I put it in the oven.  The soap batter was VERY fluid and I had to take it up two flights of stairs to my kitchen from my soaping room without giggling it too much.  Adrenaline rush!  

After that, I started clean up.  I had a bit of soap that was stuck in the bottles so I filled them into some column mold to use later for embeds.

    I did not gel the embeds.

On to the cut.

 I measured and cut the slab into four bars, plained and beveled the edges.  I really liked the way this soap turned out and the tone of colors that I achieved with the combination of straight herb and infused oil.  The contrast is quite dramatic.

How to care for your handmade soaps July 18, 2015 12:51

How to care for your handmade soaps.

The handmade soap you purchase from Lisa's Natural Herbal Creations is free from chemical preservatives and hardeners so they will need special care to help make them last longer.  Since my soaps have a naturally high glycerin content they must have a place to dry out between uses, because glycerin attracts water and if left in standing water your soap will break down quickly.
 For longer lasting soap
1. Use a soap dish or deck that has good drainage or a soap rack so that your soap dries out between uses.
2.Keep your soap out of direct stream of water when not in use.
3. Educate you family member on how to care for your handmade soaps.
If you purchase extra bars of soap and are storing them, please take note.  Unused soaps need to be stored in a cool dry place (preferably NOT in the bathroom because of high humidity).  A linen closet or dresser drawer are great places plus they will naturally scent them with the wonderful fragrance of your handmade soaps.

It contains a 10oz Dead Sea Salt Foot Scrub in Rosemary Mint and a 4.5oz jar of my new Cooling Summer Time Foot Cream. Here's a little info on each of these products that I made from scratch.

The foot scrub is made with dead sea salt and fine sea salt to give the perfect amount of exfoliation to your feet. It is made with rich mango butter, avocado and sunflower oils that will leave your feet soft. Great unisex scent from rosemary, spearmint, tea tree and peppermint essential oils.

The Cooling Summer Time Foot Cream is made with Organic hemp seed oil, mango butter and jojoba oil so it is super moisturizing. It will give your feet a protective layer and help to heal and seal your cracked feet because of the 5% beeswax and 1% lanolin in it. What makes it give the cooling effect, that would be the 2% menthol crystals. Menthol crystal are natural product and made from peppermint. There is also 2% Tea Tree essential oil in this foot cream for it's anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Perfect to help keep your feet healthy. While the scent of the foot cream is minty it is balanced with essential oils of rosemary and spearmint.

I will have both of these products listed for sale very soon.
