Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. And it’s not for the obvious reason. I’ve always felt it was a special day because I was born the day after, February 15th. So, it’s always been a 2 day celebration for me. And besides, can I say one word? Chocolate.
This year, I couldn’t decide on just one soap for my birthday holiday. So I’ve made four different soaps that will make a Valentine’s Day soap quartet. The soaps needed to complement each other in color and scents. They need to look and smell good together. I think I’ve come up with a winning combination.
Soap Number 1-
A beautiful pink soap with a red swirl, scented with lavender. Sprinkled with glitter and made on December 10th. Like a pink package wrapped with a red ribbon.
Soap Number 2-
Pure white, geranium rose and patchouli scented, topped with a tiny red heart and glitter. Made on December 12th. The hearts look edible, but please don’t. This soap smells great, but tastes horrendous. (Remember when your mom washed out your mouth with soap? Yeah, like that.)
Soap Number 3-
White, purple and fuchsia swirl, with bergamot and grapefruit and a scant sparkle of glitter. Made on December 18th. Absolutely gorgeous. Enough said.
Soap Number 4-
Delicate cherry blossom pink in color, with a golden ribbing running through the bar. Lavender and fennel aroma. Made on December 21st. All of these soaps are my favorites, but I think this one really is.
Packaged together in a cello bag with ribbon. Each soap is approximately 2 ounces and the total weight of the package is 8 ounces. Made with olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter.
