The "House and Garden Show" preparation

Good Morning Everyone,

Now, all I’ve wanted to share with you are the batches of soap I am preparing for a special event.  The “House and Garden show”.  Yes, yes, yes, I am attending the show this year.  Not as a visitor but with a “The Body Bar” stand.  How exciting is that???  I’ve been wanting to exhibit at that show for 2 years now and I received an invitation 3 weeks ago.  This is when I know it is time to give my all and more.  For 2 weeks now, I’ve been carefully planning my soap batches and conceptualizing my stand.  The concept is my little secret so far and will remain so until you see me there.  Surprise! Surprise…  The soap batches however, I will give you a little sneak peek to wet your appetite (literally). 

The soap logs I've made so far all together
This is a soap slab scented with Lemongrass essential oil
This is my delicious "Chai Latte" soap log top. 
This is the "Chai Latte" Soap inside.  Scented with a blend of spices, vanilla and orange, this soap is divine.  The perfect unisex soap made with Rhassoul Clay and Cocoa Powder.
This soap is scented with Rose and contains Pink Clay.  This mild soap leaves a light rosy fragrance in the air and cleanses deeply. 
Now, this soap is a hit in my books.  Made with Goat's milk, figs and dates, it is very nourishing and moisturising for the skin.  Scented with "Dates and Exotic woods." The smell alone makes me want to stick the soap to my nose.
Scented with our "Sea Breeze" fragrance, this soap will wake you up in the winter.  Made with sea weed for a mild exfoliation, this soap will keep your skin soft and clear this winter.
This is "The Body Bar's" men's best friend.  This herbal soap with added green tea is manly, smells clean and will leaves the skin moisturised in these winter months.
Now, this soap is the ultimate if you battle to wake up in winter.  Made using Peppermint essential oil, it will seriously shake you into a bright new day.  
This is our gentle "Cucumber and Aloe" scented soap.  Made with Green Clay and linseeds for a cleansing, detoxifying and mildly exfoliating shower/bath.  This soap is also one of my favourites.  The scent is so clean and sweet at the same time.  It is so refreshing in summer and yet so comforting in winter.
How about a Berry Burst for a dull winter morning.  This Berry scented soap will sweeten your morning.  The sensual berry fragrance will enchant your senses and the rich soap will moisturise your skin.
Now this soap is seriously moisturising.  Made with Apricots and Cocoa Powder, our "Peach Millionaire" will gentle exfoliate your skin and give you the peachy glow.
Yum Yum Yum, this "Chocolate and Vanilla" scented soap is it!!!  Made with Cocoa powder for a rich chocolate scent, this soap is decadent and luxurious.  Perfect to satisfy those sweet cravings!
This soap is our absolute best for dry skin.  With Cocoa butter it will nourish and moisturise your skin.  With Rooibos tea, it will also gently exfoliate your skin.  Scented with Rooibos, a burst of Mandarine and a touch of soothing Chamomile, this soap is rich and comforting.

Here are some of my latest batches.  They are still in their moulds but so worth looking at.  I just want to put my teeth into them.  You must know, I've been on this diet for 2 1/2 months now and trust me, anything that looks like pudding makes me want to dive into it.

This is my Warm Coconut Soap with glitter sprinkled on top.  The scent is so wonderful.  Like the cucumber and aloe, it is so refreshing in summer and so comforting in winter.  This is the top of the log
Some perspective on the Warm Coconut log.  This is a layered soap with a thin layer of dark brown soap as a base.
This is "The Body Bar's" sweet Jasmine soap.  There is a white and cream swirl inside and the scent is just gorgeous.  Jasmine is one of the only floral scents I personally really enjoy.  I am not a floral person when it comes to body care but the sweetness of this Jasmine breaks the sharp floral note that most flowers have.
Time for a bit of Lavender.  This soap is also made with a swirl on the inside.  I chose white, black and lavender purple to create the swirl and of course, I sprinkled some beautiful Lavender flowers over the log. 
This is "The Body Bar's" Berry Nougat Bar.  Scented with Dewberry, this soap smells glorious.  Of course the colours fit perfectly with my logo, so it has to be "The Body Bar's" signature soap.  Made with soybean oil as well, this soap is very gentle and conditioning for the skin.

Well, well, well!  This was a sneak peek into my special "House and Garden Show" range.  I hope to see you there (24th of June- 3rd of July)
