Authors and editors are working hard on the next issue of the Saponifier! It’s due to be released on September first, but here’s a sneak preview:
Have you been hearing about Argan Oil recently? It’s one of the trendy oils, but for good reason. Read Marla Bosworth’s article, Moroccan Gold: the Beauty of Incorporating Argan Oil in Soaps and Skincare Products, to find out what’s behind this newly re-discovered, yet ancient oil. It’s use in the Middle East continues, but is fast becoming popular in the US. You’ll even find formulas for face, body, hair, scalp and soapmaking.
Start your own product line with this goldmine!
You might remember guest author Larry Strattner, and his humorous article involving learning to make soap. You’ll be happy to note that he is back again with yet another article, My Soap Went Up in Smoke. A title like that will lead your imagination everywhere! I can’t wait to hear about his latest episode in soapmaking with his mentor, Liz.
Stay tune for more previews!
You might like to know what else you can look forward to in the next edition of the Saponifier.
We strive to make each issue a meaningful, can’t-put-down read for you, and the coming issue is no exception.
Watch for a fantastic article on floating soaps and candles, and another on amazing gift bags to put them all in! Your friends and family will be in awe.
With summer on the horizon, you’ll want to know all about “sexy summer skin.’ Stay tuned! As we all know, the sun, water, and sand all take a toll on our skin, but now we’ve got great ideas for keeping your skin in top shape.
Finally, get the scoop on QR Codes and what they can do for you. QR codes, you ask? I don’t want to give anything away judy yet, but you’ll find out all about it in the next issue! Something new for your business is just around the corner.
Until then, make soap–or candles–or bath and body products!
Are you thinking about the next issue of the Saponifier?
I can tell you that we’ve all been working very hard on this one, to make it compelling to read, and full of information you can use!
For instance, what do you know about Purple Salsify? Uh huh, that’s what I thought–but you’ll learn all about it in our Herbal Monograph.
Something that’s likely to be more familiar, Eucalyptus essential oil, will also be discussed. Get ready with your favorite Koala Bear. Even though you probably know something about eucalyptus already, we’re betting you’ll learn some new tidbits that you can use.
Got kids? We’ve got a great article on products for children in the Herbal Wisdom column.
Don’t forget! Subscriptions are BOGO now, but for a limited time. Buy one subscription at normal price, get the second one free. What a fabulous gift for a soapmaking friend!
I was recently thinking to myself that February is awfully long for being the shortest month!
Does it feel that way to you? The holidays are over, and we’ve survived January. But, by the time we get into February, I just want winter to be over.
Something to remember, however, is that winter brings with it more opportunities to make soap, candles, and b&b products! What’s not to like about that? Just last week, I whipped up a nice batch of shower scrub, and have soap on the agenda for tomorrow.
On March 1st, your new issue of the Saponifier will be released, and you’ll find that our writers have been busy searching out the best for you in making goodies for The Spa Experience. We think you’ll love the formulas you’ll find, and will be inspired by the ideas presented. This issue alone will keep you busy, happily creating new goodies for bath time, whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist.
