Pink Leopard Soap

I really like how this soap turned out. I always loved the spots of leopards. This soap reminds me of a particular person I know of. She always would wear leopard print. I think she would have loved this soap. This was a very fun soap to make even though it did take a bit to make. I watched cake decorating videos as well as some leopard print soap videos to get the gist of how to make this. I kept in mind my elementary art teacher's advice about randomly placing items. I think I will be making this soap again, though probably in different colors.

I am still hand cutting all my soaps so they are uneven. I try to cut them to weight 4 ounces. Obviously, some will weight a bit more than than. All soaps that weight less than 4 ounces will be cut into sample sizes if there are any. The soap is scented with Black Cherry.

The ingredients are: Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Aqua (water), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Lard, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance, mica, titanium dioxide, manganese violt, iron oxide, tin oxide, chromium oxide green, ultramarine blue.

This soap is available for $7. Buy 4 soaps, get one free with all orders shipped free. I use only skin safe ingredients. Every person is created different with different allergies. I listed everything I use in this soap for your information. However, if a rash or irritated skin occurs, stop using the product immediately.

The End of My Website

It is with sadness in my heart that I must close my beautiful website. I don't have the sales to keep it open at this time. Perhaps in the future I will be able to open it again. I will keep my Etsy shop open though. Since I am just starting out selling, I will just keep a current inventory on my facebook business page in a photo album. When I get some interest, I will just put together a custom listing until I sell enough product to keep my inventory listed on Etsy. I know this is not ideal for many, but I just don't have the resources to keep my entire inventory on Etsy at this moment. I am very happy that Etsy does make it so easy for me to put up a listing and take payment which was a problem for me on the website.

I will be trying to do some more promoting of my business using this blog, Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook. Just remember, I am a Domestic Engineer (Stay at Home Mom) whose children come first. I homeschool all my children, I am part of a Children's Ministry team and we are still without a home as yet. I know that I will adjust eventually to shouldering a bigger load, but I am warning you that I will most likely have spotty posts until I find my groove.
