Delicious Autumn! soaps made and a new cream

Finally, I've made both batches of the winning Delicious Autumn! books.


Secrets ~ inspired by The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield ~ a blend of jasmine, orange blossom, ginger, lemon and rich, hot cocoa. The florals hit you first, followed by smooth, hot chocolate and tangy ginger and lemon.


Sugar Bones ~ inspired by The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury ~ carved pumpkins, candy corn, sweet, smoky tobacco, Autumn woods, moss, a twist of lemon and vetiver

Also in the works is a new cream, just in time for winter-dry skin. This cream is heavier than my lotion and comes in a 4 oz. jar. Loaded with creamy shea butter and heavier oils like olive and avocado oils blended with jojoba oil and a bit of cyclomethicone to cut down the greasiness factor.

I'm looking for a few testers to get a real opinion of this cream. The first five people to send me their address (latherati@yahoo.com) will receive a FREE full size jar of cream in Sinister to test. I only ask that you give me your honest opinion. I'd like to have this perfected in a couple of weeks.

On a last note, the Christmas season is fast approaching and you know what that means? A new Latherati Challenge! I'm hoping to post it next week so keep your eyes peeled for an opportunity to let me know your favorite Christmas-themed books. If I choose yours, you'll receive Latherati goodies inspired by that book!

New Jane Austen soap - Fanciful

Fanciful, inspired by Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

The last of six Jane Austen-inspired fragrances is now complete :-) Fanciful, inspired by Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen is now curing! It's a gorgeous blend of lavender, cedarwood, cardamom, amber, pepper, vetiver and tonka bean. Herbal and earthy but sweet. Amazing!
