A Happy and Delicious Accident

Sometimes I flake out while I am working, especially if I am making several soap varieties at once. Yesterday, I meant to make a batch of Java Lava, a lovely mocha soap, but after I blended the cocoa powder into the raw soap, I quickly realized that I was out of that fragrance. What to do, what to do? I had to tap into the creative side of my brain and come up with something ... fast! I decided to make a Bundt cake soap, lightening part of the soap after the cook for a creamy feel and scenting it with a chocolaty Irish Cream. The result? One of my best pieces! I will definitely need to put a caution label on these soaps during my weekend market.

Summer! Fun! Beer! Soap!

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but I love me a cold beer on a hot day. And I love beer in the shower - beer soap, that is! Last Call, is formulated with local favorite, Narragansett Lager and a fresh, lemony fragrance. The hops in the beer are quite good for your skin, too!

You can read more about our beer soap in the Boston Herald and on GoLocal Prov and hear about it on Boston's local radio station, WROR! You can even read about it on Narragansett Brewing Company's web site!

Yay, beer! Yay, soap!
