Lemongrass Gradient Soap

I’m so excited to share these beautiful bars of soap with you guys! I tried a new technique—a gradient (or ombre) pour—for the very first time, and I love how it turned out. These bars are inspired by all things lemongrass, with that herbal-citrus scent and a slow fade from yellow to green, just like a stalk of lemongrass. An ample dusting of gold mica on the top of the bars is mostly creative license (I’ve yet to find any gold-capped lemongrass in nature!), but I couldn’t resist 😝

Mango Mango Whipped Sugar Scrub

Today we’re making a fluffy pot of oh-so-happy mango scented whippy bath time fun in the form of an emulsified Mango Mango Whipped Sugar Scrub. This soft scrub is packed with sparkly, scrubby sugar, decadent mango scent, and skin-loving goodness. It comes together wonderfully quickly, and is the perfect thing to perk up your bathroom and possibly even get yourself feeling amped up for shorts season!

Soothing Hand Butter

This rich, creamy Soothing Hand Butter is an absolute delight to massage into hands that could use a bit of pampering. It stars some ultra-creamy emollients and beautiful botanical-infused oils to create a stunning, sumptuous skin treat. I’ve used a slightly unorthodox thickening method to ensure the end product isn’t at all a typical salve or balm—it’s a true butter infused with all kinds of goodness, and I think you’ll love it!

Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash

This Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash is all about the bubbles—rich cascades of mango-scented, orangey clouds of lather that make hand washing a treat. Nothing needs to be heated so you can just stir everything together and you’re off to the races. I’ve already made over a kilo of this stuff so I can happily wash my hands with something reminiscent of a daiquiri for the foreseeable future. Awww, yeah.

Soothing Under Eye Gel

Today we’re doing a thing that is long overdue—a Soothing Under Eye Gel! It’s part of our soothing series, and it is lovely. It’s also the first recipe I’m sharing using Aristoflex AVC, a very cool cold-process gelling agent and emulsifier that I’ve been working with for over three years now, but for some reason or another nothing has made it to the blog—until now!
