Evanescent Bars

Sensual pleasures are like soap bubbles, sparkling, evanescent. The pleasures of intellect are calm, beautiful, sublime, ever enduring, climbing upward to the borders of the unseen world.-John Aughey
Scented with the alluring effervescence of fruity champagne and tiny fizzy bubbles. Activated charcoal has been added for a dark, dramatic effect. 

Limited bars of Evanescent have been added to our website.

On Winter Break

With temperatures averaging below zero, the Soapmaker is happily out on Winter Break. 
Precious moments spent with my family all warm and snuggly by the fire, brushing up on all my domestic skills.

Drinking way too many cups of coffee, as I take a little time to reboot, plan my Spring garden, work on taxes and refocus my thoughts for the year ahead....

Coming Soon!
 Stumbling across something good without looking for it....
that's Serendipity!
That's how we feel about our new Serendipity Bars scented with a subtle Autumn Apple. Not what we intended to create but overall happy with the outcome!
These bars are bigger than our regular sized "House" bars.

Farm Chicks 2016

Well, another Farm Chicks closed  out and in the books for Cedar House Soaps. What an amazing event....We literally were "Junk Drunk" from all the vintage goodies that curators packed into the Spokane Fairgrounds and Expo Center this past weekend.

If you have never gone...It truly is a sight to behold!

A special "Thank You" to all who came and supported our little adventure and for the love and support from my family and friends. I couldn't have pulled it off without you!

It's pretty awesome when you can get your teenage son to come help at the show!

Belly Flop

Keeping it "REAL".... The picture of the gorgeous soap top that I posted yesterday had so much promise. I came to work today with excitement at getting a chance to cut this beauty into lovely bars.

My imagination was swimming with visions of how beautiful it was going to be....

Well, that was a big fat zero....It was an utter Belly Flop! 

Testing a new fragrance and a new swirl technique. Safe to say this fragrance will not be getting the green light.

As you can see even the Soap shop has BLOOPERS wink emoticon

Dark side

Dark and alluring....playing around on the dark side using black in a soap for a cool contrast.

This one is scented Lavender Mint.

When I poured it on Friday...I was not  to happy with the results...

Came in on Monday morning and cut into this one and was pleasantly surprised!

On the drying racks now and will be available in May.

Worth the wait

If you've been following along for a bit...

You may remember my post clear back in November on  Visions of Spring

 Well, it was worth the wait.....because the Tulips are now in full bloom at Cedar House Soaps!

Spring has definitely sprung and we are enjoying the blooms ;-)

Swirling around

Making and restocking of Cucumber Melon...this one is well behaved and gives me plenty of time to play around with swirling.

Just cut

  Just cut this one so it still has to cure...scent is a plethora of Citrus, Grapefruit, Champagne, Melon, Lily of the valley, Jasmine & Lotus Blossoms

Spring has sprung and Dandelions are coming up like gangbusters...We let our chickens free range, so weed control is not an option.... 

What to do....what to do?

Make soap of course! 

Much like lemonade out of lemons. These Spring dandelion blossoms ( all 1050 of them.....yes, I counted) will be steeped in Olive oil and made into soap very soon!

Stamp it

Playing with the soap stamp today....Sometimes the stamp sticks but the texture of the soap was perfect today and it all worked out!

All the trimmings

Did I ever mention that each bar of handmade soap is trimmed by hand....
and that each bar has 8 edges... 
and to trim a batch of soap, I trim 336 edges....

All for the Love of Soap!

Here is our newest soap batch "Young at Heart"....Will be available on  April 15th.

Back at it!

After a Winter's break and a slow start to getting back in the game. 

Heavy Spring rains and some flooding slowing me down a little, but I am happy to be back in the Soap shop once again.

This week was spent wrapping cured soaps, organizing and making plans for future batches of soap.

Shrink wrapped Blackberry Bliss Soap Bars

Looking forward to another great season of soap making!
