Exciting news!

Well, it is official....

Isadora Soap Company

was born last week.

I am ready to roll out testing on natural hair butter and lotion bars. Can't wait to hear what you all think. :)

The soap is taking a little longer, much more involved process and I am taking it all slow considering I still have a full time job, 3 kiddos and need sleep.

Thank you everyone for your encouragment and support.

New Soap

A few weeks ago I made a couple of bars...Lemon and Spearmint

I LOVE them lemon. It smells really sweet. Nothing like you would think it would smell. I love jumping in the shower every morning and smelling it...what a great way to start off the day!!! I really think the handmade soap is a nice (and fairly inexpensive) luxury!

They both turned out nice, but still working on the perfect formula. Hopefully in 2011!!

Chocolate Soap

So here it hot process chocolate soap. It smells great, not sure how long that will last though.
On another soap related note, I just boxed up about 40 bars for an orphanage in Ethiopia!

On deck

So, I have had a lot going on and have not had much time to soap, it has been horrible! Last weekend I got back into it and made some soap using a new process. It is called "hot process" and basically you cook the soap in a crock pot until it has "soapified" and you can use it right away. Cold process is what I learned to soap with and it requires about 4 weeks of curing time for the soapification to complete and make the soap usable. Anyway, HP (hot process) results in a slightly softer bar which is a little more chunky looking. It is hard to describe and you just have to see it. I will be making some soap for Nicky's birthday favors and did not have time to wait for the cold process to cure. I really like it, all natural soap in a fraction of the time!

On deck this weekend: HP chocolate cocoa butter (can't wait for this one!) and CP shea butter.

Lots of people have asked if I sell my soap. Not yet, I would really love to, but am still developing my formula. I want it to be perfect before anyone pays for it! If you are interested in testing for me, please send me an email ( and I can add you to the list. The only requirement is that you provide helpful feedback. :)

I have been doing a lot of testing perfecting my recipe to use in colored and scented soaps, I think I might have found it!

This is my second attempt with color and essential oils, it is called "Energize". Although I was shooting for a light blue color, I think the sea green looks great. We also added glitter to the top to add some bling. The smell is wonderful!

This is my first attempt at using color and essential oils. This essential oil is called "Relaxation" and is a blend of Lavendar and Palmarosa. The scent is wonderful!

This was also my first time with layers.

Coffee Soap

I found a recipe for coffee soap and thought it sounded interesting. Well, it is! I actually smells like chocolate. This soap was made with strong brewed coffee and coffee grounds for exfoliation. Intriguing, huh??
