Last week was a busy week for my soap business. Between wrapping and making soap, getting a wholesale order together, and delivering soap to galleries to restock, it made for several busy days. I'm pretty excited about my newest soap, Back To The Garden. There are floral and herbal essential oils in it, as well as aloe, hempseed oil, mint from the garden, and a bit of local clay. I've used floral fabrics for the inner wrapper, and paired some with a packet of flower seeds and garden gloves. I made another batch today, as I only have two left, and they are to be delivered to our local hardware store.
I haven't kept up very well with my Frugal Accomplishments this past week. All the usual has been happening... using homemade soaps in bathroom and laundry, hanging laundry on the line, washing plastic bags for reuse, composting, adding vegi scraps to the broth bag. I harvested chard, broccoli, basil and oregano. I made a chard gratin dish, broccoli and egg fried rice, and used the herbs in pasta sauce. I continue to use my homemade deodorant. I cut a bouquet from the garden.
