heidi: “maddi, i think this is my favorite soap ive ever made…… is that weird?”
its holiday season, and here at bodygoodies, that means limited bars. however, in the process of making limited bars.. we just.. well.. we fall in love. and i mean people are great and all, but who can resist soap?
this? this is jupiter.
like the planet? exactly.
well, jupiter got its name because.. look at it! its creamy and orange and seems to swirl around the bars just like a storm on the largest planet of our solar system- jupiter. can you blame heidi for falling in love with the bar?
it smells a bit like pine, patchouli and orange - however, its future appearance will have slight variations. what happens is, throughout the orange, we have chunks of bars that were extra. so, depending on whats available to be used, the bar will change from time to time.. the orange and white will be consistent. but really, its just gorgeous no matter what.
holidays are fun here, because i think heidi gets to have a lot of fun. of course she loves dumping mud into crud, and topping the spa bars with leaves.. but during the holidays, we come out with exciting bars. yesterday her and tommy poured out a three layered bar that smells like mint, for december (shh).. but, its so much fun to be able to create a bar.. its kind of like writing a song, and just finding the perfect things that go together. what colors, and scents.. what kind of design should be on top - do you want it to be scrubby or not? well, this oil will turn the bar brown, but this clay will make it green.
by the time you have it all ready.. you have like.. five whole minutes to throw it all together before the soap gets hard! and then, you wait a day, and you take the soap out of its silicone mold, and you cut it. and the first cut is like opening the closet door to Narnia. and after you take the soap cutter out of the soap, and pull the slab of soap away from the whole batch… its like walking through all of the coats into the magical land of snow and centaurs and polar bears and magic elixirs and potions. its very easy to fall in love with soaping, but its really cool that heidi gets to do what she loves. and they say that if you follow your dreams, and do what you love, that you’ll never feel like your working a day in your life - well, she works. a lot. but i think its because doing what she loves evens it out.
so lets give a round of applause to the newest member of the family, who will hit the shelves sometime in mid december! and one more round for the lady behind the fun, the craziness, and the narnia closet!
