Life is like tomato soup

Tomato soup! Yay! Why such excitement for something so simple? Because sometimes simple is often best. Tomato soup seems so easy, so nonchalant but in actuality Tomato soup is anything but simple. Tomato soup is versatile. You can use it in casseroles, baking, slow cooking, as a base for more complicated soups, etc, etc...

So what does that have to do with life? Well life seems simple on the outside. You wake up, you eat, you work, you play, you eat, you sleep, so no and so on. But just stir it up a bit. Add another ingredient. Change how you use it then suddenly the flavor will change. It goes from simple to exciting!

This is the approach that I like to take with regards to my soap making. I mean after all, soap is soap, at least on the surface. But start adding raw silk, fine quality base oils, high quality fragrances and rich botanicals and the "flavor" changes. The simple becomes exotic, the bland becomes exciting!

So the next time you're offered tomato soup, remember it's what's on the inside that counts.

Get Incensed!

We are now offering incense cones in the shop in some familiar scents and in other wonderful new scents. Each cone burns for 20 to 25 minutes on average and comes with a small ceramic dish for holding or burning the incense in.

How do you burn incense? Place the incense in a heat proof container on a level surface away from drafts. Light the narrow end of the cone, allowing it to burn for a few seconds. Gently blow on the flame to encourage a glowing ember to form on the tip of the cone, then blow out the flame. The glowing ember will slower consume the incense all the way to the bottom of the dish, releasing a beautiful fragrant smoke. Sit back and watch the smoke dance around and about.

Currently available in
  • Ski Bunniez
  • Vanilla Sandalwood
  • Lemongrass & Sage
  • Spiced Pumpkin SoufflĂ©
