Neroli, Amber, Rose...oh my! And Mad Oils!

My first order from Mad Oils! So excited!
Over last week, I finally took the dive. I ordered some new supplies from mad Oils, and I absolutely love it! I received rosebuds, hibiscus petals, cornflower petals, and tea tree essential oil. They even included a little sample fragrance oil (It smells like Christmas in a bottle!) and a bit of sample mica. I've already used these in some soaps that you can see below!



So, first off we have my latest Amber handmade soap, scented with Amber fragrance oil from Bramble Berry, along with the cornflower petals from Mad Oils. Gorgeous!


I also made a Neroli & Shea soap, scented with Neroli & Shea Blossom from bramble Berry (I have SO MUCH of this from the samples!) and decorated with hibiscus petals and rosebuds. I love how this one came out, nice and white, no discoloration, and no acceleration. Fantastic!


I also got around to redoing my Etsy store with all my latest soaps, and you can view them here.

I do plan on ordering a bunch of new exfoliants, and I need to restock my castor oil and palm kernel -- order one and run out of two more! Oy.

I also entered Kenna's (from Modern Soapmaking) contest for Gratitude Soapery. I'm very excited for the opportunity, and if chosen will consolidate my Unique Useables with Gratitude -- and have a little leg up in the world to get everything up and going. So many things!

So, my soapy fellows -- anyone tried anything new lately? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Beautiful soaps, Ashley! I love the cornflower petals and rosebuds. I've heard great things about Mad Oils - I'll have to order from them sometime soon. (Like I don't have enough FOs already.) And best of luck to you with the Gratitude Soapery contest!
