"Sarasota" A soap inspired by Mable Ringling's Rose Garden. At last count, there were 1,164 roses in 317 different varieties on the Ringling Estate in Sarasota, Florida...


  1. Love this one, too. I'm a huge rose scent fan (Stella McCartney's -- yum), but haven't got the hang of using them, as they always accelerate terribly on me. Has that not been a problem?

    OK, I'm done stalking you for tonight. :)

    1. haha...too funny! Yes, working with rose and florals in general is a bit tricky...I soap room temp and tend to avoid gel on my floral blends.

  2. All of your soaps are amazing! I was particularly touched by the inspiring story behind your peppered poppy soap, I am wondering what soap mold you use?

  3. Your handmade soap looks amazing! Sarasota looks like a garden of flowers. Perfect for the spring coming up!
    Handmade soap was never something I had used before, but then my husband and I started to look for better, more hydrating soaps this winter and organic, handmade soap seemed to be much more hydrating.
    It's so much fun to see all the different kinds of scents and designs there are.
    I've particularly enjoyed looking at the website. They have some pretty interesting options too!
