One Day

It has been one year I have been making soaps. Exactly one year before, I took a day off to make soaps. I sent my girls to school/crèche and I decided to give it  a try and to see if I am able to make a soap 🙂 .  Since that moment, making soaps has become not only a hobby, but also an addiction, a passion, a refugee, an anti-stress remedy,  a friend, a holiday and a welcome pause in the rush of daily life.

I want to thank all of you for the time spent looking at my soaps and for your lovely words!

Soap made of: coconut oil, red palm oil, olive oil, safflower oil, castor oil, shea butter, carrot juice, activated charcoal, clary sage essential oil and orange essential oil.

Bedankt Mark voor de mooie foto’s.

    Geniet maar lekker. Voor mij voelt het hetzelfde sinds vorig jaar juni (eerste zeep) zo herkenbaar. Lieve groet,

    Wow, that looks like a sunset! I made my first soap in January, but it seems like I´ve made them much longer.

      Yes, I know that feeling, Marika! Anyway, this day remains a special one and you can not forget it ;)!

    Congratulations on one year of soaping Natalia! I am sure it must have been one happy, bubbly year. 🙂
    Is that lovely orange color only from red palm oil? I always wanted to try that out in soap for the color. The swirls came out beautifully too!

      Thanks Nitya! The orange colour is from red palm oil and carrot juice.

    Felicitari Natalia, iti doresc multi ami inainte de sapunarit, sunt tare frumoase produsele pe care le faci. Mai ales, iti doresc sa ai multe satisfactii de pe urma muncii tale, asa cum meriti de altfel! E foarte dragalas sapunelul acesta, si eu sunt setata pe portocaliu, probabil pentru ca e toamna:)

    Congratulations on your firßt anniversary of soaping, Natalia!
    And thank you for sharing your adventures in the soaping world with us! I am very much looking forward to your next posts and new soaps.
    Today’s soap is a beautiful one, as are all your other soaps. And the setting for the pictures, the pictures themselves are great, too!

    Ce culoare frumoasa ai obtinut din ulei de palmier rosu si suc de morcov, se armonizeaza minunat cu negrul de la carbune. Am cumparat si eu carbune pentru a face un sapun, m-am tot gindit ca iese negreala in apa cind ma spal cu el si am aminat mereu !

    1. mijnzeep1 says:

      Geta, sa stii ca la sapunul asta( pentru ca ll folosesc acum), nu iese deloc negru la spalat.Dar e un sapun facut in iulie, si sa stii ca nu am pus mult carbune! Poti incerca, e un colorant natural cu atatea proprietati benefice pt piele!

    Oh,I just realized: your anniversary is on my hubby’s b-day! What a coincidence!

    Imaginea ce s-a format ca model in urma turnarii sapunului ma duce cu gandul la zilele de toamna cand soarele [partea portocalia] vrea sa-si faca aparitia printre norii caracteristici ai acestui sezon.Foarte frumos.Felicitari pt anul de sapunareala implinit iar pt viitor iti doresc sa faci sapunuri cel putin la fel de frumoase ,si in mod special sa atingi daca se poate perfectiunea calitatii dupa asteptarile tale.

    1. mijnzeep1 says:
