Love that we now grow enough #lavender here on the farm to make our own wreaths. We cut and dried several armloads over the weekend, and today some of it became a wreath... #crafts

Realize that this is comparing an unseasonably dry year, in 2013, to a direly dry year in 2014. Quite honestly, I don't think I want to be here during the summer of 2014 if we don't get some significantly wet weather in the next 8 weeks. We're already rehearsing evacuation scenarios with the animals, everything else is an accepted potential loss. This is truly getting grim.

I wanted to update the look of the Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey soap with this new batch, but the challenge is that the soap naturally turns a medium tan due to the fresh honey, and because the fragrance oil has a high vanilla content. The solution was to work WITH the color, rather than fight it. Very excited to see how this batch looks after the initial cure. The more gold color should turn a medium tan, and the white (hopefully) will just become an ivory-cream color. To avoid a lumpy swirl, the exfoliating oatmeal is only in the bottom half the bar, giving a scrubby side, and a smooth, swirled side to the soap!
