Soap list

I have been thinking of what kind of soaps I want to experiment with. I want to try scents and flavors that are familiar to me from growing up and living in Alabama. So far here are some I have come up with.....

  • Sweetgum
  • Forest fern
  • Buttermilk
  • Gardenia
  • Butterfly bush
  • Black-eyed Susan
  • Southern pine
  • Trillium
I also want to try some scents and flavors that I just plain like and hope others will enjoy. Here are some  am thinking of....

  • Goat's milk and honey
  • Lavender
  • Ginger and lemon
The butterfly bush in my backyard is in bloom. It's scent is flooding the whole yard. It will be one of the first I will try. Here is a picture of the bush taken today after a hard rain. (Notice the "river" in the background.)

A new adventure

I am going to try my hand at making homemade soap. I am planning to tie the soaps into Alabama scenery or culture. Check in periodically to check out my next step.
