Champagne soap in the Emmet Street Creations store on Etsy
I’m not a big alcohol drinker but I have a weakness for champagne. I love the pop of the cork, the way it hisses as it’s poured into a flute glass and the way the effervescent bubbles tickle my nose. Most of all, I love the dry crisp scent of a freshly poured glass. For me, that scent brings back memories of celebrations, happy times with friends and romantic evenings.
You know what I don’t like about champagne? The morning after. The stuff gives me a nasty hangover that makes me regret all of my life choices up to that point. (Perhaps because I can’t stop myself from overindulging when I get the chance.)
So, when I discovered a phthalate free champagne fragrance oil from one of my favorite soap suppliers, I knew I had to use it. This scent does not disappoint! It’s clean and airy with a hint of sweetness. It’s like having a fancy party in your shower without the nasty hangover. Made with our blend of skin loving olive, rice bran, coconut, palm and avocado oils, this soap gently cleans your skin as the scent dances around your nose.

Handmade tea tree & Dead Sea mud soap in the Emmet Street Creations store on Etsy
A few months ago, I bought a little bag of Dead Sea clay powder and I’ve been itching to use it in a soap recipe. To turn the Dead Sea powder into Dead Sea mud, I simply added a bit of water, mixed it well and added it to my soap batter, along with tea tree essential oil, once the oils and lye emulsified.
The end result is a luxurious bar of deep-cleansing soap. Castor oil and coconut oil give this bar a fluffy, long-lasting lather and the Dead Sea mud provides plenty of slip, which makes it great for shaving.

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be selling my soap at the Hudson Flea again this summer! (I’ll be at every show except July.) As a result, I’ve been busy in my soap lab making all of my customer favorite varieties, like Handmade Honeysuckle soap (shown above) and a few new designs and scents that I’ll unveil in the next several weeks.
I hope to see some of you North East Ohioans there!
There are so many creative soap makers that inspire me. Check out some of my favorite finds on Pinterest! (Are we pinning buddies there? We should be.)
Good, clean fun

Sometimes a soap design, like the design for the Honeysuckle soap above, is a result of a huge mistake. Check out how I capitalized on my soaping failure.
This post shows what I was going for all long, but, I’ve since abandoned this design in favor of the one above which is a bit more sophisticated.

Let’s face it, in the art of soap making, things don’t always go according to plan. I’ve made my fair share of less than perfect soap. I often experiment with color combinations and new techniques and sometimes these experiments result in soaps that don’t make the cut for their own listing in my shop. The colors may not look as pretty as they did in my head, the scent might not be as strong as I wanted or I might have messed up the design I was trying to achieve. But no matter what the flaw might be, the soap is still perfectly good at performing its duty of keeping you clean while nourishing your skin.
I usually hold the “oops” batches for my own personal use but now I’m offering them to you in a mystery soap sampler at a discounted price. For only $15, you’ll receive a bag filled with five different full size bars of soap adding up to one pound or more. The contents of your sampler will remain a mystery until you open your package but a list of the soaps and ingredients will be included in the bag.
The mystery soap sampler is an exciting way to save money while stocking up on an item you use every day!
