 at Susan's Sumptuous Soaps! 


A NEW CONDITIONING SHAMPOO BAR FRAGRANCE ~ YLANG YLANG, ORANGE AND LEMON ESSENTIAL OILS:

I loved my new blend of Orange, Lemon and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils so much that I decided to make another silicone free Conditioning Shampoo Bar using this blend. It smells fabulous and these essential oils are great for your hair. It is for all scalp conditions. This recipe has been formulated by me to clean and condition your hair and scalp, and leave hair clean, healthy, soft, and shiny. A nominal amount of soap on a sponge will produce volumes of lather! Every bar contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and Tussah Silk for radiant, silky hair.  

--- YLANG YLANG essential oil has been used for centuries as a hair conditioner by many different cultures and continues to be used today to treat fine and limp hair. It is believed to penetrate deep into the hair follicles to provide moisture and leave hair soft and silky. It is also reputed to promote healthy hair growth and help treat split ends. 

--- ORANGE essential oil is moisturizing for dry, damaged and brittle hair. It also strengthens the hair roots and stimulates growth.

--- LEMON essential oil stimulates the scalp and adds natural shine. It is also said to help with dandruff.

COFFEE SOAP ~ Great for chefs, gardeners, mechanics and more!

Coffee can provide more than a caffeine jolt to energize you in the morning. I was surprised to learn that coffee is touted as the world’s greatest source of antioxidants, making it a great addition to skin care.

Anti-aging: The antioxidants in caffeine can attack and eliminate the free radicals that are responsible for causing premature aging of skin.  

Helps fight wrinkles and fine lines: The caffeine present in coffee can firm the appearance of skin, helping to reduce signs of wrinkles and fine lines.

Soothes sensitive skin: The anti-inflammatory properties of caffeine help reduce redness and inflammation.

Absorbs odors: Coffee and their grounds are one of nature’s best deodorizers, making coffee soap excellent for kitchen and other use to remove tough odors. 

Detoxifying and cleansing: It is believed that the enzymes found in coffee can aid in detoxifying and cleansing skin, making it an excellent choice for gardeners, mechanics, and those with acne.

Exfoliation: Ground coffee beans exfoliate skin naturally to brighten and revive a dull complexion. Additionally, the acid in coffee gives you some chemical exfoliation on top of the mechanical exfoliation.

This soap also has pumice for an additional boost of cleansing and exfoliation.

My coffee soap has been made using my goat’s milk soap recipe. As such, it contributes extra moisturizing qualities, cleansing and other benefits. As with my other goat’s milk soaps, it has tussah silk for extra luxury, and kaolin clay to help stimulate circulation to the skin while gently cleansing, detoxifying, exfoliating and softening.

In addition to the natural fragrance provided by the coffee, it has been lightly fragranced with espresso.

NEW FRAGRANCES:

BLUE MAN:  This is a duplication of the popular men’s cologne, Aquolina Blue Sugar. The base note of Black Patchouli blends perfectly with Orange Peel, Sparkling Mandarin, Coriander Leaves, Star Anise and Venezuela Tonka. It’s surprisingly sweet and majorly masculine.

PEPPERBERRY: A spicy, sensual mixture that starts out with traditional Black Pepper notes mixed with Black Orchid. It is accentuated with All Spice, Wildberries and Bulgarian Rose, and finishes up with heavier notes of Pine Needle, Oak and just a small hint of Vanilla. It is absolutely intoxicating.

VETYVER:  A sensual blend inspired by the Bath & Body Works fragrance. Top notes of lemon and rosemary; middle notes containing florals, sandalwood and patchouli; and finished off with musk and vetiver. Although made with men in mind, women love this one too.

COCONUT MILK SOAP WITH AVOCADO & SHEA BUTTERS:

In addition to Hungarian Lavender, Lemon Basil, Pepperberry and Unscented, this one is now available in Spearmint Eucalyptus; an absolutely delectable spa-type fragrance! Invigorating eucalyptus and garden spearmint are brought together by lavender, citrus and a touch of calendula for a very energizing ~ but still mild ~ fragrance.

SEA SALT SOAP:

Sea salt is not only a natural detoxifier, absorbing toxins from the skin, but it is full of minerals beneficial to the skin. Unlike table salt, sea salt does not go through the same manufacturing processes so it is able to retain its beneficial minerals. It is also said to contribute to increased circulation, antiseptic effects, soft skin without a greasy feel, and reduction in fluid retention. Ancient Greeks and Romans used warm seawater as a therapy to help them relax. It is believed that sea salt bath therapy provides psychological benefits and improves quality of sleep.

There are two types of soaps made with sea salt. In the typical salt bar, salt is stirred into the soap batter before it is poured and offers exfoliation properties. In the Soleseife, or “German Brine” soap, the salt is dissolved in the water, so you get the benefits of bathing in salt water without the exfoliating properties of undissolved salt. This Sea Salt Soap is German Brine soap.

This wonderful soap is available in two fragrances:

  • PEPPERBERRY – A spicy, sensual mixture that starts out with traditional Black Pepper notes mixed with Black Orchid. It is accentuated with All Spice, Wildberries and Bulgarian Rose, and finishes up with heavier notes of Pine Needle, Oak and just a small hint of Vanilla. It is absolutely intoxicating.

  • SPEARMINT EUCALYPTUS - ​An absolutely delectable spa-type fragrance! Invigorating eucalyptus and garden spearmint are brought together by lavender, citrus and a touch of calendula for a very energizing ~ but still mild ~ fragrance.
