3 of my favourite things 😍

In the 7 years I’ve been making soap (amazing!) I have tried hundreds of additives and scores of recipes. Now I’ve come to a place where I tend to go back to 2 or 3 recipes but I can still have fun with techniques and presentation.

These are my current 3 favourites (from left to right):

  • Oatmeal Milk and Honey
  • AC + BC Deep Detox
  • Golden Calendula

All soaps feature coconut oil and shea butter as a standard base and may also include olive oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, palm oil and/ palm kernel oil (hmmm…ive not used PKO in over a year actually).

So what do you think? Which soap is your favourite judging by looks alone? 😁

Scrubs scrubs everywhere…

I started sharing my sea salt scrubs with Instafam and the response has been tremendous.

The salt scrubs are different from sugar scrubs in that they are a more intense version and trace minerals get deposited which suits most skin types…as long as you don’t have broken skin. That’s an experience not worth having 😁😁😁

It all begins with the best quality ingredients. This baking cocoa is awesome!

Sorry for the poor quality picture. Peep the globs of organic cocoa butter. The combination has me mentally reaching for a spoon. Yummm

In goes the exfoliants. This is my Salted ChocOrange scrub so ive added organic orange peel powder and sea salt.

Voila! It’s all come together nicely.

Salt scrubs are great to use at night. I sleep like a baby after a good scrub and a couple of people have told me the same. Take only what you need into the bath/shower. Scrub from ankle to shoulder. Rinse off and say hello to beautiful soft skin. This scrub is emulsified so it will leave behind a light layer of lotion on your skin. 💕💕💕💕

Thanks for reading this far!

I finally did it… 😁

Its been many nights and many days since I was here. Thanks to the three people who kept reminding me of the treasure I abandoned here…I appreciate you ladies.

So, my soapmaking journey has mainly been about bar soaps but every now again someone will ask me about liquid soap…specifically for something a certain American Dr has been selling for over 60 years 😉.

Well, after 4 years of searching for a specific ingredient I could trust and trying out a couple of batches I can now confidently add liquid soap to our menu 🎉🎉🎉

Introducing the Nini Junior Moisturising Castile Soap for babies and sensitive adults.

It’s a simple clean formula with no unnecessary ingredients.

For the sharp eyed ones among you 😁😁😁 you have also picked up on something significant. Nini Junior happened without much fanfare in december 2016 because Nini Body Treats has a lot going on and i didnt want the products in this babies-and-sensitive-adults range to get lost.

So if you are on Instagram kindly show us some 💕💕💕 @ninijunior.ng

Thank you for reading this far and I will be back soon.
