First Ever Christmas Range

Hello everyone, long time no blog! This is mainly because I've been busy making soaps, foaming bath butters and scrubs in time for Christmas.

I've thoroughly enjoyed doing this as it's got me into the festive mood and it's also reminded me of my first Xmas as a fledgling soap maker which was last year.
I made Christmas cake soap slices and cocoa marshmallow bars and gave them to family and friends as presents.

They were a hit and it got me seriously thinking about making soap to sell to the public. So within a few weeks I had my Safety certification sorted and by May this year I was selling soaps locally and via Folksy.

So what's changed this Christmas? Well, I'm now selling a range of festive soaps, scrubs and bath butters via my website, my Folksy shop, Bower Hinton Stores (a local shop) and will also be attending 3 craft fairs. A very exciting time!

So here's the Christmas 2010 range from Melusine Soap, starting with a revamped version of my Christmas cake soap:

Luxury SLS-free glycerine soap, with added moisturising Shea butter and exfoliating oatmeal and scented with a fruity, warm and spicy Christmas cake fragrance oil.
This limited edition soap is made especially for Christmas and resembles a slice of traditional fruit cake - red and green soap chunks embedded in shea butter and oatmeal laden soap, topped with a yellow layer of 'marzipan' and finally whipped soap 'icing'.  A great stocking filler or something to give your bathroom a festive flair!

Luxury SLS-free glycerine foot scrub soap made with real ground pumice stone. Clean and buff your feet at the same time!

Made with lashings of sweet almond oil and topped with an individual sugar scrub soap. Scented with a delicious chocolate orange fragrance oil.

A luxury SLS-free gingerbread man shaped soap, scented with a spicy ginger and cinnamon fragrance oil.  A perfect stocking filler gift for Christmas!

A luxury SLS-free glycerine soap, with jolly red 'berries' suspended in a snow white bar and scented with an uplifting tangy and fruity cranberry fragrance oil.  Also contains moisturising shea butter, a real treat for your skin!

Luxury foaming bath butter, scented with a delectable custom blend of juicy cherries and rich chocolate, giving it a very realistic black forest gateaux fragrance.

Luxury, SLS-free glycerine soap, in the shape of a teardrop with intricate Victorian style patterning. With added moisturising shea butter and coloured with shimmering red and green micas, capturing the spirit of Christmas!
Comes in a choice of fragrances - just select your choice from the drop down menu:
'Christmas Spice' - A blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, basil, balsam, fir and warm spices.
'Frankincense' - A sweet resinous aroma, highly prized in ancient times and valued as highly as gold.
'Mistletoe' - A gentle green festive mistletoe and pine fragrance
'Mulled Wine' - A cosy blend of festive fruits, wine and warm sweet spices.

A fun Christmas bath-time treat! Glittery blue SLS-free glycerine soap, shaped like a star, with a squirty rubber duckie 'skating' on top.  Scented with a familiar toffee apple fragrance oil.

Celebrate Winter Solstice with this luxury, mica laden SLS-free glycerine soap, depicting The Goddess in shimmering frosty mica on a dark blue-black winter's night background.  With added apricot kernel oil to moisturise and soothe and scented with a beautiful ethereal blend of pine, spruce, fern, ozone, amber, musk and cosy spice on a background of vanilla.  

A luxury SLS-free heart shaped glycerine soap, made with lashings of moisturising sweet almond oil and scented with a sumptuous Irish Cream fragrance oil.  A perfect little stocking filler for lovers of the famous tipple!

Luxury foaming scrub, scented with a sweet but fresh peppermint fragrance and packed full of lovely scubby sugar to massage your skin and provide gentle exfoliation.  Topped off with a festive sprinkling of red sugar, giving this scrub the traditional red and white candy cane colour combination!

A great little novelty stocking filler!
Luxury SLS-free glycerine soap, shaped like a Christmas tree and threaded with dark red organza ribbon to use as an actual tree decoration! 
Coloured a sparkling green with red 'baubles' and scented with a truly festive fragrance: a combination of pine tree (a fresh strong pine tree fragrance with a hint of light forest flowers, earthy woods and sweet rain) and mulled wine (A cosy blend of fruit, wine and warm sweet spices).  Comes gift wrapped in a silver presentation box.
