Featured Shop of Week 12/19/11

This week I am featuring shop EweniqueDesigns.

EweniqueDesigns' luxury soap is made using the cold process method of soap making, where sodium hydroxide is mixed with oils and butters resulting in a chemical reaction which produces soap. Only small batches are made at a time, and each bar is carefully cut by hand. EweniqueDesigns has developed recipes/formulas that result in soap that produces a silky, bubbly lather that gently cleans the skin. Each soap is made with fine vegetable oils and shea/cocoa/mango butters, scented with fragrance oils, and colored with body safe oxides and ultramarines or natural powders like spirulina or cocoa powder. Some may include extra additives like goat milk, oatmeal, calendula, or salt for an out of the ordinary soap. These soaps are different shapes and textures, and most will weigh a little over 4 ounces. EweniqueDesigns strives to create soaps that are a delight to the senses - fragrant, beautifully colored and textured.

The process of making useful handmade items that are both pretty and practical is enjoyable and satisfying. As well as being a soap maker, EweniqueDesigns quilts and knits. Over the years, EweniqueDesigns has made numerous quilts, knit afghans, patchwork bags and pouches. Now these items are being shared with you.
