September Soaps

September has always been one of the busiest months of the year. Especially now that we have two schoolchildren at home, no toddlers any longer… . Discovering that your child wants to follow a new extraschool activity, thinking twice before deciding to let them participate or not, trying to get it organized,…all these things makes this period more messy than we wanted. …Last year we could arrange everything during the weekend, but this year wasn’t possible any longer. So even on Wednesdays we are busy being taxi driver!
I don’t really like it when my kids are too busy, as I find it important to see them at home too …even if this means sometimes they get a bit bored. On the other hand I didn’t have the chance myself of following music, arts, or other activities, and in a way I regret it. With some luck and organization, we got almost everything arranged.
In the meantime, I discover new hobbies and attractions and before it gets too late, I want to try them all. Making soaps has become such a lovely part of my weekly activities that I don’t consider it a hobby anymore. Of course I like it and the moments when we cut the soaps are always special…

It’s been a while I posted some soaps here so I here are some of the lately made soaps:

Jasmin Marriage Flavor Soap made of kombucha .

I wanted this soaps to be just a little bit red, but sometimes accidents happen when making soap 😉

Walnut shell powder soap made out of walnut milk in place of water.

    My kids are teenagers now but I still remember the time when I was taxi driver myself trying to support them to participate in all activities they wanted 🙂 Now they are on their own and somehow I miss that time… I am impressed that you manage to make all those soaps. All of them are beautiful but this read one is breathtaking!

      I know I will miss it, Gordana! Yours are older and they already help you making soaps maybe too? 🙂

    Ah Natalia, I’m kind of hoping I will have more time for soaping when my kids are older (now 5 & 2) not less – eek!! I also really, REALLY want to learn to crochet, but when I’ll find the time I don’t know 😉
    PS I LOVE love love the red clay soap!!

      Thank you, Vicki! Nicer than i thought :).

      Your kids are small too. Our little one is 5, not an easy age, I hope yours is listening more than our little monster ;).

    Sapunul natural ramine favoritul meu, o idee excelenta ai avut sa faci sapun cu lapte de nuci in loc de apa !

    1. Natalia says:

      Da, Geta, si eu ador sapunul natural, cred ca devin/sunt repetitiva deja cand e vorba despre asta.

    Beautiful soaps, as always! Don’t worry, yours kids will grow sooner than you ever hoped, and then you’ll have more time for your own activities – or just being home, if you like.

    Where do you buy that Australian red clay? That makes marvelous red soaps and lip sticks!

    1. Natalia says:

      I just don’t want to see them grow up too fast, Sini!
      Thank you, the clay I bought on New directions UK shop, i hope it helps!

        I know, I was just teasing you 😉 About the kids, I mean. But you really can’t keep them in the bottle, can you? They need to live and experience their own lives.

  5. Lovely soaps Natalia. Your jasmine is beautiful. Did you dry it yourself? Enjoy your young children. Time flies! They are lucky to have a mother who takes such good care of their life environment!

      Merci beaucoup pour ces mots gentils!
      Non, j’ai acheté les fleurs.

    Beautiful soaps, Natalia! The dried flowers on top are a really nice touch. I especially like the purple flowers against the red soap.

      Thank you, Jenny! I also liked the way the mallow petals suit the red clay color!
