Alchemic Muse Handmade Soaps
A couple of weeks ago I was browsing through Etsy and decided I needed to purchase some soap. You're probably thinking..."Doesn't she make soap already? Why would she buy it if she can make it?" You're right...I could make soap....in fact, I make a lot of soap...but I don't make this particular soap!
You see, each soap maker has a different imagination and uses different ingredients. If you truly love soap, you feel the need to smell and experience ALL kinds of soap. And lots of it!
I ended up ordering from three companies and one of them was Alchemic Muse.
Well! Once again, I wasn't disappointed. When I ordered, I couldn't decide which ones to pick so I asked Karen to pick for me. The order was for 4 quarter size bars but Karen threw in a couple of slivers of some others as well. I'm so glad she did because my two favorites are from the little slivers...don't get me wrong...they are all fantastic! But Loukoum and Ginger Cake...well, they take the cake!! I just love the smell of those two. Yummy!
Now about the lather. Another Wow! It starts off with some big bubbles and then progresses into a thick frothy foam. Very rich and creamy. To die for actually!
I like that her labels list all the ingredients and I noticed that all the soaps I received are palm free. Instead she uses cocoa, mango and shea butters. No wonder they feel so great!
