Sneak Peek - Valencia Musk

Time for another sneak peek! Valencia Musk has a very peaceful, zen aroma - it's scented with a combination of Orange, Eucalyptus, Patchouli, and Ylang ylang. Now, before you Patchouli lovers get all excited (I know you're out there...), the patchouli note in this bar is not discernable and just offers a nice deep base to the scent. So, for those of you like me who don't care for the smell of patchouli, not to worry! The scent has got some high notes of citrus with a great musk aroma. It's just lovely!

I added some ground egyptian chamomile to this bar, the "in the mold" photo looks a bit yellow but that was due to the lighting (I made this batch on a rainy day with no nice natural light, sigh) - it's a creamy ivory color with flecks of brown from the chamomile now that it's had almost a week to cure. All in all I'm extremely pleased with the outcome!

Valencia Musk will make it's grand appearance on my Etsy site during the second week of May!


  1. I should have taken cut photos! It's strange and unusual that I didn't, ha ha. :)

  2. i love seeing these bars in the molds... gives a sense of history to the finished product ... and really tempts me to try one! :) I'm going to have to soon!
