Ok, I'm going to be honest upfront, I love your comments. It's reassuring and somehow validating to know that someone, anyone, is reading what I've spent time writing. And maybe you're encouraged, enjoyed a pretty picture, had a laugh or can identify with growing gardens and the joys & struggles of 24/7 raising children. Either way I'm so glad you stop by and I want to hear from you.
So...I'm asking for help in naming my latest batch of soap. Yipee, it's a contest
(I love blog contests) with a nice prize.
You see, I made a batch of soap a couple weeks ago and on paper all the ingredients sounded lovely and I planned to call it Carrot Blossom
. But when I took it out of the box (I mold my soap in boxes lined with plastic bags) and cut it up it just didn't look or smell like Carrot Blossom
. Here's a photo and the ingredients. What do you think it should be called?
Vegetable oil, carrot juice, olive oil, coconut oil, sodium hydroxide (lye), lavender, orange, sandalwood and patchouli essential oils.
The scent is predominantly lavender and sandalwood.
Post a comment with a soap name. It could be the
most unique soap name on the planet, doesn't matter. Although if you think of a cool name that would be great. By the way, I don't sell my soaps - yet. So, your name won't make or break my soap sales. Just trying to generate some interesting comments and treat someone to a great prize.
Which is... 3 bars of my homemade soap. I currently have 3 different kinds to give:
- Coffee Soap- great for removing onion and garlic smell from fingers after cooking and also a lovely shower exfoliating bar.
- Gentle Oatmeal Soap - For sensitive skin, rich and moisturizing.
- As-of-yet Unnamed Orange Soap - smells and looks fabulous, though a little softer than I prefer, oops.
The winner will be chosen at random. I'd like to say I'll use some fancy random-prize-picker but I don't want to assume I'll get that many comments. Either way you can be assured I will not show any favoritism *smile*.
Thanks for commenting, this could be fun as I'm sure some of you are much more creative in the naming department than I.
Oh yeah, contest ends Sunday, June 15th (Father's Day) at midnight. I'll post the winner and send an e-mail. At which point I'll get your address so I can mail you your prize. Please don't post that info in your comment.
