Pink Grapefruit Soaps

49 Comments

A few weeks ago, I got a call from a dear friend with a special request.  She was planning on throwing a baby shower, complete with baby shower games, for a friend of hers and  needed some prizes to give to her guests. She thought of me and asked if I could help her out.

We chatted for a bit and then decided on some easy bars of soap for the prizes.

Pink Grapefruit

I chose to make some more of my Pink Grapefruit bars.  They are made with Goat’s Milk and pink clay.  I scented these bars with essential oils of vanilla and grapefruit.  They are perfect for the spring time.

To complement the pink bars, I also made some white bars of soap, with Goat’s Milk and White Kaolin Clay.  For consistency, I also gave these a grapefruit scent.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a cute name in mind for these soaps yet.  Any ideas?

Final Product

Here’s the final product.  I wrapped each soap in plastic to ensure that they don’t dry out.  I then labelled each soap so that all of the ingredients are clearly listed.  Finally, I tied each pair of soap bars together with a silver elastic band.

  17. This is fantastic Alia! Before you know, you will have your own very shop of sweet smelling soaps and more hehe. I’ve really become a fan of bar soaps these past few months being able to try a few natural ones from this brand here in the UK, and goats milk soap is defo a favourite. This is such a great idea btw for a baby shower or any occasion.

    • Thanks Donah! I hadn’t used bar soap for years until I discovered goat’s milk soap. I was pleasantly surprised to find out it’s gentle, yet effective, on the skin.
