Snow is Falling but it is SPRING at Lume Soapworks!

We got 9 inches of snow last night and now its 50 degrees!

Today in the soap studio we created a new soap (my Favorite thing to do in the studio) that really shouts Spring!  It is called Neroli and Poppy.  Neroli essential oil is a scent all it's own and the best way I can describe it is ....Coppertone Sun Tan Lotion circa 1975.  It is fresh and light and like no other essential oil.  Here she is! Packed with gently exfoliating Purple Poppy Seeds.  It will be ready in 3 weeks on our website and retail stores carrying our Bulk Soap.  My dad and I make all of the soap and today was like a well oiled machine.  He has been wintering in Texas and this was our first day soaping together in 10 wks!  It was a slow moving soap which makes for a very calm soaping day.

It is a coconut oil soap super fatted 7%.  What does that mean?  It means we add more skin loving oils to our formula that will never become soap because we discounted the lye to make it more luscious.  What does that mean for your skin?  Have you ever used a skin oil our oil based salt scrub and then hopped in the shower and you felt the residue loveliness on your skin?  That is what Lume's soap will do too.  It leaves a bit of hydrating oil behind to cap off skin after taking in the warm water and steam.  You will notice a difference in your skin after one use.  

We now added Almond Bliss to the Bulk Family...officially.   It sells so well we had to.  Almond is an essential oil everyone loves but it's more about the soap than the scent.  I hop in the shower and lather up 4 times when using Almond Bliss.  You cannot get enough of it.  Her it is! We make our soap the old fashioned way in small, 33 pound batches.  It behaves best in small batches but we have our share of Lucy and Ethel from the I Love Lucy Show too.  Today was a good day.  The soap behaved and all is well at Lume Soapworks!  Check out our website here and place an order today.  If you mention this blog in the notes Lume will give you free shipping on an order over $35.  Thank you for reading:) Have a great weekend.
