Mellow Yellow--This is a fragrance free buttermilk bastile-type recipe with olive and coconut oils. Contains pureed carrots. Great soap for a young child.
Nothin' Fancy--The soap that started it all! Nothin' Fancy is a basic bastile soap made with over 90% olive oil plus a touch of castor oil to provide hardness to the bar. This recipe serves as the basis for most of my bastile soaps.
|Nothin' Fancy. Ugh! Ever try to take a good picture of something white?|

Reggae--Believe it or not this soap has no added colors or fragrances. It's made with red, red wine (Merlot in this instance) which gives it a sweet and earthy fragrance and deep, deep rusty red color. Superfatted with cocoa butter.
Sowing the Wild--A bastile bar made with oats and honey. I've made this soap many times and because of the nature of the honey I add, it never comes out looking the same way twice. In this particular batch, the honey caramelized to produce a rich, dark brown color and it smells divinely of honey caramel.
