In honor of the Supermoon this evening, I made one of my Full moon soaps to commemorate it. It is scented with a blend that started off headed in the Eau de Cologne direction, but got waylaid when I added a bit of violet leaf floral wax and a bit of my Hobo's Gold #13 (see below). Since my elderberry bush is in full flower right now and is taunting me with gorgeous scent and lovely things to be made for skin, I decided to add some dried elder flowers to the soap. I think I was pretty successful in representing the moon I photographed. Hope you agree.
My Hobo's gold blends are a mish-mash of different essential oils that were combined from no longer used products and scent experiments. I chose the #13 blend since it already had and Eau do Cologne blend as a predominant part of the blend.
I like to walk the line between the creative and the analytical. Making soaps and other body care products allows me to explore both sides. I am always in awe of bees and what gifts they provide for us. There are many things to be learned....
