I've been Tumblr-d

I've been Tumblr-d ... come check it out and all of the other great ArtFire artisans!

Bath Favorites Spotlight



It's funny, but whenever I'm checking out the new additions to ArtFire, the soap draws my eye. I don't make soap, but one day I will try it. I don't buy fancy soaps, but one day I will purchase some of the ones on my Hot List. I love the scents, I love the idea of taking a bubble bath and actually having the privacy to do it and not have the water get cold either! The combination of scents and some of the descriptions are just heavenly!

I've done a bit of reading on making bath and beauty products and am just fascinated by it all. I don't know if I am a disciplined enough cook for making this sort of stuff, though. I tend to be the type of cook that uses a recipe as a guide, I don't measure much, and do guestimate a lot! My cooking usually comes out pretty good, but I think you have to be more of a scientist to make soaps, lotions, and bath fizzies. As my husband likes to say, "cooking is a science" and I always say in return, "no it isn't, its an art"...

This leads to this blog I found, I think it's relatively new as there aren't many posts, but it is called The Holistic Diva and has a great post on bath salts and salt in general. It is definitely a blog that I will keep my eye on!

Hopefully this spotlight will make you want to click on some of the items and do a little bit of shopping!
