Moroccan Mint Tea

A soothing blend of spearmint and peppermint with finely ground Moroccan mint tea leaves...simply divine...you can watch the making of this soap here.


Peppered Poppies

A mysterious blend of pomegranate, orange and cherry blossoms topped with a dash of spicy cinnamon, cardamom and cocoa...

In remembrance of my Grandad, Mark Carlin, who bravely risked his life and lost his brothers in WW2. He never discussed those days with us...the few stories we know were relayed through our parents many years ago. What I do know for sure, is that he was an awesome man who loved his family dearly.

I spent my early childhood in Scotland, where I have precious memories of wearing bright red poppies every November in remembrance for those who lost their lives at war. It's still something I hold dear to my heart. Something that reminds me of sacrifice, bravery, compassion and my sweet Grandad Mark.


Sweet Fig...

I was recently searching through pictures looking for inspiration for my Sweet Fig soap, when time and time again, I came across the most amazing photographs of bright, juicy figs in all their delight! 

The creative genius behind the lens is Cathy Arkle, a food blogger, culinary explorer, graphic artist, and world traveler. She has worked as a graphic artist for major networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX & ESPN) and has collected several Emmys in the field of graphic design...impressive stuff! 

Please take some time to check out Cathy's blog, She Paused for Thoughtyou'll marvel at the amazing photography, posts and recipes that she shares! Speaking of sharing, Cathy told me that she used to soap too! How fun is that?! 

Here is Sweet Fig v.1.0, will have to work on those colors some more and come back with a v.2.0!
