Grapefruit Patchouli Soap

March 7, 2014

Grapefruit Patchouli soap is back in stock and is available at the Harrisonburg, VA Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM.  This is a great time for patchouli lovers; I have four soaps available,  all  containing dark patchouli. These are listed by the strength of the patchouli:  Dark Patchouli,  Grapefruit Patchouli,  Orange Patchouli and Siren’s Song with just a touch of patchouli.  Starting in April, cross your fingers, I will be a full-time soap maker. I will be able to blog a whole lot more .  Make sure to find Magellan’s Gift™ on facebook for the latest information and pictures.  My goal by the end of summer will be a real website where you can purchase my soap online.

Gift of the Magi ~ A Handcrafted Swirled Soap

This is the last batch of my Gift of the Magi Soap.   It is scented with a blend of essential oils featuring Omani frankincense and dark Kenyan myrrh.  The cost of this scent blend has increased and will not be offered again unless next year’s harvest of its ingredients drop.  I love my essential oils, but the prices are up and down like any farm crop, then throw in wars and government strife, and the product becomes very expensive indeed.  So, I wanted this last batch to be special, as my gift to you.  I’ve created a top swirl of charcoal and gold mica and there are only 24 bars.  They will be available starting Nov 16.

May your Holidays be warm and  filled with great scent.  Peace on Earth for all!

Handcrafted Spice Fire Soap

Handcrafted Spiced Fire Soap

Handcrafted soap scented with sweet orange, cinnamon, clove and cardamom essential oil. Enhanced with pumpkin seed oil and hand stamped with skin safe mica.

I’m very pleased to announce Spice Fire Soap with its scent of sweet orange, clove, cinnamon and cardamom essential oil.  A perfect gift for both the fall and winter holidays or an indulgent treat for the morning shower for yourself.  Spice scent just radiates warmth and well being for me.  My morning shower is my time to ready myself for what the world holds, both good and bad.  When my world is rocky and scary, scent helps ground me and my life journeys seem more like adventures.  I’ve created this recipe with olive oil, sustainable organic palm oil, coconut oil, pumpkin seed oil and castor oil for your pleasure and mine!

Magellan’s Gift ™ Handcrafted Soap in Stamped Bags

Magellan’s Gift™ Soap is usually purchased and then wrapped in Eco deli wrap.  A  card is always included listing ingredients, weight, batch number,where it is made, how to reach me and other tips.  For gift giving you have a few options.   Tonight I was stamping bags and preparing an order for a client and thought you might like to see them.  I have several designs with and without my logo.
