2014 Holiday Soaps are Ready!

Our annual soap show at the Expo is right around the corner, November 7 and 8! (Find details HERE.) We've made a few tweaks to the formula, and you will find that the bars are harder and longer lasting than ever before. Also, all of our soaps have a generous helping of coconut milk and shea butter in every bar. This year's lineup includes:

"Naked" - All-natural, snowy-white pure soap with no color or fragrance. Just pure, simple goodness. 

"Andes Chocolate Mint" - Looks and smells just like a yummy, delicious Andes Mint.

"Happy Elf" - We've brightened up the usual dark red and green Christmas palette in this bar with a spritely pink, cream and green. Smells like Christmas in a bar of soap.

"Stormy Skies" - Smells just like the ground after a nice, hard rain here in Oregon. Earthy, musky, damp - one of our most popular bars with both men and women. 

"Pink Grapefruit Poppyseed" - so tart and yummy, it will make your lips pucker.

"Lavender Oatmeal" - Introduced last year, and continues to be one of our best sellers. 

"Lilac Bouquet" - Smells just like a lilac tree in full bloom.

"Oats and Almond" - The very first bar we made, continues to be our top seller and most beloved bar of our customers to this day. Smells like Almond Biscotti or Amaretto. 

"Mystic Journey" - Smells just like Victoria's Secret "Pink Sugar", topped with transparent blue and purple layers and speckled with flecks of silver on top. 

"Sweet Pumpkin Spice" - Everything a good autumn-themed bar should be...earthy brown with hints of pumpkin orange throughout; sweet and spicy pumpkin pie fragrance; generously sprinkled with cinnamon and allspice. Yum!

Holiday Soaps are Here

Oh the glory of a soap shop filled with holiday scents...and they are almost done curing!! This year we are offering:

Holiday Sparkle (snowy pine mixed with other familiar holiday smells)

Peppermint Candy Ice Cream (Candy Cane is the real name, but it smells way more creamy and delicious than plain old candy canes)

Sweet Pumpkin Spice - nothing to elaborate on here, what more needs to be said?

Blueberry Muffin - if any of you are batter addicts like me, and can't help but lick the bowl and spoon whenever you make that cheap Blueberry Muffin Mix from Jiffy, then you will love this bar. Smells exactly the same. 

Pure Vanilla Extract - Deep, dark brown rich yummy vanilla. Smells just like the bottle of Pure Vanilla in your baking cupboard. Yum!!! 

Autumn Apple - Do you like apples? Do you like Cinnamon? Do you like Autumn? Then will like this soap! 

Sunny Citrus - who doesn't need a burst of sunny, uplifting citrus this time of year? When the dreary doldrums of winter hit, take this bar to the bath and be cured. 

Oatmeal Lavender - Ok, this isn't technically a holiday soap, but it's good enough to be on the list.

Oats & Almond - Ditto.

And just a reminder, all of our handmade gentle soaps are made with a huge helping of nourishing Shea Butter and cream Coconut Milk.

And now what you've all been waiting for, SOAP PICTURES of course! Thanks for visiting, have a great holiday season and enjoy the difference handmade soap makes!!!

Starting Off With...Some New Soaps!

What better way to start off our new blog than with a sneak peek at some of the new soaps just made! These have over a month to cure before they are ready, but I can't resist showing them off now. I will post on my FB page when they are officially available for sale, and will list them on my website and Etsy store for purchase at that time. So...without further ado, here they are!

This is "Lilac Bouquet" - same fragrance as the one we've made before, but new design and with the addition of Coconut Cream and Tussah Silk!

This one is "Honeysuckle" and smells like the real deal...these bars are adorned with Calendula petals and make a beautiful gift or guest soap.

Serendipity Soapworks Now Has a Blog!

Hi everyone, this is Serendipity Soapwork's new blog and the first post! I decided to start writing a blog  so that 1) I don't clutter up my FB page with way too many posts and annoy everybody, 2) so I can keep everyone updated on the latest and greatest soaps as they are fresh out of the mold, and 3) to serve as a reminder to myself what I made and when and how I did it, in case I lose my soap notes :)

I hope you enjoy experiencing with me the creative and exciting journey of handmade soap, I'm sure we'll have some good laughs as I fully intend to post pics of any major "fails" as well as my successes! Thanks so much for joining my blog, please feel free to ask questions, offer advice, or just say "hello"...the only thing not welcome is spam, I'm sure we can all agree on that one. Thanks and enjoy!
