Bramble Berry Soap Supplies

2011 January 18

A belated Merry Christmas to me! An order just arrived from Bramble Berry Soap Making Supplies in Bellingham, WA. I’m not actually intending to make soap. Yet.  This order is for a couple of projects: hand balm and deodorant.

I take on so many projects that are hard on my hands. Additionally, dry, cracked hands and brittle nails seem to be a family curse. I’m really excited to try this tutorial for hand balm, created by Amber’s Ambry. Looks pretty easy!

Speaking of easy, I also came across a great tutorial for making deodorant over at the Soapaholics Anonymous blog. Heidi uses baking soda and cornstarch as the main ingredients; supposedly soda deodorizes by killing germs and starch helps absorb wetness. We’ll see! I’m willing to give it a shot though, in an effort to avoid antiperspirant’s aluminum from seeping into my pores.

I’ll be sure to document both projects, but in the mean time, check out my new Bramble Berry goodies:

Jojoba oil, shea butter, essential oils, beeswax

Jojoba oil

Beeswax pastilles

    Heidi’s deodorant is the BEST, and Amber’s balm is great as well. And I LOVE Bramble Berry’s 10x orange – it’s by far the best holding citrus in soap. And if you’re starting with these, I think that soap can’t be far behind! :) Have fun!

    Thanks for the input, Sherrie. I still have these scrumptious supplies waiting. I must get on that!

    On the subject of soap, I must reveal that, though I love the idea of handmade bar soaps, I don’t love the sogginess that goes along with them. I think this invention is genius: http://www.nathaliestaempfli.com/index.php?/graduation/soap-flakes/

    We need to figure out a DIY for this, since it’s not available to purchase! Ya know, for people like me. :)
