FO Friday 57: Friday Night is Bath Night

I found this marvellous image of the 6 of Wands online from the Phantomwise Tarot by Erin J. McCauley to illustrate today's post: it's Friday, and the start of half-term, and we have made it !

Mini Diva's parents' evening was yesterday, and I am afraid I am getting just a tad complacent with all the good reports she gets term after term. Long may it continue !

But anyway, tangible stuff that has been completed ... I promised you today that I would post some soapies ... Firstly, the special limited edition called 'The Tarot Suits', a set of 4 soaps which have been themed to each suit of the Tarot through scent:

These have been very successful - many sold on pre-order, so that I only have two sets left

In addition, I have 5 more new soaps listed:

 Aztec Queen, perennially popular - with Cocoa and scented with creamy Vanilla, it contains generous amounts of cocoa butter.

 Old Faithful - enriched with Rhassoul clay, sprinkled with Allspice, loaded with shea butter and scented with that old-fashioned gentleman's fragrance, Bay Rum: slightly piquant, sweet and spicy.

Continuing the West Indian theme, Caribbean Sunshine - enriched with lashings of shea butter, made with coconut milk, and scented with Coconut and Pineapple, this will evoke warm sunny beaches ....

Suggesting peace and relaxation, California Dreamin' contains plenty of hemp seed oil, along with shea butter, and is fragranced with a great combination of Cedarwood and Patchouli.

Helen of  Sparta (she was also known as Helen of Troy, whose beauty not only launched a thousand ships but resulted in 10 years of war and the destruction of Troy itself) is an unscented, uncolored soap made with oatmeal for gentle exfoliation, goatsmilk and honey.

Phew ! I don't have international shipping listed, but if you live outside the UK email me with what you'd like, and I will cost the postage on an individual basis for you ....

Now I'm off to Tami's Amis to check out what everyone else has completed for today !


  1. Oh man. If I hadn't just spent all that money trying to fix my cat, I'd be all up ons the Old Faithful.

  2. Wow, what beautiful soaps. I love the fact that you referred to Helen of Sparta too - that warmed my pedantic heart ;)

  3. My bathroom is awash with the scent of Aztec Queen and Old Faithful at the moment :D

  4. PinkUndine ...I did Classics (Latin,Greek & Ancient History) at University ... :-)

  5. Your soap is beautiful! I love the names and package designs.

  6. We really need to get some kind of "scent app" so we can really appreciate the full beauty of them! The looks just gorgeous!

  7. I thought I'd like one soap, and then I'd read the next description and want that more. They all sound so scrumptious!

  8. Lovely soaps, and a great collection. do you by any chance have any dead sea salt scrubs/soaps? Let me know!

  9. Wow these look amazing! Love the look of Aztec Queen x

  10. Yum! Your soaps are so beautiful! If only I weren't an ocean away . . .


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
