Goats milk is one of my favorite mills to use for soap making. But occasionally I like to use buttermilk. The milk fats make this soap supper bubbly and it lathers superbly. I used a fragrance I had not used in sometime and I had forgotten how much I love Freesia! This soap is supper fun to make! It will be ready in four to six weeks.
Lets talk about candle for a minute! Did you know that each and every candle I make is tested for quality? If I change wax I have to test out fragrance and wicks to make sure the candles are going to smell good and burn properly. Candles have to be burned till the wax is melted to the edge of the container every single time you light it or it will not burn properly? Who knew a candle has a memory? If you don’t trim the wick down to a 1/4 inch that affects the flame and whether or not your candle will stay lit or not. Who knew candles are so complex?
Do you make New Years Resolutions? I don’t. I learned a long time ago they are easily broken! I do however sit down and write out goals for my business. I also pray over my family, friends, and business. I pray every night! I go through my devotions and ask Jesus for his guidance and will over all aspects of my life! Now Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. I made these heart soaps but I am reminded of St. Valentine the saint of love and marriage. Beheaded for his refusal to give up his faith. To trust it Jesus with all my heart is my goal. So we march on in this new year with renewed hope and faith.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Merry Christmas there is hope even today! Our Savior was born, died for our sins, rose again and sits on the throne! Praise the Lord!
Downtown Grass Valley has a wonderful event called Cornish Christmas. Every year vendors who make things by hand are invited to participate. It is a great place to get all your Christmas gifts. Plus you are supporting local business. Thank you to all who stopped by my booth tonight! If you cannot make it to this event you can order through my online store!
I love spending time with my family. Especially because they live so far away. We had good food, and a good visit. Then we spent time at the children’s museum in Tucson. That was a fun place. If you are in Tucson then maybe you can check it out. I scored a picture of my grandpa when he was in the navy. I also got a picture of my brother. Did you know 5 generations of my family have served our country? What holiday would be complete without shooting some targets and trying different guns? Well it was a lot of fun!
Thank you to all the men and women who are serving our country! I can’t express how grateful I am to you. I thank the good Lord for placing people who sacrifice a lot of holidays to keep our country safe.
I love the foaming soap. It’s so nice and lathers well. I made four different scents. Lavender herb, lemon grass, aloe and clover, and cool cucumber.
Candles poured by hand take a lot of time to make. After the fragrance is tested and the wick is checked.. then labeling and off to market. Coming to my store soon coconut wax candles.
What is emulsified salt scrub? It’s a exfoliating lotion/soap that you rinse off in the bath or shower. Your shin will be so soft after you use it. Winter is so drying. Treat your skin to some moisture!
Hi! I'm Staci from Staci's Homemade Soap! I LOVE making soap and I love the way my skin feels. Unlike store bought soap, my soap does not dry the skin! A natural product of soap making is glycerin! And skin loves it! Also goats milk is good for your skin. Goats milk has minerals in it and is loaded with vitamins .Goats milk also contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid....Goats milk soap is wonderful. I encourage you to try some! My goats milk lotion is a soothing moisturizer for dry skin. Since goats milk has selenium and vitamin A in it your skin will be happy and nourished.
