Shimmery White Soap Flowers
Last weekend our local paper, The Seattle Times, published an informative article about non-traditional places to tie the knot around the Pacific Northwest. Titled Around the Northwest, Great Places to Say “I do”, this article is worth checking out if you are thinking of a destination wedding or dream about getting married somewhere outdoors.
If you are local and haven’t seen the article, be sure and take a look. There might be a few places you’ve never heard of!

This article in The Seattle Times: Shimmer makes a festive statement at home made us think of our beautiful decorative soaps that shimmer and shine when we hand-paint them with metallic micas. It looks like we are right on trend! Our collection of shimmery soaps include seashells, flowers, hearts and some of our bar soaps. You can find them at our Etsy Store: http://www.esscentssoaps.etsy.com/ and at our website: http://www.esscents.net.

Star Shaped Blue Glitter Soaps
First of all – Happy 4th of July! We hope your day is full of sunshine, family, friends, good food and safe fireworks!
We thought this would be a perfect day to feature an order we are currently working on. Last week we were asked to create 80 custom blue glitter star soaps for a baby boy’s baptism party. We’ve been busy making these pretty layered soaps scented with our signature scent – Seattle Rain.
These soaps are three inches across and weigh about 2.5 ounces each and are made with clear glycerin and white goat’s milk soap. Colored in a pretty light turquoise, they feature skin-safe glitter for a fun sparkle!
We’ve made these soaps in red, white and creme. These blue stars got us thinking that we should make a set of pink stars. Don’t you think they would be perfect for a baby shower or a girl’s birthday party? Stay tuned!
White Star-Shaped Glitter Soap
We can’t wait to ship our blue glitter star soaps out next week. We’re sure they will be a big hit!
Have a safe 4th of July.
Ice Blue Metallic Seashell Soap Set

Very Cherry Cupcake Soap
Key Lime Pie Soap Slice
In previous posts we’ve talked about our lifelike cupcake soaps made out of moisturizing goat’s milk soap. They have been so popular that we decided to branch out with another line of luxurious dessert soaps that look and smell just like cakes and pies. Now you can have your cake and bathe with it, too!
First off is our new key lime pie soap slice which is created with an oatmeal and glycerin base. Oatmeal is a great exfoliant and it is also used for dry, itchy skin. The base is covered with a fragrant lime goat’s milk soap and then topped with white goat’s milk and a glycerin lime slice. This long-lasting bar weighs 5 to 5 1/2 ounces and makes a great gift to yourself or someone else. Think teacher gifts…!
Lemon Chiffon Cake Soap
Lemon Chiffon Cake Soap Slice
Our lemon chiffon cake soap is made using the cold process method, which is the “old-fashioned” way of making soap. This is the only way we can get the icing to be piped with an icing bag, just like a real bakery ices their cakes. This soap is made with olive oil, coconut, oil, palm oil, castor oil and scented with lemon chiffon fragrance oil. Then it is topped with soap “icing”, a glycerin lemon slice and skin-safe glitter to add a pretty shimmer. (The glitter washes right off when you use it.) These slices range from 5 ounces to almost 7 ounces and are priced based on their weight. They will last an incredibly long time and provide lots of great smelling lather and moisture to your skin.
Audrey has been perfecting her frosting and decorating skills with our cold process cupcake soaps. Each one varies a bit but are made with all the same rich ingredients as our other cold process soaps.
Rose Scented Cupcake Soap with Red Heart
We also have lemon chiffon and fruit slices cupcake soaps and stay tuned for our Goat’s Milk Berry Pie and more varieties of cold process cupcakes and cakes. Let us know if you have any scents or “flavors” you would like to see us create!
